Summary

From Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the authors of the top 10 best seller The Wife Between Us, comes An Anonymous Girl - an electrifying novel about doubt, passion and deadly obsession....

Seeking women ages 18-32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed.

When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money and leave. But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive, and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr Shields may know what she’s thinking...and what she’s hiding. As Jess’ paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what is real in her life and what is one of Dr Shields’ manipulative experiments. Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.

Totally implausible but great fun

A rollicking good story about a young woman who gets sucked into a manipulative psychiatrist’s web of mind games. It’s chock full of hyperbole (endless cliffhangers, twists and situations causing adrenal gland overdrive) but no less entertaining for it. Recommended.

Intriguing tale

This book kept me guessing, all the way through. Strange tale but fascinating. I often wonder what sort of brain thinks these book up.

Utterly pointless

The whole story seems utterly pointless... I gave up after 5.5 hours. I loved The Wife Between us and wanted to see if this book would lead anywhere more interesting as it unfolded.. But I couldn't care less about any of the characters and didn't see where the story was heading at all! Disappointed.

Highly enjoyable psychological thriller

I enjoyed this book and was gripped from start to finish. It is an unusual story about passion and obsession and the lengths one woman will go to. The characters are well developed and I felt drawn to the main female Jessica and her relationship with Dr Shields. The narration was very good and the voices suited the characters. This is the type of book I struggle to pause and feel befeft when finished.

Loved it!

After enjoying The Wife Between Us so much last year, I had to listen to the newest book by these two authors. I wasn’t expecting it be be as good, but it had me hooked from start to finish. It never got boring, there were twists and turns along the way, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Excellent

Finding a truly spellbinding psychological thriller can be few and far between. This is one of them, I was hooked from start to finish and was very impressed with how the storyline flowed seamlessly through the duration.
I would highly recommend this book.

Gripping book

Enjoyed this book. It took quite a few long chapters to build up at first (hence not a 5) but then about halfway it becomes so gripping and interesting that I couldn't put it down.

Started of slow, but so worth it!

It started very slow and only here by chapter 40 it started getting interesting and exciting, however it needed the first 40 chapters to supply background in order for it to be so hard hitting! I loved how their voices transferred me into the book, their techniques were good for the various voices.

Brilliant!

This authors are getting better and better with their books. This one was intricate crafted and had me sitting on the edge until the very end. Can’t wait for their next book!
