I had a difficult time getting into this book. There were a lot of characters and story lines and none of them seemed to go together. It was slow going for the first 40 pages or so but once Faye and Alex met I really started to enjoy the book.
There is a lot of action in this book. People are dying, patients are turning up missing from the hospital, and people you trust are turning out to be at the center of the mysterious trial. Alex and Faye have stumbled onto a medical trial that is causing patients to have seizures. Pair that with the fact that Faye’s missing father may have been taken into the trials against his will and the couple are racing against time to save him and the other patients that are part of the trial.
We learn about the pawns in the medical trial scheme and slowly unravel a story that goes back decades, all the way to the 1940’s. I had no idea who was at the center of the trials and when I found out I was very surprised! It definitely kept me reading to the end to find out what was going to happen next.
I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. a Rafflecopter giveaway
