Question #1: Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt?
Question #2: Have you ever deeply hurt someone you care about?
Question #3: Should a punishment always fit the crime?
When she comes across an opportunity for a paid study on ethics and morality by the mysterious Dr. Shields, Jessica Farris jumps at the chance. Not only do the questions arouse her curiosity, she knows she could use the extra money. As the questions become intense and personal, however, Jessica asks herself if she ought to continue or just take her pay and never look back.
But Dr. Shields isn’t done with her.
Even though extra pay is offered, Jessica starts to feel there is more to the outside assignments she is given. She was supposed to get paid only for the surveys, after all. So what is the reason for Dr. Shields’s assignments?
As her paranoia grows–especially after revealing her most personal stories–Jessica can no longer trust what’s going on around her, especially Dr. Shields’s obsession and her manipulative experiments.
I finished reading this book yesterday and I think it’s worth the read. In fact, I actually liked it better than the authors’ previous novel. The suspense was great and the supposed flawless Dr. Shields made me want to know more of how it all was going to go down. So, dear readers, what would you do in that situation? For a substantial amount of money, would you be willing to be tested on ethics and morality? Feel free to post your comments. Happy reading!
