Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “An Anonymous Girl” by Greek Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen St. Martin’s Press, January 8, 2019
Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, Authors of “An Anonymous Girl” have written a unique, intense, intriguing, page turning, captivating, riveting and enthralling novel. The Genres for this Novel are Thriller, Fiction, Mystery and Suspense. The authors describe the dysfunctional characters as complex and complicated. The time-line for the story is in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events in the story. Kudos to St.Martin’s Press for their outstanding and motivational marketing strategies.
Jessie Farris is working as a Beauty Consultant for Beauty Buzz to make ends meet and help her parents and handicapped sister. While doing the make-up for two college girls, she notices a text message on one of their phones that there is an opportunity to make money by answering a psychological questionnaire. Jessie takes the information down, when her client steps out of the room, and takes a chance and shows up to answer the questions and get the money. This is a Psychological Profile that deals with issues of morality. The Psychiatrist in charge is Dr. Shields.
Jessie is called back to answer more intense questions. Dr. Shields wants to meet Jessie in person and Jessie finds herself doing things that don’t make her comfortable and could be dangerous. The more that Jessie interacts with Dr. Shield, she finds very strange and questionable disturbances. This gets to be very intense and I found myself getting extremely anxious. It is like a game of chess, or a game of cat and mouse, and someone has to be one step ahead of the other. There are twists and turns, and highs and lows. What price is to be paid for playing the game? Is the money worth the danger? I highly recommend this emotional and fierce novel for readers who enjoy thrillers. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
