Book Description

Oct 2003

Dr. Holland Banks is head of the Century Psychiatric Hospital and president of the Schizophrenia Research Foundation...but is she going insane? The rest of the world seems to be. There's a sniper on the loose, she's being stalked, her father is conducting deadly experiments, and she's begun to hear voices: other people's thoughts. But a man was just admitted to her hospital—one who searched her out, whose touch can make her voices subside. Is he crazy, too, or a solution to her fears? A labyrinth of conspiracy is rising around her, and Holland's life is about to change forever. Very soon there will be...No More Lies.

Product Description

About the Author

Susan Squires earned a Masters degree in English literature from UCLA and, as a by-product, learned how much fun research of other times and places can be. Several trips to Suffolk and Norfolk in the east of Britain created a life-long love of that area and its history. Danish on one side, and married to a very Saxon husband, she became fascinated with that time in East Anglian Britain when two cultures married and created a new language and a new land. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars dark, edgy...brilliant 1 Oct 2003
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Holland Banks is head of the Century Psychiatric Hospital and president of the Schizophrenia Research Foundation and the phrase "Physician Heal Thyself" is foremost at the front of her brain. It's just not Holly's week. She is suffering from terrible nightmares from which she awakens thinking her hand is an evil being. At first, she chalks this up to her inner feelings of being inadequate. The daughter of a high-powered research scientist, she has never measures up to the mad-scientist daddy dearest's hopes for her. She feels she has to continually push be perfect, in her work, in her appearance, and the only place Holly lets down her hair is her home. She could chalk up the odd dreams to the pressure of younger
doctors wanting her position, and that she always fears someone is going to find out she is not as good as she thinks she should be. Except for one thing: someone is stalking her.
She first sees him outside her exercise club, then later as she is coming out of a restaurant from a meeting with her father. The man is handsome in a rugged way, and dressed in a plaid shirt - always a plaid shirt. Her sense of losing her sanity increased as she begins to hear his thoughts. Someone took a shot at her ...she thought it was the stalker, but the police point out she was watching his hands at the time and he was not holding a gun. Was someone else shooting at her? Where they shooting at him?
The riddle of the stalker's identity comes to light at a press conference where her father is announcing his breakthrough in genes altering. Holly fears her father is pushing into areas that are not only outside of what is legal, but way beyond what is ethical, and has warned him not to announce she has anything to do with his work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complex - manic scientist on loose! 5 Sep 2006
By LEP VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I actually didn't like this book all that much. Genius, egotistical, scientist discovers how to insert one individual's spare or 'junk' DNA into someone else. However, he has no idea as to what the use of this might be, just that it can be done and he wants to beat a scientist competitor by being first with a new discovery in genetic science. He also has no idea of the effect that this 'junk' DNA will have on the new recipient until the 'mutant' volunteers start going mad/commiting suicide. He needs more volunteers to find out why the new DNA is causing psychological problems.

Dr Bank's daughter, Holland, just happens to be a psychiatrist and the head of the Schizophrenia Research Foundation. She and her father have major issues with each other. Bank's senior intends to announce his find to the media without disclosing the results and tries to pull Holland into the event with him. She finds it all very unethical and at first refuses. She is also having problems of her own.

Holland has suddenly started to suffer from what the doctor diagnoses as severe tinitus. However, the symptoms are like hundreds of voices in her head, giving her pain and making her fear that she is going mad. She also has weird dreams that she is possessed by evil, which is in her hand. Then she thinks that she is being stalked. However, she can actually hear the stalker's words/voice in her head.

Her egotistical, psychotic father has dreams of being the father of a new race of humans. He has discovered a virus which will carry the mutant DNA and released it into the population, even though he knows that it has severe psychological effects. The DNA virus only affects people between 25 - 45. Guess who has been affected!

The riddle of the stalker's identity comes to light at a press conference where her father is announcing his breakthrough in genes altering. Holly fears her father is pushing into areas that are not only outside of what is legal, but way beyond what is ethical, and has warned him not to announce she has anything to do with his work. Despite two warnings, Leyland Banks does just this because he needs Holly's reputation ...and more. When the stalker breaks into the conferences and attacks Leyland, Holly's grip on reality slips even further, for she hears what the stalker is thinking.
The man is admitted to her hospital as a patient, and Holly is strangely drawn to the reporter who seems to have gone mad. She is rattled by his blethering about people who thought they were aliens...very similar to Holly's own dream. As she begins to work with the reporter, she starts to fear something dark and sinister is spreading it tentacles throughout the city. There are strange deaths, people disappearing, and a sniper on the loose racking up nearly two dozen kills ...and at the bottom it Holly's fears her father's work is the cause of it all.
Squires continually pushes the edge in her writing. Keeping the reading off balance and pulling them along on the dark ride. It's a first class nail bitter that you won't be able to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars This author is awesome and so is the story... 30 Sep 2003
By Huntress Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Holland Banks, (Holly), has made a sucessful career for herself as a pschiatrist, despite the fact that she often feels like she is going insane herself. Voices clammer in her head, giving her little peace. It is not until she meets another person with a problem much like her own that she has hope of finding peace.
Jeff McQueen first encounters Holly when he attacks her and her father. Later, when he becomes her patient, Holly finds herself attracted to this strange man who is able to bring silence to her voices. When they touch, Holly and Jeff are able to find peace. They also find that they can hear each other's every thought. They are not the only ones though. Hundreds of people in the world have this blessed curse. Those people are the voices in their head. What is more alarming is that Holland's father is working with a corrupt senator to use as many of these people as possible in genetic manipulations and political schemes that could lead to a world wide nightmare.
Imagine, a world where no one could lie, not even the white, polite lies that are termed diplomacy. In a world built upon lies, the truth is the one thing that could destroy reality. Holland and Jeff must stop the senator from his scheme to control the world. The two lovers set off on a journey across the country, barely a step ahead of an enemy who can invade their very thoughts.
***** One of the best things about Susan Squires is that she always creates a new way to tell stories. Her plot is exciting and thought provoking, and her characters realistic. From politics to religion, she covers all bases. There may be many books about psychics, but there is not one that is like NO MORE LIES. *****
2.0 out of 5 stars not my cup of tea 6 April 2014
By GioGio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Let me preface this by saying that Susan Squires has written some books that I've enjoyed - this just isn't one of them. I have no problem with 'shadowy conspiracy' stories, but I think they're difficult to execute well. For me, this one fell short, and it's hard to explain precisely why without including spoilers. I can say that I found the purported motives of some of the bad guys, and especially one person who shouldn't have been a bad guy, unpersuasive. Also, I found the supposedly positive outcome of the perilous situation the H/h had been in to be horrific in its implications. In addition, I found the pacing of the book to be uneven, and therefore my investment in the lead characters was sporadic too. In short, there are better Squires books in which to invest your time and money.
5.0 out of 5 stars Susan Squires does it again! 23 April 2012

Susan Squires is without a doubt one of the top romance writers out there. Her novels never fail to grip the reader and keep their attention from cover to cover. They are extremely well-researched, well-developed and imaginative with full-bodied characters and plot twists that continue to surprise.

4.0 out of 5 stars strong thriller 1 Oct 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Holland "Holly" Banks has a successful psychiatric practice as the chief of Century Psychiatric Hospital and the President of the Schizophrenia Research Foundation. However, as the world seems to be falling apart, her own environs appears in worse shape as she hears voices in her head that drives her crazy because she is either losing her mind or is possessed.
Jeff McQueen seeks Holly help because he hears voices inside his head and worries that he is losing his mind. He becomes her patient and shockingly they give each other relief from the voices as together they somehow can silence the noise especially when they touch. Almost as surprising the duo also can hear each other's every thought.
Holly soon learns that she shares this gift with hundreds of people who are the voices in her head. However, Holly is unaware that her father is working with a senator to genetically manipulate this group to insure a future world of no lies controlled by this Congressman and his associates. As they fall in love and find comfort in each other's arms, Holland and Jeff try to stop the senator from destroying the world, as they know it.
Though psychic control seems old with collectives like the Borg and the Damned and Corn children, Susan Squires provides a powerful refreshing tale. The lead couple is a delight, as few protagonists need each as much as this duo does. The metamorphosis from enemies to co-dependents to love is beautifully told. Though the senator seems too weak as a villain to pull off his dastardly plot, fans will believe Ms. Squires pulled off her clever plot.
