Product Description

If you are being terrorised, and have nowhere to go, revenge keeps you going.
When Laura, Natalie, and Jason take part in a medical trial, they're in it for the money.
But they have no idea what they have really signed up for. Out of nowhere, love interests, jealousy, and arguments appear. Emotions are smouldering under the surface, breaking through the cracks, before everything takes a turn for the worse, and the brutality of the trial shows its ugly face. Somewhere along the way, the three seem to lose grip on where reality stops and imagination begins.

This is a full length novel of 270 pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Compulsive Read 25 Sep 2012
By Ann M
Format:Kindle Edition
Three flat mates Natalie, Laura and Jason enter a drugs trial. Although they know exactly how much money they are getting for taking part they seem to have little or no idea of the nature of the trial. As the trial gets underway it is obvious that mind changing drugs are involved and I found it increasingly difficult to tell what was real and what was going on in the minds of the participants. As the level of violence escalated so did my sense of unreality and at the end I was left with some questions unanswered.

A compulsive and exciting if, at times, confusing read. The rather claustrophobic atmosphere of the hospital is well portrayed and the three main characters, though not particularly likeable, are believable. Overall a pacey well written psychological thriller and a promising debut novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trial #1322 24 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When this novel begins Laura, a music journalist, and her flat mate friends Jason and Natalie, enter a hospital for a drug trial. They are not taking part for altruistic reasons, purely for the money paid on completion of the trial. Of course they are not the only people taking part and the small group of seven soon settle into uneasy relationships. Natalie's jealousy threatens to stop the trial, but can it be stopped?

This is a very unusual and interesting novel. From the very beginning, the author makes his three central characters unsympathetic and then begins to change our perceptions of, not only them, but everyone else. Is the nurse Anna just abrupt, or is she something more sinister? Why is the ward on the next floor empty? Should the group be concerned about the locked doors? This is a gripping and thrilling medical thriller, which I was unable to put down. Overall, a really good and exciting read and I look forward to anything else by this author, who shows immense promise with this debut novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good debut from this author 25 Oct 2012
By Trace
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is about 3 people who go onto a medical trial for money. They and a few others are attending this drug trial but they don't really have any idea what it actually entails. Strange things begin to happen during the course of the trial. Is it the effects of the medication they are given or is something more sinister going on?

Ok first off let me state I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. This is not a normal read for me and it took me right out of my comfort zone as I don't really read much of this particular genre. There were times when I couldn't put the book down. I really got into it and at certain times I was reading and thinking is this really happening or is this particular character hallucinating! The book does begin quite slowly but I do urge you to be patient and keep reading as once the action really gets going it is a fast paced book!

The characters were not very likable people but as the book went on you could begin to sympathise with them.

It is quite a violent book and at times, I personally found some of the violence and trauma within the story a bit much but that is probably because I'm not a regular reader of this genre. It was believable, written well and it fitted with the story well too.

I was given the book by the author to review. Would I have picked this up if I'd been browsing in a book store or on amazon? Probably not, however I'm really glad that I gave this book a shot. It was a very good debut from this author and I'm glad I read it. I would definitely buy this authors work again!

By Cheryl M-M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a very good reason never to take part in a medical trial.
Although it starts off fairly slowly the pace picks up towards the second half.
The concept brings to mind how trusting we are that no other person means us harm and what we are willing to go through to make money. Even when our gut instinct is screaming no.
The prequel didn't fit with the concept of this novel at all. I was expecting the author to follow the path of one of the characters revealing himself to be the serial killer from the prequel. Instead I think that idea got lost in the midst, perhaps to be used at a later date and in a different book.
The build up of paranoia between both the patients and the staff was well portrayed. Often the reader is unaware whether the patient is dreaming or experiencing the events.
I felt that the book left some questions unanswered. What was the purpose, who and how did it all come together? In what way was the neighbour involved or wasn't she.
The violence is quite visual at times. In the last few chapters the story went from thriller to violent horror, almost at random without any real linking to the plot. This detracted from the good psychological warfare going on in the first half of the book.
I received a free copy of this book for my review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mind games with menace 5 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good read, with interesting characters and an original premise.

Three friends take part in a drug trial for money. The drugs they are testing are mind-altering and it is not long before rifts appear between not only the three friends, but the other four participants in the trial. After a slowish start, the action really picks up as the characters' perceptions of themselves, and the other people involved, become confused - which is also confusing for the reader as it becomes difficult to differentiate between truth and illusion.

I think this book is well-written, with great characterisation and an eplosive, gripping ending, but an edit to clarify points of view of the main chracters and t eliminate a few typos would lift it to another level.
