How well can we trust ourselves when our everyday life is interrupted by bizarre incidents which seem to threaten our very hold onto reality? How can we determine our own sanity? Jonathan is living a humdrum life as the assistant to a London based psychologist but is disconcerted by an accusation of murder when visiting Spelling, a small town in Hampshire. As more strange events occur, he spirals into paranoia - is he going crazy or is someone, somehow, out to get him? And why?
Set in a slightly futuristic but familiar world, Ms.Green's short novella, told from the protagonist's viewpoint, is atmospheric and (mostly) well written. It also raises interesting questions on, amongst others, the nature of self. Recommended.

Eliza Green is back. After finishing her well-made dystopian trilogy 'Exilon 5’ Green started working on something completely different – ‘Derailed Conscience’ is her journey to the world of psychology and thriller, and though not thick in scope, she again manages to keep reader’s attention to the very end.

While on a business trip to Spelling in North Hampshire, the main character of her book, a psychologist’s assistant named Jonathan Farrell, is going to be accused of murder by complete stranger. And though Jonathan tries to deny what he is accused for, the things that will start happening around that will make him wonder what is really going on.

And given how twisted and bizarre the incidents will become, even the psychologist Jonathan works for, will start questioning if they really happened or someone lost his mind…

Eliza Green was one of the first authors that contacted me, almost 2 years ago, sending me her first novel in 'Exilon 5’ series. And although I gave her 4 stars, I remember thinking for a long time did I do wrong to her.

So this time I will not make the same mistake - although with mixed emotions between the very good and the highest rating, the author certainly has managed to accommodate into 90 pages a very interesting story that will have a big appeal to fans of ‘Twilight Zone’. Thus she announced that as successfully as she dealt with the world of dystopia, it can be expected she will be equally good with thrillers.

Therefore, looking forward to her first "serious" (in terms of scope) thriller, and meantime I recommend reading this great story.

I was given a copy of this novel by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Understanding of the brain by the brain is a tough job, even for psychologists. Jonathan Farrell's work as a psychologist's assistant leads him to a small town where a harmless visit to a tea-shop (we're in England after all) leads to a disturbing incident. Back in London, strange events accumulate and Farrell eventually doubts his own sanity.
Through the eyes of the protagonist in this suspenseful and riveting story we witness his gradual mental decline. But being paranoid doesn't mean no one is stalking you! I think I don't give away too much when I tell you that what's obvious isn't always what's true. The story takes an unexpected turn, and then another, and then one more. Or maybe not? But who can you trust? Farrell? The author? This reviewer?
This is a novella of high quality, which clearly belongs to the psych-thriller genre. But you also find – and this is the only small caveat to me – some elements of Sci-Fi. Those elements seem a little factitious. For the most part they are not essential to the story, and could have been left out, without loosing too much.
A recommended read that shows once again: Indie Authors are able to cut it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I thought the entire book was the introduction, then it ended 19 May 2015
By Cassia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book ended too abruptly. I did not know it was so short because I bought it on Kindle. When it was over I thought something was wrong because so much was missing. Then I realized that the book had actually ended. It started off interesting and it keeps getting more and more interesting like a good story is about to evolve and then it ends. I also made a bit of an observation, this author really likes blonde hair, her characters are always blonde, just a little annoying because I noticed it in her last book and now I noticed it again in this book, not a big deal just something I noticed too much of. Overall it was okay but a the writing style is a bit juvenile and the characters are described too quickly and they're good looking (like a teen vampire story or something, hard to explain). It is also kind of predictable, it has a few twists as you expect it would. I think Eliza Green has great ideas and interesting stories but should work on her literary and descriptive skills.
4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive step away from Eliza Green's Exilon 5 series. 26 May 2015
By Cheri174evr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Eliza Green's foray into the psychological thriller genre is impressive, especially with the added touch of scifi. I really had no idea how she was going to explain what was going on with the main character. But the twist revealed in the last couple of pages brought me to the "ah ha!" place.

The story engaged me very quickly. It would be interesting to see if Ms. Green has another installment to come (of this story). If so, it could be titled, "Simon says".

You'll have to read Derailed Conscience to understand that!
5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun, great suspense and an all around good read. 14 May 2015

Most enjoyable. Eliza has a way of capturing your attention and making you look forward to the next page. I enjoy all of her novels and this novella does not disappoint. I look forward to the second part of this story......and knowing our author, she will have a great twist somewhere in the body of that story too!!! Thanks for a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Premise that Should Make You Race to the End 24 May 2015
By Liquid Frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this short - it is in the same vein as The Twilight Zone. I wasn't sure where it was headed and I enjoyed the journey. It has a small cast, and with the action and events unfolding, I plowed through the book quickly.

Jonathan (NOT Jon) the protagonist is a psychologist assistant to Dr. Blake. He has a twin brother that dabbles in drugs and crime (and jail), an over-bearing mother and a smoking-hot girlfriend. He appears to be a rather normal young professional starting his career. That is, until unexplained outbursts from strangers and a unique mirror that shows him something he can't understand starts to fray his nerves.

The tale takes you on a path of discovery - What is going on? Is Jonathan going mad? Who is following him? Perhaps a tale of mistaken identity? You really won't know until you finish the book and I won't give anything away in this short review.

I have read one of Green's earlier works and found it entertaining and rated it three or four stars. This book was much more entertaining and interesting. No, I really enjoyed it. The only reason why I'm knocking a star off - the ending was way too abrupt and a cliff-hanger. Perhaps if things didn't' wrap up so quickly, the cliff-hanger part wouldn't bother me so much. I was provided an advance review copy
