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.
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.

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!
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
