Library Journal ReviewMakeup artist Jess Farris needs money to pay for her sister's therapy after a brain injury. When Jess overhears a client cancel her participation in a psychological study conducted by a respected New York City psychiatrist, the prospect of making easy cash is too alluring, so she lies to take the woman's place. For Jess, now known as Subject 52, it seems like a dream come true, until the study moves into real-life vignettes created just for her, and she discovers that Dr. Lydia Shields has a personal agenda. Danger seems to wait for Jess around every corner, and after sharing so many dark secrets with Lydia, it seems leaving the study is almost impossible. Will she find the one thing she can use to stop the doctor's calculated manipulations? VERDICT For those who relished the creepy stalking in Hendricks and Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us, this unnerving tale will have them rethinking what secrets are safe to share and if morals and ethics really matter when protecting the ones you love.
