This is a story about a highly inteligent female doctor called Maria Martinez who is charged with the murder of a priest . Maria has no memory of this event but she has severe doubts about how credible her own memory is as she has lost chunks of time in her memory and has hazy memories of other events that she knows nothing about. In prison now , her Asperger's symtoms are heightened making her imprisionment and awareness of what's going on even worse. It's difficult to know who to trust when you have no idea what is real and who is telling you the truth . If you love conspiracy theories then you will really enjoy this first book in this trilogy.
I received my copy of the book from Lovereading.co.uk
I knew nothing about Asperger's before I read the book but I found it a fascinating way to show how someone who suffers from this illness copes with extreme pressure under highly unusual circumstances. This is the first book in a trilogy and I think it really sets us up for an awesome journey with this main character Maria. I loved how the pace stayed steady throughout the book and my interest in the characters kept growing which is always a good sign , I need to feel something for a character and I did with Maria . We are never certain throughout the story if she did what she was accused of , this makes it even more readable as you want to find out what really happened. I truly cannot wait to read book 2 in the trilogy!
Well done Nikki on writing this awesome book with such an intriguing in character , you know how to keep this girl guessing to the end!
