An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen – Book Review



From Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the authors of the top ten bestseller The Wife Between Us, comes An Anonymous Girl – an electrifying novel about doubt, passion and deadly obsession . . .

Seeking women ages 18–32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed. 

When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money and leave.

But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive, and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr Shields may know what she’s thinking . . . and what she’s hiding.

As Jess’s paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what is real in her life, and what is one of Dr Shields’s manipulative experiments.

Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.



Jessica Farris is 28 and a make up artist, she hears a couple of her clients Taylor and Mandy discussing a survey that you can earn $500 to just answer a few questions. So she makes a note of the details and decides to learn more and maybe take part as she could really do with the money.

As a result Jessica then takes part in the Morality & Ethics research project, she is subject 52 and the questions seem harmless, but she is soon telling her secrets….. !

Dr Shields who is running the survey, asks to meet Jessica as she wants to carry on the surgery, with further face to face questions and ‘assignments’ where her life is basically under control of Dr Shields. A story about the trust we place in so called professionals, with some thought provoking questions on morality and what trouble a lie can cause…..some creepy moments too.

I was totally engrossed and while I have read many psychological thrillers this was certainly original and downright unsettling….a definite must read and one of my favourites this year.

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this ebook for free in exchange for a fair and honest review
