Derailed Conscience by Eliza Green
Have you ever felt so overwhelmed by outside influences that you begin to think you’ve entered the Twilight Zone or are in a bad dream you can’t wake up from? Jonathan’s simple business trip to Spelling turned into his own private hell as he is accused of a crime he did not commit. The townspeople are up in arms, tossing accusations at him and he has no idea why. Just as suddenly as the violence begins, it’s over, poof, like it never happened. Is it something in the water in Spelling or is it something more devious and sinister in play? Who better to speak to about this than his boss, a seasoned psychologist how has helped him with other issues. Is she regretting hiring him? Could it cost him his internship? Just when he thinks he is totally losing his mind, a blast from the past, his twin brother, a recently released convict contacts him and Jonathan thinks he has found the problem, a case of mistaken identity. Jonathan is taking the heat for his brother’s crimes. Is that what is happening? Has he been set up as a patsy? If so, by whom? If the answers can be found, will it be in time to save him from insanity or worse?
Have you read anything from Eliza Green? She has an amazing series called The Exilon 5 Trilogy, but Derailed Conscience is a much darker and twisted trip into shaking up the human mind. Talk about a walk on the dark side! Ms. Green has taken psychological drama to the jagged edge of one’s imagination as I felt what Jonathan felt, and could not figure out what was happening and where it was coming from! Edge of your seat, nerve jangling scenes, that all are as if being seen through Jonathan’s troubled eyes, a Twilight Zone experience for sure….the only thing missing was Eliza Green saying she was now returning control of my reality back to me. 4.5 Creepy Stars!
I received an ARC edition from Eliza Green in exchange for my honest review.
