Marty's mind is messed up - and yours will be too while you are reading this thriller. Marty's brain has been manipulated and some of what he sees and experiences is not real. But, some of it is. It's hard to discern which is reality and which isn't. But that's what makes this book interesting. Because you have an unreliable perspective from Marty, this book will keep you guessing until the end.
Author Dave Becker does a great job of switching back and forth between Marty's messed-up brain and scenes of Marty's professor friend, Ben, as well as FBI agents Alan and his partner, Karen, to add to the mystery. Just how much of the story takes place inside Marty's mind?
This is my second review of Dave Becker's work. The Faustian Host, a YA novel, was his first. This is definitely more for adults, as it is quite violent. But it's an excellent read for those who enjoy psychological thrillers. Good stuff from Mr. Becker. I hope he keeps it coming.
