Publisher's Summary

From Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the authors of the top 10 best seller 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’ paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what is real in her life and what is one of Dr Shields’ manipulative experiments. Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.

Creepy and keeps you guessing.

The narrators created a story that chilled to the bone. I didn't know what was going to happen next!

Original story line

An intriguing read with psychological challenges at every turn. Fast paced and cleverly executed. The duality of the story's structure allows the reader insight into both of the main characters personalities & motivations. A good read.

Not as good as their first book

I had high expectations for this as I loved the authors’ first book “The Wife Between Us”. I was left feeling ambivalent about this second offering. I didn’t love it and I didn’t quite hate it. The story is ridiculous- I can’t imagine the scenario occurring in the first place. Even after putting that aside one of the main characters speaks in a strange monotonous voice and constantly describes events in the third person - for example she will say “A pen is picked up from the desk” rather than “I picked a pen up from the desk” I found this extremely irritating as it is so contrived and unnatural. Ultimately disappointing.

Exhausting psychological drama

Well written relentless style that didn't lose a beat. Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen did a splendid job here putting together a psychological thriller of the 1st order, brilliantly narrated by Julia Whelan. Highly recommended.

Gripping, creepy and unexpected.

There is something about Dr Shield's voice that makes you feel like she is a professional. But there's more to the story. The characters are complex, each with their own moral compass. I was on the edge of my seat, from start to finish.

Started of slow, but so worth it!

It started very slow and only here by chapter 40 it started getting interesting and exciting, however it needed the first 40 chapters to supply background in order for it to be so hard hitting! I loved how their voices transferred me into the book, their techniques were good for the various voices.

This authors are getting better and better with their books. This one was intricate crafted and had me sitting on the edge until the very end. Can’t wait for their next book!

I wanted to like it!

Started off great but I lost interest because it was too hard to believe, I think the circumstances just got silly (just in my opinion). The narrator was great until she was reading in the male voices, and Dr Shields voice is irritating - I couldnt finish the book, I usually like these kinds of books but maybe it just wasn't to my taste, so it's best to decide for yourself. I am a fan of both authors and hope I enjoy the next one a little more!

So overrated

I do not see the hype with this book. It was just ok! In fact, barely ok! It started off so slow; at one point I considered exchanging my credit. Then it peaked in the middle. The ending was dire and I could not wait for it to end. So underwhelming, trivial and (dare I say it!) long!

Would not recommend it for those that like to be kept on their toes whilst listening to a thrilling psychological thriller!

Loved it!

After enjoying The Wife Between Us so much last year, I had to listen to the newest book by these two authors. I wasn’t expecting it be be as good, but it had me hooked from start to finish. It never got boring, there were twists and turns along the way, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Totally implausible but great fun

A rollicking good story about a young woman who gets sucked into a manipulative psychiatrist’s web of mind games. It’s chock full of hyperbole (endless cliffhangers, twists and situations causing adrenal gland overdrive) but no less entertaining for it. Recommended.

Utterly pointless

The whole story seems utterly pointless... I gave up after 5.5 hours. I loved The Wife Between us and wanted to see if this book would lead anywhere more interesting as it unfolded.. But I couldn't care less about any of the characters and didn't see where the story was heading at all! Disappointed.

Highly enjoyable psychological thriller

I enjoyed this book and was gripped from start to finish. It is an unusual story about passion and obsession and the lengths one woman will go to. The characters are well developed and I felt drawn to the main female Jessica and her relationship with Dr Shields. The narration was very good and the voices suited the characters. This is the type of book I struggle to pause and feel befeft when finished.
