People are motivated to break their moral compasses for a variety of primal reasons: survival, hate, love, envy, passion. And money.
An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen is an adult thriller revolving around a study about ethics that then proceeds to change the life of one subject in particular forever. Not everything is as it seems, and the story truly starts to fuck with your head as it continues to unfold.
One perspective is Jess, a poor makeup artist that wants to help her family. The other perspective is Dr. Shields, the mysterious psychologist providing the study that Jess signs up for. Both are interesting, complex characters that I always wondered what their next move would be.
Trigger Warnings: Sexual Assault, Suicide
I loved how unsettling this was. It kept me up late in the night guessing about what would happen next. Some of the twists were unexpected, and I love how everything was wrapped up.
This is apparently this duos second thriller, and I know I must get my hands on the first, The Wife Between Us, as soon as possible.
