Double Blind

Double Blind
Brandilyn Collins
(B&H Publishing)
ISBN: 978-1433671647
October 2012/352 pages/$14.99

Twenty-nine-year-old Lisa Newberry can barely make it through the day. Suddenly widowed and a survivor of a near-fatal attack, she is wracked with grief and despair. Then she hears of a medical trial for a tiny brain chip that emits electrical pulses to heal severe depression. At rope’s end, Lisa offers herself as a candidate.

When she receives her letter of acceptance for the trial, Lisa is at first hopeful. But—brain surgery. Can she really go through with that? What if she receives only the placebo?

What if something far worse goes wrong?

Written in the relentless style for which Brandilyn Collins is known, Double Blind is a psychological thriller with mind-bending twists. Lisa faces choices that drive her to the brink, and one wrong move could cost the lives of many.


Brandilyn Collins is a best-selling novelist known for her trademark Seatbelt Suspense®. She is a three-time American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Award winner and has also won the Inspirational Readers’ Choice and Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice awards. Brandilyn and her family live in Idaho.


Brandilyn Collins once again has written a book that kept me absolutely glued to the page. In fact, I read it in one evening, staying up way too late until I finished it because I just couldn't put it down. As she typically does in her novels, Collins masterfully spins a plot with numerous twists and turns, making it impossible to figure out the resolution. Secondary storylines of relational dynamics, such as those between Lisa and her mother, are equally compelling. While I normally wouldn't be drawn to a book tagged as a "psychological thriller," the events portrayed are not beyond belief in today's rapidly advancing medical technology. I definitely recommend this one!

I purchased this book for my reading pleasure. I was not asked to write a review.
