A bold and innovative main character By Cheryl M-M I thought this book was a breath of fresh air with an innovative premise. It highlights an important issue in our society, how our misconceptions about autism and other syndromes on the spectrum still define the way we treat people who fall into those categories.It was a bold move on Owen's part, to create a character with Asperger's, and weave this quite complex and fast paced psychological thriller around it. I enjoyed and was intrigued by the choice. Authors tend to stay away from awkward or characters 'deemed' different by society.It not only gives an insight into the mind of a person with Asperger's and in doing so may help others understand the difficulties they deal with on a daily basis. In this case the prison setting exacerbates the Asperger's, which in itself is quite an interesting read.I think the most fascinating parts of the story are the ones dealing with both the limitations and advantages of Maria's Asperger's. The moments when the reader gets a really vivid insight into the mindset, the decision process, the fears and the very distinct processes she applies to her surroundings and people.Maria finds herself accused, convicted of and imprisoned for murder. She is convinced of her innocence and confused by all the events that have brought her to this point. Initially she is confined to solitary, a grave mistake on their part, especially in combination with her syndrome.A cat and mouse game ensues between Maria, her mind and whoever is sitting in the interview/therapy room with her. Suddenly everyone is part of her 'imagined' conspiracy theories. She starts to doubt her innocence, perhaps she really is a brutal killer. Maybe everyone is right and she is losing touch with reality. Or are her theories not just figments of her imagination.An unusual friendship blossoms between Maria and an inmate. Unusual because her social filters and skills usually make such a connection difficult.Maria's biggest battle is with herself, there is no doubt about that. She can't trust her instincts, her perceptions or any interactions she has with any person. Any one else would probably go completely insane, so I guess there must be something really special about Maria, right? I'll leave you to find that out for yourself.I received a copy of this book, courtesy of Harlequin Mira, for purposes of review. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Fantastic! By Claire Hill I received a 5 chapter sample of this book via Netgalley and became utterly engrossed in the story. I decided to buy the book so I could get to know Maria better.I flew through the rest of the book and read it in less than 24 hours. It's a fast paced thriller with an exciting yet touching story. You cannot fail to be moved by Maria's vulnerability - she doesn't know whether she is guilty of the crime she has been incarcerated for and is convinced that everyone is conspiring against her. As the book progressed, I began to think that maybe Maria was right!Nikki Owen's writing is so brilliantly descriptive that I got completely caught up with all the emotions. The imagery is so vivid, you can almost see, hear and smell what is happening. I'm already looking forward to her next book. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Subject 375 By Ashrae You really want to go into this book with a clear(ish) head as it does tend to jump about a lot in time. I took me a while to get used to this time hopping but it wasn't too long and once I did "get it", I simply whizzed through the rest of the book. Be warned though, although there is a conclusion of sorts at the end of this book, it is part of a trilogy so don't expect it all to tie up in the end and be prepared to invest in the next book which luckily is out next month.So, eminent plastic surgeon Dr Maria Martinez is in prison for the murder of a priest. She has no recollection of the incident. She also has Aspergers and this really doesn't help with her situation in prison so she is seeing a therapist there. We then follow Maria through her time in jail. Meanwhile, we also follow Maria at another time where she is seeing a another therapist and it is through these therapy sessions that we learn more about Maria's past and how she got to where she is today. I know this sounds very convoluted but it is easier to follow in the book, I just don't want to write spoilers here and am being deliberately vague so I don't.Having the plot timelines a bit all over the place coupled with somewhat of an unreliable narrator made me as a reader completely confused for the majority of the book. Who to trust, what is fact, what is fiction? I am well versed in "making up the past" as apparently I have many quite clear childhood memories that simply didn't happen. But how much of Maria's behaviour can be written against her Aspergers, or is there something much darker going on? Either way, I think that the way this book is written insofar as leaving the reader as confused as Maria for the majority in my opinion made for a better connection between myself as a reader and Maria as a character and, as anyone who knows me will agree, I do need to connect with characters I am reading about.The plot, as already mentioned, is convoluted and, at times, inconclusive. There were times where I thought we were going a bit over the top in the realms of credibility but then I thought about it and figured, why not? It also flowed well (within the time hopping nature obviously) and eventually made sense! Pacing was good. There were a lot of short bursts of intense action interspersed throughout a general increase of overall action level until we get to the end of the book. Obviously this isn't the end of the story but it's a good place to stop. Enough has been kind resolved but obviously there is more, much much more to be known.Characters were interesting. I have already said that I connected well with Maria but the rest of the characters were just as well described. Hard to do really as there were a fair few that were shall we say, maybe not as they should be. But again, at the end of the day, this worked well too.All in all a great start to the trilogy. I have a copy of book two all ready to go but wanted to review this one first as I didn't want the two to merge.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
