A NYC makeup artist who needs more money signs up for a university study on ethics and morality. Jessica becomes Subject 52 and easily advances to the “next round,” in which she is asked to do more for psychiatrist Dr. Lydia Shields – she’s told what to wear, where to go, and how to act when she gets there. The money is good for Jessica – but at what cost? This psychological thriller had me turning pages and wishing for a movie or Netflix version very soon. A great read.
