Adverse Effects (The Memory Thieves series, Book 1) (Memory Thieves Series, 1)

We rated this book:


Cristina Silva is a psychiatrist who specializes in helping amnesiac patients recover their memories. Her patients are achieving memory recovery at an incredible rate after she prescribes an experimental drug called Recognate, which is in early trials. Because of these results, Cristina decides to take the drug herself, as she lost her memory two years earlier in a car crash. One of her patients on this drug kills himself and another kills someone else before being killed by the police. A man contacts Cristina and tells her she isn’t whom she thinks she is and that the memories she does have are not her own. He tells her that the drug actually gives people new memories of someone else’s life. Cristina needs to figure out what’s going on before the Adverse Effects cause her to lose her mind and hurt someone or before those in control of the drug hurt her to keep their secret.

Although this is labeled a medical thriller, I would like to point out that there is a lot of espionage as well in case that helps you make your decision to pick it up or not. The premise is interesting and it is very action-packed. I’m not quite sure how it will be a series, as the author wrapped things up nicely at the end. However, I look forward to hearing more about Cristina and Wilson.
