“I agree with Aaron Jones' quote on [Altered State]: ‘Inescapably compelling, medically accurate and disturbingly plausible.’ I had a hard time putting this book down. The story flies, and the characters interact well with each other and bring greater depth to the story.&rduqo; — By Karen Hamilton, Association for Mormon Letters
Homer and Morgan Winegar believe they may have finally found happiness in the quiet college town in which they have settled. Perhaps now in their new life together with Morgan’s nine-year-old son, they can each leave a troubled past behind.
But when Morgan’s psychology students begin exhibiting bizarre behavior, the couple quickly becomes entangled in an experiment headed for catastrophe. Someone is illegally administering a mind-altering drug to unwitting students. With the potential for millions of dollars in profits on the line, the pharmaceutical designers are more than willing to set aside morals to test the limits of the subconscious and mind control.
As the growing ranks of test subjects fulfill increasingly disturbing commands, Homer and Morgan race to discover who’s pulling the strings — and how they are doing it. But as the final stages of research point to a deadly calamity, events from the past threaten to shatter the couple’s fragile trust — just as they need it most. Will they be able to overcome the forces that threaten to pull them apart and find a way to stop the impending tragedy?
One of the best books I've read. Intense! I read this book in about a week and a half which is fast for me. I didn't want to put it down.
