Dr. Maria Martinez is being accused of murdering a priest, and is awaiting trial in prison while the details get figured out. Sadly, she has no recollection of the event. She also has Asperger’s and is incredibly intelligent. While in prison, she meets with a few therapists and others who try to help her determine what really happened the night the priest was murdered. Could she really have killed him and then forgotten about it? Did she commit the murder, or is she being set up? And if so, by whom? Who is Subject 375?
This story moves around quite a bit, as it jumps from present to Maria’s early childhood and back again. And sometimes it seems as if her “memories” may have been fabricated. She questions everything and everyone so often, you wonder midway through the book if she has a type of paranoia or some other type of mental illness. The characters she encounters are well-defined. Some relationships seem strained, but the reasons for people distancing themselves from Maria is explained later in the book. I enjoyed the suspense and recommend it for anyone else who does, especially when it’s a trilogy, with two more books to come. Can’t wait to see how this unfolds!
