Marla Anderson drops us into a realistic and tense psychological thriller in Unethical! Josephine enrolls her father in Dr. Kessler’s care program after he develops Alzheimer’s. But when she begins to suspect that not everything about Kessler is on the level, she hires a private investigator only to find that more than one person is keeping secrets, and her father isn’t the only one in danger. I love the way Anderson sets up a very realistic situation filled with multidimensional and believable characters! It really drew me in the way there was nothing outlandish here, that the fact this could really happen was scarier than any horror movie monster. Anderson’s expert writing constantly ratchets up the tension to a satisfying ending! If you love realistic suspense sort of in the same vein as The Firm, definitely come enroll as a patient in Unethical!

There are a lot of moving parts here, but they all build to a very satisfying end. If you love some of the sci fi classics (I Robot, Dune) mixed with the dramatic and deep feel of modern sci fi operas (The Expanse, The Giver), then come transfer yourself into the world of Akropolis Omnibus!
