A powerful, penetrating and intensely different read that seizes your attention from the very first page. Nikki Owen cleverly writes in the first person narrative in two different time frames, Maria has Asperger syndrome and we are held on the edge of a connection and understanding, yet allowed intimate access to her anxiety, fear and torment. As Maria questions her memory, her thoughts, her grasp on the present and past, a creeping sense of foreboding and fear settles across the pages. For much of the novel you are kept in the dark alongside Maria, which provokes and agitates your interest, suggestions are made then ripped away, suspicions are roused and then extinguished. This fascinating premise works, it leaves you wanting more; just who can be trusted and what is the truth? 'Subject 375' was previously titled 'The Spider in the Corner of the Room' and is the first in the 'The Project Trilogy', the new cover is captivating and perfectly announces this original thriller. ~
