Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite

Her Way Out by Nancy O'Neill is a suspense novella about a young woman trapped in a marriage with a controlling man. Beth has a successful career and she has finally met the man of her dreams. Jackson is the perfect man, and Beth is so in love with him. After being together a couple of years, they finally get married. Things have been odd for a while; periodically Jackson will become controlling and act jealous. Five years into their marriage, he has to know where she is at all times. Jackson introduces computer chips to Beth's company as a means to track and document the employees. He sells the idea that it will improve security and be time-saving for clocking in and out. Jackson insists that she be one of the first to get a computer chip placed underneath the skin in her wrist, to help promote his business. Soon after, a friend in security approaches Beth and informs her that Jackson has asked him to turn on the GPS to her chip so that he can track her when he leaves the country. Beth is fed up with his attempts to control her and looks for ways to escape him. What are her chances to get away from him, now that she can be tracked anywhere on the globe? Will she succeed?

Her Way Out by Nancy O'Neill is a suspense novella with a frightening theme. Being tracked by computer chips being placed under the skin is very scary. It really makes a person stop and think. It contains several messages to the reader. Number one, never marry someone who won't even let you have a part in the wedding plans. Number two, communicate! If there had been communication, neither number one nor number three would have been deemed necessary. Number three, don't put foreign objects under your skin, especially if they can't be removed. Once upon a time this would have been considered a futuristic science-fiction story, but not anymore. I recommend this amazing novella to those who are fans of suspense tales with a scientific twist.
