Whoa! That's exactly what I thought when I finished Schizo: Hidden in Plain Sight by debut author Ilene B. Benator, which is book one in the Schizo Series. Follow the story of Dan Greenberg, a medical student who appeared to have a promising career in front of him until he crossed paths with Catherine, a schizophrenic patient obsessed with stories about patients in Chicago hospitals who are in danger. At first, these stories appear to be the paranoid ramblings often heard from those suffering from schizophrenia, but then Dan realizes that the stories Catherine is telling contain details that are way too detailed to be fabricated. When he investigates and finds the very people Catherine reported, and the possibility of the plot that she outlined regarding population control could be true, he ends up locked in the same psychiatric facility where he had previously worked. Is Dan doomed to the same fate as Catherine, or will he be able to uncover those controlling this sinister plot? You'll need to read the book to find out.
I loved Schizo: Hidden in Plain Sight. Loved. It. How's that for a review? Author Ilene B. Benator has done a fantastic job in creating a suspenseful and thrilling story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats from the beginning to the end. Her background as a physician truly shines through in the more medical and technical aspects of the story, but her abilities as a story teller are the biggest star in this book. Any reader who likes thrillers, mysteries or action novels with a medical backstory will love this book, but any reader just looking for a great new book should definitely give this one a chance. I highly recommend Schizo: Hidden in Plain Sight, and am very much looking forward to reading more from the talented new author, Ilene B. Benator, as soon as I possibly can!
