Review: Anonymous by Christine Benedict

You can't go wrong with a good thriller - especially a psychological one.
   Anonymous by Christine Benedict is a good psychological thriller if you are looking for one. It has tones of The Shining by Stephen King - isolation, paranoia and psychosis. I was half expecting Jack Nicholson to show up in the book and declare he was home.
   But, Benedict is in no need of King to show her how to maneuver around a psychological thriller. She does it just fine. While some of the writing itself can get dull, Benedict manages to keep the story going. And when it comes to these types of books, you cannot let stagnation set in.
   So, a synopsis - Debra Hamilton lives in fear of inheriting the mental illness that is present in her family. When her husband moves her to an old farmhouse on 53 acres of land - a place her new neighbors claim is haunted - she begins to see and experience things. Is it really haunted? Is Debra finally going insane? Or is there a stalker involved?
   Read the book to find out.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge, and received compensation, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
