Months after his mysterious disappearance from a routine fishing trip, no one really expects over-the-hill Texas housewife Lory Latchley to find her missing husband—especially her husband. The Manufactured Identity is clinical psychologist Heath Sommer's ever-escalating immersion into the world of unlikely friends who each awaken to find their faithful companions missing without warning or reason. Desperate to find meaning in their pain, they are thrust by the auspices of fate into a common thread of mystery and human frailty. In the end, the fate of all may reside in the unstable hands of rookie pastor John Joe, but ultimately Lory and her newfound partners will uncover a truth so unnerving it makes even infidelity look palatable.
Brilliant, oh my, if you enjoy psychological thrillers this is a must read. This book will mess with your head. If you love a good debate especially about marriage or how the mind works, you have to get this. This is a MUST. I loved it and I will definitely read again just to be able to know the ending and have that in my mind for the ride. You know the feeling of going on roller coaster ride for the first time then doing it again, that is the excited feeling I have now.
This is a book so hard to review because the story is complex and I don't want to spoil it.
I am an Employee Relations Manager and love the idea of counseling but am not a 'qualified counselor' so for me I enjoyed being in the mind of the counselor and also the clients.
The flow of the chapters were great also, I enjoyed the style, here are the headings for the parts of the book.....
Part 1 The First Awakenings
Part 2 The Second Awakenings
Part 3 The Dawn of Understanding
Part 4 The Manufactured IdentitiesThis book is not for everyone, I can see many hating it, if you have strong opinions about religion and homosexuality maybe you should pass on this one.
I give it 5 stars - just brilliant
This book is for my Thriller & Suspense Challenge
