AN ANONYMOUS GIRL by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

From Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the authors of the top ten bestseller The Wife Between Us, comes An Anonymous Girl – an electrifying novel about doubt, passion and deadly obsession . . .


Seeking women ages 18–32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed. 

When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money and leave.

But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive, and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr Shields may know what she’s thinking . . . and what she’s hiding.

As Jess’s paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what is real in her life, and what is one of Dr Shields’s manipulative experiments.

Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.


Excellent writing by two authors who clearly know how to write a psychological thriller that is sure to keep readers addicted right to the final pages.

It was an interesting concept to use psychological studies which made it impossible to know who to trust. I did not find the story predictable at all which was a nice change after reading so many thrillers I tend to work out the ending beforehand – I didn’t here!

There are some questions within the book which I found thought-provoking and had me considering what my answer would have been. I loved it!

My sincere thanks to NetGalley and Pan Macmillan for an advanced readers copy of ‘An Anonymous Girl’ by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Greer Hendricks: co-author of the New York Times bestseller, The Wife Between Us and the forthcoming An Anonymous Girl.

Prior to becoming a novelist, Greer Hendricks spent two decades as an editor at Simon & Schuster. She obtained her master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University, and her writing has appeared in The New York Times, Allure, and Publishers Weekly. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and two children.

Sarah Pekkanen: #1 New York Times bestselling author who loves my kids, my dog, chocolate, and climbing mountains. Usually in that order.

Sarah is the mother of three boys, which explains why she wrote part of her debut novel at Chuck E. Cheese. Seriously. Sarah penned her first book, Miscellaneous Tales and Poems, at the age of 10. When publishers failed to jump upon this literary masterpiece (hey, all the poems rhymed!) Sarah followed up by sending them a sternly-worded letter on Raggedy Ann stationery. Sarah still has that letter, and carries it to New York every time she has meetings with her publisher, as a reminder that dreams do come true. Sarah Pekkanen is also the author of eight solo novels.
