The book centers around Lisa's brilliant ability to categorize her memories and break down details that will ultimately help her escape. Lisa studies her jailer and concocts a plan to seek revenge upon all involved in the heinous plan to kill her and steal her baby.
There are also FBI agents following leads but they have few resources, it's only the two agents looking for the missing teen. They're own history plays perfectly into the plot of this book and gives the reader insight into how previous psychological damage in the agents help them track down their victim and also help the agents understand the actions Lisa took to survive.
This book is a solid five out of five. I know some other reviewers found details about Method 15/33 unbelievable but I know people like Lisa. They are not sociopathic but they do have the unusual ability to shut off emotions that will do them no good in certain situations. Although this thriller is unique, the psychology of survival juxtaposed against super intelligence is exciting to experience and keeps the reader enthralled. I highly recommend this book, although you may not want to read it in the dark!
