Melissa Hartman has genius locked inside of her, and so do you. The question is: what kind of genius? The awesome potential of the human mind is an incredible thing, but it is also a very dangerous thing.

I got the order of these books confused and started reading the next one in the series first, which absolutely hooked me and meant I dashed back off to buy the first one second so I could carry on reading book 2 whilst fully informed. The writing flows superbly, the characterization is impeccable and the whole idea of the work is unaccountably wonderful.

there was a huge emphasis on Melissa and of course a lot left to answer, it's clear that, although this episode is over, there's more to come.
Not a half bad story. The continuous plot twists kept me laughing thought that's probably an unintentional reaction. Here's the bad guy, PLOT TWIST, there's also this bad guy, PLOT TWIST, and also this bad guy, PLOT TWIST, but here's the real murderer, PLOT TWIST this bad guy isn't such a bad guy, PLOT TWIST, PLOT TWIST, PLOT TWIST.

Excellent book

I honestly didn't expect much out of this book. however, it was an exciting read, one with many plot twists that left me with my mouth open wide in surprise. highly recommend this book.
I will start by saying that I am sure that this story is not for everyone, but for me it was perfect. I have a psychology degree, and while I did not specialize in biopsychology, I studied the brain enough to thoroughly be entertained by this book.

I loved the premise, the characters, the unexpected twists... Highly recommended!

Can't wait to read Undetectable.

P.S. - I read this under it's re-released title of Untapped.
The initial chapters were a little strange because it flip-flopped between the two main protagonists too often. Nonetheless the main plot or idea was interesting and decent. Glad the author didn't try to make it as happily ever after ending, that would have ruined it. The scientific part is a little weird, but other than that, the human characters had some time to develop, some more than others.
Very good story. I was let down by the ending. It was so abrupt. Surely there is a part two?
A really enjoyable book, the science, was of course highly speculative, that's the point of the book. Some of the down to earth technology was a bit off too, which was not necessary. Good despite that.

Great book! Goes into the mind of a brilliant and twisted genius who seeks revenge in a detailed and gruesome way. There were some weaker moments in the middle, but overall a great read!
