Façade for a Fantasy [Book 1 | Connivance Se...
"The question is not what he is, but rather what he is not."
After the unexpected suicide of Lea Carpenter, daughter Anne Carpenter decides to participate in the experimental project her mother had recently resigned from. As an aspiring, biological sciences student with every intention of making a career, she has no trouble to get in. Being the youngest among her colleagues and daughter to the principal shareholder of the facility, Martin Carpenter, she struggles with all the negativity thrown at her. Besides being the target of derision, she has to deal with an ethical dilemma which goes far beyond her understanding.
Human experimentation is not exactly what Anne had expected when she had signed the non-disclosure agreement, regardless, it does not abstain her from her pursuit of knowledge.
Despite having more enemies than she can count, she is backed up by the mysterious Jonathan Remington, a certified behaviourist, who seems to know more about the experiment than he lets on.
And the subject, a man defined by his intense grief and rage, may just thaw her heart and shatter the future Anne had yearned for.
Naturally, it is only a matter of time before Anne becomes entangled in a web of lies, guilt and secrecy. Will she be able to cut free and make a life-changing decision, of which the consequences are far greater than can ever be foreseen?
[This is the first installment in the Connivance Series, which contains a reasonable amount of gore, controversy and sexual themes. It is not recommended for the light hearted.]
