Delirious by Daniel Palmer

About the Book: Charlie Giles is at the top of his game. An electronics superstar, he’s sold his startup company to a giant Boston firm, where he’s now a senior director. With his dog, Monte, at his side, Charlie is treated like a VIP everywhere he goes.

Then one day, everything in Charlie’s neatly ordered world starts to go terrifyingly wrong. His prestigious job and his inventions are wrenched away from him. His family is targeted, and his former employers are dying gruesomely, picked off one by one. Every sign, every shred of evidence, points to Charlie as a cold-blooded killer. And soon Charlie is unable to tell whether he’s succumbed to the pressures of work and become the architect of his own destruction, or whether he’s the victim of a relentless, diabolical attack. In a desperate struggle to save his life, Charlie races to uncover the truth, all the while realizing that nothing can be trusted — least of all his own fractured mind…

My Thoughts: Reading a book by a new author can sometimes be scary, but it can also open up new doors for me when it comes to what I read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Delirious by Daniel Palmer. I'm not sure if it's because it includes a lot of technology and also mental health, which are big interests of mine. Whatever the reason, Daniel Palmer's Delirious was able to capture my attention and hold it.  Delirious takes you into the world of high tech corporate America and a family that has some serious mental health problems. Charlie, who was able to escape the illness that has scarred his family, comes to a breaking point when he loses his job, his mother has a stroke and he has to move in with his brother who suffers from the same illness he thought he escaped, schizophrenia. Charlie then begins wondering if he really did escape the illness. The story line and it's twists are very intriguing and captivating. When reading this novel there were some parts of it that made me think of James Patterson's novels. I am very thankful that I was given the opportunity to review this books. I look forward to reading another book by this author.

Delirious will be available in stores and online in both book and eBook format on January 25th.
