Book Review: 90 Seconds from Sanity

Title: 90 Seconds from Sanity

Author: C.J. Wilton




Michael Flannery’s life is going well. He has a good job, and today he plans to meet his beautiful wife, Ellen, to find out the sex of their first baby. It is the happiest day of his life—until it isn’t. Michael gets stuck at the office, and by the time he gets to the clinic, Ellen is gone.

From there, things go from bad to worse. Everything around him indicates Ellen died four days earlier. The police’s suspicions are growing. But Ellen keeps calling Michael, assuring him that she is fine.

Did Michael kill his wife? Why can’t he remember anything? And if Ellen is truly dead, who keeps calling him?

Michael’s life and grasp on reality crumble as he struggles to understand conflicting realities over the course of a single day in 90 Seconds from Sanity, the new psychological thriller by author C.J. Wilton.

This book is intended for mature audiences.



My review

5/5 Stars

So. Many. Twists.

This book very much had the feeling of a Gillian Flynn novel, it was that grand of a psychological thriller, a page turner from the very beginning. I was drawn in by the intensity of Michael’s emotions from his love for his wife to his concern that he’s lost his mind and finally the despair of succumbing to it all.

Michael’s uncertainty of events gives the audience the same feeling. This of course kept me reading. I had to find out which reality was the truth and which one was only in his head. The ending of 90 Seconds from Sanity was just as explosive as the beginning and I can’t wait to see if this book will become a series. Even if it doesn’t, I won’t forget about it for a long time!

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
