Imagine an America in which women have been limited to speaking only 100 hundred words per day; otherwise the “bracelet” counter sends a jolt of electricity strong enough to scar. Even female children are subjected to this in a male-dominated society ruled by a crazed pastor and his flock, known as “The Pure”. Dr. Jean McLellan, a former eminent neuroscientist, has been released from her bonds because the president’s brother has suffered an injury to the brain which requires a serum she and her team were developing. Soon she discovers something more sinister than she could have ever imagined – a weaponized anti-serum that could silence millions of innocent people who oppose “The Pure”. An unsettling but thrilling page-turner.
