Spotlight – The Doubt Factory by Paolo Bacigalupi


 What if everything you knew about your life was a lie?

The Doubt Factory by New York Times bestselling author Paolo Bacigalupi was released on the 7th April 2016, published by Atom!

I have recently read this powerful thrilling read which leaves you with plenty to think about.

The Doubt Factory tells the story of Alix who’s whole world is turned upside because of a group called 2.0 and is action packed and full of suspense!

I was also informed that Paolo used real companies and drugs in his novel to expose this ‘Doubt Factory’ and is incredibly well researched, reflected by the investigation the main character Alix undertakes in the book.

It’s an insightful read.

51aPP8toh7L._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_Everything Alix knows about her life is a lie–at least according to the mysterious young man who’s been stalking her. But could her dad really be a bad guy at the helm of an organization that covers up the deadly wrongdoings of some of the country’s most rich and powerful? Alix has to make an impossible choice between her father and the young man she’s not only falling for, but who’s asking her to blow the whistle on the man who raised her. Could someone you have loved and have known for your whole life actually have the heart of a killer?
