Orphaned at 13 and shuffled through foster care, CHLOE STANTON never quite belonged. Her life takes on a Cinderella quality when she marries SCOTT, a brilliant neuroscientist who finally gives her the love and security she always craved. Her art career flourishes. She lives in a beautiful home. She has everything until Scott’s RESEARCH ASSISTANT turns up dead and Chloe starts asking questions.

Why does Scott pressure her to take medication? And why is he so secretive about his research? And most chilling – why does she have the same recurring dream of a population of empty, emotionless souls?

To find the answers, Chloe fears she has to give up everything she ever wanted or risk becoming one of the gray, soulless people in her dreams – victims of a far-reaching mind control program called Thought Farming.
