Honeycomb serves up a social experiment with unexpected outcomes.


The Description

Publication Date: July 9, 2024

Big Brother meets Black Mirror in this high-concept thriller in which six strangers take part in a mysterious medical experiment in an isolated mansion.

Amanda Pearson was once the hottest rising star in the music world. Not anymore. Washed up, broke and directionless following a public breakdown, she is certain she will never be adored again. But she is very wrong.

Her old manager calls her out of the blue with an opportunity: a week’s stay at an isolated mansion with five strangers, all under constant observation. Every day they must take a pill. Five people will be taking a placebo, but one person will take an experimental drug that they are assured has no adverse side effects. So, what’s the catch? Amanda isn’t sure, but the pay is too tempting to turn down.

However, it soon becomes clear that this is no ordinary experiment. Each day Amanda discovers more about her fellow housemates, that the old mansion holds horrifying secrets, and that there is no way out…

The Review

A designer drug claiming to deliver incredible benefits for morale, ensuring that entertainers continue performing at their highest potential, is ready for human trials.

Singer Amanda Pearson lost her career thanks to an out-of-control drug habit. Now drug-free, she’s been offered a chance to participate in a social experiment with five other people. The catch? The group will stay in a secluded mansion for a week and will be required to take a daily pill. Five will be taking a placebo.

Author S.B. Caves lays the foundation for a thrilling ethical adventure in Honeycomb. With diverse characters, there’s no doubt that conflict will happen.

As the backstories unfold, strange behavior begins taking place. Locked in, monitored by cameras, the impact of the drug escalates to a breaking point.

Honeycomb serves up a social experiment with unexpected outcomes.

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
