Book Review -Mind War (Nick Hall Book #3)-Douglas E Richards

Friday, December 2, 2016

If you ever thought you would like to read other peoples minds--this book will change your mind in a New York second! I have read all 3 of this series and it has me VERY nervous. It is too close to what actually might happen if a way was found to give everyone on earth the ability to read minds. Nick Hall, who has this ability, wishes he couldn't and who can blame him. I mean how would you be able to tolerate a million voices all resonating at once in your mind! He is used by the government---then hood winked by them. A major crime boss is after the science so he can sell it to the highest bidder--actually there is another fanatic after it too. And there is a soldier who is given this ability--he ultimately disappears--hum--another book for this series?

If you enjoy Sci Fi and non stop action all loosely based on fact-you will love this series. Each can be read as a stand alone of you want-but my suggestion is to read them in order!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Nick Hall returns in a riveting stand-alone thriller, set in a stunning future that is rapidly approaching.

From the NY Times bestselling author whose books have been downloaded over a million times.

Nick Hall has revolutionary electronics implanted in his brain that allow him to read minds—including thoughts, memories, and even intent. He can know the passwords, future strategies, and innermost secrets of anyone he chooses, making him the most formidable man alive. But his status as the only mind reader in the world is about to change . . .

Soon Hall is fighting for his life as he races to stop an unimaginably despicable terror plot. But his problems are only beginning. Because when a member of his inner circle betrays him, and the secret to mind reading leaks out, he is forced to wage war against a merciless mind reader of nearly unequaled brilliance. One who will stop at nothing to kill Hall, his colleagues, and the woman he loves. And one who is intent on ushering in a dramatic transformation of the human species—even at the cost of billions of lives.

Based on actual research on computer-assisted mind reading, MindWar is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

"Richards is a tremendous new talent" (Stephen Coonts) who can "keep you turning the pages all night long" (Douglas Preston)

"Richards is a worthy successor to Michael Crichton"(SF Book.com)

$25 Amazon/PP plus Book-A MERRY CHRISTMAS WEDDING MYSTERY Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery #4-Anna C Burke-Ends 12/22

If you have read any of the others in this delightful series you will know that Mad Max (the creator and owner of Marvelous Marley World) is a character unto himself--you never know what he is going to come up with or do next!! Well this time he decided to hijack Georgie Shaw and Detective Jack Wheeler’s Christmas wedding. Georgie is bound and determined to stop him--NO WAY is she going to wear the style dress he has decreed!! (And I for one don't blame her). Just as she is about to tell him so--the actress, who is the star of the newest movie production Mad Max is putting together--goes missing--vamoose--gone--along with her cat!! Now who and why would anyone want to kidnap this woman? It is up to Georgie and Jack to figure it all out--and there are so many suspects. Finding the right one was not easy--and I doubt you will guess who it was or why they did it!!

Twists and turns galore and quite a few laughs along the way as well--I am eagerly awaiting the next in this series!!!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

There’s less than a month to go before Georgie Shaw and Detective Jack Wheeler’s Christmas wedding. With Georgie’s boss “Mad Max” Marley involved, the whole affair becomes much more complicated. Determined to keep the wedding plans from being derailed, Georgie pays Max a visit on the set of Marvelous Marley World’s newest feature film, The Lonely Swan Prince. The sudden disappearance of the movie’s leading lady plunges Georgie and Jack into the middle of a mystery. Where’s the missing diva? If she didn’t vanish on her own accord whodunit and why?

Life is an extravaganza! figuring out how to hang tough and make the most of the wild ride is the challenge.

On my way to Oahu to join the rock musician and high school drop-out I had met in San Diego and married in Tijuana, I was nabbed by the police as a runaway. When the police let me go and the rock band broke up, my husband and I had to find another way to survive. Our next stop: Disney World where we trained to be chefs, courtesy of the Walt Disney World University. A GED for my husband and many more years of education landed us in academia at The Ohio State University. Retired now from my role as a professor in social work and behavioral science, I have picked up a long-time interest in writing fiction. I'm still married to the same sweet guy and live with him in the Palm Springs area. In addition to reading and writing fiction, I enjoy painting, hiking, hanging out with my handsome husband and tending to my Siamese kitties.

An award-winning and bestselling author I enjoy snooping into life's mysteries with fun, fiction, & food—California style! My books include the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series set in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, the Corsario Cove Cozy Mystery series set on California’s Central Coast, and The Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery series set in Orange County, California--the OC. Coming soon: The Misadventures of Betsy Stark also set here in the Coachella Valley. Find out more at http://www.desertcitiesmystery.com
