I had previous reviewed one of Douglas E Richards novels before "The Cure" ---it was certainly a ride I will never forget!. When asked if I would read and review Mind's Eye I said yes quicker then a New York Second. Am I ever glad I did. This book caught me from the first sentence and didn't let go until the last. I certainly did not guess what the ending would be nor who the real bad guy was.
Imagine waking up in a dumpster with no memory who you are or how you got there but know somehow that someone is out to kill you. This is what happens to Nick Hall--who also discovers to his dismay and possible sanity that he can hear EVERYTHING everyone is thinking!! Or almost everyone--then realizes he is also telepathic to a select few, and can access the internet with his mind and view it as if it were in front of him.
I want you all to read the first few chapters-click below-and tell me that you are not caught up almost immediately in this cloak and dagger techno thriller (if you dare that is!) I read this in one sitting--just couldn't let go--If I could give this book greater then a 5 I would!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
The breathtaking new science-fiction/technothriller from the New York Times bestselling author of WIRED.
"Richards is a tremendous new talent." --Stephen Coonts, 17-time New York Times bestselling author of Pirate Alley
When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster--bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head--he knows things are bad. But they're about to get far worse. Because he's being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?
As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights--or bring about its total collapse.
Extrapolated from actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind's Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.
"Recalls the best of Michael Crichton. A keep-you-up-all-night thriller. Intense action, mind-blowing concepts, & breathtaking twists. Enjoy the ride." --Boyd Morrison, bestselling author of The Vault, on WIRED.
"Will keep you turning the pages all night long." --Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Impact, on The Cure.
