Book Review-A Wrinkle in the Mind (The Mind Sleuth Series)-Bruce Perrin

Monday, May 23, 2022

In all honesty I wasn't quite sure what was going on in the very beginning of this novel-but after a few pages it all came together!

Try to imagine something that can alter your brain in such a way that someone's minds and actions can be controlled--frightening and I hope that it is never invented-but that is what happens in this book! Woman are being targeted to murder congress people-then programmed to commit suicide. And the guy doing it--well he enjoys killing women as well--a real psychopath. He is leading a double life and it was extremely difficult to figure out who it was. Rebecca Marte and one of her friends would not give up.

This is the 5th book in this series and I have read and reviewed each one in order! Now waiting for the 6th.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

"A suspense-filled, gritty thriller packed full of twists and turns."- A Wishing Shelf Book Review

When Violet Cruz accused U.S. Representative Alan Barclay of being “the spawn of a Martian whore” and took a shot at him, everyone agreed that she was delusional. It was just another conspiracy theory in Washington, DC, where such bizarre claims had become all too common.

Tiring of the media harassing the family, however, Cruz’s cousin brought the case to Private Investigator Rebecca Marte. She figured that the public was probably right. Rebecca was, however, willing to give the case another look as Cruz’s sudden, total break from reality without any apparent cause was almost as strange as her beliefs.

Soon, the question becomes: Conspiracy theory or a brilliant smokescreen for political assassination? Long before she has the answer, however, Rebecca finds she’s going to have to bet the life of one of her best friends on the little she knows and all that she suspects.
