Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Mind of a Killer by Lee Emerick

The book details the acts of a demented serial killer named “The Hacker.”

Ian Rivers is a cop with psychic abilities.   He can see through the eyes of killers.  This ability enables him to have an enviable record of success in the apprehension of the worst criminals.

Karl, Ian’s partner, is pulled into the maelstrom that surrounds Ian’s interaction with the notorious “Hacker”.   Karl demonstrates admirable loyalty to his good friend and partner, Ian.

Ian’s psychic episodes leave him emotionally vulnerable and drained.   The toll of chasing killers mounts up.   Ian’s mental state is a large part of the book’s impact. 

Mr. Emerick portrays his characters vividly.   The settings could be fleshed out a bit more.   For me, the erratic nature of the protagonist made it difficult for me to buy into the story line.  

In some ways delving into the mind of the “Hacker” is akin to scuba diving in a septic tank, murky, merciless and vile.   This is most definitely a psycho thriller.  

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
