  1. Abandoned at about 80 pages A great premise and lots of potential but I couldn t get past the clunky and rather flat prose.

  2. Psychological crime fiction with horror science fantasy elements 3.5 Stars The premise is original with a well thought out serial murderer storyline that includes a villain that terrifies a flawed, Xanax addicted protagonist and horror born of science fantasy The atmosphere is appropriately dark and sometimes desperate As a whole, the writing is good, but I had difficulties with the flash backs forwards, which were often awkwardly executed None of the characters were particularly likable Psychological crime fiction with horror science fantasy elements 3.5 Stars The premise is original with a well thought out serial murderer storyline that includes a villain that terrifies a flawed, Xanax addicted protagonist and horror born of science fantasy The atmosphere is appropriately dark and sometimes desperate As a whole, the writing is good, but I had difficulties with the flash backs forwards, which were often awkwardly executed None of the characters were particularly likable, so I followed the creepy but often pitiable POV of Victor Lazar, the villain who suffered horrific abuse as a child Victor survived his brutal life in an orphanage and became a formidable murderer Less interesting but necessary to the story the soul revealing POV of psychologist Alex Madison, the protagonist whose middle upper class childhood ticked all the boxes for psychological...

  3. TranceThis story is exciting and disturbing Anything about mind control should scream wrong specially when children and violence are part of the picture That being said, I was unable to read this book straight through I needed time away from children who are being severely punished when they do not conform to their expected standard.The most disturbing aspect is the possibility this could happen Some humans welcome complete control over others If they are particularly drawn to young, helple TranceThis story is exciting and disturbing Anything about mind control should scream wrong specially when children and violence are part of the picture That being said, I w...

  4. A SIMPLE MAN S REVIEW Bleh The story promises some sort of supernatural thriller , but since the author explains the mysterious skill pretty early on, the supernatural element quickly vanishes And for the thriller part The story is quite predictable and you ll have it all figured out WAY before the end The idea behind the mysterious skill of the antagonist is pretty interesting It sort of takes what we already know about psychology and pushes it to an eleven or thirteen, but you d hav A SIMPLE MAN S REVIEW Bleh The story promises some sort of supernatural thriller , but since...

  5. Another one where the plot sounded intriguing and original but the writing didn t live up to the promise Victor was found at the scene of a gruesome murder suicide and is taken into custody but things soon escalate to the point where he is able to control minds and escape So far, so interesting but the hero Alex, a former forensic psychologist who is brought in to investigate soon makes the storyline ridiculous His Porsche gets a mention, plus his pill popping addiction, his problematic relat Another one where the plot sounded intriguing and original but the writing didn t live up to the promise Victor was found at the scene of a gruesome murder suicide and is...

  6. Decent first bookI was not grabbed from the get go Took some time and several times I almost left unread I slogged through pages of often confusing or dull prose The main character is very flawed and elicits no redeeming qualities Main characters should have something to like He proves himself to be inept as husband, partner and dr I figured out the Sophie connection immediately after her second appearance as well as good old dad The final and furious ending was also no surprise Figured Decent first bookI was not grabbed from the get go Took some time and several times I almost left unread I slogged through pages of often confusing or d...

Dr Alex Madison is called to give a psychologic assessment of Victor Lazar, a mysterious Romanian native, who was sitting outside a lecture hall where a horrific murder suicide took place As Alex tries to find outabout Victor, he begins a journey down the rabbit hole of secret research and cruel experimentation on orphaned children I was caught up in this story from the beginning by its unusual nature making it hard to review without giving away too much I found it very hard to put dow Dr A...

  8. A gripping read This is quite a gripping read even though I must admit the story did not feel new to me and I was able to guess the plot twists before they happened, it was well written and engaging nonetheless Alex ...

  10. Since I barely managed about 50 pages, this isa brief opinion than a review Or maybe a reminder to myself to keep me from forgetting and picking it up again a year from now This book needs work A lot of work Really, Thomas Mercer, where are your editors I don t want to bash the writing, but it s stilted and awkward and Yeah, you get the point I didn t like it I recommend reading the sample before you purchase this one You might love it Or not Either way, you ll know with Si...
