Overview

What do we really know about reality and its inner workings? Is everything really as it seems? Are the laws of physics accurate? How do we know for sure? What if you were on course to tapping into real truths about the mysteries of life, how far would you go to prove your theories? Well, Dr. Banister, a prominent university professor committed to researching the mysteries of ontology has all too often used his own family as research subjects. Now, he's gone missing and his work is abruptly stopped. Or is it? A team of investigators fail to find the body, and questions arise against Melissa his wife. Many believe foul play at the woman's hands, but the lead detective believes otherwise, and his convictions are strengthened when he thinks he's heard the missing man's voice. The wife confides that she's heard it also, and her children claim to have seen their father in the nearby woods. The lead detective stubbles across material evidence that proves the professor's not quite missing, but revealing it would come at great personal cost. After years of hiding, the detective comes face-to-face with a past that threatens to surface. He must decide: will he protect his secret at the expense of the investigation? The plot thickens as a baffling new clue leads investigators to a pool of blood. An audio trailer is available at the books official website.

    Highly Recommended Read! Loved it.

    Couldn't put this page turner down. Enjoyed the lively characters and the interesting scientific dialogue. Sounded almost plausible and hauntingly eerie.

    Enjoyed this read. What an imagination. That Jonathan Banister sounds like a psycho doc. He deserved what he got. A cruel bastard. It irked me that Melissa was so loyal to him. I was glad that she got a bit of attention from Stanley. But Stanley, he sure had a creepy, secretive past. I don't think he should have hidden it. Carla seemed like a nice lady but a bit dense at times. I also liked the kids, but what a head trip to see your dad from a distance and then to "not" see him. What a loon, experimenting on his own children.

    Loved "Mind Games"

    Good writing. I really liked the sexual tension between Melissa Banister and Stanley Johnson. And I liked the rogue sensuality of Billy Taylor.
