Overview

After a brutal mugging in Manhattan leaves him with a broken arm and fractured skull, insurance investigator Jeff Resnick reluctantly agrees to recover at the home of his estranged half brother, Richard. At first, Jeff believes his graphic nightmares of a slaughtered buck are just the workings of his traumatized mind. But when a local banker is found in the same condition, Jeff believes the attack has left him with a sixth sense--an ability to witness murder before it happens. Piecing together clues he saw in his visions, Jeff attempts to solve the crime. His brother Richard is skeptical, but unsettling developments begin to forge a tentative bond. Soon, things that couldn't be explained by premonition come to light, and Jeff finds himself probing into dangerous secrets that touch his own traumatic past in wintry Buffalo--and the killer is ready to eliminate Jeff's visions permanently.

MURDER ON THE MIND is a gripping debut by a skilled author. L.L. Bartlett pulls no punches when it comes to her characters, and ably draws us along to search for the answers right along with Jeff Resnick and his skeptical brother. Both brothers have plenty to learn about each other along the way--and they have to learn fast, because the murderer isn't cutting them any slack. It's a dark-edged story written with concise efficiency--be prepared to discover a fresh new reading experience (and to be glad you did!).

I was hooked before the end of the first chapter of Murder on the Mind. Who is Jeff Resnick and why is he having visions of a deer hunt? Then, after being visciously mugged, he wakes up with more issues than he had while he was just unemployed and down-on-his-luck. His half-brother takes him to Buffalo to recuperate. Here L.L. Bartlett add layers to the mystery surrounding Jeff. However, it wasn't just the visions that I wanted to know about; I wanted to know about the brothers and why they seemed so estranged. Where was the rest of Jeff's family? I wanted to know about Richard, the half-brother and Brenda, his girlfriend. Jeff seems to know as little about Richard as he does himself. Bartlett manages to weave a great mystery with equally great characterizations. Every page turned takes you deeper into the visions that Jeff has, the murder(s) and his strained relationships. When I finished 'Murder on the Mind' I wanted more. I anxiously await more Jeff Resnick mysteries.

Jeff Resnick of "Murder on the Mind" is a much more complex character than meets the eye when we first meet him - and he does not particularly want to be a complicated guy. Quite the opposite. But his discovery of how his life changed following a mugging, the graphic images of a murder that keep flashing through his head, and attempting to rebuild his personal life following a life-changing head injury make for a fascinating plot with lots of action. Here's hoping that there will be more Jeff Resnick stories in the future!

I grew up with Ellery Queen (Dannay and Lee), Mike Hammer (Mickey Spillane) and The Hardy Boys (Franklin W. Dixon-ghost writer) in the whodunit styles. L. L. Bartlett's series is more than whodunit. The series adds beatemup, shootemup and bangemup. With Bartlett's books, I find it hard to find a stopping place.

Well written, but the main character didn't do much "detecting" and thinking. He did the footwork after the clues popped into his head, so it was hard for me to have a high opinion of his skills. Weak ending. The occasional unexpected font changes were distracting. There should be a way to correct this at the publishing office.

It didn't take but a few pages until I was completely wrapped up in Jeff's unusual new ability and where it was going to take him. The banter between he and his half brother added a real sense of normalcy to the life of a man who was experiencing anything but normal dreams and visions. I would highly recommend this Jeff Resnick mystery and after reading this free eBook, I have gone on to read several more in the series as well as a couple of short stories which include Jeff in them as well.

Murder on the MInd has what I like in a mystery -- strong characters, driven plot and a paranormal twist. I look forward to Jeff's next adventure.

This was interesting and believeable. The characters are well-developed with real problems, not just perfect subjects found in many novels. While you know who-dun-it early on, it's still enjoyable to read.

This book is amazing, I was skeptical at first but within the first few pages I was sucked in. It's written very skillfully and I can't wait to see if it continues into a series. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age who wants a good mystery book.

This book was truly an amazing read. Once I started I could not put the book down! There are only a few books that can do that to me. Nonetheless, I am so excited that she continued with a series. Looking forward to more reads from this great author. :)

Very good book! I liked the idea of the story line and I'm looking forward to what Mr. Resnick "sees" next! I hope the old lady in the bakery is in the next one too! That was a nice add in. I do wish there was a way to convert these books better! The typeface change is a bit annoying.

Good book. Like the concept of having the mugging result in Jeff's awakening of his psychic power. I had a hard time believing he didn't land himself into more trouble with the police with all of his snooping.

I just finished reading LL Bartlett's Murder on the Mind. Good local color presents an appealing portrait of a little known city. Estranged brothers find a way to reach out to each other. The hero finds himself experiencing other people's emotions which add both information and mystery to the story without overwhelming it or making it simplistic. It's a fun read. I hope number two in the series is out soon.

Murder on the Mind, by L.L. Bartlett, is a remarkable story that pulls the reader in with subtle foreshadowing and rich character development. I appreciated the clarity of the writing, finding it moved the story along at a very quick pace, making it hard to put the book down until I had devoured the last page. L.L. Bartlett writes with skill, guiding the reader along Jeffrey Resnick's path as he explores a new found talent which forces him to help in solving crimes, and while he tries to convince everyone, including himself, that this talent is indeed something to trust. L.L. Bartlett weaves a story about psychic abilities into something that will leave the reader wanting more. Often, books with psychic phenomena in their plot line leave a great deal to be desired, but in Murder on the Mind, L.L. Bartlett provides solid action and intriguing twists and turns that are nothing but well executed. This was a book I thought about and chewed over for days after finishing it, and to me, that means it was an excellent story. I do hope this is the beginning of a long series following Resnick and his family, as I was left with a lot of interesting questions!
