Overview

Jeff Resnick hardly knew his well-heeled half-brother. But after suffering a fractured skull in a vicious mugging, he reluctantly accepts the fact that he has a long and brutal recovery to face—and his closest of kin can provide him with the time and place to do it.

Now, Jeff is haunted by unexplained visions of a heinous crime—a banker, stalked, killed, and eviscerated like a ten-point buck. When Matt Sumner’s murder is discovered, a still-recovering Jeff realizes this was what he had seen. Jeff must not only convince himself of his new-found psychic ability, but also his skeptical brother Richard Alpert. Since Sumner was Richard’s banker, both brothers have a stake in finding out what happened. With Richard’s reluctant help, Jeff’s investigation leads him to Sumner’s belligerent family and hard-nosed business associates, none of whom want him snooping around.

When Jeff discovers a second victim, he knows he must relentlessly chase his quarry even if it means risking his brother’s life.

EDITORIAL REVIEWS:
This is a high-powered drama filled with interesting characters that add dimension to a tightly paced story with a good kick at the end. -- RT Magazine (4 Stars)
Midwest Book Review
This fine paranormal amateur sleuth will send readers shuffling off to Buffalo to accompany Jeff on his investigation.
Books N-Bytes
I sincerely hope after reading Murder on the Mind by L. L. Bartlett that I've just witnessed the birth of a new mystery series. This well-written novel features widower Jeffrey Resnick, a down-on-his-luck insurance investigator. On the eve of starting a new job and turning his life around, Jeffrey becomes just another New York statistic; a victim of a violent, senseless mugging that leaves him battered and brain damaged. What follows is exciting and action packed. I couldn't put the book down.
The Book Bitch
A skull fracture gives Jeff Resnick the ability to “see” crimes” starting with the murder of his brother’s banker. Then there is another victim : the banker’s wife. Resnick must find out the truth to protect himself and his brother, even at the risk of his life. Nicely written and quite twisty.

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett’s pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it’s her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, and now the Tales of Telenia fantasy saga, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

    A Stand-Out Debut

    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 got hooked from the beginning

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Amazing

    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. :)

    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.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book!

    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.

    Loved it

    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.
