“Mind Games: A Brick City Story” is suspenseful contemporary fiction about a young man named Des. After being pulled into a life of drug dealing, he leads a group called HoodaBoyz on the street, but as the novel opens his life is about to change—his father, Ray, has died and left him not only a mansion and an estate, but millions of dollars. Since Des never even knew his father’s name, this comes as a shock.  As the story progresses, Des must deal with not only the alliances and betrayals of his street life, but he also struggles to learn more about his inheritance and the mysterious Jones Dynasty—his sassy grandmother Gwen tells him he must discover his past for himself.  “Mind Games” is a novel with a little bit of everything. Des is the brains of his operation, and it’s an interesting contrast to see him bring together his old world with his new one. His clashes with his cousin, Trey, and with Dante, who wants the Jones Dynasty for himself, add a sense of tension to the novel, while his interactions with his grandmother add some humor (despite being a tough and competent woman, she does not appreciate swearing). Des is an interesting character, smart and savvy; he may be involved in an illegal trade, but he still ultimately has a good and big heart, making him complex. The book is well-plotted, especially the parts dealing with Des uncovering more about his father and his past, and Des’s entanglements with Shea, Dessie, and others also bring an element of romance to the story.  Recommended to readers who would enjoy a gritty story that doesn’t shy away from the violence of the drug trade, and also weaves in elements of mystery, action, and romance.
