‘Mindless’ is my newest Psychological thriller since the release of ‘Passing Through’ and one that I am quite excited about. ‘Mindless’ is a tale that I geared directly at adults; this book is not for the young mind. The reason for going back to this genre was based around the response I got from my book ‘Passing Through’, which seemed to garner a larger fan base and made me realize that perhaps fans wanted me to stick with Psychological thrillers. Personally, I was ready for such a change myself.
I wrote the book with the full intention of disturbing the reader. That was the reason for Melvin Frink’s mental instability being as shaky as it was. This guy has been through so much in his life, so many terrible things at the hand of his own mother, that even though he had made it all the way to Johns Hopkins University, he was walking a fine line in his mind. Before his accident, he was shy around girls and had, in fact, never even dated. This wasn’t for lack of trying, but after suffering his brain injury, Melvin became not only sick of being lonely, he decided that trying wasn’t worth it; he was going to make it happen, and the best way he could think of doing that was to take the girls he wanted and render them incapable of not loving him back, whether they wanted to or not. This character, having had an obsession with the outlawed lobotomy procedure, believed that it could be perfected and used with enough study, and he believed that he would be the one to do it. What better way to practice than on his little ‘pets’? Not only that, he gets to use them for his sick perversions as well.
Now, let’s turn our attention to his mother, Adele Frink. Adele has been a sick woman from day one, as readers will come to discover. She is bipolar with schizophrenic tendencies which have been dumped on her son from day one; she even rid herself of her rich husband for her own benefit. Now, Adele doesn’t see how she is abusive; this woman truly believes she has her son’s best interest at heart, no matter how despicable her actions toward him, and with him, are. It is Adele and Adele alone that has caused the initial emotional trauma that the brain injury spurns in Melvin, though in her mind the brain injury alone is to blame. She sees no wrongdoing in any way on her own part. To her, life is about self-fulfillment at any cost, including the lives of others.
Now, why did I choose to write such a sexually disturbing and violent novel after so many that were so mild-mannered? Many, many reasons come to mind. For one, fans expressed a liking for my novels, ‘Passing Through’, ‘Brother’s Keeper’, and ‘Box Office Butcher’; all three are Psychological thrillers. I felt that it was time to indulge my own love for thrillers while satisfying my fan base by giving them what they wanted. ‘Mindless’, while much more disturbing in many ways than the others, was just what I think we all needed to bring us the satisfaction of reading a book that kept us turning pages just to find out what type of sickening behavior could occur on the next page. I think readers will be surprised, and it is my hope that they enjoy every last page.
I also understand that there are those who will not like the book. That’s okay. As individuals, we must be true to what we prefer, and this will definitely not be the book for everyone. I wrote it for my Psychological thriller fans. I should warn those who prefer more laid-back plot lines that this should be avoided by you if this type of thing is not your preference.
