An unspeakable crime at a time when the RWK Clark brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling stories to date. Step into the mind of a sociopath. Melvin finds himself harboring fantasies and psychotic thoughts that lead him down a dark path.
Get ready to meet the most hideous menace ever in this spine-tingling serial killer psychological thriller.

'Mindless' is a new 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 on the response I got from my book 'Passing Through,' which seemed to garner a more extensive 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, that even though he had made it all the way to med school, 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 mindless.
Why did I choose to write such a sexually disturbing and violent psycho-thriller 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,' 'Retribution,' and 'Box Office Butcher'; all four 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 other novels. It was just what I think we all needed to bring us the satisfaction of reading a book that kept us turning pages to find out what type of sickening behavior could occur on the next page. I think readers will be surprised, and I hope that they enjoy every last page of this suspense thriller.
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.
I have to admit that I was ready for something a bit more gritty, and I don't think that I have it out of my system quite yet. I am longing to write more that causes my readers and me alike to grind the teeth and wince while allowing the passages to wander through the mind. Deep inside, we carry our anger and our resentments, our pain, and our suppressed memories, but we can never be totally rid of them. I like to explore the sickness of the mind and where it can take an individual. As a matter of fact, that is precisely what Melvin Frink, with all of his education in neuropsychology, should have been petrified of the most, but he was not.
So, I offer you 'Mindless,' and it is my desire that you get from reading this book what I got from writing it: The realization that insanity is really just a step away from each and every one of us. With that in mind, tread lightly, and enjoy the food for thought that I am offering to feed you.
