Rabbit Trick: A Mindspace Investigations Short Story by Alex C Hughes

The first short story in the Mindspace Investigations universe featuring telepathic detective Adam Ward
- PLUS two bonus short stories in other worlds.


When the cops call me in the middle of the night, I know it's bad. One of their own is dead, strangled in her car by a professional killer, and it's up to me, telepath consultant extraordinaire, to pull the rabbit out of my hat and solve the case. Only this time I'm not so sure I can.

Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino is breathing down my neck. The dead cop's partner is too. Here's the bad news. Turns out the woman's five-year-old was in the car when she got murdered. Here's the worst news. No one can find that kid.

This book contains a short story that goes along with the mind space series and two additional short stories. The mind space was a nice read as short stories goes and I liked that it showed that the protagonist has ethics with his telapathic powers. The story I enjoyed the most though was, "Inky Black Sea". I could see the author turning this story into a good series based on the adventres of the retired sea captain and the "woman creature". Now that is a series I would look forward to reading. In all short quick enjoyable read. I seldom write a review, only if something new or really interesting grabs my attention. So many books these days are basic carbon copies of each other, the names are changed but most are so alike that the plots are pure routine. This book was intesting, as I am finding the mind space series. Cudos to the author for having unique plots, and ideas for the basis of her stories. I hope she continues with the good work so I can have stories to look forward to reading.

I’m thoroughly invested in the Mindspace Investigations series. “Rabbit Trick” is a great introduction to the series because it tells you everything you need to know – that the protagonist is a telepath with a drug addiction who is three years clean and works for the Atlanta police. That he has more than a work-appropriate attachment to his grumpy partner, Detective Isabella Cherabino. That his value as an interviewer and investigator comes from both his natural curiosity and what he can “see” and sense with his telepathy. And that he feels his position in the department, and maybe in the world, is tenuous at best. This novella also includes two of Hughes’s short-SHORT stories, unrelated to the Mindspace series. Hughes really excels at fascinating shorts, so be sure to check them out. The Mindspace Investigation series is one of my top favorites, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

A fun tide-me-over for Mindspace fans. RABBIT TRICK: A Mindspace Investigations Short Story by Alex Hughes is a fun tide-me-over for Mindspace fans. I found this short story to be aptly named, an enjoyable read, and all-inclusive. Hughes did a terrific job introducing this story's circumstances and wrapping it all up in very few pages. While I believe it does stand alone, it would be even more enjoyable for those who have read at least the first Mindspace novel (CLEAN). Kudos to the author.
