About the Author

Prior to becoming a novelist, Gordon Snider wrote magazine articles and two business books: Winning Marketing Strategies and How To Become A Killer Competitor. When he moved to California’s Central Coast in 1999, he began writing fiction. His first novel, Sigourney’s Quest, was published in February 2006, and his second, The Separatist, in August 2007. Both were published by Helm Publishing and have received enthusiastic reviews. The Hypnotist is his third novel.

Before becoming a full-time author, Gordon spent thirty years as an independent marketing consultant and taught at four universities, most recently at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. His business background has given him considerable experience as a public speaker, and he has used that to his advantage in marketing his books. For his non-fiction Killer Competitor book, he gave seminars and lectures at conferences and conventions across the U.S. and Canada. For Sigourney’s Quest, he has offered a very popular slide show and talk on Tibet to book clubs, reading groups and professional organizations, including Rotary and Kiwanis. Other marketing efforts include successful book signings at independent and chain book stores, where his “meet and greet” approach generates considerable interest and sales.

Gordon Snider's "The Hypnotist" is a standalone thriller. I don't usually read in this genre, so I don't have much to compare it to. It creeps you out and makes you wonder about the power of hypnotism. The writing really flows, and you're able to read it very quickly, even though it is a full length novel. I like that you also get to see some things from the bad guy's point of view. Also liked the historical details and the setting a lot. Like if Criminal Minds were set in San Fran at the turn of the century!

Enjoyed the story and the historical context. The romance writing was weak, i would have liked more of a finish. It ended a little abruptly.
