Nicole Blake is a quiet girl, the type of person who is seldom noticed by anyone, until one day she discovers she has the unique ability to see images move on photographs. At first, she uses her ability to entertain friends at parties and work. Meanwhile, the police are unable to uncover a single clue in a series of unsolved murders. Seasoned detective Paul Hammond learns of Nicole’s ability, and enlists her help.
Carl Kadner, a rookie reporter with the local paper, takes it upon himself to investigate the murders as well. As he learns what it takes to be the kind of reporter he wants to be, Carl puts himself in danger for the sake of the story. What will it take to bring all of these people together to find the real reason people continue to disappear?

This book could be so much better without all of the errors. Just a couple of examples...dinner instead of diner, once instead if ounce.

This was a good read. Kept you guessing until the end. I did think it was strange how the author had several little bits about people being overweight.

Really fun read, but the book needed to be properly edited. lots of typos.Still, well worth the read, story moved at a great rate & was deeply engrossing. I recommend curling up with book and a cup of hot chocolate for a very nice time.

Proofreading was so bad I'd be ashamed to have this in print. Perhaps we should have a contest -- "how many errors can you find?"

So many misspellings and so much bad grammar made it almost impossible for me to continue to the end. The characters were not well developed and what was a good premise failed miserably.

Excellent, suspenseful story. Would be 5 stars with a good proofreader...hoping instead of hopping. sparing instead of sparring. passed instead of past, tons of subject-verb agreement issues andswitching back and forth between present and past tense in the same paragraph....Otherwise a great book.

I enjoyed the story very much but the author needs to hire a better proofreader.

Hard to follow at times. Still interesting and suspenseful. Not sure the author has the ability to see fully from a woman's point of view, so the ending is a bit sickening, to see what the main woman in the story does to the suspect without ever stopping. Not that many women would carry it that far unless they really are criminals. Leaves you in fear of what that lady will do to others in the future; she's already shown she can and has done so. There are a LOT of writing errors.

Unfortunately, I was unable to get very far in this novel. With the numerous missing commas and semi-colons, misspelled words, missing words or extra words, it was very difficult to get through. After struggling for 30 minutes to get through a handful of pages, I decided the story was not good enough to continue. Hopefully, this will undergo an edit and turn out to be a much better story.

This book is gruesomely good I always love reading book about psychic or the third eye. There is something about the story that is captivating to read and solved the problem. This book is gruesomely good. It makes you sick but be amazed. It is mind-blowing. It tackles situation where it happens in today's society. Evil people are around but their bad deeds will not stay forever. One day their evil deeds will get back to them. It is a sweet revenge for all the victims. The story sounds so real. It gives you goosebumps. I really enjoyed reading this book.

The Mind's Eye by Perry Prete is a psychological thriller that will grasp you from the start and keep your attention the whole way through. Detective Paul Hammond is on a search for a serial killer who is attacking women and mutilating their bodies. Nicole Baker is a woman with a special gift of prescience. Carl Kadner is a new journalist hungry for his first big story. Chance (or fate, depending on how you look a it) brings all three characters together in a suspenseful situation as they race against the clock to locate and stop the killer. This book reminded me of a twisted episode of the now defunct show, Medium, and Criminal Minds combined. The book starts off with the three main characters in disparate storylines. By the midpoint of the book, the reader is able to see how they will all come together to work the case. I was completely vested in learning about these characters and finding out who was responsible for these horrific crimes. Because of the content I consider this book very graphic. Prete does a great job offering descriptive scenes that the reader can truly picture. I think this is an indicator of a strong writer who can paint such vivid pictures with words. The story is complete and leaves the reader satisfied. I do have to admit, for a while, I was worried there might be a cliffhanger. However, the author kept me guessing till the very end but also provided a fulfilling conclusion. While the story was tight, there were some typos that probably could have been resolved with more vigorous editing. My main issue with this book was the language. The author uses a lot of expletives and vulgar language that I did not care for, and I don't know that it really added to the story. I think it would have been just as strong without it. Also, I suspect because Prete has worked in the healthcare industry, he offered some technical jargon that slowed me down a bit. These issues were relatively minor and did not stop me from appreciating the novel. Recommendation: If you're in search for a thriller that might have you looking over your shoulder as you walk to the car at night, I think you will enjoy this book. Be sure to pick up your copy today! Until next time ... Read on! I received a free print copy of The Mind's Eye from iRead Book Tours. Regardless of whether I purchase a book, borrow a book, or receive a book in exchange for review, my ultimate goal is to be honest, fair, and constructive. I hope you've found this review helpful.

After I got over the brutal murder, I couldn’t help but laugh at Paul as he faces his day. He is definitely not a morning person and I can relate. Neither am I. I like that he wears sneakers with his suits. Makes sense to me. I laugh along with his police partners as they poke fun at him, like only true friends can do. Nicole is just hanging out with her best friend, while the power is out due to a snowstorm, when her gift comes to light. HE is pure evil. How does he choose his victims? I’ll leave that up to you to find out, but it is not what your run of the mill serial killer would he. He is brutal, savage. He is a real sicko. Nicole’s ability is developing and she has no idea how intense it will get. She can feel the victim’s pain, live through their death. .I know she will get involved in the investigation and now I know how and why. When Paul and Nicole meet, something zaps between them. Big surprise, right? (said sarcastically) I don’t mind knowing some of the story beforehand,, just as long as the author throws in a surprise or two. I love the scene where Nicole is getting dressed for their date. Simone is helping her and she does need the help. I love her BFF. It’s easy to see how Carl, the reporter becomes involved. Investigating is not a nine to five, sit at your desk job. He goes out in the field. He wants to be a REAL reporter. He even dresses the part in a thrift store suit that makes me think of the film noir PI’s. I love the dark, black as night thrillers and this qualifies. The murders are gruesome, grisly, overkill, mutilations beyond your imagination. Then…comes the autopsy description that takes it to another level of upchucking ugliness. The more grossness Perry Prete feeds me, the hungrier I get. BUT, I do like fun and smiles with my murder mysteries and he does supply that too, along with dialogue and easy banter between the characters. Oh man, the hospital scene. Caught me by surprise, but Nicole is not afraid and I love it. NOW IT’S INTENSE…my thoughts run riot, I want to scream and yell, my heart beats a little faster, my eyes devour the words faster, the pace of the novel picks up, the suspense mounting. The ending…..FANTASTIC. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Mind’s Eye by Perry Prete

The Mind's Eye is quite a creepy read and my first book I have read by Perry Prete. Nicole Baker, a sweet and reserved young woman, who discovers a shocking talent of seeing events in motion by just looking at a single photograph. She soon becomes the life of the party when her friends find out her new talent. She, then is introduced to detective Paul Hammond. He asks her for help with unsolved murders that are connected. Nicole and Paul find they also need the local reporter, Carl Kadner, to help solve the case. Carl has been investigating the murders, as well. These three partners come into more danger than they would have ever expected. The Mind’s Eye to me is a surprisingly great book. This is one of those thrillers that takes a reader to some dark places. I never knew what was going to happen on the next page. I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride. I can not believe how it all came together in the end. This book definitely does not have a predictable plot. I finished it several days ago and still can not quit thinking about it. I am give The Mind’s Eye a well deserved five plus stars. It is another reason why readers should give indie published books a try. I do want to caution readers that it is not for everyone. There is some disturbing scenes and foul language that may offend some. I was not too bothered by it and kept on reading. I would love to see The Mind’s Eye on screen. It would be make a fabulous movie. I forward to more by Perry Prete in the future. Fabulous read! I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion .
