My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mind Over Murder is the next instalment in the Jake Roberts detective thrillers. It follows five years on from “After The Evil” where we met serial killer Lori Powers. Lori has finally been captured and is being returned from Europe by Interpol ready for her trial. Jake is part of the party at Atlanta airport who are meeting Lori.
Lori has a celebrity following of her case, she’s top of the news broadcasts and a book has even been made of her life. A beautiful woman she causes many men’s heads to turn.
Jared Hamilton has a copy of Lori’s book. He’s a hi-tec savvy genius, a loner, he’s a hacker in his own class and a rule unto himself. With no need for money, no need to work, he craves a life of crime like an adrenalin junky. Well aware that a computer virus could have more power than a nuclear weapon, there are few security systems that Jared cannot breach. Yet even this power is nothing compared to how he feels about murder. Inspired by Lori Powers, Jared plans five murders with one big ultimate death.
A good thriller, I wasn’t sure how the story was going to pan out with Lori however there is enough backstory if you haven’t read the previous book to set the scene. A good pace which kept me interested to the end and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
