Nothing ruins a romantic evening like a brawl with lowlifes - especially when one of them later turns up dead and my date, Detective Isabella Cherabino, is the number one suspect. My history with the Atlanta PD on both sides of the law makes me an unreliable witness, so while Cherabino is suspended, I'm paying my bills by taking an FBI gig. I've been hired to play telepathic bodyguard for Tommy, the 10-year-old son of a superior court judge in Savannah presiding over the murder trial of a mob-connected mogul. After an attempt on the kid's life, the Feds believe he's been targeted by the businessman's "associates".Turns out, Tommy's a nascent telepath, so I'm trying to help him get a handle on his Ability. But it doesn't take a mind reader to see that there's something going on with this kids parents that's stressing him out more than a death threat...

I loved Daniel Thomas May's performance as always. His portrayal of Adam Ward's character like when he faces his problems and weaknesses with such strength and determination to overcome them that make me cheer for him when he succeeds! I like the ending when he and his love decide their future.
When he saved Tommy from his kidnapper.
I like Daniel Thomas May's performance. His voice is so soothing and calm. His portrayal of all the different characters are so easy to follow. He was superb in C J Cherryh's "Foreigner" series and I collect every book of that series. I will also be collecting this series for my library as well.
I am so glad that I did not listen to the review given by somebody who criticized the book. I purchased it despite the review because I like Danial Thomas May's narration and I was not disappointed. The book was well written and I will be looking forward to the next book which hopefully will be soon.
Another winner in the mind space series. Hughes ties up previous foreshadowing and introduces new characters and villains in an enjoyable way. Looking forward to Adam's next adventure!

I liked this story. Adam always feels guilty about everything that goes wrong within his circle of life. Cherabino continues to be an "all about me" kind of girl. When you get past those two things, it is a story you will want to finish. Daniel May does an excellent job narrating this book. Love how he portrays Adam.
I have not read the print version, so I can't really compare directly. I love audiobooks when the narrator is good. I enjoy Daniel Thomas May's performance very much. I always know which of the characters he voices is speaking.
The main character, Adam Ward, is my favorite. Sometimes I like him and sometimes I am aggravated with him. He is a walking contradiction at times. He is very intelligent but somewhat immature emotionally. It is the emotional aspect of his character that seems to get him into trouble. He makes some really dumb decisions at times, but recovers and learns from them. He takes responsibility for his actions, though, and does have ethics even though, at the height of his addiction, he violated many of them.
The scene in the motel room where Adam finds a vial of the drug he is addicted to was my favorite.
In this motel scene where he finds the drug that was left as a trap for him, he struggles with the desire to use the drug versus the desire to remain clean. It is a mark of his progress in character development that the struggles to stay clean have become shorter as he realizes he has more desire to keep the good things in his life than he wants to use the drug, although he will always have the cravings.
Adam is also better able to lessen some of his dependence on others and to function more independently. He handles his own money now and is not so dependent on Cherabino as a work partner and he is working better with others. He fell a long way from his Guild Professor status and was emotionally and intellectually damaged by the drug, but is slowly crawling out of the pit. He has made a lot of progress compared to where he was in Book One.
Reading and listening to books is a way of life for me I love to get out of my world and immerse myself in something new
I'm sorry but this book just did not have the same qualities the the other books had. The main characters' self doubt and inactivity combined with his whining made me want to just stop listening. He wasn't very good at anything including his "gift." The relationship factor was also missing in this story.
no new character development. 58mins in and I am wondering if I should continue. 4 books now and the character is still a weak addict. no backbone. the ending is predictable. The narrator is good but a bit dry. I thinking of dropping this series.
This book is slightly different. Adam is more on his own and has to fight his inner demons. Can't wait till the next one comes out
No. The problem was the boring repetitiveness
The book should have only be a hour long if the repetitive, feel-sorry-for-myself had been removed.
I've read all the mind space books, and I must say, this one was a bit whiny. I found myself a bit impatient with Adam's emotional whining and constant repetition / emotional "distress". I found myself wanting to skip what felt like a loop sometimes.
Overall though, a good book.
I always enjoy Daniel May's performances
Yes. Jason Statham or Brad Pitt
