Publisher's Summary

Nick Hall returns in a riveting standalone thriller, set in a stunning future that is rapidly approaching. From the New York Times best-selling author whose books have been downloaded over a million times.

Nick Hall has revolutionary electronics implanted in his brain that allow him to read minds - including thoughts, memories, and even intent. He can know the passwords, future strategies, and innermost secrets of anyone he chooses, making him the most formidable man alive. But his status as the only mind reader in the world is about to change...

Soon, Hall is fighting for his life as he races to stop an unimaginably despicable terror plot. But his problems are only beginning. Because when a member of his inner circle betrays him, and the secret to mind reading leaks out, he is forced to wage war against a merciless mind reader of nearly unequaled brilliance. One who will stop at nothing to kill Hall, his colleagues, and the woman he loves. And one who is intent on ushering in a dramatic transformation of the human species - even at the cost of billions of lives.

Based on actual research on computer-assisted mind reading, Mind War is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

Hokey narrator style

This story was definitely thought-provoking and interesting, but the narrator's hokey delivery style ruined it for me. Won't listen to another with that narrator.

Thought-provoking reading

I have truly enjoyed each of the Nick Hall books. They stretch my imagination and make me really think. I like the recap at the end of what is real and what is still just imagination. Nick is a likable, if unlikely hero. Victor is a nemesis worthy of respect, despite his flawed outlook. I love that the ending leaves just enough loose ends to leave me eager for a next installment in the series, without feeling as though I was left hanging. Overall, this is an entertaining series.

Third Entry Holds True to Quality and Adventure

Nick Call and the Crew of TMT are back at saving the world again and doing a swell job of it! Richards opens story options for the future by introducing 2 new mind readers: one bad; and one neutral. Look out upcoming books in the series, this is getting interesting!

I did enjoy this book, but not as much as the first two simply because so much of it took place outside our core characters either using old bad guys or creating the new ones. Still, I understand the need for this as a method of paving the way for upcoming sequels.

Get the Audio version if you can! It's fun.

Another mind-blowing read

This book concludes in a way that suggests there might be a book 4 in the series. But given how long it has been since this edition was released, that appears questionable. Either way, this was a fantastic addition to the series. If we only get a trilogy, it's a fantastic set of books that I'm happy to recommend to any even remotely interested in the summary provided on Amazon. Each book delivers the goods.

Series continues with great writting and action

This series is best taken in order. Some of the plot is more deus ex machina situations, but still wortht the time.

A Bit Too Predictable

I love Douglas E. Richards, but found this book (third in it's series) predictable throughout.

Narration Failed

This was the worst narration I have encountered in an audio book! I am amazed that this narrator has done so many books. His character voices were terrible and did not fit the story at all. The book was very enjoyable, but I will make a point to check the narrator before I buy another audio book to make sure it isn’t this one. One reviewer called it “hokie”; he or she was being kind.

Wow just wow

Well, the third outing for Nick Hall was an action packed thrill ride, taking me up and down with the twists and turns of this literary rollercoaster. As always Doug has built his characters in 4 dimensions, developed not just in space but over time, with personalities that just get under your skin. His villains are complex and detestable, his heroes are ... well, heroic, and his protagonists are complicated and likeable. And his science is so on point that you will believe that this tech is available now, and because he always explains at the end of every book about his research, you the reader know that he has put in the time to make things as accurate and thought provoking as possible whilst telling great stories. Thank you once again Doug and well done!!!
