Publisher's Summary

Government agencies fail to find terrorists threatening the United States with nuclear weapons. To remedy that, the new President forms a highly classified operation with an executive order. The Virtual ExtraSensory Perception Experimental Research project (VESPER) is created and housed in secret facilities under the JFK runways. VESPER leaders learn of South African "mindreachers" born several decades ago. Rumored to have the ability to read minds over great distances, no one knows their current locations. 

A teacher and pilot, Ana Masterson, is identified stateside as a minor telepath. She is hired by VESPER to find a mindreacher and teamed with elite warrior and former SEAL, Major Jon Coulter, USMC. Despising anyone psychic, Coulter reluctantly follows orders to protect Masterson and report to his superiors how telepathy may be used in combat. Supplied with the latest in espionage gadgets, including embedded nano-size satellite tracking transceivers, their search begins in Johannesburg, South Africa. Not wanting to be identified, every terrorist cell places Masterson and Coulter on their hit list.

Listeners will find it difficult to distinguish fact from fiction in this Indiana Jones style of friendly beginnings filled with memorable dueling characters, suspenseful changes in venue, exotic scenes, epic actions, and a chartbusting climax.

Mindreacher

I really liked the story concept, however it really dragged and the performance just wasn’t up to par so when you put both areas together no matter how much you like the concept it just was not really good.

Fascinating Read

We received this audiobook free of charge in return for an honest review.

The book “Mindreacher” was action packed from the very beginning to the very end.

The author’s knowledge of government agencies, Indochina and firearms makes this book come to life throughout the entire story.

Each character also comes to life with exceptional detail.

We are looking forward to the next book in this series.

Ray and Suzanne Mennega.

Not Good

The author writes in a very stereotypically offensive way when describing different cultures and people. I personally found it extremely offensive and couldn't take it anymore after almost 5 hours of offensive writing. The story has a lot of plot holes and various things just don't make sense. For ex, a woman was murdered in a highly secure secret government location underground, with camera's everywhere. However not only was there no concern about a member of their secret team being murdered, there was no mention of an investigation and it had no affect on their newly formed, extremely important secret mission, which includes Ana the telepath who is a high target. It's really ridiculous and unrealistic. How are they going to stop terrorists if they can't even find out who the murderer was in their own building?

The way it is written is in a very drawn out, over-explained, micro-managed way and takes way to long to get to different stages of the story, because of these long unnecessary descriptions. More editing would have been of value here. The narrators voice is too 'sweet' for this type of book and does not fit the action, violence and various characters he portrays. He is not really able to adapt his voice for the various characters which are spoken mostly in the same voice. There are also some issue's with the narrator repeating sentences he's already said which should have been edited out.

I was given this book for free of my own choosing and have voluntarily left this review.
