Dark Mind - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat; Think With Your Taste Buds; A Book and A Dish
She felt a sting at the back of her left arm and pressure against her back. Her first thought was a bee had stung her, but her vision melted into long vertical strips of disjointed puzzle pieces. Blinking hard, she tried to regain her perspective. Dizzying vertigo took hold of her balance, she fought the urge to vomit, swallowing hard as her body thrust into a tailspin. Staggering to stay in a vertical poise, she fought in her mind. Strong hands tucked under her arms and clasped across her chest, without anywhere else to go she fell into the arms of an unknown stranger.
Her name is Carolyn Sax and she is soon to become the first in a string of problems to intrude the quiet island of Kauai. Sergeant Lani Candena would be working the murders that are soon to take place, but due to an earlier event, he had the 'pleasure' of meeting Emily Stone and Rick Lopez as they rescued a kidnapped child.
Yes, Emily and Rick are back at it in full force, along with Jordan who comes after Emily's request to help them solve the murders being committed on the island. Each victim is brutally murdered and due to the evidence left, they appear to be used as sacrifices to some island legend.
This is my 3rd book to read in this series. The first Compulsion introduced me to Emily Stone. Dead Game became a permanent connection between Emily and Rick as well as an introducing the readers to Jordan. No, I can't get enough of either of the characters and the stories that involve them. These books have kept me on the edge through every turn of the page. I can't wait to read the next book in the series Dead Burn.
So if you're looking for a book that's hard to put down, pick up Dark Mind, but even though the books in this series can be read out of order, I suggest you start with the first. I could easily see these books being made into a TV series.
