Book Description

A breathtaking new thriller about a stunning future that is rapidly approaching. From the New York Times bestselling author of WIRED.

"Richards is a tremendous new talent." --Stephen Coonts, 17-time New York Times bestselling author of Pirate Alley

When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster--bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head--he knows things are bad. But they're about to get far worse. Because he's being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?

As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights--or bring about its total collapse.

Extrapolated from actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind's Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

"Recalls the best of Michael Crichton. A keep-you-up-all-night thriller. Intense action, mind-blowing concepts, & breathtaking twists. Enjoy the ride." --Boyd Morrison, bestselling author of The Vault, on WIRED.

"Will keep you turning the pages all night long." --Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Impact, on The Cure.
     
Be sure to read Richards's newest mind-blowing thriller, Quantum Lens, coming October first, 2014!

There was nothing I didn't like about this book. It was truly amazing. Intriguing, engaging, and very entertaining, Mind's Eye captured my attention totally and completely in a way that is true testament to the talent--the gift--that this author possesses. It's one of those books that you don't want to put down, no matter what. Dinner? What's that? Giving the kids a bath? Do they really need one? I found myself literally holding my breath several times as Mr. Richards catapulted me from one scene to the next in a truly fascinating ride.

Nick, the main character, very quickly gained my allegiance and my heart. He was the perfect combination of bravery and senstivity. After waking up in a dumpster, hurt, confused, and even doubting his own sanity at times, he managed to keep ahold of his integrity while fighting for his own life, in a situation completely out of his control and not of his own making. A truly good man, he is forced to make choices that no one should have to make, as he struggles to survive, and prevent the unspeakable.

The secondary characters were just as well-written. They are likable and relatable--or despicable, depending on whom you are referring to.

The subject matter is one that, to me personally, is very scary, but with technology the way it is today, also believable. Perhaps that is why it is so frightening....

Some of my favorite authors are John Grisham, Dean Koontz, and Nicholas Sparks, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed this book just as much as I have some of my favorites by the above-mentioned.

Honestly, I would give this book more than five stars, if I could. Douglas E. Richards' books will definitely be on my to-read list from now on.

Well done, Mr. Richards, and keep them coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars A clear and thoughtful action packed thriller! January 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been reading Mr Richards' work for several years, and I really think this is his best book ever. The subject matter is right on the edge of what's happening now in the computer labs of the world, mind-directed web surfing. Doug digs deeper than just techno-thriller, though. His characters explorations of the ethical, political, and emotional ramifications of the new technologies are deep and insightful. There's action, romance, mystery, heroes, villains, and lots of really interesting people in this book.

I rate it five stars, and I think he's got another NY Times best seller on his hands.

Hey folks! Here is a new best selling author that you may not have even heard of yet. I discovered Douglas E. Richards several months ago and have become a raging fan! Richards rates up there with my other favorite authors like Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Jack DuBrul, Isaac Asimov, and Clive Cussler!

About Mind's Eye -

Remind me to never play chess with Richard's as he would most likely beat me like a blanket hung out to dry. This book is one cool chess move after another, with some really inventive moves thrown in! I never could see the end game, and that kept me turning every page as fast as possible.

I should have kept track of the body count at least. But let's just say it's over 27. But more impressive are the escapes from bodily harm! The main character, Hall, can read minds and think fast. It was truly amazing how Richards introduces Hall's amazing talents. From waking up in a dumpster with amnesia, to finding a safe house in a ritzy neighborhood (for free), Hall has some roller coaster moments that would have freaked anyone right the hell out!

I did manage to figure out some of the plot twists, but I must have done it telepathically, because otherwise, I am not usually that clever. Richards has a way of dropping clues that help, not hinder the reader.

If you are looking for a great beach read or even just a good, fast, fun book, then this is it! Buy it today and you'll be hooked on the first page, maybe even the first paragraph!

Enjoy,
Austinstar

5.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE! January 23, 2014
By Morgan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Consider yourself warned. I downloaded this book, and nothing, and I do mean absolutely nothing, on my "To Do" list got done that day. I spent the whole day reading this book because I was unable to put it down. There should be required warnings on books this good. People innocently start reading, and before the first page is read, they've become hopelessly addicted. Consider yourself warned. This is a wonderfully entertaining book, but devastating on your productivity.

I've read more books than I care to say, and a many of them were great! But this book was so tense, deep, twisted, clever and such a nail biting thriller right to the end, that I can actually say that it is in a class by itself!! Never even read a book like it (and I've read a lot of Si-Fi in my life) because of the different angles at which it comes to you at times. Can't even really call parts of it Si-Fi, because some of it is merely futuristic. Bill Gates was talking about some of this applications 10 years ago. I highly recomend this book for anyone and everyone with a strong heart and a gusto for thrills, adventure into new areas, and trickery that makes Houdini look like a simpleton!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, as always!! January 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I happened upon "Wired" for free via Amazon Prime a few months back, was quickly hooked, and this was my 5th book I've read by the author. Need I say more?

His books are well constructed, seamlessly take you on a thriller of a ride. The technical and technological details are great, and I've been compelled to continue devouring the books voraciously once started, just to see where they're going next.

Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
