Editorial Reviews

Review

I quickly got wrapped up in the story as the pages flew past and I became engrossed in Jeff's discoveries. Especially when his discoveries led to unveiling secrets from Richard's past and his own traumatic childhood.

Murder on the Mind was a great debut in this suspenseful series. With a paranormal twist to it that kept me hooked, I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
--Cozy Mystery Book Reviews

"A high-powered drama filled with interesting characters that add dimension to a tightly paced story with a good kick at the end."
-- RT Book Reviews

"This was a thoroughly entertaining mystery with a bit of the paranormal throughout. Not only was the mystery interesting, but so was the development of the relationship between the half-brothers. The author did a wonderful job of walking the two through their problems with one another. I highly recommended this book and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series."

About the Author

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett's pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it's her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, the Tales of Telenia adventure-fantasy saga, and now the Lotus Bay Mysteries, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

I was hooked before the end of the first chapter of Murder on the Mind. Who is Jeff Resnick and why is he having visions of a deer hunt? Then, after being visciously mugged, he wakes up with more issues than he had while he was just unemployed and down-on-his-luck. His half-brother takes him to Buffalo to recuperate. Here L.L. Bartlett add layers to the mystery surrounding Jeff. However, it wasn't just the visions that I wanted to know about; I wanted to know about the brothers and why they seemed so estranged. Where was the rest of Jeff's family? I wanted to know about Richard, the half-brother and Brenda, his girlfriend. Jeff seems to know as little about Richard as he does himself. Bartlett manages to weave a great mystery with equally great characterizations. Every page turned takes you deeper into the visions that Jeff has, the murder(s) and his strained relationships. When I finished 'Murder on the Mind' I wanted more. I anxiously await more Jeff Resnick mysteries.

L.L. Bartlett's MURDER ON THE MIND is an exceptional debut mystery that adds a paranormal element to the enjoyment of unraveling traditional investigative techniques. Told in the first person through the eyes of a psychic sleuth, or perhaps brain damaged, MURDER ON THE MIND heightens the level of suspense as each new clue or vision arises.

A mugging in Manhattan, leaves former insurance investigator Jeff Resnick with broken bones and a fractured skull --- and completely dependent on his rich estranged half brother Dr. Richard Alpert and his girlfriend Brenda Stanley. Visions of a hunt and and a hunter stalking his deer prey terrify Jeff. The doctors diagnose brain damage. Days later, a local banker is found dead, his murder eerily similar to the details of Jeff's nightmares. Jeff believes the attack has left him with a sixth sense, a psychic ability to see murder before the event. Jeff uses his visions and his investigative skills to try to solve the crime but as he gets closer to the killer, danger arises from all corners. Will the police trust his revelations are due to psychic visions or attribute his knowledge to a more nefarious means? As Jeff becomes closer to his half brother, dangerous past secrets emerge touching his traumatic childhood. Somewhere danger lurks and Jeff must work hard and fast if he doesn't want to become a victim to one of the dark secrets he uncovers.

L.L. Bartlett writes a magnificent mystery! MURDER ON THE MIND mixes an eerie, psychic paranormal element with an investigative hunt for clues and facts, never sacrificing the mystery to an easy resolution. Intriguing twists keep the reader poised at ever page.

I thought this book was pretty good. I liked the writing style and the characters were down to earth and believable. I appreciated the subtle complexity of the relationships between the main characters, which was developed in such a way that it added a little bit of drama, but was still relatable. The only thing that I didn't love about this book was, well, the premise. I feel like the whole idea of the protagonist having "visions" to help solve a crime is both a little overdone and is somewhat of a cop out. The plot was entirely propelled by the main character having aptly timed visions that spelled out all the necessary clues needed that (surprise!) the cops don't take seriously. I feel that the book might have been better if the author had taken the time to tie up loose ends at the end, including what happened to the kid, why he had a connection with the kid, etc. However, overall I thought that the book was well written and I enjoyed the characters immensely.

First of all, this book had no mystery or suspense to it at all. The killer was revealed early on and there were no twists or turns as I was hoping. There were also so many grammatical and formatting errors it was extremely distracting. This was hands down the most bland and uneventful book I've ever read.

Murder on the Mind, by L.L. Bartlett, is a remarkable story that pulls the reader in with subtle foreshadowing and rich character development. I appreciated the clarity of the writing, finding it moved the story along at a very quick pace, making it hard to put the book down until I had devoured the last page. L.L. Bartlett writes with skill, guiding the reader along Jeffrey Resnick's path as he explores a new found talent which forces him to help in solving crimes, and while he tries to convince everyone, including himself, that this talent is indeed something to trust. L.L. Bartlett weaves a story about psychic abilities into something that will leave the reader wanting more. Often, books with psychic phenomena in their plot line leave a great deal to be desired, but in Murder on the Mind, L.L. Bartlett provides solid action and intriguing twists and turns that are nothing but well executed. This was a book I thought about and chewed over for days after finishing it, and to me, that means it was an excellent story. I do hope this is the beginning of a long series following Resnick and his family, as I was left with a lot of interesting questions!
