Book Description

Previously published under the title "Charcot's Genius".

From Kirkus Reviews
"A tense psychological thriller about the human mind...
viceral and shocking...  readers will struggle to know who to root for in this complex, engaging thriller.
A refreshing change from the usual madman-turned-murderer storyline."

Melissa Hartman has genius locked inside of her, and so do you. The question is: what kind of genius? The awesome potential of the human mind is an incredible thing, but it is also a very dangerous thing. 

After several years of neurology research on autistics and children, Dartmouth psychology professor Frederick Carlisle has made a startling discovery. With a custom-made device and a simple set of steps, he can unlock fantastic mental abilities in his test subjects. But the brain is a delicate, complicated piece of equipment, and side-effects are inevitable; when one part of the brain ramps up, another will inevitably shut down...

Charcot's Genius is part one of the Great Minds series. It is the story of two very different people: an asylum inmate who is haunted by memories of the murder they say he committed, and a self-possessed first-year Dartmouth student who is trying to escape a small town and a destructive father. Both grapple with the effects of Professor Carlisle's treatment, and both discover powers of thought they never imagined possible. But while our Dartmouth first-year simply hopes to lead a normal life, the asylum inmate is out for revenge. He blames Carlisle for his condition and his imprisonment, and soon he will make his return to the Dartmouth campus.

Professor Carlisle has some explaining to do.

To begin with, this is a great story. All else fails if this basic requirement is not met.

You'll find yourself having four/five/more trains of thought going through your mind, trying to figure out what is happening and how all these threads might come together. I was too enthralled in what was going on at the moment to even think about the ending until the last chapter.

I recommend this book to those who like twisty psychological novels that make you think . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars a little confusing October 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The beginning of the book was difficult for me to follow as it shifted back and forth between Kline's story and Melissa's. But once it got moving (Melissa at 18) it started to come together. There were many twists and turns after this point and I was glad I had stayed with it. Parts of the ending were sad, but the struggle of the main characters -- Melissa and her friends-- made for interesting reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best villain since Hannibal Lecter! May 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Seldom does one come across a villain they want to root for, someone intelligent, magnetic, and totally psychotic. Dr. Nathan Kline is that villain and he is but one of the great characters in Charcot's Genius; you will also find flawless writing, great characterization, and a twisting plot that will keep you surprised until the end. If you haven't yet read M.C. Soutter's other book in the Great Minds Thriller series (Undetectable), I also recommend it highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great work November 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just finished this one after starting with the 'Undetectable' volume in the series. There's no problem in reading those two of of sequence.
There's a bit of flashback/flashforward in the time flow, but nothing that prevents an obstacle. There's still the surprise about how things do actually turn out in the end. Actually a couple of surprises.
Looking forward to the next in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good science fiction/crime story January 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The science fiction element adds a nice touch to a well-written, enjoyable and captivating crime story. The ending suggests that there could be a sequal involving the two scientists and the nice young student. I am particularly inquisitive to know what plans old Nathan might have up his sleeve!

Great story, great characters. The girl (Melissa) is awesome, obviously. But I was also rooting for the supposed bad guy most of the time. I read a lot of thrillers but I've never gone through one this quickly.

Untapped (Great Minds Thriller)
This book starts of a little slow and confusing. But don't give up. About 50% in it gets really good. The book is not for the squeamish. But it is an exciting character driven page turner, with lot of twists and turns. It is about murder, insanity, scientific experiments, good and evil. And you will never guess the ending.
