Whole World Blind would make a fantastic movie - along the lines of Silence of the Lambs!

When the human mind doesn't function properly, a psychiatrist should be the best equipped to deal with the situation... shouldn't they? "Whole World Blind" is a riveting novel of Jack Carson, a psychiatrist pitted against a murderous mad man who is driven to turn Carson into someone just like him by destroying his life. "Whole World Blind" is a highly entertaining read and a top pick.

NOTE: if I could, I would give this 4.5 stars

Storyline:

Wow. Really great. If you are into psychological thrillers you should read this book. There have been many psych. thrillers written as of late, but this one has structure and substance. You can see the flow of events and, since the book takes place in the authors back yard, there is credibility to the work. While this is a work of fiction, the story reads like true life.
Story Characters:

This was pretty intense. You felt real pain when reading what Dr. Jack Carson had to go through and how he dealt with each test that was thrown at him. You find yourself caring not only about him, but wanting to get in the head of the killer and understand their point of view and reasons for his actions. Michael Mefford did a great job in making the characters of his book not only important but not one of them was a throw-away.

Writing Style:

I was hooked from the first page. While it's no surprise I am a huge fan of psych thrillers, it's rare to find one that isn't forced or unrealistic. Mr. Mefford has managed to write in a way that we could be reading an article in tomorrow's paper about a real psychopath. The pacing was great and the actual writing was fluid.

Editing Style:

Really nice work. Nothing jumped out at me.

Overall Thoughts:

If you like psychological thrillers, this is a must read. I hope to be seeing more from this author.

When I was little, I would not go down a dark and unlit hallway in our home to get to my bedroom. This book made me go back in time and not want to go into any unlit area. I could not put this book down once I got started with it. It is a fast read and really grips your attention. It is fun to read books where the author is familiar with the area that the story is set in. This author is comparable (if not better in my opinion) to some of the best-selling mystery/suspense authors. Looking forward to his next book. It can't be written fast enough.

If you are a humane being this book is a must read. The author's obvious expertise in pyschiatry enables him to create a shocking but all too believable suspense triller in which the protagonist shows us how the human mind can become so damaged. You won't be able to put it down. Bravo!

This was a quick, but thrilling read! Whole World Blind would make a fantastic movie - along the lines of Silence of the Lambs! As I read, I could see the greusome scenes playing out. I hope to see more from Mr. Mefford.
