"Frank does an amazing job"
-San Diego Book Review
"A cocktail of Deon Meyer and The Bourne Identity mixed with a dash of James Bond"
"Unlike any book you've ever read ... if you've read Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, you're already aware of Noetic Science. Frank's approach covers fresh ground"
"A great, compelling mystery ... a fast paced adventure full of intrigue and political suspense that keeps you guessing until the last page."
From the Author
Don't let anyone or anything stand in the way of you achieving your dreams.
Anyone who tells you that you can't achieve your dreams is lying. Everyone who has ever achieved something started off with a thought, a vision or a dream. As Nelson Mandela once said, "It always seems impossible until it's done".
It was my childhood dream to write a novel and here I am writing a message to you, the potential readers of my debut book.
Sure, real life happens. The process of writing my book (in the evenings, after my regular job) took longer than I planned. We all have bills to pay and commitments to honor.
While writing my book I got married and, three kids later, finally finished what I had set out to do.
So let me formally introduce myself to you. Hello, I'm Bevan Frank and I'm the author of the thriller, The Mind of God.
My book contains many active ingredients in the thriller genre mix - murder, theft, terrorism, technology and characters who need to make sense of what is going on and deal with what is being thrown at them.
The storyline is pure fiction, although it does look at the real and fascinating concept of global consciousness (how the minds of humans might be more connected than we perhaps realize). Without wanting to give too much away, my novel also revisits real global events such as 9/11 and Princess Diana's funeral.
My book is set mostly in Cape Town, the beautiful city in the Western Cape province of South Africa, where I grew up. I wanted to expose readers to this magnificent part of the world and hope it will encourage people to go visit! (A few years ago the New York Times published an article entitled "52 places to go in 2014". Cape Town was placed at number one!)
Thanks for taking the time to read my message.
To those of you who have said you would love to read my book but don't have time to read books, hopefully the day will come when I can say to you "Check out the movie"!
To those of you who have asked if I'll be writing another book, my answer is yes, absolutely! I'm already working on my second thriller. Watch this space!
But for now, I only have one thing left to say...happy reading!
Until we meet again.

I’ll start right off with my issues with the book — it was just a bit slow for me. Don’t get me wrong, there is A LOT of thriller-action in this, and it is incredibly well written. My problem is that the scenes seemed to take to long to get to. And once we were there, they were muddled with mundane details about the characters or the plot. Sometimes when the action hits, you just have to let it hit.
But, on to the good. I can definitely see the potential in Frank’s writing. A lot of this book had me thinking about Ludlum’s books that my dad was always reading. Ludlum knew how to get you wrapped around his finger — Bevan Frank has the capabilities to do the same.
The Mind of God is a bit of a weird title for me. I get the meaning behind it but I don’t know if it portrays the terrorism/international thriller vibe that he wanted. The cover DOES give some of that away. Also on the cover — wow is it gorgeous. That blue just pops!
The main characters were all believable, which in a thriller is surprising. Sometimes, you have one “I can’t believe that happened” (think Jason Bourne, even though he was super well trained, he still does stuff that is shocking). But the plotline and the thought that went into that is the real star here. The story, without giving much away was awesome. The background on the main plotline was incredibly well thought out and I’m intrigued to see what else Frank has in store for his next novels.
The setting was unique too. I haven’t read too many books that take place in South Africa, and it was a really nice change of pace from the typical DC Thriller.
Bevan Frank definitely could be the next “big name” in International Thrillers.
The kidnapped scientists' estranged daughter and a visiting friend are searching for her missing father, dodging not only criminals who believe they have the key to opening the Pandora's box, but also law enforcement officials wanting to arrest them for murders they didn't commit.
