Book Description


Freelancing for the Atlanta PD isn’t exactly a secure career; my job’s been on the line almost as much as my life. But it’s a paycheck, and it keeps me from falling back into the drug habit. Plus, things are looking up with my sometimes-partner, Cherabino, even if she is still simmering over the telepathic Link I created by accident.

When my ex, Kara, shows up begging for my help, I find myself heading to the last place I ever expected to set foot in again—Guild headquarters—to investigate the death of her uncle. Joining that group was a bad idea the first time. Going back when I’m unwanted is downright dangerous.

Luckily, the Guild needs me more than they’re willing to admit. Kara’s uncle was acting strange before he died—crazy strange. In fact, his madness seems to be slowly spreading through the Guild. And when an army of powerful telepaths loses their marbles, suddenly it’s a game of life or death.…

    4.0 out of 5 stars Telepathic ability after the Tech War. 7 April 2014
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I really enjoy these books in the Mindspace Investigations series by Alex Hughes. She has created a world of the future, after the Tech War, which has advanced in time but definitely not in technology. Nobody trusts technology since the misuse of that is what caused the war in the first place. However, human nature being what it is there will always be those who illegally invent and sell that technology. So you get a situation of having anti-gravity vehicles for road transport alongside the situation of the DeKalb Police Department sharing one computer among many departments. A computer geek who is feared because of his knowledge of computers and yet he had the courage to have a brain implant to better link him with the computer at the risk of contracting the same virus which killed so many during the war. Characters are divided between the normals and those with ability, and they don't trust each other one little bit. Adam Ward is a Seventh Level telepath who has been kicked out of the Guild because of a drug problem. Never mind that it was the Guild itself that developed the drug and then allowed him to experiment with it. Now he has a history of drug abuse and a criminal conviction in the world of the normals. That doesn't stop the police department from using his talents to interview criminal suspects. It's hard to lie to someone who has the natural ability to detect all kinds of cues given off by humans. In this story Adam's ex-fiancé, Kara, has called to say her uncle has died and his death is being treated as a suicide. Kara believes he was murdered and she wants Adam to come back to the Guild compound to prove how her uncle died. Never mind that contagious madness is rumored to be infecting those who use mind-to-mind contact. Read more ›

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic entry 1 April 2014
    By Brandon - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This was another superb entry in the Mindspace series. I honestly have nothing bad to say about it, I downloaded the book at 1:30am and read till I finished at 5:40am I couldn't help myself, this series is just that good. But you already know that if you're this far ahead.

    However if your recommendations showed this to you or you stumbled across it, go and start at the beginning with Clean. And buckle up, you're in for one phenomenal ride.

    3.0 out of 5 stars A Punching Bag 9 Jun. 2014
    By Robert I. Katz - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    It is a tribute to the author's skill that I have now read all three books in this series, despite the enormous improbabilities in the way the protagonist is treated by his contemporaries and in the way that he relates to the world.

    Adam Ward was formerly one of the Guild's foremost telepaths, before becoming addicted to an experimental drug and being kicked out of the Guild. He now works for the Atlanta police department as an "interviewer." Despite having an unparallelled record of success, Adam is routinely belittled, insulted, humiliated and even assaulted by his colleagues. At the end of the first book, he saved the world from an artificially enhanced telepathic superman. One might have thought that this would have given him some credibility, but nope, when the second one starts, he is still working on sufferance, still barely tolerated, still routinely mistreated and abused. At the end of the second one, he saves the World from a plot to re-introduce some ancient, forbidden technology that could have easily resulted in the destruction of civilization. Does this help? Not really. At the beginning of this book, Adam is once again everybody's punching bag. He gets a frantic call from his former fiancee, a high ranking Guild member. He reluctantly responds, whereupon he is assaulted, arrested, threatened and then blackmailed into doing the investigation that he had already agreed to do.

    None of this makes a lot of sense. I have been a manager for many years and if I had treated an employee the way Adam is treated, I would have been hit with about 50 claims of hostile work environment and unfair labor practice. Adam is the sort of obviously valuable resource that any police department would get down on their knees and thank God for.

    Still, the World that the author creates is interesting and well thought out. Adam is an attractive protagonist and one can't help but root for him. I'll probably buy the next one, but I'm just hoping that Adam learns to punch back. That, I would enjoy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I have become a very big fan of this series. 5 May 2014
    By Dusty Wade - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    If you've read the previous books in this series you'll love this one. If you haven't read Clean and Sharp, you should back up and hit those first. I won't be posting any spoilers in this review, and I won't go into great detail about the book.

    Adam's character is growing wonderfully. I have enjoyed seeing him grow from being very unsocial and "flat" in Clean, to highly animated in this book. Some people have seen that as a negative, I see it two ways:

    1. A young author who is growing her craft as she writes.
    2. It goes along well with his addiction. Addiction steals your humanity. It rules your life. You can see that in Adam. Addiction was his identity, every day, every page of each book he's fighting to take his life back from his addiction. It's beautifully tragic.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing read. 29 Jun. 2014
    By Red Apple Reader - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I enjoyed MARKED: A MINDSPACE INVESTIGATIONS NOVEL by Alex C. Hughes. I've also read the first two full-length novels in this series and a "between the books" short. Something about this science-fiction, futuristic world captivates me. The villains are strong, evil, and illustrate how hard our hero, Adam Ward, has to work to save not only himself but the world as he knows it. Against his better judgment, against his will, Adam is sucked into solving another problem for the Guild...and it's so well motivated, I can believe he'd get involved in the first place.

    The story here is both separate and concluded (with this book's villain and big, bad problem) and also part of a series...we see the romance between Adam and Detective Isabella Cherabino further develop in this book, learn even more about Adam's past with the Guild, and many of the story threads from books 1 and 2 are still present...secondary characters, circumstances with Adam's freelance employment with the DeKalb County Police Dept., etc.

    I've enjoyed this series enough to want to keep buying every full-length novel and short that comes out. Recommended to fans of paranormal fiction, science fiction, and mysteries.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Telepathic Crime Detection 21 Jun. 2014
    By WelpeWL - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This is a very good, relatively new series about a strong telepath who has stumbled in his life and is doing his best to make things right and carry on. Hughes is a talented writer and I expect that I will buy most anything she writes for the forseeable future. I recommend the series to anyone who likes good writing and powered characters. Start at the beginning, the whole story is worth it.
