"A dead-on thriller for the decade...I can't imagine anyone reading this and not wanting more." --Thomas F. Monteleone, author of the NY Times bestseller, The Blood of the Lamb and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing a Novel
If you could hear the thoughts of every person for three blocks around-the regrets, rationalizations, commercial jingles, the lies that hide what they can't bear to think--how could you ever trust anyone? And if you could make them believe anything you wanted, how could you ever trust yourself?
Max Renn is a legend of the Soviet mind control program, a genetic experiment, the product of three generations of psychics bred by the state for their power. Before his first mission, the Soviet Union collapses and he disappears.
We meet him twenty years later in the Everglades, keeping as far from people as he can get, until his best friend-his only friend-is murdered and he is forced to assemble a team of people like him to fight the international conspiracy behind the murder.
"Ted Krever has been a writer to watch, now he's a writer to read. Do not miss MINDBENDERS." -F. Paul Wilson, author of the NY Times bestseller The Keep and the Repairman Jack novels.
"Ted Krever is a great storyteller, but more importantly, the stories he creates and writes are ones that I want to read. In this ADD era, where even e-mails are considered too long, Ted's work commands my attention. It is definitely worthy of yours too." -David Leaf, biographer and award-winning writer/director/producer of such films as "The Night James Brown Saved Boston, "The U.S. Vs. John Lennon" and "BEAUTIFUL DREAMER: Brian Wilson & The Story of SMiLE."
About the Author
Ted Krever watched the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, went to Woodstock (the good one), and graduated Sarah Lawrence College with a useless degree in creative writing. He spent the next few decades in media journalism, at ABC News on the magazine show Day One with Forrest Sawyer and the Barbara Walters Interviews of a Lifetime series, as General Manager of BNNtv, a documentary production company, creating programs for CNN, A&E, Court TV, CBS, MTV News, Discovery People and CBS/48 Hours, and as VP/Production of a short-lived dotcom, followed swiftly by nine months of unemployment. Ted now writes novels and sells mattresses in Staten Island NY, a job which registers at a loathsome -98 on the Cosmopolitan Eligible Male Job-Status Guide. Ted is happily divorced, purports to be a good kisser and hopes for world peace. He was once accused of attempting to blow up Ethel Kennedy with a Super-8 projector.
