This review is from: Murder on The Mind (The Jeff Resnick Mystery Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Very rarely am I drawn to books that have a plot based on a protagonist experiencing the paranormal. In the case of MURDER ON THE MIND by L. L. Bartlett I made an exception to my "I don't read them" rule and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the story of Jeff Resnick and his filthy rich half brother Richard. The brothers rediscover each other following a violent mugging that has left insurance investigator Jeff, unemployed, broke and virtually homeless but possessing an unnerving sixth sense concerning the murder of a local banker named Sumner.
Having been previously excised from the family by his now deceased banshee like Grandmother, Jeff is invited back to the family digs in Buffalo,NY by his brother. It is here that Jeff's newfound "gift" kicks into high gear and he begins "seeing" not only a myriad of clues concerning the bankers bloody demise but also manages to tune in on some unnerving and heretofore unknown family secrets.
The entire cast of characters ranging from Richards girlfriend Brenda, to Jeff's love interest Maggie to Sophie Levin, the Polish baker Jeff is allowed to visit only at night all do their part to make this a most enjoyable read.(And a most pleasant suprise for this nay-sayer).
MURDER ON THE MIND should appeal to a large audience since it is a cozy complete with murder, mayhem, and romance as well as two brothers you can cheer for coupled with some excursions into psychic phenomenon.
