Synopsis To catch a notorious serial killer known as The Hacker, Detective Ian Rivers puts to work his famed psychic abilities to track him down. From a young age, Rivers has been able to see through the eyes of murderers as he observes them committing their crimes from within his own dreams. In his most challenging case yet, Rivers finds that the serial killer he is tracking down can talk back to him in his dreams. As much as the dreams can aide Rivers and the case, The Hacker also prospers from the strange gift and is able to use it to remain one step ahead of his pursuer. As The Hacker targets Rivers family and friends, Rivers finds himself in a race against time to out smart the serial killer and attempt to figure out how he can be seen by him in his dreams.

As I began to write it, it dawned on me it was going to end up a generic cop / detective book. More of the same. Deciding this was not what I wanted; I put that manuscript to one side and began thinking about what I really wanted out of the book. That's when I came up with the idea for 'Mind of a Killer'. The Protagonist, namely Ian Rivers had a rough childhood. Living through tragedy and upset, he finds in his teenage years he is able to witness murders being committed in his dreams. He does not see every murder, but his talents have been used to solve several high profile cases. With his psychic talent Ian Rivers is recruited into the Police Force which for a time gives him direction in life. His parents dead and blamed by his sister for their suicide, Rivers has largely been left to fend for himself. As the murderer who is known as 'The Hacker' (due to the violent mutilating nature of his crimes) takes interest in his pursuer, he begins to target Rivers directly through his own psychic dreams. Sit back and enjoy a rollercoaster ride as Ian Rivers discovers that there is more to 'The Hacker' than he could have ever imagined, and that they share more in common that just psychic ability.… (more)
