Jack Steele is amazing. The author was able to pull this thriller off by keeping the stakes high. I learned a lot from reading this book. Although it was political and he tackled controversial issues, it didn’t sound opinionated or preachy. The story was very realistic and set for today’s times. Loved it!

If you’re searching for a book involving murder, deceit, greed, politics and drama, then Games of Mind is your ultimate choice. A jam-packed suspense, set in a sleepy town of Nomes, Alaska and tie-in an investigator from the city, and you’ll get a mega exciting plot that will keep you awake on the wee hours.

Sorry, I don't like to give a poor review but I just couldn't get along with this book.

It seemed to me that the first person narrative was somewhat cliched and the rest read like a school essay. It would have been more enjoyable if both strands were entwined.

I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. This is no way affected my review.

Decent debut from Dennis Quiles covering mind control, murder, corruption, corporate greed and stem cell research. Jack Steele is the good guy who gets embroiled in this plot in Alaska. A private investigator who I hope to see more of. Perhaps the second novel can embellish us readers on what happened in Jack's life earlier?

I wanted to like this book. I really did. But there wasn't much "thrill" to this thriller. I found myself frustrated at the change of 1st person to 3rd person depending the character in the scene. Too many characters to follow.
