This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

After uncovering a universal code in the brain waves of all living things that could revolutionize psychology, Martin Keller wakes one morning to find himself covered in blood, surrounded by his butchered family. Convinced he’s being framed by a diabolical organization set on stealing or sabotaging his work, he dodges a multi-agency manhunt that pursues him from the seediest corners of DC to the highest offices of government. Struggling to stay alive and find his family’s killer, Marty soon finds himself lost in a maze of conspiracies and paranoia, and eventually begins to doubt his own sanity. How can he find the truth when he doesn’t know what’s real?

This book grabbed me at the beginning. I loved that first chapter, where a woman is killed, a chess piece with her name on it is . . . well, you'll have to read that.

Then we go to Martin Keller. He has some intense moments, which held my attention for a while. After that, I kind of lost interest. However, once I got a few more chapters in, it really picked back up.

Mindfront is fast-paced (for the most part), and has some interesting twists. I wasn't surprised very often with it, the clues left along the way spelled most of it out, but there were a few things that I wasn't expecting to turn out quite the way they did.

Very well written, and a great read for any conspiracy theorist.

4/5 stars
