Mind Guerrilla : Martin Tracey

Happy Tuesday you lovely lot, today Its my turn on the blog tour for Mind Guerrilla by Martin Tracey. My many thanks to ZooLoo blog tours for having me on the tour and sorting me out with a copy of the book. Let’s take a look at what the book is about.

When a high-end escort is discovered murdered in her plush waterside apartment, so begins the hunt for a serial killer known as The Crucifier due to the unusual slaying and positioning of his victims.
In parallel there remains the need to locate a dangerous and elusive doomsday cult.
DCI William Chamberlain and DI Judd Stone have an acute thirst for justice on both accounts.
Stone is an ex-football hooligan turned cop. Riddled with guilt and anger, he is used to getting results – albeit somewhat unconventionally.
Chamberlain suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, but curiously, as his health deteriorates, his ability to perform acts of telekinesis increases. When faced with life or death, Chamberlain progresses from manipulating physical matter to controlling minds and sets in motion a dramatic chain of events. But why do things spiral out of control, placing an unknown high-profile target in danger?
Assistance comes from the most unlikely of sources but who is also working against the wheels of justice?
And just what is the connection between The Crucifier, the cult and the high-profile target?
With Spaghetti Western overtones, the chase from Liverpool to London and through both Birmingham UK and Alabama, finds both detectives having to confront their darkest demons in pursuit of the sweet taste of revenge.

Where do i even start, we all know how many notes I keep when reading especially for a blog tour read and well everything went a bit haywire while reading this book I just couldn’t keep up. This is the first book in the Judd Stone series and its a bit of a chunk, coming in at just over 500 pages. To be fair I had it in the kindle so it didn’t feel like it was a chunk of a read apart from the fact I’m such a slow reader and it did take me awhile. Being a chunky book means we also have a pretty list of characters, don’t panic I won’t go through each individually. We have DCI William Chamberlain who has primary progressive multiple Sclerosis. I mean the guy still gets in on the action despite at times slightly slower pace but still he is a determined man and tries not to let anything let alone his condition hold him back. Judd stone is a guy let alone the fact he is a police officer cast that aside for one second. He is someone you would want in your corner backing you up any day of the week. He has a history and part of that history didn’t go away when he joined the police and comes out In force at points. But I really liked him.

Despite the fact its a chunk to read, and at times I did have to put it down, it wasn’t long till I had picked it back up again. Martin Tracey manages to bring places I have never even visited to life in my head with his accurate descriptions. I really think if your going to read this one to go in with as little information as possible. So to wrap up my little rambles all I will say is stone is flawed but intriguing. Mind Guerrilla is nitty and gritty, it has murder, suspense, a serial killer, cult, police procedure, twists, turns and a little bit of paranormal. It’s like a lucky bag filled with goodies thay keeps you entertained and reading.
