Review of ‘Mind Game’

Posted on

If you’ve read and liked Bob Rueff’s End Game, you’ll like the sequel, Mind Game. Minneapolis cop Hank Hankensen is at it again, this time trying to nab a killer who leaves his victims at famous Minneapolis landmarks. Darcy Austin, a main character in the first book of the series, appears again – the perpetual damsel in distress it seems.

Tight dialogue and effusive descriptions mark Rueff’s work, but even more interesting for mystery fans, he takes the reader inside the killer’s mind. While not quite as exciting as the first – or maybe I was just jaded by the first one – it will still keep you up and turning pages.

I received a free copy for review, and loved it. Like the guys in the old PGA ad that ran some time ago on TV – this guy knows what he’s doing. A highly recommended read. I give it four stars – I’d like to have given it five, but since it’s a sequel, I don’t think it needed as much of the background information Rueff included. Of course, I stayed up late reading it, so there.
