MIND GAMES: KAELY QUINN PROFILER, BOOK ONE, by Nancy Mehl, Bethany House/Bakers Publishing Group


Kaely Quinn’s talents as an FBI behavior analyst are impossible to ignore, no matter how unorthodox her methods. But when a reporter outs her as the daughter of an infamous serial killer, she’s demoted to field agent and transferred to St. Louis.

When the same reporter who ruined her career claims to have received an anonymous poem predicting a string of murders, ending with Kaely’s, the reporter’s ulterior motives bring his claim into question. But when a body is found that fits the poem’s predictions, the threat is undeniable, and the FBI sends Special Agent Noah Hunter to St. Louis.

Initially resentful of the assignment, Noah is surprised at how quickly his respect for Kaely grows, despite her oddities. But with a brazen serial killer who breaks all the normal patterns on the loose, Noah and Kaely are tested to their limits to catch the murderer before anyone else–including Kaely herself–is killed.

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

This is the first book in a series, “Kaely Quinn Profiler.” I really liked its originality.

Do you like FBI procedurals or psychological thrillers? Then you’ll love this intense, fast-paced, exciting read.  Lots of cat and mouse thrill rides. You’ll find yourself drawn into the minds of those who are excellent at playing, you got it, mind games.

The Protagonist is unique and cleverly created, fully fleshed out and successful at reaching her goals.  The main thing that stood out for me was the pacing: fast, fast, fast! There’s no sappy romance thrown in to spoil it, just a minuscule of a hint for what could be later on in the series. Loved that!

I think this series is going to be a great one to follow.

I gave the book:


five star rating
