Book Description:

Inspired by true events, Mind Games is set against the background of one of the most daring, secret CIA programs of all time.

Tom McKenna is approached by a successful but very disturbed CEO of a Silicon Valley biotech firm, who knows she is being stalked but cannot see the stalker.

Despite a contentious and sometimes volatile relation with his client, McKenna must find the stalker before the woman Stryker loses her sanity, her business and one of the most profound genetic breakthroughs of the century.

Tom McKenna is a private investigator with a biting wit and a romantic flair in the tradition of Robert B. Parker’s Spencer, Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole or Harlen Coben’s Myron Bolitar. But McKenna’s cases tend to fall outside of the customary murder mysteries and often cross paths with the dark side of government intelligence.

Great fiction has many ingredients--this one has the most a reader expects. A very believable main character, Tom McKenna, old-schooled on San Francisco's homicide squad, is a skilled martial arts detective who has true California cool on his side as he jumps into the thick in helping a client stalked by an unseen force capable of attacking her fiercely--in her mind. A storyline develops that combiines the talents of ruthless high tech, high stakes corporate raiders with sinister thugs and moves on to focus on the perplexing role remote mental manipulation can play in victimizing targeted individuals. When writer Wolfe manages to include some actual facts in the shock ending, one that exposes the truth about a long told rumor about how Patty Hearst was the victim of 'mind games', mentally handled in a twisted plot by real life rouge CIA operatives in the mid-1970's, you have read a very entertaining and revealing story at the same time.
