About this Book

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.

Grab your seats and get ready for Nancy Mehl's latest book, Mind Games! Kaely Quinn is an FBI behavior analyst and her methods may be unorthodox. She is the daughter of an infamous serial killer and is demoted to field agent and transferred to St. Louis because of a reporter who discovers her true identity. 

Mehl put together an interesting, highly engaging, suspenseful story. From the poem predicting a string of murders, ending with Kaely's to the analytical aspects, I kept turning the pages to see what was going to happen next.

Special Agent Noah Hunter is sent by the FBI to work on the case. Kaely isn't happy about having someone working with her, especially since he will be the lead on the case. Noah isn't particularly happy about his assignment either, but the two have to find a way to work together as more and more people are killed.

Mind Games was an excellent start to Mehl's new series. The story felt well researched and the characters were well developed. It was interesting getting inside Kaely's head different times and seeing the process behind how she did her work. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in this series!
