Kurzbeschreibung

"A dead-on thriller for the decade...I can't imagine anyone reading this and not wanting more." --Thomas F. Monteleone, author of the NY Times bestseller, The Blood of the Lamb and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing a Novel 

If you could hear the thoughts of every person for three blocks around-the regrets, rationalizations, commercial jingles, the lies that hide what they can't bear to think--how could you ever trust anyone? And if you could make them believe anything you wanted, how could you ever trust yourself?

Max Renn is a legend of the Soviet mind control program, a genetic experiment, the product of three generations of psychics bred by the state for their power. Before his first mission, the Soviet Union collapses and he disappears.

We meet him twenty years later in the Everglades, keeping as far from people as he can get, until his best friend-his only friend-is murdered and he is forced to assemble a team of people like him to fight the international conspiracy behind the murder.

"Ted Krever has been a writer to watch, now he's a writer to read. Do not miss MINDBENDERS." -F. Paul Wilson, author of the NY Times bestseller The Keep and the Repairman Jack novels.
"Ted Krever is a great storyteller, but more importantly, the stories he creates and writes are ones that I want to read.  In this ADD era, where even e-mails are considered too long, Ted's work commands my attention.  It is definitely worthy of yours too." -David Leaf, biographer and award-winning writer/director/producer of such films as "The Night James Brown Saved Boston, "The U.S. Vs. John Lennon" and "BEAUTIFUL DREAMER: Brian Wilson & The Story of SMiLE."

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Ted Krever watched the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, went to Woodstock (the good one), and graduated Sarah Lawrence College with a useless degree in creative writing. He spent the next few decades in media journalism, at ABC News on the magazine show Day One with Forrest Sawyer and the Barbara Walters Interviews of a Lifetime series, as General Manager of BNNtv, a documentary production company, creating programs for CNN, A&E, Court TV, CBS, MTV News, Discovery People and CBS/48 Hours, and as VP/Production of a short-lived dotcom, followed swiftly by nine months of unemployment. Ted now writes novels and sells mattresses in Staten Island NY, a job which registers at a loathsome -98 on the Cosmopolitan Eligible Male Job-Status Guide. Ted is happily divorced, purports to be a good kisser and hopes for world peace. He was once accused of attempting to blow up Ethel Kennedy with a Super-8 projector.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Who is controlling whom? 30. Oktober 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
When Greg's guardian is murdered, Max Renn shows up and whisks him into a world of mindbenders. Mind and memory fried by his experiences in the military, Greg has no clue of his own capabilities until Max forces him to use them to keep himself and his newfound friends alive while they try to stop an event that would change the world forever. Greg and Max gather more help as they unravel the mystery locked in Greg's brain and rush to save hope.

This is a fast-paced paranormal conspiracy thriller. Mr. Krever has done an exceptional job of creating and portraying the characters and their abilities, and weaving it into a plot that will absolutely enthrall you. His work is fascinating and provocative, leaving you wondering how much we control our own destiny, and how much is controlled by others.

Well done, Ted Krever. I'm glad you've got a second one coming soon!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Futuristic Story that Makes You Stop and Think 14. Juni 2012
Von Michael Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book, as the author quickly gets you into the head (pun intended) of his characters. From start to finish, the book is pretty much non-stop action and there are some shades of the happenings in this book of things I have read about trying to occur in various research institutions and governments. It does make you step back outside of the novel and think "what if" on today's society and some of the crazy stuff you hear about happening in the world.

One drawback on this book for me was the ending - it just stops with an abrupt ending - and the "Now" chapter appears to have been rushed as if the author was tired of writing. What a letdown, but the other 99.9% of the book was great.

I originally picked this up during a free Kindle promotion and, as I type this review I see the pricing is $2.99 - you will get more than $2.99 of value out of this and I recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing, science fiction meets fact - MUST READ!! 25. Juni 2011
Von K. Sozaeva - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Greg has been out of the military for a year now and is living in with a man he calls Uncle Dave; his mind was fried by the stress of his experiences in the Middle East, causing severe memory loss and problems with speaking and even thinking. Hearing screaming, he leaves his room and finds Dave Monaghan dead in the bathroom, the screams coming from the small TV showing the assassination of the Indian premiere. Before he can really process all of this, a man known to him as Mr. Dulles shows up, tells him to pack his stuff and takes him away - they haven't gone far before the house explodes.

This is only the very beginning of "Mindbenders," a story in which science fiction and fact combine (and which is based upon real events and programs). Mindbenders are people who are able to affect things with their minds - mostly through mind reading and affecting other people's thoughts. Dulles - Max - turns out to be a particularly powerful mindbender with a checkered past. Dave, it turns out, has used Greg as a vessel - storing information subconsciously in Greg's mind that Max and Greg must use in order to answer their questions. Initially seeking only to understand Dave's killing and why it happened, Max and Greg discover they must combat a group of other mindbenders that threaten the whole world in their lust for money and power. They seek out others to help them, achieving a final count of four people - Max, Greg, Kate and Mark - against a vast, multinational conspiracy.

I was enthralled by this story and absolutely devoured it. It is fast-paced, exciting and yet allows for good character development and back-story. The author - Ted Krever - cleverly uses run together words and phrases to create ideas, such as an instance in which Greg thinks he would need a degree in "Idontknowwhat" in order to understand a situation in which he has been placed. Mr. Krever also has a good grasp of character dynamics and the interactions between his characters is realistic and interesting.

Overall I must say I was mightily impressed. I can recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good thriller, suspense science/science fiction story, which covers a lot of people. In fact, anyone who enjoys a good tale should give this one a try - I think you'll be as impressed as I was!

5.0 von 5 Sternen More Than Just a Thriller 2. Juni 2011
Von Claudia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is that rare piece of fiction based on fact in such a way as to make the lines between the two seem to blur. Mindbenders is built on the work done by both the US and Soviet governments as they attempted to harness the most powerful instrument on the face of the earth - the human mind - as yet another weapon in their massive arsenals. More experimentation has been done in this area than most people realize, and Ted Krever obviously did his research very thoroughly before writing this book. In this novel, he deals with remote viewing, telepathy, and other things that some consider 'tricks' of the mind, but which many believe are far closer to reality than myth.

The novel is well written and well edited, with a storyline that takes hold in the first few pages and doesn't let go until the plot has unwound in ways one would not expect. The characters are well developed, 'warts and all', as the saying goes. The story takes the reader from the swamps of Florida to the catacombs of Rome while dealing with life and death, and war and peace.

These are not, for the most part, 'nice' people, as their actions demonstrate, and they each have their inner struggles, their secret demons. When reading this book, I couldn't escape the feeling that the potential reality lies close to the surface. Perhaps because it's a subject in which I've long been interested, but I couldn't read it without knowing that while it is fiction, and a fascinating story, the underlying dynamics are all too possible.

This is a novel, a story that came forth from the mind of the author and found its way to the pages of a fascinating book; however, one of the most interesting aspects of the story is that it is not so far from reality that something very much like it could not happen. The story shows how powerful forces of the mind could be used for overwhelming evil or redemptive good, and we can but hope that the latter would triumph in any battle between the two.

The ending certainly is an 'ending', but I see plenty of room for a sequel one of these days, if the spirit moves Mr. Krever, and we are fortunate enough to have him write it. I was sorry when it ended, which I think is the way I want to feel when I've been fortunate enough to stumble on a really good book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome Read - You Won't Be Able To Put Down 13. Juli 2011
Von CristiAk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I won this book in a giveaway. I thought it sounded interesting but really it was not my first choice type of read. I was blown away by it! It is an awesome book. At times it was difficult for me to read. One of the characters was a vet suffering from PTSD. My son was in Iraq 10 years ago. Some of the scenes with the character of Greg brought back all the worry and fear. This is a fascinating book that is fiction based on fact. Ted Krever did an outstanding job! Read it even if it isn't the genre you usually read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mind control out of control 14. Juni 2011
Von L. Mihay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What would it be like to read minds? Cool, huh? Maybe NOT. What if you could CONTROL people, through minds? How about harnessing the very molecules around you? Apparently, way back, various countries tried to develop this kind of control. Ted Krever has taken the idea and built Mindbenders around it. I have to say, this is one book that was hard to put down. What's really scary is that this COULD have happened.
