The Price of Mind

How would your life change …
if you could read another’s thoughts?
If you were the one …
to break the biological code?
If you kept the secret …
only to learn that you weren’t the first?

Imagine John Grisham meets Michael Crichton in a fast-paced, philosophical mystery thriller.

There’s been a breakthrough on the campus of Caltech. A discovery. An invention. One so startling and surprisingly sinister that the inventor can’t tell a soul.

Designed to delight fans of The Price of Time (one of the 100 Most-Sold Books of 2019) and new readers alike, The Price of Mind is a thought provoking thriller readers will never forget.

Precariously poised at the center of the action is Victoria Pixler, a bioengineering student with a tragic past, a passionate quest, and a brilliant mind. After a decade of dedication, she’s just completed her life’s work only to have her dream shattered and her career terminated—by the least likely suspect. Meanwhile, propelling the thrills from the middle of the mystery is one of humanity’s great questions: Would the power to read minds be a blessing, or a curse?

Packed with enlightened anecdotes, amusing quips, and suspense that will rivet readers to their chairs, this novel delivers Tigner’s trademark fast-paced action and first-class intellectual intrigue—from characters you can’t forget.

Prepare for sleep-deprived nights and skipped chores while repeating the phrase: "Just one more page."
