Synopsis

A special bargain-priced box set of the fourth and fifth Jeff Resnick Mysteries by New York Times bestselling author L.L. Bartlett

CHEATED BY DEATH
In this fourth book of the series, Jeff Resnick faces a new dilemma: someone is stalking his sister-in-law, Brenda. There’s violence and vandalism near her workplace, plus she's receiving threatening phone calls and letters. Is her abusive ex-husband responsible? Meanwhile, Jeff grapples with meeting his estranged father and the sister he never knew existed. What does Patty Resnick have to gain with Brenda out of the way?
 

BOUND BY SUGGESTION
In exchange for helping her unlock the emotions of a disturbed young woman, psychiatrist Dr. Krista Marsh promises to cure Jeff Resnick's recurring headaches via hypnotism. Things start out rocky and quickly get worse when both the young girl and the Doctor begin to manipulate Jeff. Soon he's experiencing the young woman's emotions and can't tell where hers leave off and his begin, and Krista has other reasons for ingratiating herself into Jeff's life. Meanwhile, Jeff’s brother Richard is vying for a chairman seat on the hospital’s fundraising board. Two seemingly unrelated events that suddenly converge with deadly results.

 

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett’s pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it’s her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, and now the Tales of Telenia saga, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

Jeff Resnick Mysteries Vol 2
November 6th, 2014
Both of the stories are really good page turners, enjoyable and easy to read. The characters really come to life and as the tension builds you really can't wait to find out what happens next. I recommend reading the first book in the series Murder in Mind (it's free!) Then you will be hooked and have to read the rest. Enjoy, but don't have nightmares...he he

I've read five Jeff Resnick mysteries so far, and they started off good and got better, as the author settled into the characters. Then we hit "Bound by Suggestion", and things go sideways. The story is an emotional morass, and is meant to be. The problem is: so is the writing. Or, possibly it's the editing. It's almost like the point-of-view changes from one setting to the next. It wasn't so much that it was hard to follow, as that it was a little jarring, a tad disruptive, and became a constant annoyance that niggled and made the story less immersive than it ought to have been. It's like one of those class-project stories -- like several people wrote it. Now we'll advance Richard's story from his point of view, then we'll push Jeff's story from the omniscient point of view, then we'll go back to Rich from another point of view, and then we'll.... Well, it got intrusive, and took away from my experience. Perhaps Bartlett, or an assistant editor were under time pressure to convert an earlier short story - written in a different pattern - into a full-blown novel in the Jeff Resnick series. Anyway, I'll take a chance that this one story was an aberration, and read the next one. If it gets back in a proper writing/editing groove, I'll keep following the series. But if it starts looking like the middle and later parts of "Bound by Suggestion", I'll drop it.

The two books in this bundle were good. Cheated by Death is about Jeff being reunited with a father he thought was dead and the mystery that comes of that. Bound by Suggestion is about Jeff and an unethical physciatrist who uses him to try and get millions from a crippled woman.
