Los Angeles, late September

The hot Santa Ana winds are blowing, covering the city in a thin layer of dust.

However, LAPD Detective Sam Leroy doesn’t accept the official view, and decides to widen his investigation.

But he meets resistance from the most unexpected quarters, and soon he faces a choice: play the game, or do what he knows is the right thing to do…

Deadlines (Deadlines Mysteries Book 1)
From the world of the bestselling Lexi Graves Mysteries…

Shayne Winter thinks she has everything she ever wanted: a job as chief reporter at The LA Chronicle, a swish, new apartment in a fabulous neighborhood, and a California-cool lifestyle. But on the very first day, it all goes horribly wrong. The apartment is less “young professional” and more “young offender,” as the only furnishing is a handsome squatter with roving eyes. Even worse, Ben Kosina, her predecessor at The Chronicle, has returned to claim his former job, leaving Shayne nothing but the obituary column and a simple choice: take it or leave it.

Her first assignment should be easy: eulogizing the accidental death of washed-up former child-star, Chucky Barnard, and filing her column. Yet when Shayne interviews the people closest to Chucky, his sister claims Chucky had everything to live for, suggesting his untimely death could only be murder.

Convinced this could be the perfect headline to put her life back on track, Shayne vows to find the truth, persuade a reticent homicide detective to investigate, and bring a killer to justice, all before Ben grabs her story and the killer makes Shayne his or her personal deadline.

Murder on The Mind (The Jeff Resnick Mystery Series Book 1)
Jeff Resnick hardly knew his well-heeled half-brother. But after suffering a fractured skull in a vicious mugging, he reluctantly accepts the fact that he has a long and brutal recovery to face—and his closest of kin can provide him with the time and place to do it.

Now, Jeff is haunted by unexplained visions of a heinous crime—a banker, stalked, killed, and eviscerated like a ten-point buck. When Matt Sumner’s murder is discovered, a still-recovering Jeff realizes this was what he had seen. Jeff must not only convince himself of his new-found psychic ability, but also his skeptical brother Richard Alpert. Since Sumner was Richard’s banker, both brothers have a stake in finding out what happened. With Richard’s reluctant help, Jeff’s investigation leads him to Sumner’s belligerent family and hard-nosed business associates, none of whom want him snooping around.

When Jeff discovers a second victim, he knows he must relentlessly chase his quarry even if it means risking his brother’s life.


“This fine paranormal amateur sleuth will send readers shuffling off to Buffalo to accompany Jeff on his investigation.”
--Midwest Book Review

“Nicely written and quite twisty.”
--The Book Bitch

“Murder on the Mind was a very compelling read, the plot tight and well-paced, and the relationships among the three principals (Jeff, Richard and Brenda) fascinating and cozy. I found it difficult to put down.”

“This book was a great ride that I didn’t want to get off. I fell in love with the characters and I love the tone of this story. This is a good read and I highly recommend it.”

“Murder On The Mind catches your interest from page one.”
--BestSellersWorld.com


When Jeff Resnick begins to recover from a severe brain injury, he discovers he has the ability to sense past events --including a murder -- but nobody believes him. Resnick is a fine character, with a strong sense of right and wrong. This is a page-turner.
-- Barbara D’Amato, award-winning author of FOOLPROOF

"Put yourself in Jeff Resnick's shoes: You've suffered brain damage from a vicious mugging, and now you 'see' allegorical visions of murder in troubled nightmares and in even more troubling, conscious hallucinations. L. L. Bartlett does a wonderful job of showing us how difficult such a life can be as Jeff tries to overcome his own tragedy by using his new gift to investigate others. Beautifully written in a stark, spare style, MURDER ON THE MIND is a perfect choice for anyone open to a paranormal thread in a lovingly woven crime novel."
-- Jeremiah Healy, author of TURNABOUT and THE ONLY GOOD LAWYER:

L.L. Bartlett is a New York Times bestselling author.

Murder On The Mind was originally published in hardcover by Five Star/Cengage. Published in paperback by Worldwide Mystery Library.
