Mindbend: Soul of Evil Review

Hello Reader, 
I read this book some time ago and I loved it. So I decided to do a review on it today.Enjoy!

This book is one of a kind! Abundance of mysteries and crimes are loaded in it.
Amazing comments have been prized by this book.One of them is given by the New York Times as"Master of the medical thriller".
With this book the author has shown what height has the medical profession touched to show extreme possibilities which could only be dreamed of!
The negative and competitive aspects of the medical profession are also portrayed very well.
The evil aim:absolute control of the medical profession,their evil method:destruction of the mind!
The book is really engrossing with changing emotions and a lot of twists and turns!
A must read for mystery lovers!

Was Mindbend able to bend your mind? Tell us in the comments below. Till then Read, Write and Relish!!
