Mindfield

(1989)
A novel by

 
Publisher's Weekly
In this uninspired thriller set in Montreal, Deverell (Mecca) combines blackmail and murder and bumbling yet vicious mobsters. Twenty-five years? ago Montreal cop Kellen O'Reilly was a subject in CIA-funded experiments performed by sadistic Dr. Satorias--''the Mengele of the mind''--whose brainwashing technique involved LSD. Although O'Reilly is crippled by horrific flashbacks, he initially refuses to join in a suit brought against Satorias by Sarah Paradis, a gorgeous leftist lawyer. Love and death threats eventually persuade him to join forces. O'Reilly and his partner Raolo generate some heat as wisecracking maverick cops, but the action scenes are standard cinematic car chase and shoot-'em-up fare and the romance between Sarah and O'Reilly is more convenient than explicable. An overworked Kennedy assassination conspiracy theory is dredged up for the unsurprising finale.
