Mindset Book - Novel Cover


By Stephen Sadler

Mindset - Abaddon is a science fiction thriller about the boundless reaches of the human imagination, and the innovations that are best left inside our minds.

Jack Cooper is a leading neuroscientist who invents a new wireless mobile device, named the Mindset. This incredible instrument easily converts thoughts into text via smart phone. Without Jack’s knowledge, the technology is sold to a Venture Capital firm, who modifies it toward their own dark ends. By refusing to let his device be hi-jacked, Cooper is taken on a thrill ride of deception, abduction, and mind-control.

Ultimately, Jack learns he is the only one who can navigate this new surreal landscape and stop what never should have started in the first place.

Only one question remains - Is it just too late?

After leaving a business dinner gone south, Jack noticed a black SUV trailing closely behind. Curious to see if the vehicle would follow, he quickly turned right onto the I-10 ramp. As he took his eyes off the road for one last second, he heard the squealing of tires, the twisting of metal, combined with the airbag explosion and the shattering of broken glass. Disoriented, he tried to climb out of the smashed overturned rental, but the pain became unbearable, and then all went dark.

From The Author

Over the last 30 years, I have spent a majority of my time inventing and building products, software, and technologies. Recently, I came to a point in my life where I still loved inventing and creating, but I was tired of having to make things work and keep them operational. Interestingly enough, writing has become my release. When I write, especially sci-fi stories, I still feel the same reward of invention and creation; however, I don’t have to build a prototype, or even write one line of code. As matter of fact, after the research is done, all I have to do is explain it, say it works, and magically all the technology in the story works, just because I said it did! Obviously, this is far easier than conceiving an idea, patenting it, building a business and marketing plan, procuring sales and investment, and so on, and so on. Seriously though, I really love to write, and the older I get the more it seems like my passion.

We all know many concepts and ideas born in sci-fi can become reality. So I hope this book will help to slow down evil usages of future ideas and inventions. However, based on history, I doubt it.

Mindset has many parallels to my own life that are very close to my heart. I really hope you like the story.
