The President initiated his highly classified VESPER project to locate powerful telepaths, “mindreachers,” rumored to have been born decades ago in South Africa and hidden around the globe.

Former SEAL and Shaolin-trained martial arts master, Major Jon Coulter, USMC, is ordered to work with a minor female telepath to find a mindreacher who can identify terrorists hell bent on destroying the United States with nuclear weapons and at the same time, determine if telepathy could be used in future combat situations. They quickly become embroiled in a perilous global search for mindreachers. Mindreacher has concepts and technology currently in research stages and used in the novel as common place.

This initial novel in the mindreacher series is filled with terrorists, technology, telepathy and global adventures of the American duo battling assassins from al-Qaeda groups and their amoebic offspring who don’t want to be identified.

Will a mindreacher be powerful enough to fly over a city and find terrorists? 

Females of all ages will enjoy learning about the innocent, telepathic heroine entangled in government intrigues and her dangerous international quest. Male readers will empathize with the elite U.S. Marine Corps officer, a hero assigned to protect VESPER's only telepath during death threatening events on land, water and in the air.  Everyone will enjoy the thrills, danger and humor.

Before publication, the manuscripts attracted broad spectrum of followers.  New York Gotham Writers workshop attendees, members of the Central Ohio Fiction Writers organization and others have compared the Mindreacher series as a cross between the genres of writer Clive Cussler and the Indiana Jones writers. One reader referred to author Irene Baron as "Michael Crichton reborn!"

Blending future technology with telepathic activity, Mindreacher has attracted a broad spectrum of followers. Editors and readers fall in love with the exciting adventures of the key characters. The international and multicultural aspects of the novel heighten awareness of other countries, their culture, religions and people.


I can't believe more people haven't discovered this intense sci-fi thriller! ... I was swept off my feet by a far more complex scenario.  ... what startled me about this story was just how different a path it took. It is loaded with psychological and scientific intricacies that really make you wonder. For instance, if a group of children are telepathic, what would that mean for their learning capabilities? Their emotional and intellectual growth? Their behavior? Would they even bother to speak verbally? These questions are within the first few chapters and they don't stop as the story picks up pace and asks even deepter questions while dodging assassins.  It's a bit like Jurassic Park, but instead of dinosaurs, its psychics. The science is dense and the ethical complications are thought provoking. This book will change everything you think you know about psychics. I highly suggest this to anyone who loves science fiction or is interested in psychics.  Author: Theophoanes Avery

Mindreacher is a top-notch geopolitical sci-fi thriller that is epic in its scope, truly original and encyclopedic in its details. Irene imbues the novel with ideas that only someone with her amazing personal biography could bring to a novel of this kind. This is the second book of Irene's I've read and this one, like her Mary Knew, is written with such clarity that even the most complex concepts are very easy to grasp. In Mindreacher the United States faces nuclear destruction by terrorists unless a mindreacher - a person with telepathic power - can be found to assist in locating the terrorists. Enter a U.S. Marine who adds dash and heroism to the story that expands the globe. Remarkably, at the back of the novel is a detailed glossary and five pages of references (Did I mention the novel is filled with facts?). I highly recommend this book.  Author: Steve Carr

A great summer read. I think this story was unique in that it portrayed a character with extraordinary mental capabilities who embarked on a worldwide adventure to find others with similar capabilities in order to combat terrorists. I highly recommend this book.   J. Worthington

 Time for another indie book review and let me tell you this one was mind blowing! This intense science fiction thriller will make you question everything you thought you knew about psychic ability all while taking you along to thwart terrorist attacks with the power of the mind. Extremely thought-provoking. Will make any sci-fi thriller junkie jump with glee. Theophanes Avery

The mindreacher concept is novel and refreshing. The action doesn't stop.  Justine Wittich, Editor 

It was difficult to differentiate between fact and fiction. A good read. Vicki Whitacre, M.D.  Beta Reader

This novel reads like a blend of Clive Cussler and Indiana Jones. Full of excitement! Sandy Wickersham McWhorter, Editor

I was fascinated to learn so much about the human mind. I didn't want it to end. Kathy Brantley, Reader

Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. Catherine Frompovich, Editor 

You are like Michael Crichton reborn! J. Kern, Reader


 SNIPER RIFLES: In Mindreacher, the first book of the MINDREACHER series, a 50-caliber ROBAR rifle is used by a Sri Lanka sniper. Author Irene Baron practiced with the ROBAR and other rifles using a one-inch thick steel target 500-yards distant to experience the feel of the weapon. Author-Irene-Baron-practices-with-sniper-rifle She said, "What an experience! I love the ROBAR! So smooth. No recoil."  She added that you couldn't see a bullet hit the target, but you could hear the impact on metal from where she fired.

Baron used the USMC instructor manual used to teach Marines how to become snipers. She stated, "You have to write about something you know.  I needed to know what it was like to fire large caliber rifles and see how difficult it is to pinpoint your shot. After reading that section of MINDREACHER, my readers will know what it feels like to use a sniper rifle." Readers can learn more about Robar services and products at:

Author Irene Baron sincerely thanks members of the U.S. Marine Corps (retired) that provided many different large caliber rifles, pistols and other firearms with ammunition and the remote, outdoor firing range for her use over several years. She became quite proficient hitting the steel bulls eye at 500-yards!


Irene is a patriot and honors all military, past and present and law enforcement personnel. Her award winning photo of the four national flags and flag truck convey her love of the United states.
