An action-packed tale of the occult featuring a plucky heroine, murderous devil worshippers, and the mind-bending science of hypnotism
A sinister band of killers marks a young heiress for death. The assassins, led by a spectral voice known as the Mystery Mind, seek a treasure from the lost city of Atlantis. Kidnapped by the evildoers, Violet Bronson prays that her guardian, Doctor Sutton, and her fiancé, hypnotist Robert Dupont, will rescue her. Sutton and Dupont set out in search of the Temple of the Skull, but the solution to this paranormal mystery proves even more bizarre than these two men of science could have imagined.
A novelization of a popular film serial, The Mystery Mind is spooky, suspenseful, and irresistibly fun.
