Boy from 1966 Helps Catch a Killer in New Thriller by Evelyn Ortiz

A lively 10-year-old boy and a technology specialist seem to have a link that spans decades in this new thriller released by Dog Ear Publishing. Told with plenty of craft, the story leads readers on an unforgettable journey into the impossible.

New York, NY, May 23, 2018 --( “In just a few hours, panic would set in to ruffle the quiet lives of the residents of a housing project on the west side of Manhattan.” Thus begins a new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing that stars a single man who sees glimpses of the past through the eyes of a young boy. He worries that he’s going crazy, but telling the truth might prove more dangerous.

“Mind Frame” serves up the story of IT specialist Bruce Spencer, who begins to have what he calls “block-outs” as he appears to grow smaller and see events from a past life that is not his own. Some of 10-year-old Nicholas “Chickenneck” Anderson’s memories are warm, such as eating pancakes with his aunt, but others are much darker, and some are downright terrifying.

After a few months of hiding what is happening from those he cares about, Bruce begins to open up. A grisly discovery happens not long after, and the wheels are set in motion for what could be the biggest risk of all: catching a criminal. Will Bruce listen to what the block-outs reveal of events that took place decades earlier or will he ignore them in hopes of keeping his loved ones safe?

Evelyn Ortiz, a former director of human resources, has retired to pursue her dream job: writing stories and poetry. The native New Yorker was born and raised in Manhattan. She worked within the federal court system after graduating from Fordham University. She and her husband live in Brooklyn.
