TAMPA, Fla. - May 16, 2018 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that MENTAL STATE by M. Todd Henderson will be published on October 15, 2018 in trade paperback and ebook formats.

About MENTAL STATE …

When conservative law professor Alex Johnson is found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at his house in Chicago, everyone thinks it is suicide. Everyone except his brother, Royce, an FBI agent.

Without jurisdiction or leads, Agent Johnson leaves his cases and family to find out who killed his brother. There are many suspects: the ex-wife, an ambitious doctor with expensive tastes and reasons to hate her ex; academic rivals on a faculty divided along political lines; an African-American student who failed the professor's course.

As Agent Johnson peels back layers of mystery in his rogue investigation, the brother he never really knew emerges. Clues lead from the ivy-covered elite university and the halls of power in Washington to the gritty streets of Chicago and Lahore, Pakistan. Ultimately, Agent Johnson must face the question of how far he is willing to go to catch his brother's killer.

Mental State is about two brothers learning about each other in death, and about the things people will do when convinced they are in the right.

Advance praise for MENTAL STATE …

"Exciting and compulsively readable, Mental State marks the entrance of a striking new talent on the thriller scene. Todd Henderson's confident debut draws the reader into the unfamiliar worlds of academia, the law, and backroom politics, while providing a fresh take on more familiar thriller ground like the world of law enforcement. The Professor's murder mystery delivers the rough and tumble goods, and it will leave readers wanting more." —Kurt Schlichter, lawyer and bestselling author

"Mental State is fascinating, detailed, and a pure page-turner. It's a must-read if you love the country, the Supreme Court, or just a book that will keep you up at night." —Ben Shapiro, public intellectual, talk-show host, and bestselling author

"Try as I might, I could not put Mental State down. It's terrific. At times hilarious, always interesting, and in parts truly disturbing. I loved it." —Michael Seidman, Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center
