Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2014 -- David Daniel is a real life ‘Mentalist’.

A fan of the TV series from day one, Daniel quickly figured out the secrets and clues planted by creator Bruno Heller, but kept quiet out of respect for the show’s fans and its masterminds. After ‘The Mentalist’ revealed the identity of Red John during a rousing mid-season episode, Daniel knew it was time to break his silence.

With the release of ‘The Mentalist and The Search for Red John’, Daniel details how he knew the identity of Red John from the first season, and further, how he grasped the system of secret codes planted throughout the series by Heller.

“I’m a professor of psychology, so the show was highly interesting to me,” says the author. “When I realized I’d ‘figured it out’, I began to write down my discoveries in the hope that someday, I’d be able to share them with the show’s other fans. I’d also love to chat with Bruno Heller and discuss his fascinating clues – I detail over 100 of them throughout the book. Obviously, Heller assumed someone, someday would crack the code – and I have.”


Finally, it can be revealed.

The author waited to expose all the secrets until the public "reveal" of Red John so as not to ruin the suspense of the show. This collector's item is about a secret set of codes hidden in The Mentalist that revealed the secret identity of Red John years before he was revealed to the TV audience.
