Review: The Patmos Deception
Author: Davis Bunn
Genre: FICT, Romantic Suspense
Short Book Description:
An Ancient Island Holds an Ancient Secret . . .
Nick Hennessy, a young Texas journalist yearning for his big break, finds himself in Europe–his assignment, to investigate the alarming disappearance of invaluable Grecian antiquities. Nick has the credentials–and cover ID–to unearth the truth. And he knows just the researcher to help him…
Carey Mathers, fresh from her studies in forensic archeology, has accepted a job with the prestigious Athens Institute for Antiquities–a dream come true, really, particularly when the Greek isle of Patmos, where the Apostle John received his vision of the Apocalypse, was a particular focus of her research.
Dimitri Rubinos, for whom the Greek islands represent his life, holds on by his fingernails to the family charter boat business. But his country’s economic chaos isn’t the only thing that has turned his world on its head…
Honestly it took me a little while to get into the book since the first little bit is written from three different views. It didn’t take long though until I was engrossed in the story and couldn’t stop reading.
I really enjoyed how the author wove in biblical facts without being too overwhelming like a lot of authors do. The historical details were really interesting as well, especially since I love anything to do with history.
The only thing I didn’t really like about the book was the ending; it just didn’t seem finished to me, as it left quite a few unanswered questions, other than that though I really enjoyed it.
I can’t wait to get my hands on more of Davis Bunn’s books as they really interesting, well researched and written.
