Hello All, I hope you are having a blessed day today I will be reviewing a book called The Patmos Deception By Davis Bunn, I have never read his books but was very happy to get a chance to review this book.
About the book 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...
So What Did I think..........
This was my first time reading a book from this author, So I wasn't sure what to expect and its not really the type of books I am use to reading. But I wanted to try some thing new instead of reading supernatural books. Now as far as the characters, Carey she was a cool character she was able to land an awesome job in greece which was so awesome. The way the author described carey was very well written I felt like I knew who she was.
As far as Nick, his character was also well written he was a great character one of my favorites he had a very interesting job a that seems like something I would love, his life seemed so adventurous. And Dimitri he was my lest favorite character, he was described very well but I was not to interested in his life.
My overall all opinion of the book in general was it was filled with a lot of Greece's history which was amazing if you were interested in knowing about the greek culture which was awesome. I love the fact that the book had a lot of mystery in it there were expensive artifacts that were missing , which was very interesting to read about.
The whole story line really keep my interest I loved the characters and the overall story. I will definitely be checking out some of his other titles I think I have found a new author that I like, good Job Mr. Bunn!!!!
