Okay, so here is my sob story. I am about half-way through this novel, and I lost it!! That is not something that you want to do with a Steven James thriller! Once you get into it, you are hooked and you have to keep reading. Alas, I was cleaning and set the book aside (so it would be safe), and I haven't seen it since. This is extremely unfortunate because I am very curious how everything will work together.
While covertly investigating a controversial neurological research program, exposé filmmaker Jevin Banks is drawn into a far-reaching conspiracy involving one of the world's largest pharmaceutical firms. After giving up his career as an escape artist and illusionist in the wake of his wife and sons' tragic death, Jevin is seeking not only answers about the questionable mind-to-mind communication program, but also answers to why his family suffered as they did. Rooted in ground-breaking science and inspired by actual research, Placebo explores the far reaches of science, consciousness, and faith. Readers will love this taut, intelligent, and emotionally gripping new thriller from master storyteller Steven James.
I read the Patrick Bowers series and reviewed most of them. They are great suspense books. Bishop is my favorite! Placebo is very different but quite entertaining. Admittedly, I skimmed some of the science details, but the plot and characters are unique and well-developed. James is a talented and original author. I would definitely recommend him to suspense and thriller fans.
I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
