If you are a fan of historical fiction, suspense, intrigue mixed with a historical mystery and faith then you must read The Patmos Deception by Davis Bunn. This is a fast paced and interesting read. It has just the right mix of suspense, history and mystery to keep you wanting more.
Nick, the journalist, with his friend Carey, the forensic archaeologist, find themselves in the middle of a mystery of who is stealing Grecian antiquities when they are asked to find out who is stealing these antiquities and recover them for Greece. Dimitri the charter boat captain and his first mate Sofia are caught in the middle of smuggling to try to stay afloat and are thrown into the middle of Nick and Carey's investigation. Will they find out who are the culprits and recover the antiquities without losing more than just the antiquities. With lives hanging in the balance they have to hurry to set it all straight.
This book in some ways reminds me of the old Indiana Jones movies. I enjoyed the book and characters. Archaeology is something that always piques my interest and Davis Bunn has brought archeology, church history and mystery together to form a must read book. If you are a church history buff, mystery junkie who loves archeology then get this book to read. The ending leaves you hanging and wanting more. I hope that there will be more books with Nick and Carey in new investigations.

I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest opinion and review.
Now a little personal note:
I am once again back to reading and blogging. I am sorry it took so long but 5 and half weeks ago my Dad suddenly and unexpectantly died so it has taken me awhile to get back to blogging with all we needed to do. I will be trying to blog more often and want to thank you for staying with me and joining me in my love of books.
Comment below if you would please and tell me what you are reading or make a book suggestion for me to read and review.
Until Next Time:
GRAB A CUP OF COFFEE OR TEA, SOME CHOCOLATE, A GOOD BOOK AND KEEP ON READING!
