Book Review: Placebo by Steven James

Back Cover: One man must uncover the truth-even when others will stop at nothing to keep it buried.

While 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. He seeks answers about the questionable mind-to-mind communication program-and answers to his own family tragedy.

Rooted in groundbreaking science, Placebo explores the far reaches of science, consciousness, and faith. This taut, intelligent, and emotionally gripping new thriller from master storyteller Steven James will keep you flipping pages late into the night.

My Review: Steven James has once again written a book that is almost impossible to put down. Though Placebo gives us a whole new cast of characters, it is still full of the twists, turns, danger, and suspense that I've come to expect from Steven James. James has an amazing ability to create believable and deep characters. I must say that I wasn't sure that I was going to like the novel at first, because the beginning starts off in second person ("you" is a character in the story). Though I think I understand why he did it, I felt that it was a strange way to start the book. I was greatly relieved when he switched into first person. Other than that, I really enjoyed Placebo.

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this book to readers of suspense and fans of Steven James.
