Product Description

Carey Mathers arrives in Athens to take a coveted position at the Classical Institute, only to discover the building is shuttered, the institute bankrupt. Journalist Nicholas Tyler believes he is headed for the big time when his paper sends him to Europe. But four months into his assignment, the office is closed. Now he must find freelance investigative projects--or go home. Dimitri Roubinos, born into a seafaring family, knows the Aegean and its islands better than anyone alive. But his looks and charm are not enough to overcome the collapse in the tourist trade.

Economic chaos is threatening Greece's future--and its past. Three distinctive characters are drawn to the storied isle of Patmos, and as they uncover a plot to plunder ancient religious treasures, the stakes are raised to a breaking point. A revelation from beyond time will give new meaning to the sacrifices all three must make...and hold a special promise for each of them.

    Someone is stealing Greek antiquities. Nick Hennessy, journalist, Carey Mathers, forensic archaeologist and Dimitri Rubinos, tour-boat operator, will eventually join forces to find the culprit and put an end to the smuggling. I have been fortunate enough to have been to Greece. I was even at Patmos. What goes on in this book was not part of the tour. Get ready for an exciting suspense ride as The Patmos Deception is a thriller, which simply means that everyones lives are in danger from practically page one. During the course of this investigation the trio will encounter villains, treachery and life-threatening situations that will keep you flipping the pages as fast as you can read. The lead characters are terrific and we root for them as we live through their various heart-throbbing encounters. Davis Bunn does a truly remarkable job in this book while exciting us with this story that everyone will enjoy.

    As with all of Davis Bunn's books this one is superb in every way. I sincerely hope he has a sequel to this story. Every time I start one of his books it is almost impossible to put it down! I would highly recommend this author to anyone who loves a great story line that actually makes you feel like you are there!

    This review was written for The Patmos Deception.
    I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. A slow start while the Characters are explained, Had to chug along until Carey gets to Greece. Interesting weaving of characters, infused with some humor. If you like Greek history and archaeology, this is the book for you. Mystery, suspense and wanna be Romance. If you stick with it, it's a decent read.

    The Patmos Deception, by Davis Bunn



    Davis Bunn is one of my favorite authors of Christian fiction. When I learned about his new book, The Patmos Deception, I could hardly wait for my copy to arrive and get busy reading. And as expected, I was not disappointed. After all, Patmos, a part of the Greek islands, is where the Apostle John was exiled in AD 95 and where he had his Apocalypse vision and wrote the book of Revelation. It was fascinating to read a story that took place on an island that has so much biblical history.

    Nick Hennessy, an investigative reporter, is secretly hired by the assistant director of an organization called World Heritage Sites, to investigate the disappearance of historical and artistic icons from the Greek islands. Needing an expert in Grecian antiquities, Nick hires Carey Mathers, a forensic archaeologist who is also a long-time friend.

    The third main character is Dimitri Rubinos, who lives on the island of Patmos, owner of a charter boat business that is about to go under, as most of the other businesses on Patmos already had, due to the economic crisis in Greece. Desperate to earn enough money to support his aging father and grandmother and to save his business, Dimitri agrees to use his boat to pick up and deliver cargo for an extremely wealthy English man. At the time, Dimitri thought that what the cargo actually was made little difference to him. By accident, he discovered that it made a great deal of difference because this cargo made him a smuggler. What could he do to make good come of this? He didnt know, but he would figure it out; he would make a plan. Then, Dimitri discovers that the investigation by Nick and Carey has led them to him!

    Davis Bunn is a real storyteller. I really like how this story starts out with mystery, then danger creeps in, and then the level of suspense grows and grows with every turn of a page. I got so caught up in the story that I just could not put the book down until I knew the ending! I would recommend it to anyone. Also, it is appropriate for church libraries.

    Bethany House Publishers provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for The Patmos Deception.
    Having been to Greece twice, I enjoyed the tour-guide tidbits. But without a real ending, why start a book? I found this highly disappointing and I don't like being spoon-fed either. Dialogue and Greek characters were okay to good, but definitely not the page-turner I expected.
