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.

Publisher's Description

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...

    This review was written for The Patmos Deception.
    The sign of a great book is a neglected family and house. You can know I've found a page turner when we end up having Frosted Flakes for supper. In fact when my kids were little, I limited myself to one work of fiction every couple of months just so that they would be better taken care of.

    While reading "The Patmos Deception", by Davis Bunn, my house was as clean as ever. It wasn't that it was a bad book or that I felt like it dragged, it just wasn't a page turner. Not once did I think, "This book will never end." but not once did I say, "I'll wipe up that spilled milk after I'm done this book."

    The author seemed to know the geography of Greece and had insights into it's history and culture. At times the geographical outlining was a bit much. I don't really need to know which city is by which on the next island over from another. I'm just as happy to read about imaginary locations. What I do need in a suspense/action fiction is suspense and action. This was my biggest dislike about the book. I kept thinking, "Surely it's going to get exciting soon." but it just...didn't. It took me a long time to finish reading "The Patmos Deception"; not because it plotted along or was written in old English but rather because it was so easy to put it down. I was never on the edge of my seat.

    I can't say I'd really recommend this book. It's not all bad; it just isn't great. At least there was no smut or graphic violence or a leading lady acting like a moron. Always a bonus.

    If you like Greece, the sea, and a book that has a quiet feel to it, this one's for you. Just don't be deceived into thinking it's going to be full of suspense and action.

    BTW, I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    The Patmos Deception

    I was so looking forward to reading Davis Bunn's latest novel, The Patmos Deception. Bunn is, once again, a master story teller. I felt like I had traveled to Greece. The economic downfall, the political upheaval, the historical background, family, traditions, all laid the foundation to a very compelling story. The characters were intriguing and complex. Bunn's use of picture words has always been such an exciting adventure for me. I am there, I am watching, hearing the conversations, being a part of the story. Not many writers can draw me into their stories as Bunn can. If you have ever read any of Davis Bunn's books, you know he can take you to the precipice and leave you wanting for more. This book has suspense, a touch of romance, a man's faith blooming, and a look at life in modern day Greece.

    I am a reviewer for Bethany House. I was sent a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review. I highly recommend this book.

    This review was written for The Patmos Deception.
    Davis has done it again with another excellent book. As it ended, my immediate thought was "there has to be a sequel". He has left us hanging wanting to know what happens next in the lives of Carey, Nick, Dimitri, and their friends and family. It is listed as a Romantic Suspense but I felt the romance is more of an undercurrent rather than the main theme. There is also the undercurrent of Christian faith running through the book. The suspense is quite gripping. I recommend this book.

    THE PATMOS DECEPTION by Davis Bunn . . . WHO IS REALLY BEING DECEIVED?

    This review was written for The Patmos Deception -eBook.
    A good book is like a fine bottle of wine; once you open it, you need to let it breathe. Otherwise, the experience will be less than expected.

    THE PATMOS DECEPTION is a good book.

    Davis Bunn brings to your table characters that are fully rounded, deep, complex. The interactions are thoughtful and genuine. The setting, modern Greece, is as much a character in the book as Nick, and Dimitri, and Sofia, and Carey. Open the book, brew your favorite beverage . . .and let it breathe.

    Nick Hennessy, an investigative journalist hailing from Texas, has been tasked with the responsibility of investigating the disappearance of invalauable Greek antiquities. He has the credentials, he has the chutzpah, he has the charisma, and he knows just the researcher to assist him in his assignment. However, his journalistic career has hamstringed his ability to engage fully with the moment, especially when it comes to affairs of the heart.

    Carey Mathers, fresh from her studies in forensic archeology, has accepted a job with the prestigious Athens Institute for Antiquities. Her studies have exquisitely prepared her for the job, when one considers that 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.

    Engage with this book. Savor it. Allow it to caress all of your senses, and The Patmos Deception will become, to you as well, as a fine wine.

    The Patmos Deception is a good book.

    5 stars for another excellent offering from Davis Bunn
