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.

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.
    I enjoyed THE PATMOS DECEPTION for the most part but the ending left me very unsatisfied. The way it was written led me to believe there was a sequel, but I can't find any mention of one in any listing of Davis Bunn's books. Since it was published in 2014, I would expect one to be out by now. Though the book was slow moving at times, mainly in the passages about the history of Patmos and the other islands, there was enough action at other times to keep me interested. The Greek mamas and aunts made me laugh at times. If the book had a more resolved ending, or if there was a sequel that continued the story, it would be easier to recommend it. As is, I can say if you enjoy history with some action, you might enjoy this book, but don't expect to feel good at the ending. Davis Bunn has written enough books that he should know better than to end a book in the way he did.

    This review was written for The Patmos Deception.
    I have read and enjoyed many Bunn titles. I have been to Greece, and enjoyed the history and cultural aspects. I enjoyed the characters developed. But the ending left me hanging. I really dislike pushing to the end of a good book, turning the page to an empty spot and saying "What???". So disappointing.

    Davis Bunn in his new book, The Patmos Deception published by Bethany House gives us a clever thriller centering around the Greek Island Of Patmos..

    From the back cover: An Ancient Island Holds an Ancient Secret . . .

    Nick Hennessy, a young Texas journalist yearning for his big break, finds himself in Europehis assignment, to investigate the alarming disappearance of invaluable Grecian antiquities. Nick has the credentialsand cover IDto 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 Antiquitiesa 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 countrys economic chaos isnt the only thing that has turned his world on its head

    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.
