"The Patmos Deception," by Davis Bunn

"The Patmos Deception," by Davis Bunn

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...


I did not like the ending of this book.  It left you in mid air to my mind.  There were more questions to be answered and more of this story to be told.  Otherwise this was a good book.  I enjoyed the historical aspect to it and the description of the Greek Isles.  Made you want to be there and brought them to life.

Bit confused about the romantic intentions of Nick and Dimitri towards Carey.  Without giving away the storyline, you will not find out who holds the key to her heart in this book.  Whether there is a sequel to this book who knows?

This book kept you on your toes as you got caught up in the drama and intrigue; and there were enough twists to keep it interesting as well.  It wasn't hard to read and you could put it down and pick it up without forgetting where you were at in the story.

Stars out of 5 : 4 Great book, terrible ending!!
