Steven James’ Placebo

About
While covertly 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. After giving up his career as an escape artist and illusionist in the wake of his wife and sons’ tragic death, Jevin is seeking not only answers about the questionable mind-to-mind communication program, but also answers to why his family suffered as they did.

Review
Well, you already know that I think that Mr. James is a phenomenal writer and this book is only another testament to the fact. I really enjoyed the character of Jevin Banks. Jevin Banks is a magician, which is a pretty unique career choice. It adds for some creative flair throughout this novel. There is also more romance in this novel than in Patrick Bowers, which I enjoyed. The only drawback is that there are a lot of phsyics explanations for things and at times it was like reading chinese (too many flashbacks to phsyics class for me). It had it’s violent moments as well, but that shouldn’t be too surprising. I completely enjoyed the novel and appreciated Mr. James branching out and doing new things. Spiritually, the novel deals with the concept of death and how it is final…except that Jesus conquered death. Very interesting. Highly Recommended.
