ABOUT THE BOOK:
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.
Rooted in ground-breaking science and inspired by actual research, Placebo explores the far reaches of science, consciousness, and faith. Readers will love this taut, intelligent, and emotionally gripping new thriller from master storyteller Steven James.
Like many Steven James fans, I was introduced to him by reading his Patrick Bowers series. I devoured each book in that series!
Placebo introduces us to Jevin Banks and Steven James' new series! Filled with some serious suspense, mystery, and intrigue, Placebo will have you turning pages as fast as you can! I LOVED the journey that Jevin is on personally and professionally as well. The loss of his wife and twin sons takes a huge toll on him and learning how to deal with the pain and frustration of losing them is not always easy!
Some say, "behind every great man is an even greater woman," and I believe this to be true in the case of Jevin Banks. Charlene is Jevin's assistant and friend, who, at times, knows him better than even he knows himself. She can patient with Jevin when necessary, and very protective at other times.
Jevin and his crew find themselves in the middle of an assignment with one of the worlds largest pharmaceutical companies, as well as project research of mind-to-mind communication. As you can imagine in the pharmaceutical world, funds aren't a problem, and the people who are behind this project will do whatever it takes to make sure this program is a success, even if someone has to lose their life. Virtually no one can be trusted!
I Love Jevin's team and as they work diligently to find answers and protect the Nation, I was on pins and needles reading how it all played out! I love this series already and can't wait until the next book comes out (SINGULARITY, Fall 2013).
