Singularity - The Jevin Banks Experience 2 - Steven James

Cover Art

About the book:

Jevin Banks is searching for a killer--and answers to terrifying questions he never even thought to ask.
When his friend is murdered, illusionist Jevin Banks is determined to find out what really happened. Drawn deep into a web of conspiracy and top-secret research on human consciousness, Jevin won't stop digging until the truth is revealed. Soon he uncovers a dark secret that could change the very fabric--and future--of human life on the planet.

Based on frightening scientific realities and bristling with mystery, suspense, and intrigue, Singularity is the riveting sequel to Placebo.

My review:

This is an interesting and different kind of suspense.  I really liked the focus on where advances in science are going and the implications for our world.  It was definitely interesting to think about.  I'm not a big fan of illusionists, but it was interesting to read how some of the tricks are done and the work that goes into a large show and I liked that it wasn't a big focus of the book.  There's a lot of action and I liked how this group of characters worked together to figure out what was happening.  I liked Jevin, but related more to the other characters in the group, especially his girlfriend.  I also really liked the computer expert and her great kids and the quirky conspiracy theorist who distrusts the government.  I haven't read the first book and I did sense I might be missing something relating to the relationships, but the story itself stands alone.  It can get a little descriptive and gross, so just be aware.  If you're looking for suspense that's a little different, check it out!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.

Available November 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
