Placebo By Steven James  for Revell Books



Book Blurb

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.


My Thoughts On This Book

I think Placebo is much different that other books by Steven James, but I did enjoy this book because I enjoy medical fiction. But it did take me a number of chapters just to get into the story. And I really didn’t enjoy the beginning of the book where Jevin Banks’ van is found in the lake with his wife and their two boys in it, and word is that it is not an accident. The death of children is difficult to deal with, and it was a sad way to start a book, for me anyway.  


After the first several chapters, the story picks up and is more interesting. The characters were very unique, they were believable, and they play their part so well as the story unfolds. There is so much going on in this story, so many twists and turns that you will keep reading to the very end. So if you are looking for a thriller that is full of suspense, drama, tension, and a little romance to boot, then you will enjoy Steven James’ Placebo. I encourage you to pick up a copy for your own enjoyment and entertainment. You will be glad you did!
