"The Patmos Deception" by Davis Bunn is a superb novel enriched in Greek history. Nick and Carey are two Americans hired to track down missing Greece artifacts that are being stolen from the country. Dimitri is a gorgeous man from Greece that rents his boat for tourism. With the crisis that Greece is going through, it has been turned from a country you would want to visit, but wouldn't want to live there into not even that. The economy is tanked and the government corrupt. Dimitri is hired to move "items" with his boat; items he assumes correctly are stolen. However, things are even worse than Dimitri imagines.
Davis bring Greece to life. The reader feels drawn not only to Greece's history, but it's present as well. The characters are well developed. The ending left things wide open for a series, so hopefully he will feel moved to write that because I am not through with this story! I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House Publishers.
