I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Placebo: A Jevin Banks Novel - Steven James

Placebo: A Jevin Banks Novel"One man must uncover the truth-even when others will stop at nothing to keep it buried.  While investigating a controversial neurological research program, expos√© filmmaker Jevin Banks is drawn into a far-reaching conspiracy involving one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical firms. He seeks answers about the questionable mind-to-mind communication program-and answers to his own family tragedy.  Rooted in groundbreaking science, Placebo explores the far reaches of science, consciousness, and faith. This taut, intelligent, and emotionally gripping new thriller from master storyteller Steven James will keep you flipping pages late into the night." (Publisher's description)

This was my first foray into the novels of Steven James and I must say he can write quite the page turner.  Placebo is an action packed, thrill ride that was rather hard to put down.  The switches of POV throughout the novel was absolutely seamless, some of the best I have ever seen.   My only complaint was that I got lost a few times in all the technology language, but other than that it was a great read.  It will be interesting to see where the next Jevin Banks adventure goes!
