Hey lovely readers!
Today’s post is a book review of Arcam (DCI Robson Book 1) by Jason Minick. I was asked by the author to provide an honest review of this book. Okay let’s get started!
“DCI Jack Robson believes he is hunting a kidnapper…
Away from his posting in London, Robson is asked to lead an investigation in the south west of England. But what begins as a baffling local kidnapping mystery, quickly escalates into something far more sinister. In pursuit of the perpetrators, DCI Robson joins forces with Inspector Emma Wilson and the rest of the regional CID team. Together, they attempt to make sense of the lack of evidence or motive, eventually getting drawn to the tiny island of Steep Holm, in the Bristol Channel. As the investigation progresses, Robson, Wilson and their colleagues find themselves facing something far beyond normal detective work. Unthinkable connections lead them to a conspiracy, so great it could change the course of humanity. The question is, can they intervene before it’s too late to prevent the appalling future that potentially lies ahead…”
I can sum up my feelings about this book in one word, wow. And I mean wow in a very good way. Honestly I had no expectations of this book. And I don’t mean that in a bad way, it’s just that I had no idea if I would like this or not. But this was such a unique thriller and I’m so happy I got the chance to read and review it.
I won’t give any plot away because I don’t want to ruin it, but I will say that it keeps you on the edge of your seat. I loved that the story was a thriller mixed with a mystery and even had a very subtle hint of romance. I really enjoyed Jack as a character, I liked his voice if that makes sense. His presence in the book really leaps off the page. This book really had everything I enjoy about thrillers and I’m very excited for book number 2! The contrasting scenes really added something special and I found myself really invested in Jack’s story. If you’re looking for a new thriller you should definitely read this one!
Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! <3 Adrianna
