Anybody here interested in the afterlife? I sure am, hence my love for this next book. Not a fan? No problem! I still have a juicy thriller you.
The Medium by David Hatton introduces us to Michael Walker whose wife, Suzanne, is missing. Michael is approached by a psychic medium claiming to know the whereabouts of his missing wife. However, as somebody who has based his entire existence on scientific fact, he has to choose whether to believe the medium or now. And is she everything she claims?
I thought this was a fantastic story! Not only do I love thrillers, I love stories about the afterlife so this book ticked all the right boxes for me.
If you are a skeptic about all this psychic, you can still enjoy this story. It isn’t one which pushes this gift as something real, but neither does it dismiss it as a scam. Throughout the book I tours between whether Jackie was the real deal or not. The conclusion, well, I can’t spoil that now, can I?
The twists and turns of The Medium don’t stop with psychic abilities. We still have the matter of where is Suzanne and whether she is dead or alive. Now, I’ve read lots of books that follow along this same vein (albeit minus psychic abilities) so one would think that I was able to see what was coming. Nope. While I had my suspicions, it has me guessing until the end and I was indeed shocked by the outcome.
I think it was the characters that made the story though. There was some great character development and absolutely no one-dimensional figures. To have their personalities unravel before me was as shocking as finding out what happened Suzanne. All I will say is that betrayal is a heavy theme in this book.
Overall, I loved The Medium and I’m so glad to have had the chance to review it. Absolutely looking forward to reading what else this author has to offer.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
