I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Investigative reporter Ross Hunter nearly didn’t answer the phone call that would change his life – and possibly the world – for ever.
‘I’d just like to assure you I’m not a nutcase, Mr Hunter. My name is Dr Harry F. Cook. I know this is going to sound strange, but I’ve recently been given absolute proof of God’s existence – and I’ve been advised there is a writer, a respected journalist called Ross Hunter, who could help me to get taken seriously.’
What would it take to prove the existence of God? And what would be the consequences?
This question and its answer lie at the heart of Absolute Proof, an international thriller from bestselling author Peter James.
The false faith of a billionaire evangelist, the life’s work of a famous atheist, and the credibility of each of the world’s major religions are all under threat. If Ross Hunter can survive long enough to present the evidence . . .
I first heard about Absolute Proof when I watched an episode of Pointless featuring Peter James and Martina Cole and heard James talking about how the book came about. Ever since then, I’ve been desperate to read it and when I finally got my hands on a copy I was delighted! With the Pointless episode, the book’s synopsis and absolutely stunning cover, I had really high hopes for Absolute Proof but even so, it exceeded all of my expectations!
The plot is exciting and action packed while at the same time really thought provoking, no matter which angle you’re coming at it from.
James writes with a skill that draws you into this absorbing thriller right from the start and doesn’t let you go. From this book alone, it’s easy to see why Peter James is best seller!
For me it was a very different experience to the books from James’ Roy Grace series that I’ve read, but as a standalone, it’s meant to be different and that’s not to say it wasn’t just as good. In fact, I think purely based on how much I enjoyed reading it, it just tips the balance towards being better!
Overall, I’m giving Absolute Proof 5 out of 5 and adding it to my five-star favourites shelf! It’s tense, perfectly paced and totally riveting. I loved it!
