ARC Review: Reviver: A Novel [Hardcover]

I've finished "Reviver" by Seth Patrick.

Product Description

CSI meets The Sixth Sense in this compelling horror/thriller that has already been optioned by the producers of The Dark Knight Returns!

Jonah Miller is a Reviver, able to temporarily revive the dead so they can say goodbye to their loved ones — or tell the police who killed them.

Jonah works in a department of forensics created specifically for Revivers, and he’s the best in the business. For every high-profile corpse pushing daisies, it’s Jonah’s job to find justice for them. But while reviving the victim of a brutal murder, he encounters a terrifying presence. Something is on the other side watching. Waiting. His superiors tell him it's only in his mind, a product of stress. Jonah isn't so certain.

Then Daniel Harker, the first journalist to bring revival to public attention, is murdered. Jonah finds himself getting dragged into the hunt for answers. Working with Harker's daughter Annabel, he becomes determined to find those responsible and bring them to justice. Soon they uncover long-hidden truths that call into doubt everything Jonah stands for, and reveal a sinister force that threatens us all.

My Review:

Jonah Miller is a Reviver one who can revive a dead body for a few minutes to ask them about the moment of death and to have them say goodbye to love ones.  One night when Jonah revives a body a menacing presence appears and venomously says, "I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND I AM COMING FOR YOU!"

This was well written book with some terrifying and exciting thrills.  Very fast paced with interesting characters that are well drawn out.


Thanks St. Martin's Press for sending me this ARC to review, greatly appreciated!
