The Patmos Deception by Davis Bunn

 Book description from the Baker Publishing Group
An Ancient Island Holds an Ancient Secret . . .Nick Hennessy, a young Texas journalist yearning for his big break, finds himself in Europe--his assignment, to investigate the alarming disappearance of invaluable Grecian antiquities. Nick has the credentials--and cover ID--to unearth the truth. And he knows just the researcher to help him...
Carey Mathers, fresh from her studies in forensic archeology, has accepted a job with the prestigious Athens Institute for Antiquities--a dream come true, really, particularly when the Greek isle of Patmos, where the Apostle John received his vision of the Apocalypse, was a particular focus of her research.
Dimitri Rubinos, for whom the Greek islands represent his life, holds on by his fingernails to the family charter boat business. But his country's economic chaos isn't the only thing that has turned his world on its head...

My review: 
A Christian Fiction Novel by Davis Bunn, full of mystery, danger and romance, the outcomes of which are molded  by Christian faith and values. Informative and in-depth, the story is set in Greece after the crash and tells of historical religious treasures that smugglers are after.  Carey is a forensic archeological specialist, Nick is an investigative journalist, and Dimitri is the owner of a family boat used for fishing and now tourism.  Young people with special talents, pulled into a crisis that hones their skills, faith and trust in others. As in other Davis Bunn novels, you learn about the country and its history, and meet characters with much to teach.  You come to know each of these individuals, their families and their lives, and end up feeling that you are a part of that special group.  A skilled story teller, Davis Bunn has another hit!

I received an advanced copy from Netgalley and Bethany House in return for my honest review.
