I begin work today on Placebo: A Jevin Banks Novel by Steven James. I haven't had the pleasure of reading any of James other books so he's no newbie to the writing scene. Hopefully this book is as good as the stars on Goodreads have suggested. I didn't read the reviews because I like to remain as unbiased as possible when reading and also... there's always that one reviewer who doesn't know the meaning of spoiler alert. That really grinds my gears.
Synopsis: While covertly investigating a controversial neurological research program, expose filmmaker Jevin Banks is drawn into a far-reaching conspiracy involving one of the world's largest pharmaceutical firms. After giving up his career as an escape artist and illusionist in the wake of his wife and sons' tragic death, Jevin is seeking not only answers about the questionable mind-to-mind communication program, but also answers to why his family suffered as they did. Rooted in ground-breaking science and inspired by actual research, "Placebo" explores the far reaches of science, consciousness, and faith.
