Elysium Tide by James R. Hannibal: Book Review

About the book:

Title: Elysium Tide

Author: James R. Hannibal

Genre: Christian Suspense

Release Date: June 7, 2022

Dr. Peter Chesterfield is one of the Royal London Hospital’s top neurosurgeons. He is also a workaholic, ordered by his boss to take a week off to attend a medical symposium at the luxurious Elysium Grand on the island of Maui. While there, Peter pulls a woman with a skull fracture from the water. Though he is able to revive her in the ambulance, she eventually dies in his arms, leaving him with only one clue to what happened to her: the word “honu.”

Increasingly obsessed with discovering the cause of his patient’s death, Peter becomes entangled in an ongoing investigation of a brazen luxury auto theft. He also becomes a source of deep irritation to detective Lisa Kealoha, who has jurisdiction over the case.
But when the two join forces, they begin to uncover a destructive plot that runs far deeper than either of them could have imagined. And if they’re not careful, they’re both going to end up dead.

Award-winning author James R. Hannibal whisks you away to the deadly beauty of Hawaii for a story of greed, violence, and justice that will leave you breathless.

Book Review:

Absolutely dynamic characters and a wonderful backdrop of Hawaii as this story unfolds. I don’t think I’ve ever read a character quite like Peter. Sparks fly between him and Lisa to the point that I wasn’t sure if they would make it to the end of the book. Peter comes out of the gate as arrogant and maybe even ruthless. It’s a bit hard to like him at first, but I had to respect the skill he possessed. His character arc is a perfect complement to the suspense and mystery that unfolds. This is a great, fast-paced novel that twists and turns until you won’t know which way is up but you won’t be able to stop reading. I received a copy of this book through RevellReads. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
