BOOK REVIEW: THE REINCARNATIONIST
BY M.J. ROSE

We hope you enjoy this book review by Teri Davis.



Reincarnation has always been a controversial issue in religious circles. However, what if you have memories of living in a previous time? What then? You obviously can’t tell anyone. Do you go to a psychiatrist or a priest? And worse yet, neither one believe you?

Josh Ryder is the victim of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. He is working as a photographer for an archaeological did near Rome when he is hurt from a terrorist bomb explosion. As he recovers, he is discovering that he remembers things that he personally did not experience during his lifetime. These “visions” are not controllable or always convenient for his career or his personal life. This little distraction definitely makes life more challenging for Josh.

While at a dig in Rome uncovered are the skeletal remains of a woman in a tomb. Preliminary assumptions are that this is possibly a Vestal Virgin and the box that she is carrying could contain the actual gems that legend believes allow others to discover their reincarnated selves. As an archeologist carefully unearths the find, Josh is to photograph the discoveries. Instead he is mysteriously drawn to the wall and immediately digs into it discovering a small tunnel. He begins the insatiable urge to frantically go into it and explore. Josh eventually gets so far inside, that he is unable to turn around and is forced to back out. Meanwhile, the professor who is excavating the woman with the box is shot while someone successfully steals that gems inside the box.

For 500 pages, this book reads quickly. It almost never breathes and feels as if you are holding your breath as the story develops. The characters are believable and likable. The intertwining of the past with the present is masterfully done. It’s a historical novel inside a fictional/ suspenseful one.

M.J. Rose has written numerous fictional novels and with another author wrote two novels about marketing. She is a board member and the founding member of International Thriller Writers. She is also the founder of AuthorBuzz.com which is a marketing company for authors.
