Book Review: The Hypnotist by M.J. Rose

The Hypnotist is the third book of the Reincarnationist series by M.J. Rose.

Book Description

Haunted by his inability to stop the murder of a beautiful young painter twenty years ago, Lucian Glass keeps his demons at bay through his fascinating work with the FBI's Art Crime Team. Investigating a crazed collector who's begun destroying prized masterworks, Glass is thrust into a bizarre hostage negotiation that takes him undercover at the Phoenix Foundation—dedicated to the science of past-life study. There, to maintain his cover, he submits to the treatment of a hypnotist.

Under hypnosis, Glass travels from ancient Greece to nineteenth-century Persia, while the case takes him from New York to Paris and the movie while the case takes him from New York to Paris and the movie capital of the world. These journeys will change his very understanding of reality, lead him to question his own sanity and land him at the center of perhaps the most audacious art heist in history: a fifteen-hundred-year-old sculpture the nation of Iran will do anything to recover.

While The Hypnotist is the third book in the Reincarnationist series, this is the first book in the series I have read. The Hypnotist was stand alone enough for me to not miss out by not having read the previous two.

The Hypnotist was an intriguing thriller. I enjoyed the museum setting, and I found the past life exploration to be a unique premise.

If you enjoy thrillers and especially works by M.J. Rose, The Hypnotist is a good read for you to check out. I plan to continue reading the series with the next Reincarnationist installment.

6/10: Good Read
