Book Review: The Trespass

By Scott Hunter
Myrtle Villa Publishing
Publishing Date: Mar 31 2011
ISBN: 0956151078
Genre: Mystery, Thriller

Amazon Synopsis:

Anthropologist Simon Dracup knows that his only hope of finding her alive lies within the pages of his grandfather's diary, the record of a near century old expedition to Mount Ararat, legendary resting place of the great Ark of Noah.

When the CIA pays him a visit Dracup learns that something was found on the Ark. Something priceless. Now its owners have taken it back, but they want revenge and Dracup is their prime target . . . 

Dracup finds himself plunged into a desperate battle for survival as he hunts for evidence that will lead him to the sinister Korumak Tanri, but even he could not have predicted the shocking truth about the mysterious cult and the ancient secret they are sworn to protect . . .

'The Trespass' is a gripping, fast-paced novel that asks serious questions about the nature of our existence.

My Thoughts:

If you like riddles and puzzles, you will enjoy trekking along with Simon Dracup and he seeks to solve the mystery that his grandfather left for him in his diary. He finds out that his grandfather actually located Noah’s ark, and found something of great worth on it. The Korumak Tanri, an ancient cult sworn to protect this valuable artifact will do anything to keep it secret. Dracup needs to find this prize in order to save his daughter. And while the CIA appears to want to help him, Dracup knows that his daughter is not their first priority, the artifact is…. And his daughter is expendable.

I enjoyed the fast pace of this novel. It has an intriguing premise (which I won’t mention or it will spoil the book for you if you haven’t read it yet). If you are looking biblical accuracy, you won’t find it in this book, but it’s a great “what if”. This book did a great job of holding my attention and it kept me wondering what was coming next. There's lots of action in it and a number of plot twists. It'll keep you guessing!

There was some swearing in the book, so if that offends you, you might not want to read this one.

Realistic or not, this book was a good read. I give this book 4 stars. 

I would definitely pick up another of Scott Hunter’s books.
