A complete change from the last novel from this author,The Venus Fix. This book is almost like a gothic horror with itâ€™s themes of murder, greed, religion and love. The idea of reincarnation is dealt with in a very convincing way, the author has a blog site all about this theme having researched extensively. Fast paced, thought provoking and thoroughly enjoyable. The author also has a website about The Reincarnationist which you can visit by clicking here.
