About Absolute Proof
From the number one bestselling author, Peter James, comes an explosive standalone thriller that will grip you and won't let go until the very last page.
Investigative reporter Ross Hunter nearly didn’t answer the phone call that would change his life – and possibly the world – for ever.
‘I’d just like to assure you I’m not a nutcase, Mr Hunter. My name is Dr Harry F. Cook. I know this is going to sound strange, but I’ve recently been given absolute proof of God’s existence – and I’ve been advised there is a writer, a respected journalist called Ross Hunter, who could help me to get taken seriously.’
What would it take to prove the existence of God? And what would be the consequences?
This question and its answer lie at the heart of Absolute Proof, an international thriller from bestselling author Peter James.
The false faith of a billionaire evangelist, the life’s work of a famous atheist, and the credibility of each of the world’s major religions are all under threat. If Ross Hunter can survive long enough to present the evidence . . .
My review of Absolute Proof
Wow, just wow. I LOVED this book. At just shy of 600 pages, I raced through this novel unable to put it down. It has everything. A protagonist that you root for heart and soul, villains galore, car chases, and so many twists and turns with the fast moving narrative that it left me breathless.
The novel revolves around Ross Hunter, an investigative journalist, who is set on the path to prove God's existence following a phone call from a retired academic, Dr. Harry Cooke. This starts a whole string of events, in which follows multiple murders, and Ross fighting for the truth and his life.
Ross is at the heart of this story, and the novel works because of him. He's a likeable guy, a family man who does the right thing and who has strong moral principles He's the boy next door who just happens to be an award winning journalist. I liked him immensely, and I wanted him to keep safe and to succeed in his quest.
The action never stops in this book, and I found myself travelling the world meeting a whole host of interesting and intriguing characters. The boss of the pharmaceutical company who does not believe in God, is cold and calculating, but he fascinated me. The billionaire evangelist was hilarious and conjured up many questions about faith and what it means to each and every one of us.
The search for absolute proof puts Ross in danger, as well as those he loves, but he is determined to find the truth, in the hope that he can save mankind. Whether you believe in God or not, this is a truly exciting and thought provoking book with the deep mystery of faith at its very core. It's a wonderful thriller that will get under your skin. Brilliant!
