    1 thought on “The Devil's Elixir

    1. Reading Raymond Khoury s The Devil s Elixir can be hazardous to your sleep cycle You won t be able to put the book down until you reach the last page.Once again, Khoury pairs up FBI agent Sean Reilly and archeologist Tess Chaykin whom long time Khoury fans already know from their tangled and dangerous destinies in The Last Templar and The Templar Salvation In this high energy thriller, Reilly and Chaykin shift their focus from Templar and Vatican mysteries to a potentially dangerous secret extr [...]

    2. Most novelists with robust sales in their rear view mirror stick rigidly to the tried and true format that earned them their past successes In the highly competitive arena that is modern fiction book publishing there s nothing inherently wrong with a writer clinging tightly to formula, particularly when that formula has resonated with readers and the people cutting his royalty checks It happens all the time So it s both noteworthy and laudable when an author with Raymond Khoury s estimable track [...]

    3. I actually loved the first book in the series, The Last Templar with its shifts between the ancient and current stories Plus the TV miniseries was nice, even though there were quite a few changes in the conversion The second book was interesting too, but much action oriented than is common to the ancient treasure genre And then, this book continues the same trend, and belongs a lot to the pure action genre than the previous books I strongly believe I would have enjoyed this as a standalone boo [...]

    4. I know Khoury mostly from his historical fiction He has written several books in the genre and while they aren t the best of the category, they are often diverting and enjoyable This book, about a mystic belieiving drug dealer intent on revenge for past deeds and in search of the perfect and perfectly addicting synthetic drug, wasn t his best work.It was a quick and easy read a beach read if you will , but it didn t really grab or hold my attention The characters didn t ring true and parts of th [...]

    5. I won an ARC of this book Having never read any books by Mr Khoury, I can say this, I will be reading his other works WOW, what a read Kept me on the edge of my seat So much action it was almost hard to keep up Loved all the characters, even the evil ones Would nt have been good without them The story line was interesting in itself Made you think about it If his other books are as good as this one, then I will definitely enjoy them Won t discuss story line because if you have read his books befo [...]

    6. I first came across Raymond Khoury when I became incredibly interested in Templar history, and since his debut historical thriller, The Last Templar took historical fact and turned into a piece of action packed fiction, well I couldn t really resist could I That and its sequel were extremely entertaining, and when I heard that a third book in the series was to be released, featuring indefatigable FBI agent Sean Reilly and Archaeologist Tess Chaykin once , I instantly pre ordered it.The third boo [...]

    7. Fast paced thriller A maniacal Mexican drug lord is the centerpiece of the story Early into the book we get a big revelation about Agent Reilly The inerplay between Tess and Reilly is nice, some loose ends in Reilly s story are left for later.

    8. This book started off as a sort of abridged version of Don Winslow s Power of the Dog, with a lot of FBI and DEA vs drug kingpins backstory and then went off in a mystical direction before coming back down to earth I wasn t a huge fan of the writing style but once I got used to it, I did end up zooming through many of the action sequences, especially toward the end I picked this book up based solely on the jacket copy, which maybe isn t the best way to choose reading material because the first t [...]

    9. The Devil s Elixir by Raymond Khoury, published by Dutton.Category Mystery ThrillerSean Reilly receives a frantic phone call from Michelle Martinez asking for assistance Her young son, Alex, and she have just thwarted an attempt to abduct them She has no where to turn to other than Sean who as an FBI Agent worked with her on a drug bust years ago in Mexico Michelle also informs Sean that Alex is his son.The drug bust in Mexico was unique in that they were trying to rescue a scientist who was bei [...]

    10. I have read every one of Raymond Khoury s books, and I have truly enjoyed them all The most current one, The Devil s Elixir is fascinating as it addresses so many different things going on in the scientific world today, in addition to the touching upon pharmaceutical companies trying to develop statin drugs from plants in the I found the last few chapters especially fascinating because of the attention the author gave to research into reincarnation, which is not as out there as it once was Of co [...]

    11. A really good read Great story, interesting characters, lots of suspense, a very unusual twist and turn to the tale one I never imagined.but, for me the best part was the synchronicity I write about all things energetic, all things metaphysical and this adventure mystery tale has a surprise for its readers as the solution to the mystery lies in the realm of metaphysics I won t say any for fear of revealing too muchSuffice it to say, for all you out there, who enjoy a good mystery and who are in [...]

    12. This book is up to Raymond Khoury s usual brilliant standard I first came across FBI agent Sean Reilly and his partner, Tess Chaykin, in his book The Last Templar and, as on that occasion, I was hooked from the very beginning of the book There are several unexpected twists as this resourceful couple pit their wits against the enemy and the suspense is sustained until the very end of the book Although you know that in the end, good must win out against evil, there is always that little doubt An e [...]

    13. The Devil s Elixir delivers as promised in the suspense thriller genre with little character development or sense of atmosphere The rapidly shifting, multiple POV mixed with the first person account of the protagonist makes for a jarring narrative at first, but the breakneck action scenes and brutal violence propel the plot forward at a frenetic pace to a satisfying conclusion Great beach read

    14. I really loved this book I read two of his books with the Sean and Tess characters and really enjoyed their growth The characters fit well with this new story without weakening the characters and I have found that to be something I look for in an author I am looking forward to any books that Khoury may write about with these characters.

    15. Drugs, drug lords, the FBI, scientists being kidnapped, old flames resurfacing, murder and rainforest tribes.a thrilling combination that makes for a fast paced read that is hard to put down Each chapter alternates between characters in the story, with bits and pieces coming together in the end reaching a twisting plot line that will keep you guessing right up to the end

    16. I could not put this book down I wanted to keep reading on to see what happened to all the characters This is the second book by Raymond Khoury that I m reading I ve really enjoyed both books.

    17. Great author, this book had me on the edge of my seat I would end a chapter, try to put the book down, but had to know the charactersWe re ok and could continue their mission.

    18. The book grabs you from the first few pages and doesn t let you go until you ve finished it Excellent read and a scary thought that a drug like this could be made.

    19. Wow I really enjoyed this book it had many twists and turns Definitely keeps you engrossed can t wait for the next book

    20. Loved this book Its filled with great fight scenes, twists and turnsI seriously didn t see the big twist at the end Fabulous read

    21. I loved it The final twist with Corliss and not the insider I thought it was essentially creating the nightmare for Reilly was a bit of an eye opener Well worth the time spent.

    22. Non stop action for sure The only things that actually stopped my constant page turning were the technical terms and a few gory details Other than those, I couldn t stop reading
