Review: The Mediator by Michael Abayomi

The Mediator by Michael Abayomi 

Pages: 70
Format: ebook
Buy the Book: Amazon  

Amazon: A wealthy businessman is brought back from the grave with dire consequences.

It was supposed to be a straight-forward operation. Ed’s memories had been extracted without any complications. A perfect stranger had been found to play host to those memories. All they had to do was implant Ed’s memories into the brain of the host. But with most novel experiments, things never go according to plan. Not when the perfect stranger turns out to be a homicidal psychopath. Now, Ed is a fugitive, running away from a murder he cannot even remember committing.

Kritters Thoughts:  A little novella that packs quite a punch.  Initially pitched as a science fiction, this book had many elements of a dystopian.  With under 100 pages, this author is able to get the reader hooked on a story and resolve it without missing any pieces.  

From page one, you are swept into this world where there is a sense of elitism and innovative technology that could both help and hinder the human race.  John Davidson, a mediator, or as I would describe him a lawyer/police officer of sorts is caught up with a client from an old case with a new charge.  He must get to the bottom of the mystery, but while uncovering some stones he may find some snakes.

For those who are enjoying the dystopian genre more and more like me - I would suggest picking up this ebook for a quick, light and entertaining read.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
