Lucian Glass was just a young boy when the woman he loved, Solange, was murdered. Ridden with guilt, Lucian has not been able to forgiven himself for not being able to protect Solange.
Now twenty years later, Lucian works for the FBI as part of the Arts Crime Team. He and the Arts Crime Team are trying to track down the person responsible for destroying priceless works of art. Lucian’s investigation brings him to Malachai Samuels. Malachai is a skilled hypnotist and part of a powerful secret society known as the Phoenix Foundation. He is very interested in getting his hands on some very old artifacts called memory tools. Is there a connection between Malachai and Lucian’s case?
The Hypnotist is book three in the Reincarnationist series. It can be read as a stand alone novel. I jumped into the middle of this series. My first experience with Ms. Rose was with The Memorist. That was all it took for me to become hooked. At a little over four hundred pages, this book reads like a dream. I started reading this book right before I went to bed. This was not a good idea as I had to force myself to put the book down and get some sleep. Lucian and Malachai are both very strong male leads. There were a few twists that were placed well in the plot. It is easy to see why author, MJ Rose is so fascinated by the subject of reincarnation. Be warned as you will be hypnotized by The Hypnotist.
