Elixir: A Novel

by Davis Bunn

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


"In Elixir, Davis Bunn drops the “T” and plays hardball as he presents his newest suspense novel. Action begins immediately when the thrill of surfing turns deadly as bullets plunge into the waves. Taylor Knox isn’t surprised by the shooter – he knew the job would be dangerous when he accepted it. But his surfing buddy also appears to know what’s going on, and that’s bad. Especially since his 'friend' is the only person close enough to help, and Taylor can only hide underwater until he needs another breath.

"Rewind nine days. The small pharmaceutical company Taylor works for is about to be taken over by Revell, a mega-company owned by a family who hates him. Then the CEO, Amanda Revell, gives Taylor a quest – find her missing younger sister, the woman Taylor still loves, and he can keep his job and gain three million dollars in Revell stock. Dangerous men dog Taylor’s every move as he begins a journey not only to Europe, but the secret places of his soul.

"Complex characters, exotic locations, and dry humor only add to the pull of this thrilling novel. If you start this book without setting aside time to finish it, prepare to lose some serious sleep." -- Katie Hart, Christian Book
