Rare Earth by Davis Bunn book review and giveaway
I love Davis Bunn's books. I usually like to just read historical fiction, but Davis is such a talented writer that I get sucked right in. Rare Earth is a stand alone novel, but the second book to use Marc Royce as the main character. I also enjoyed his book Lion of Babylon the first book.
Rare Earth is set in Kenya Africa, Marc Royce has worked for the state department in clandestine assignments, most recently in Iraq. He is a Christian man who lost his wife four years ago and he uses his faith in his work, depending on God's guidance to survive.
He needs to find out what happened to the brother of Kitra, an Isreali medical administrator who has secrets of her own. There are sparks between Kitra and Marc, but can they act on their feelings? Can they trust each other? Can their faith bring them together? This part of the novel is just in the background.
The main subject is why are African tribes being pushed off their land? Who killed Serge, Kitra's brother? Is Lodestone, a company for hire for humanatarion resources, corrupt and behind all the killings and thievery? It is Marc's job to find out.
I highly recommend reading this book, it is perfect for a man or a woman. My husband would love this book. Davis does a lot of research on his books
