A masterfully written thriller, " The Devil's Elixir", is a combination of action packed adventure, with just enough thought provoking science fiction, that leads Sean and Tess on an adventure neither thought possible, with surprises around every corner makes it hard to put down.

Sean's 1 st person dialogue pulls you into his world, you' re not just a reader you' re a part of his every thought, feeling, want, need, and desire. This intimate insight leaves you with a breathless passion and sense of urgency that can only be shared with Sean Reilly and Raymond Khoury.

The Devil's Elixir is yet another disappointment by Ray Khoury and his second book that I put aside before completing (The Sign was the other). He failed to develop the historical connections and related modern day action it should generate that he did so well in The Last Templar and again in Templar Salvation. In fact, it was hard to follow any connection back to the meager historical account he presented in the opening while the modern day story was only a monotonous repetition of police and FBI busts and narco-mob counter actions.

    Not his best work O Bo Not his besst work

    I kept waiting for the action to pick up like it did in his previous books but then i got to the last page and it was over. Still a decent read, just not what i have come to expect from this author.

    Not my favorite, but good read

    I could hardly wait for this book to come out. I anxiously waited, and started reading it, as soon as it came out for nook. THe plot was good, story line well written, but he lost me once the book took a turn with memories. It became unbelievable to me. I finished the book, and gave it 3 stars. I will read Khoury's books again, this one just does not make it to my favorite book list.
