The Fragment Review


By Benjamin H. Liles

It is 1923, after the events of World War I in which Paris is rebuilding. Muriel Ross is Tom Bryant's personal aide in helping to bolster their walk of faith. Charles Fouchet is a war veteran sworn to protect Muriel Ross and Tom Bryant no matter the cost.

Muriel Ross, a young woman in the employ of the Smithsonian Institute, is being hosted by U.S. Sentaor Tom Bryant in Paris. Her expertise in reliquaries, ancient artifacts, is of import to him. She is also an avid photographer who loves taking pictures of real life. And it is this reason the Caliph in Constantinople needs her help in making sure their reliquary is in fact the right one.

The Fragment is fraught from start to finish with high stakes, non-stop action mixed with heart pounding action. It is the second book by Davis Bunn following his previous book The Pilgrim.

I give this book a five star rating due to the fact it's well written, and it's based on actual history of the Ottoman Empire.

Davis Bunn has authored books with sales over seven million copies translated into twenty languages for twenty-four years. Bunn's book Lion of Babylon was named Best Book of the year in 2011. The follow up, Rare Earth, won Bunn his fourth Christy Award for Excellence in Fiction in 2013.
