Tony is bewildered by the horrifying secrets he begins to unravel. Can human heads really be used to predict the future? Who would pay $7 million for the skull of the Russian President? Is British intelligence involved?
His search leads Tony to the wealthy and secretive Chadwick Foundation whose bizarre beliefs both repel and attract him. Are they merely wealthy, powerful people playing an elaborate game, or have they truly gained the power to see into the future? When Tony witnesses the Home Secretary die in an elaborate sex ritual at a Belgravia dinner party he knows he is in too deep to back out.
Dead Secret by Richard Milton is an excellent paranormal thriller about investigative journalist Tony Gabriel and the “science” of physiognomy. I have to say that I was a little skeptical when I read the synopsis of this book. I love paranormal novels and was eager to read this book, but I had my reservations because the storyline seemed a bit far-fetched. Well, I was wrong and this story did not disappoint! Milton is a talented writer and I loved the way he weaved this story.
Tony Gabriel as a character is believable and likable, and overall pretty well-written. As for the other characters in the book Eve was my least favorite, but unpredictable.The narrative goes back and forth between the present day with Tony researching a mysterious organization named The Chadwick Foundation, France in the 1700s, and World War II. Milton did a fantastic job in bringing all these pieces of the story together. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to fans of this genre.
I received this book for free from the author in exchange for my honest review.
