REVIEW The Scopas Factor

FREE READ × The Scopas Factor Ago from St Kitts hoping to put everything behind him But his girlfriend Diana has other plans and although he has no interest in the job opportunity she presents him in a small northern California town no less he wants to please her Upon his arrival in Weedley he's caught up in a kidnapping and two murders A visit to Di. Vincent Panetierre s novel The Scopas Factor is an exhilarating and fast paced thriller novel that is an overall enjoyable read thanks to a one of a kind and multi level plot The story primarily follows Michael Hegan a Chicago based police detective who finds himself unexpectedly entangled in an international and multi generational intrigue Hegan is supported in the story by a motley crew of fascinating and enigmatic characters who weave in and out of story lines to create an absorbing web of mystery Panettiere s novel is entertaining to read and merits four stars due to its uniue and innovative plot and the thrilling surprises that Panettiere skillfully pulls out at every turn but it does have some areas where it could improve and become a truly amazing workPanetierre s novel begins with an instantly absorbing scene in a Thai refugee camp in 1990 where readers will be struck by Panettiere s poetic writing style and beautiful descriptions of nature and people The novel then switches gears to the present with police detective Michael Hegan and his spirited companion Diana as they travel from Chicago to rural California for a possible job interview Through a series of peculiar events Hegan soon finds himself halfway across the world in southern France following a dangerous trail of a lost artwork that many are willing to kill and die for In France he finds much mystery and danger than he ever could have anticipated and readers will happily tag along with Hegan as he dives deeper and deeper into the world of international criminals Admittedly the twists and turns that the story takes are highly unlikely and reuire readers to stretch their minds beyond a reasonable belief but no one wants to read about regular run of the mill lives anyway do they Just accept that you will never find yourself in the same small French town with a gorgeous Laotian American woman who will fall instantly in love with you and is a fabulous chef to boot and enjoy the ride The Scopas Factor excels by creating a uniue and complex story unlike anything I ve ever read before At some points it feels reminiscent of other popular thriller and mystery novels but Panettiere does not fall into the trap of clich s and gotchas as many others do He keeps the plot fast paced fascinating and surprising with never a dull moment on any page The three hundred pages of The Scopas Factor fly by and as I whisked to the end I was disappointed that it had come to an end but glad to reach the conclusion of such an exhilarating workWhere the Scopas Factor could improve would be by spending time developing its central characters Panettiere spends the most time with the star Michael Hegan but even after reading the novel in its entirety I felt as if I only knew Hegan on a superficial level Hegan s romantic relationships felt eually superficial and I struggled to believe the passion in the scenes that Panettiere wrote The novel contains many fascinating supporting characters my favorites include maneater Alexis mysterious Yvette and the ever hilarious ever British Thornie but their personalities felt only skin deep In spite of that though I think that The Scopas Factor is a worthwhile and uniue read that is sure to entertain
