Book By: Davis Bunn

I’ve enjoyed works co-authored by Davis Bunn in the historical fiction genre. This is the first time I’ve read a contemporary solo work and I quite enjoyed his writing style.

The narrative is easy to follow and readers are pulled in within the first chapter of the story. Vivid descriptions of locations help readers to envision the locales, both in present day and back in the early 1980s. Ethan’s (the main character) inner turmoil is evident and one can sympathize with him.

I expected a contemporary story of a man trying to discover who murdered his brother. What I didn’t expect was a sort of time travel story that was part of a physics experiment. So, this story is speculative in nature – but an excellent story nonetheless. I was totally lost with the physics explanations (mainly because I’m not a scientist! However, I can see how the characters in the story thought it was totally plausible. And it worked for the storyline.

Even though the end was in sight for Ethan, the final page felt like the story ended too abruptly leaving me with questions afterward. After all, won’t things have changed in the future if he goes back and changes them in the past?

If you enjoy speculative fiction, you’ll enjoy Burden of Proof by Davis Bunn.
