Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

If you haven’t been reading M.J. Rose’s Reincarnationist series, then THE HYPNOTIST will blow away any excuse you may have had... A memorable, engrossing read, a story that sets a new bar for Rose. Something for everyone: murder, suspense, history, romance, the supernatural, mystery and erotica. These elements are woven together so skillfully that the whole becomes something new and different.... Rose, who never disappoints either her die-hard fans or the casual reader, has surpassed herself.
--Bookreporter.com


The Hypnotist is the very definition of thriller: threats modern and ancient, winding around one of the world's great museums, with a cast of compelling individuals who move through gloriously exotic settings. M. J. Rose tells a story built on the idea that saving love is indistinguishable from saving the world.
-- NYT Bestseller Laurie R. King

Rose's work defies comparison, The Hypnotist so cutting edge that the pages stop just short of slicing your fingers as you race to turn them. She draws us into a world totally of her own making, and the result is a slick, ambitious, and beautifully written tale.
---Providence Journal

Fascinating characters, an incredibly complex plot and a hint of the paranormal make this books simply unforgettable.

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. In this stunning page-turner, Rose's third Reincarnationist novel (after The Memorist), special agent Lucian Glass of the FBI's Art Crime Team continues to pursue Malachai Samuels of the Phoenix Foundation as well as the list of Memory Tools (deep meditation aids that help people access past-life memories) that Malachai covets. After a stolen Matisse painting arrives back at New York's Metropolitan Museum slashed to bits, the thief warns that four more stolen paintings by major artists will be destroyed unless the museum gives him Hypnos, an eight-foot-tall sculpture, which could help a person gain paranormal powers. The Matisse was taken 20 years earlier from the gallery of Andre Jacobs, father of Lucian's first love, Solange, who was killed during the heist. Lucian becomes attracted to Emeline, Andre's niece and adopted daughter, whose mannerisms and facial expressions eerily resemble Solange's. As Lucian recovers previous-life memories, his present life takes ever more shocking turns. This series inspired Fox TV's Past Life, which debuted in February. (May)

Lucian Glass was just a young boy when the woman he loved, Solange, was murdered. Ridden with guilt, Lucian has not been able to forgiven himself for not being able to protect Solange.

Now twenty years later, Lucian works for the FBI as part of the Arts Crime Team. He and the Arts Crime Team are trying to track down the person responsible for destroying priceless works of art. Lucian's investigation brings him to Malachai Samuels. Malachai is a skilled hypnotist and part of a powerful secret society known as the Phoenix Foundation. He is very interested in getting his hands on some very old artifacts called memory tools. Is there a connection between Malachai and Lucian's case?

The Hypnotist is book three in the Reincarnationist series. It can be read as a stand alone novel. I jumped into the middle of this series. My first experience with Ms. Rose was with The Memorist. That was all it took for me to become hooked. At a little over four hundred pages, this book reads like a dream. I started reading this book right before I went to bed. This was not a good idea as I had to force myself to put the book down and get some sleep. Lucian and Malachai are both very strong male leads. There were a few twists that were placed well in the plot. It is easy to see why author, MJ Rose is so fascinated by the subject of reincarnation. Be warned as you will be hypnotized by The Hypnotist.

Format: Hardcover
A priceless sculpture that hides an ancient secret; an FBI investigator haunted by the past; and a terrorist plot involving the theft of magnificent works of art all combine to create THE HYPNOTIST, the unputdownable thriller and third entry in M.J.Rose's superb Reincarnationist series (The Reincarnationist and The Memorist).

No author currently writing in the suspense/thriller category does quite what M.J. Rose does; underpinning her novels is the haunting premise that all of us have past lives that connect us to the present, and within this framework she's conjured a high-stakes world of treacherous business dealings, international intrigue, and the often lethal search for the elusive Memory Tools - objects that can assist people to access their pasts and which, if found and harnessed, could provide their owner with unimaginable power. At the center of this web is Dr Malachi Samuels of the Phoenix Foundation, a gifted yet amoral reincarnation expert who allegedly will stop at nothing to possess the Memory Tools.

These entwined themes are spun throughout the series; however, each novel can be enjoyed on its own merits and The Hypnotist is no exception. When Lucian Glass, FBI criminal art investigator, is called in by the Metropolitan Museum in New York City to investigate the horrific mutilation of a stolen painting, he is plunged into a search for the man who, years ago, destroyed his youth and aspiring career as an artist. His investigation leads him back into the elegant, dangerous milieu of the Phoenix Foundation, where a young girl is being treated for nightmarish visions, and the presence of a mysterious woman who might hold the key to his quest.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Having read the first two books in this series, The Reincarnationist and The Memorist (The Reincarnationist), I must say that though the first two are really very good, this book is the best of the three. The first two kept me interested in continuing the series, but "The Hypnotist" takes it to the next level. It's an excellent read, with a slightly faster pace, and leaves me looking forward to the next book. It was captivating enough that I read the book in one day because I literally did not want to put it down!

The ongoing theme throughout the books is the acquisition of certain "memory tools" that allow the users to see clearly into all of their past lives, thereby proving that reincarnation exists. The problem is that the "tools" are scattered around the world and that no one knows for sure exactly what each tool is, let alone where it is located, or even if it still exists. The search for these tools takes the reader around the globe, as characters search for clues in libraries, old documents, letters and buildings, encountering espionage, murder, theft and a variety of other crimes along the way. Meanwhile, certain characters experience "past life" regressions, both through hypnosis and spontaneously, but only in small segments and though out of context to the character, they are not to the reader. I think what makes this series so enjoyable is that we all would like to think that not only will there be a chance to "do over" past mistakes, but that there is a purpose to our lives.

Format: Hardcover
To some deja vu is more than just a coincidence. It is pieces from our past lives that play an important part on the here, the now and the future.

Lucian lost the love of his life a long time ago and blames himself for not being able to save her. He works for the FBI and the current case has him tracking down a thief. Under hypnosis, Lucian reveals some information that he didn't even know he had. Demands are made and one wrong move could destroy everything.

This is one of those books that take you to another level that you didn't even know existed. We've all heard about reincarnation by M.J. is so talented that her story seems like the first one to ever. Definitely 5 stars!
