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.

By Cheryl Koch VINE VOICE on April 18, 2010
Format: Hardcover
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.

(3.5 stars) The Hypnotist is the 3rd book in the Reincarnationist series. This book focuses on Lucian Glass, a member of the FBI’s Art Crimes division. We get to learn more about his past and how he ended up in the FBI with the revelation that his girlfriend was murdered in her father’s high end art framing shop and Lucian was severely beaten when he walked in on the crime. Lucian’s past is coming back to him when he is pulled into a case where priceless artworks, thought to be lost due to theft, are being held for ransom. The first of these has been cruelly damaged and sent to the museum as a warning. What the criminals want is a an ancient statue, worth nowhere near the value of the other art, except for what it contains which is another memory tool. Another party after the find is the Phoenix foundation member, Dr Malachi Samuels, who has been a nemesis for Lucian. Two lines of inquiry lead Lucian into the realm of reincarnation. Is a woman the reincarnation of his former girlfriend? And does Lucian have a past life that links him to one of the memory tools? Lucian must decide what is truth and what is fiction before the situation gets completely out of hand.

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: Paperback
Art theft is big business, and Lucian Glass should know. He is part of the FBI's crime team, and is investigating some strange happenings, all dealing with items called the Memory Tools. A group of reincarnationists believe that these tools will unlock the mysteries of past lives, and some will stop at nothing to find them. When a large statue called Hypnos is discovered at the Met in New York, it becomes clear that different groups have different reasons for wanting the statue, and nothing will stand in their way of getting it. The situation forces Lucian to deal with his very painful past.

I was concerned that I would be a little lost when reading this book, since it is the third in a series, but I must say, this is an excellent stand alone book. The plot, while complex, is easy to follow, and draws the reader in to the storyline from the very beginning. Past and present are woven together in such fluidity, I never had difficulty seeing how all the pieces fit together, nor questioned the author's technique in changing time settings and narratives throughout the book. It was like a delicate dance, and was executed perfectly.

I never felt as connected to the characters as I would have liked, but I think that this too served a purpose. With a story this complex and intense, a reader cannot get too attached to any character; there just really is not time. I certainly sympathized with many of the characters in the book, some major players and some minor.

I personally am skeptical about metaphysical topics, including reincarnation. I thought the book did a nice job of including metaphysical elements in the story without being over the top.
