The Karma Code by Daniel Davidsohn is a story of intrigue, murder, and unravelling the secret surrounding the Karma Code, an experimental operation that sees those seeking to use it for illicit purposes hunting down and killing any who stand in their way. It seems the only one who can prevent the Karma Code falling into the wrong hands is Candice, who hires investigator Harry Walker to help her in her quest to find her uncle’s killer, her uncle having been the first person to be murdered as the secret experiment begins to be revealed. However, Harry’s involvement turns from seeking the truth to protecting the person who hired him as corrupt figures in authority seek to extract from Candice the key to the Karma Code.
Well written, fast paced, and intriguing, this story keeps the reader in suspense as the mystery unfolds. The character of Harry is believable and the reader has empathy for him as he enters a rollercoaster of a ride which he is not quite as equipped to handle as his employer had thought. There is also a little touch of romance woven in at the end to enhance the conclusion, but not so much as to detract from the storyline and intrigue. The Karma Code is unusual and unexpected, but the characters involved in its development are believable, which gives the whole story credence. A well thought out and well planned story that was enjoyable to read, and with characters such as Harry that could conceivably have more adventures in the future.
