Review of ‘Irrefutable Proof’

Posted on

After finishing a free review copy of Abby L. Vandiver’s Irrefutable Proof, I spent hours trying to decide just exactly what genre it belonged to. It’s billed as a cozy mystery/suspense novel that mixes fact with fiction, but it has a healthy dollop of science fiction tossed in.

Biblical archaeologist Justin Dickerson goes on a perilous journey as she wrestles with whether to share her knowledge of the ancient Book of Knowledge or to keep secret things secret. Dickerson travels the globe searching for irrefutable proof of mankind’s true origins and capabilities.

This book is not exactly a barn-burner. Instead, it’s like the slow flow of volcanic lava or the ice of a glacier – it seems to be barely moving, and suddenly you find yourself submerged and gasping for air. As a mystery fan, I’d like more dialogue, but Vandiver does a good job of making long stretches of narrative interesting. You’ll come away from reading this book questioning everything you’ve ever been taught about the history of humanity.
