Review - The Mediator by Michael Abayomi

Title and Author: The Mediator by Michael Abayomi
Publication Date: December 8th, 2011
Publisher: Amazon Digital
Paperback/Hardcover: 66
Genre: Sci-fi

A lawyer’s search for truth and justice makes him a victim of the very same criminal prosecution system he has sworn to serve.
It started with a simple phone call. Next thing John knew, he was meeting with a reporter who claimed to have the information he needed to prove his client’s innocence. But John could not foresee that its pursuit would lead him to the body of the informant, placing him at the scene of the crime and also making him the sole suspect. Now, with a presiding judge who seems dead-set on making an example out of him, John must first prove his own innocence, before he is sentenced to erasure, a form of capital punishment wherein the convict’s memories are completely erased

I received The Mediator from the author in exchange of an honest review.
The Mediator is the short story (novella) of  lawyer  man is set up for murder as he faces danger in order to uncover dark secrets.
When it comes to the characters I though there were quite fascination. I believe the character development could be a little better, though. I understand this is a short story and not everything can be explained but I would have liked to know a little bit more about John’s past and what exactly is a mediator.
I really wanted to see more of the world the author created because it is a very interesting world.
The story is fast paced and action packed and it kept m entertained and curious. It really did left me wanting more
The Mediator is a cross between sci-fi and crime noir and it brings forward some interesting questions like how can the justice system work in a world were all memories can be access and changed?
All in all this book is very interesting and the world created is intriguing.I would have liked it to be a little bit longer so more things could be explained. The book is full of fast-paced action, god characters and is well written.

Rating: Readable (3 Stars)
