Unlimited by Davis Bunn A Review
by Davis Bunn
Simon Orwell is a brilliant student whose life has taken a series of wrong turns. At the point of giving up on his dreams, he gets a call from an old professor who has discovered a breakthrough in a device that would create unlimited energy, and he needs Simon's help.
But once he crosses the border, nothing goes as the young man planned. The professor has been killed and Simon is assaulted and nearly killed by members of a powerful drug cartel.
Now he must take refuge in the only place that will help him, a local orphanage. There, Simon meets Harold Finch, the orphanage proprietor who walked away from a lucrative career with NASA and consulting Fortune 500 companies to serve a higher cause.
With Harold's help, Simon sets out on a quest to uncover who killed the professor and why. In due time, he will discover secrets to both the worldchanging device and his own unlimited potential.

Davis Bunn is a four-time Christy Award-winning, best-selling author who serves as writer-in-residence at Regent's Park College, the University of Oxford, in the United Kingdom.
Defined by readers and reviewers as a "wise teacher," "gentleman adventurer," "consummate writer," and "Renaissance man," his work in business took him to over 40 countries around the world, and his books have sold more than seven million copies in sixteen languages.
Unlimited is a truly interesting novel. I’ve read many of Davis Bunn’s books and find them all very well written. Unlimited is even more so.
From the first page to the last you will be on a rollercoaster of adventure, danger and intrigue. I found this book truly fascinating.
As soon as Simon crosses the border his life takes a very bad turn. One bad thing after another keeps happening to him. He escapes death many, many times.
God brings Simon to a worker from an orphanage and they help him and they know about the professor who Simon worked with.
You will discover in this book that not everyone who seems bad is bad and not everyone who seems good is good. You have to watch out for the wolves in sheep’s clothing. Also the drug cartel will go to any lengths to get what they want. They only care about money and their drugs.
Simon has made many mistakes in his life and wants to make up for them and start over. Find out if he gets a chance to do something for someone that doesn’t help himself and will he be drawn to the Lord by the people at the orphanage.
Very, very good novel. Truly enjoyed reading it. Highly recommended.
