Book Description

2 Aug 2012

AD 64 - Roman centurion Marcus Domitus leads an expedition to find the mythical treasure hidden deep inside Queen Dido's temple.

AD 1945 - In the confusion and chaos of a burning Berlin, two high-powered Nazis disappear, and so does a precious object.

AD 2009 - Two families are brutally tortured and murdered in Boston and London, the crimes linked by a single name and a shared history.

Art recovery specialist Jamie Saintclair receives a call from a Boston detective, asking for his help to investigate a brutal murder. She believes Saintclair might hold the key to solving the crime through his detailed knowledge of specialist Nazi units. But as they delve deeper into the sinister world of the occult, they uncover a dark secret that men have lusted over for more than two millennia. Long ago, in the ancient temple of Isis, something was stolen, and the repercussions have resonated through the centuries. Saintclair must discover the truth before the curse claims more victims, and finally catches up with him.

5.0 out of 5 stars May you be cursed by the gift of long life 8 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first outing of Jamie Saintclair had me singing his praise as the new man on the block in the world of mystery/thrillers and i was looking forward to The Isis Covenant to move on to greater heights and boy did we fly high.Once again James Douglas uses his passion and quality research to again weave a tale that had me page turning into the early hours of the morning.Saintclair is once again on the trail of a long lost artefact, The Crown of Isis,that was once part of the Treasure of Queen Dido of Carthage, that was reputed to grant its wearer immortality.Saintclair receives an unexpected phone call from Brooklyn detective Danny Fisher.Two families have been brutally murdered,one in New York,the other in London.The only link is a shared name,that of a German art theif who disappeared at the end of war.As Saintclair and Fisher will discover,for the promise of eternal life there are those who would kill and kill again.With The Doomsday Testament James Douglas set the bar high,but with The Isis Covenant he has just raised it again and i for one can not wait to see how high the next Jamie Saintclair adventure will go.

3.0 out of 5 stars quite good fun 4 Sep 2012
There are a few authors who are known for a series or genre but also like to have fun in another area. Douglas Jackson produces excellent novels set in Roman times, but here with a tweak of his name he is having some fun in the ancient relic escapade game.

The tale here is about an ancient relic, The Eye of Isis and it's alleged powers that someone wants to get hold of. Cue dodgy Nazis, an ancient sisterhood, a sinister murderer and so on. Our hero Jamie Saintclair joins up with a female (of course!) FBI agent to avoid various killers and track down the Eye.

The author is having fun here and it would be rude not to just jump on for the ride. Yep you have to suspend belief a little but you do expect to and yes, Saintclair is a little too clever and talented, but there is a plot here and some very good backstory set in WW2 Berlin. Initially it felt very much run of the mill but the backstory kind of saved it and drew me in to keep turning the pages. Reminded me a bit of James Becker's stuff which is quite similar and it's a style and book that you have to go with the flow on, and just enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sooooo Very Good 1 Aug 2012

The second in this series of books based around art recovery expert Jamie Sinclair. Book one the Doomsday testament The Doomsday Testament was a massive and wonderful surprise. There are so many thrillers of this type on the market but so many fall short of being a great thriller. Something of the quality of an early Jack Higgins WW2 thriller. Doomsday Testament was an equal to those books and doubly so because it was a debut thriller.
Great debuts are always a double edged sword, is it a flash in the pan? can it be equalled or beaten by book two?
Thankfully for me, you and James Douglas yes he can equal it, in fact it beats book one for suspense, action, adventure, intrigue and story.

As in doomsday testament, the Isis Covenant blends the modern world with World War 2, add in a nice dose of Ancient history with the central aim being the recovery of the Crown of Dido. A legendary item hunted by Tyrants through the ages for its alleged ability to hold the answer to life/ Death.
Our Hero Jamie has a price on his head, is it from his recent past and his butting heads with the remnants of the Nazi Regime? Who is the evil force killing people in such a gruesome fashion? What are they looking for? will they find it? and if they do what terrifying outcome will come to pass? I'm not giving away the plot, you need to buy the book to find out. But its Sooooo worth doing so.

As with book one the characters are so well written, so real and alive and this is no surprise because James Douglas is the pseudonym of one of my favourite historical writers none other than Douglas Jackson. Writer of so many fantastic books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly enjoyable 16 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is immediately gripping and moves from chapter to chapter - a serious page turner.
Some of the premise is totally unbelievable ( and never truly followed up) but I can't mention it as it would be a major spoiler alert.
Nonetheless if you suspend belief as you would in a Dan Brown book- it's entertaining and enjoyable.

However I found the last few chapters too unbelievable - in that a major character suddenly acts completely against type.
To do this to make the plot work was a step too far for me.
Also - I found the conclusion feeble and disappointing.
I felt almost as if there were a final chapter of explanations missing.

I don't mean to say it isn't a good engaging read to that point - just that the ending let me down.
That is only my view and you may enjoy the ending.
On that basis I would recommend it to a friend, but with reservations.
