May you be cursed by the gift of long life
on 8 August 2012
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.
