On a whole other level, it's a salutory reminder that the 'old days' are never far away if we let fear-full thinking gain a foothold.
Well done for encapsulating so much of a point in a book that takes less than a day to read. Am heading to Budapest next year as it happens and my itinary will be guided by the places in this novella. Big thanks for the history lesson.
I must admit I haven't read a great many novellas, but those I have read have sometimes left me with the impression that something is missing. That `something' might be lack of story, or character depth, or background research, but none of that applies here.
What `One Day In Budapest' delivers is a fast paced narrative which brings this vibrant Eastern European capital to life. Pretty soon we're immersed in a world of murder and intrigue, and as the plot thickens the menacing shadow of fascism looms ever larger.
On the face of it Dr Morgan Sierra and her associate Zoltan Fischer are in a race against time to find a stolen relic, but they soon become embroiled in a darker world altogether, where political machinations are conspiring to ease the re-emergence of far right dictums.
Many will find it quite chilling, and some may argue that the author has overplayed her hand, but scratch beneath the surface of many `respectable' European governments and you will find those who are itching to blame others for their woes... and they're poised to prey on vulnerable targets.
History ought to provide shelter from such extreme philosophies, but the danger that some will forget how frighteningly easy it was for the Nazis to wheedle their way into authority have a timely reminder here.
This story will keep your intrigue and provide unsavoury food for thought. Some of the settings are most vivid and bring the old and the new of Budapest into sharp focus. A Thoroughly rewarding read.
This chilling and pulse- pounding suspense drama brings us to modern day Budapest in a conspiracy where religion and politics intersect. J.F Penn has absolutely created a captivating and well researched fictional tale and has skillfully painted and handled tension and fanaticism to a tee.
I admit not being too enthused with the series after reading “Stone of Fire”, the first book. How wrong was I to think this? The second book I read I became hooked and realised how outstanding Ms. Penn’s writing style is. She subtly weaves into a rich narrative politics, religions and history and keeps us involved from the opening page in non-stop action.
Although the drama may be a fiction and very entertaining it is also educational. “One Day in Budapest” transports us to Budapest to witness the dark side of the city, its sad past and the growing concern in today’s politic atmosphere.
The story starts with the murder at the Basilica of St-Stephen and the Holy Right relic is stolen….the main players are Dr. Morgan Sierra, psychologist and Arkane agent and Zoltan Fischer, a Hungarian Jewish security advisor. Two excellent roles perfectly played. Blood spilled again on the streets of Budapest.
This is the kind of story I've come to expect from Penn--well researched, with a depth of history that really makes it come alive. The plot of One Day In Budapest looks at the possibilities of where right-wing nationalism might lead eastern Europe in the future. Don't be put off by the political references--I'm not a fan of anything highly political but I absolutely loved this.
Although One Day In Budapest is more political than the ARKANE books (which err more towards the supernatural than the political), it features Dr Morgan Sierra from the series. It can be read as a standalone story, however, so if you've never read anything by J.F. Penn, this novella is a great place to start. I'm sure as soon as you've finished reading this, you'll be desperate to get stuck into the ARKANE books!
