From the opening pages, Simon Toyne hooks the reader with the enigmatic figure of Solomon Creed and his atmospheric depiction of the desert landscape. He then plays with us like a true master, ending each chapter on a cliff hanger, shifting perspectives between key characters and centuries old secrets, steadily upping the ante on both the threat and execution of violence. And yet despite some truly brutal characters and scenes, I found myself caring about the far-from perfect cop Morgan and even feeling a twinge of sympathy for the terrifying gang leader Tio, which to me is the sign of a truly great writer. But most of all I cared about Solomon Creed. Like the widow he tries to help, I found myself trusting him. Following him. Compelled by him, even though there is little evidence to suggest that he is good. This book has been compared to Lee Child and others in the crime genre, but I think Simon Toyne is operating on a much broader canvas. His story raises the same fundamental questions that Solomon Creed asks himself at the beginning of the novel: who am I, where am I , why am I here? The answers the book suggests have led some to criticise the introduction of 'supernatural' elements to the thriller genre. I disagree. These are the same themes that drew readers to his SANCTUS series and that truly drive us all. These are the big issues that big thrillers should be tackling and lucky for us, Simon Toyne has the skill and confidence to deliver a truly satisfying and thought-provoking read.
I am not going to encapsulate the plot, or give anything away; but would like to mention the author has a wonderful way of weaving the story, drawing you, the reader, in so you want to turn those pages quickly and see how it unfolds. But, I would expect no less from this author as his Sanctus trilogy was an interesting and exciting read from start to finish, making the reader want to move from one book straight into another.
There is so much scope for this series, so many ways it can evolve. Small clues are being thrown out, little nuggets of information to squirrel away. I look forward to the following books to get to know more of Solomon Creed.
A very good story, I was expecting this as I have read the Sanctus trilogy, which i enjoyed.
This novel is a good strong story with a nod to the past and a touch of the unexplained / supernatural.
I was interested to read a Simon Toyne book after watching him on the television on his show - Written in blood which is brilliant.
