5.0 out of 5 stars Its magic, 16 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Masks of Venice (Kindle Edition)
Two ladies about forty and retaining good looks set out to discover what they may have missed in life. They seek the so-called magic of Venice. Will it live up to its name? A masked ball sets things off. Here there are powerful lusty men, and women who admire power and wish to be seduced. It seems by focussing on certain paintings one may have a passionate affair set hundreds of years ago and interacting with history, evil cardinals, and so on.The author does not shrink from tasteful descriptions of the physical. If about to, say, die one can return to the present by locating the right painting. Somehow there is a corresponding man awaiting. Stuart Hoggar

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying murder mystery, 2 Nov. 2011
At first sight this novel appeared to wear its considerable erudition heavily, and so would be a rather demanding read. Specifically, there is much about the 1960s France background of the main characters, mostly English speaking non-natives. But as the story proceeds one is carried along by the adventure.
Anders Hecht has been greatly admired as advocate of revolution, but is racked with guilt that he found himself unable to live up to his early promise. Two main women in his life seem to both love him and hate him. One of these women turns out to possess two personalities ignorant of each other. Eventually they are murdered, but by whom. A subtle detective has an interesting series of conversations with the main characters, and others. Way ahead of myself he homes in on the true murderer, and all falls satisfyingly into place. Note: if this novel were a film it would require an age 18 certificate! But all is handled expertly by the author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but is it right?, 25 Nov. 2010
This book looks well-presented but my confidence in it was dented when I picked up three errors in a few pages I looked at.
1 It states that Martin's father was a prosperous silver miner. Actually it was copper, which made it more of a sacrifice to send Young Martin to school.
2. It states he was trained in law. Well, he was for two months before he left to become a monk. A wrong impression is created.
3. It says he prayed to God when in the storm, actually he prayed to St Anna, the patron saint of miners. This is a theological difference.
