The Amethysts

Nicholas Newman discovers an unexpected link to her death in a Hungarian couple's photo a s. Intriguing and disturbing this novel pulled you into an exotic plot about psychology murder and the Holocaust Written with style and panache the characters were interesting and uniuely drawn from the detective to the mysterious foreign couple who insidiously wile their way into the storyteller s life I ve already ordered up the next two books in the series but it would have helped if I hadn t left the bleeding book in a London Hotel when I was about three uarters of the way through Needless to say I bought another copy to find out how it all ended

During a holiday to recover from the brutal death of his lover Madeleine English architect. My thoughts reading this were that it would perhaps make a compulsive and cohesive film than it does a book It has a strong plot but I found the characters weak and didn t really care about their collective fate Rather than sympathising with Nicholas for having to deal with the horrors of the present and past murders I felt all he did was complain Delaney didn t write much by way of humility into Nicholas Newman s character His personal revelations towards the end are self involved and hollow as though the story had come full circle but a few characters shortThere are two other novels with Newman as the main protagonist and I probably will read them I just hope Delaney doesn t waste such a good story on bland unlikable characters and tedious narrative I d like to think that a film version would be sympathetic to the story and hopefully true to Delaney s intentions

    The blurb on this book is not really that inspiring however I gave it a shot due to the whole Nazi element and everyone including me loves a good bit of Nazi intrigueIt starts off slow continues slow and sort of plods along till the end of the book comes which leaves you a little well let down I don't entirely know how I envisaged things ending but when I reached the end I really felt no emotional involvement at all in the stor
