Kurzbeschreibung

22. November 2005
Hailed by Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code) for his "utterly consuming" suspense fiction, New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles melds forensic detail with penetrating insight into the heart of a killer in a southern town.

Some memories live deep in the soul, indelible and dangerous, waiting to be resurrected....Forensic expert "Cat" Ferry is suspended from an FBI task force when the world-class odontologist is inexplicably stricken with panic attacks and blackouts while investigating a chain of brutal murders. Returning to her Mississippi hometown, Cat finds herself battling with alcohol, plagued by nightmares, and entangled with a married detective. Then, in her childhood bedroom, some spilled chemicals reveal two bloody footprints...and the trauma of her father's murder years earlier comes flooding back. Facing the secrets of her past, Cat races to connect them to a killer's present-day violence. But what emerges is the frightening possibility that Cat herself has blood on her hands....

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intensiv! 1. Juni 2005
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Blood Memory war das erste Buch, das ich von Greg Iles gelesen habe und ich werde Weitere lesen! Es fällt mir schwer das Buch als großartig zu bezeichnen, weil das dem unterliegenden Thema Kindesmissbrauch nicht gerecht wird. Aber es ist unglaublich fesselnd und hat mich auch nachdem ich es beendet hatte nicht losgelassen. Iles tastet sich behutsam an ein schweres und bedrückendes Thema ran, verzichtet dabei aber auf schwarz und weiß Malerei. Seine "Heldin" ist nicht der unbesiegbare, in jeder Situation coole Character anderer Autoren, sondern so unglaublich menschlich. Die Erzählung aus ihrer Perspektive und im Präsens zieht den Leser in die Geschichte hinein, entführt ihn in den detailliert beschriebenen und gut vorstellbaren amerikanischen Süden und entflicht ein vielschichtiges Konstrukt aus aktuellen Mordfällen, verdrängten Erinnerungen und komplizierter, tragischer Familiengeschichte. Ich habe selten eine Protagonistin mit solcher Intensität und einem so hohen Empathiewert "getroffen" wie Cat Ferry und selten noch so lange über ein Buch nachgedacht. Eines der besten Bücher, das ich seit Langem gelesen habe!

5.0 von 5 Sternen spannend bis zum Schluss 13. Mai 2005
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Blood Memory" ist einer der mitreissensten Thriller, den ich in letzter Zeit gelesen habe. Nachdem ich von Greg Iles' vorigem Buch (The Footprints of God) nicht ganz so begeistert war, hat mich diese in den Südstaaten der USA angesiedelte Geschichte um Catherine wieder völlig in den Bann gezogen. Obwohl man schon früh denkt, den Mörder zu kennen, bleibt es bis zum Schluss spannend. Immer wieder kommen Zweifel auf, die durch die eine oder andere Überraschung im Verlauf der Ermittlungen ausgelöst werden. Fünf Sterne hat sich der Autor sicher verdient!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr unterhaltsamer spannender Krimi 11. Juli 2007
Von K. Beck-Ewerhardy TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
In diesem neuesten Roman von Greg Iles begegnen wir der Odontologistin Catherine Ferry, die häufiger in inoffizieller Funktion dem NOPD hilft und sich nebenher dem Apnoe-Tauchen, manisch-depressiven Episoden, Wodka und den Ehemännern anderer Frauen widmet. Bis eines Tages einer dieser Ehemänner – Sean Regan – ein NOPD-Detektiv, sie in einem Fall hinein zieht, der bei ihr ganz unerwartete Reaktionen auslöst. Es werden Männer mittleren Alters gefunden, die durch jeweils zwei Schüsse getötet wurden. Zuvor wurden sie allerdings noch mit etlichen Bissen gefoltert und entstellt.

Schnell erzählt, spannend dargestellt mit sehr eindringlichen Charakteren und Situationen ist dies ein sehr erschreckender Roman, der einige der kontroverst diskutierten Themen der kriminologischen Psychologie aufgreift und verarbeitet. Wie in dieser Art der Literatur mittlerweile üblich kann Mr. Iles in diesem Zusammenhang auf eine ganze Menge Fachwissen zurück greifen, was selbst sehr ungewohnten Situationen und Gedanken starke Authenzität verleiht.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Packend und verstörend 9. Juni 2006
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Greg Iles schreibt sehr gute Thriller, wenn auch mit schwankender Qualität. Dieser Thriller ist- trotz seiner Länge - absolut lesenswert. Jedoch eine Warnung: so nebenbei als leichte Strandlektüre kann der Roman nicht empfohlen werden.

Das Thema Kindesmißbrauch wird vielschichtig und kompromißlos dargestellt.

Der Plot selbst ist fast schon unglaublich: Über mehrere Generationen hinweg werden Frauen von einem Familienmitglied mißbraucht und verdrängen diese traumatischen Ereignisse, so daß der Mißbrauch immer wieder mit der nachrückenden Generation fortgeführt werden kann.

Wirklich unglaublich ? Man braucht nur die Zeitung aufzuschlagen und wird eines besseren belehrt.

Fazit: Sehr lesenswert, absolut empfehlenswert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen one of Iles' best books 21. Februar 2005
Von mackattack9988 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Blood Memory ranks right up there with the best of Greg Iles' novels to date, such as The Quiet Game and Mortal Fear. He is really talented at weaving complicated suspense with interesting characters, and in this book he returns to the Mississippi setting he knows so well. There are even appearances from characters and a storyline from two of his previous books, so that's a little extra fun for readers familiar with his work. What makes Iles' books even more appealing is the range of topics that he explores. Each book is a well-written suspense tale, and Blood Memory is no exception. I think it's his best book by far since The Quiet Game. The topical subject matter of Blood Memory is a troubling reality. While the basic plot idea of vengeance in this arena has been tried by other authors, Iles tells a more powerful story across the spectrum of predator and prey. This book really has a lot going for it: classic Iles suspense, detailed forensics, strong female characters, and vivid storytelling. Not only is it a hard book to put down, it's also one that will be hard to forget.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dark Blood, Deep Memory 5. März 2005
Von T. Slaven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
At age 31, Cat Ferry has it all going for her: brains, beauty, family wealth, and an accomplished career in a branch of the dental sciences that puts her into frequent contact with police officers solving intriguing crimes. But Cat Ferry is a mess: dental school was a refuge from the medical school she was asked to leave, she has a string of broken relationships with older men, alcoholism is a likely diagnosis, and her current relationship with a married police officer is quickly reaching its crisis point. The good and the bad converge as Cat is drawn into the solution of two mysteries. One involves a series of bizarre related homicides in her adopted city of New Orleans. The other involves the unsolved murder of her own father decades earlier in her home city of Natchez. Is there a relationship between these two series of events so removed in time? It begins to seem so as Cat becomes the Clarice Starling to a (fortunately) non-cannibalistic psychiatrist who both figures obscurely in her own past and emerges as a link among the New Orleans homicide victims. Cat's journey toward the solution of these mysteries has as many twists and turns as the river that connects the two central points in the story, and it takes place against a menacing background of power, passion, violence and repressed memory that is just as raw and threatening as the bayous that predominate the landscape between her two homes, then and now.

This book is very good reading for several reasons. First, it is very different from much popular mystery fiction today, which tends to be formulaic and abbreviated. So many of today's mystery novels, with their one-dimensional characters, trite plots, and brief chapters seem to be slightly pumped-up versions of screenplays that their popular authors hope to option to the movies as soon as the books ascend to their inevitable places on the best-seller lists (or perhaps even before). Indeed, many of the characters appear to be modeled to attract the A-list stars most likely to turn the story into big box office. As literature, these books are produced for people on the go, and are designed to be read between subway stops or umbrella drinks on the beach. They are breezy, they use short sentences and small words, and the sexual deviancy that seems always to be an inextricable element of the plot is inevitably crude and salacious. I confess to having indulged in the guilty pleasure of spending time with these novels.

Blood Memory is a different "read". The only formula it follows is having a beginning, a middle, and an end. While the characters have their various virtues and vices that are important to the context of the story and the flow of its plot, they also tend to be multidimensional and interesting. While it partakes of elements of both, this book is far less a police procedural than it is an exploration of psychopathology. The story goes in some unexpected places, and the author is skilled in foreshadowing his plot developments in a subtle way that lets the reader anticipate the turning points just slightly ahead of the characters. This is both difficult to accomplish and very satisfying for the reader.

Another bright attribute is the use of language. The author is skilled both in description and in the development of the interior monologue that contributes to the reader's appreciation of the conflicts and complexity of its central character.

I recommend this book for those who want to experience the joys of reading without the guilt that accompanies the expenditure of time on so much of what passes for popular fiction these days.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bloody Great Book! 20. Februar 2005
Von ellen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This reviewer is not one who like a child in class tells you the plot of a novel - you are mature enough to read the plot line when you are contemplating the book to buy.
What I want to tell you is why you should choose this book, or any Greg Iles books.
He not only chooses diverse subjects for each books, but almost all of his books have a lyric quality in his writing, that makes layers upon layers as you read - there is beauty in his style that is magic. I can quote passages from his earlier works, and not many can say they do that with other authors. I sent a 'fan letter' to Iles and he was gracious and I was impressed.
I call him our generation's Faulkner, because he not only knows the South, but knows how to portray it not in black and white, but how it weaves its spell into the plot of the novel.
If you have not read Mortal Fear and The Quiet Game, they are definite must haves. The others are excellent, but have varying impact on the reader. Blood Memory stands out among his excellent works - and is worth the wait we fans had to endure.
Usually his works come out in September, and we had some time to wait this time, but it is worth it.
This is a man who has a gift. Read the plot above, or others' reviews that read like a book review in school, although the book's subject is serious. What I am here to tell you is WHY to buy a book. It hits you on many levels and makes you think as well as experience. And that makes the difference between a good writer and a great one.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Dark tale of blighted lives. 23. Februar 2005
Von E. Bukowsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Catherine Ferry, the protagonist of "Blood Memory," is in deep trouble. She is an alcoholic with a long history of promiscuity and manic depression. Cat is a forensic odontologist who is having an affair with Sean Regan, a married homicide detective with the New Orleans Police Department. Her relationship with Sean is an open secret that may soon derail both their careers and Sean's marriage. Cat has helped Sean solve a number of murder cases in the past. Now, they are investigating a series of brutal homicides of older men who were shot and covered with bite marks. For reasons that elude her, Cat has had panic attacks at several of the crime scenes, and she is rapidly losing her professional credibility.

Much of "Blood Memory" is a recounting of Cat's hazy recollections of her early childhood. She fondly remembers her beloved father, Luke, a Vietnam veteran who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. Cat's grandfather, Dr. William Kirkland, is a powerful, tough, and influential businessman who has no tolerance for weakness. Her mother and aunt are unhappy women with serious personal problems of their own. Only by delving into her past will Cat uncover the dark secrets that have caused her so much pain for so many years. Both in flashback and in the present, the author provides evocative and vivid descriptions of Natchez, Mississippi, Cat's and Iles' home town.

"Blood Memory" starts out well. Cat is a sympathetic heroine. She is smart, tenacious, and beautiful, but her problems threaten to overwhelm her. Will she be able to stay away from alcohol? Will her mania and depression destroy her ability to function? Will her married lover give up his wife and children to be with her?

As "Blood Memory" progresses, however, the book gradually sinks under its own weight. At almost five hundred pages, the narrative becomes increasingly repetitious and melodramatic. One horror story after another emerges until, by the end of the book, I felt burdened and exhausted.

Except for Cat, the characters are mostly one-dimensional. Pearlie is the steadfast house servant who has tried to keep Cat's family from disintegrating over the years. Michael Wells is a pediatrician who has always carried a torch for Cat, and he conveniently shows up to help her in her time of crisis. Cat's grandfather, William Kirkland, is a stock villain with absolutely no redeeming features. The only character other than Cat whom I found intriguing was Dr. Nathan Malik. He is a psychiatrist who specializes in manic depression and repressed childhood memories of abuse. Malik has a creepy aura about him and his supercilious manner reminded me a bit of Hannibal Lechter.

By the time I finally turned the last page of this novel, I felt very weary and sad. "Blood Memory" is about tormented individuals who suffer for the rest of their lives when vicious people rob them of their innocence. Iles also explores the meaning of childhood memories, the psychology of vengeance, and the imperfections of our criminal justice system. If the author had streamlined his book, fleshed out his characters, and handled his subject matter with more finesse and subtlety, "Blood Memory" would have been a much better and more readable novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An entertaining thriller about child abuse? YES!!!!!! 30. März 2005
Von John Daley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Greg Iles is one of my favorite authors. His last two books have really disappointed me though. 'Sleep No More' was about souls switching bodies, and 'Footprints Of God' was just a boring Dan Brown rip-off. So when I heard the plot for 'Blood Memory' I was a bit leary. A thriller about child abuse? Iles actually pulls it off though. Blood Memory is the best book I've read this year. It is more than just a thriller, it reads like "To Kill A Mockingbird'. A fantastic portrait of life in the south. Iles characters jump off the page like they are real people living in Natchez, Mississippi right now. Buy this book, you will not regret it.
