Kurzbeschreibung

‘On the beach stood the adverse array (of Britons), a serried mass of arms and men, with women flitting between the ranks. In the style of Furies, in robes of deathly black and with dishevelled hair, they brandished their torches; while a circle of Druids, lifting their hands to heaven and showering imprecations …’

When Roman historian, Cornelius Tacitus, recorded the invasion of the small island of Mona Insulis off the North Wales coast in 60AD – the beginnings of a propaganda war against the Druidic religion began.

Two thousand years later, that war is still being fought.

For two millennia, descendants of a small sect of Anglesey Druids have protected their blood lineage and mysterious secrets from the world. Until members of this secret society are murdered one by one.

Detective Sergeants Gareth Parry and Chris Coleman, along with new girl,
DC Megan Jones, must stop this killer at all costs. What they discover will
shock the whole police team and leave consequences which have an impact
like no crime in the history of the force.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very gripping and, well, mysterious mystery! 18. Juli 2013
Von OldSaltCityAce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A handful of varied and somewhat eccentric people are caught up in the midst of a psychotic serial killer; women are being gruesomely tortured and brutally killed, all in pursuit of buried treasure; Roman gold in Wales. A young, ambitious detective tries her best to solve the case while keeping the interest of an old flame. The hardened 'old pro' fights his own battle of opening up to a former lover's return as he follows leads down one blind alley after another. Can the two detectives check their own emotional baggage long enough to find the killer before he strikes again?
I enjoyed this very much, and I highly recommend it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Golden 26. Mai 2013
Von leekmuncher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

The third book I've read by this author and Gillian Hamer delivers another edge-of-the-seat nailbiter which does not disappoint.

Once again, the setting is the glorious north coast of Wales. But this time, an ugliness blights the landscape.

Someone is torturing and killing older people for information.
The contemporary crime story is threaded through by a second narrative, illustrating the long-lost indigineous culture of the Druids. As these two threads grow increasingly intertwined, we come to understand much more about the place and its people.

Central character, new girl DC Megan Jones, is a terrific creation reminiscent of Clarice Starling. This girl's a grifter and determined to be a good detective.
But one of the first lessons to learn is who, and who not to trust.

A cracker of a read, and just perfect for a wild and windy Sunday.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Prose that snaps off the page, crisp, clear and powerful 19. Februar 2014
Von Francis Guenette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book and simply couldn’t put it down. If it takes a special reader to enjoy bouncing from AD60 in Northern Wales to a police investigation in 2013, then I must say, I am that reader.

No spoilers in this review – the book is a mystery wrapped in layers of history and I won’t give any of that away. What I can say is that Hamer has the rare ability to make characters come alive with thoughts and emotions that ring true. The reader truly cares about what’s going to happen to these people. I was also left somewhat breathless by setting descriptions done with stunning and swift clarity – be it a windswept cove or the inside of an older woman’s home. Thinking back on the novel, it is almost as if I had been watching a movie rather than reading a book, the images remain so clear.

Be warned, this author pulls no punches. Be prepared to gasp more than once and feel a few body blows as the story progresses.

Without a doubt, I am on the lookout for more of this author’s work. Bravo, Gillian Hamer.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Mystery! 5. Dezember 2013

What a ride! This book is the author's best one yet! First, I love the setting of Ms. Hamer's books. I can see them in my mind's eye from her descriptions. I love the way she blends two stories into one. My personal opinion is that it take a great author to do something like that. Her characters are amazingly well rounded. I felt connected to them. A great book. Highly recommended.

This is another nail-biting thriller that grabs you and doesn't let you go. They just keep getting better and better. I continue to be most impressed with Hamer's ability to weave historical facts into a modern crime story. The historical element was a Roman invasion of the island Mona Insulis, an attempt to destroy the Druids. The parallel stories are expertly interwoven and independently compelling.

This is the third book that features the team of detectives in North Wales. They are a wonderfully flawed bunch but their investigative skills are exceptional. The supporting characters were intriguing and essential to the plot. I found I was able to identify the killer fairly early, which is unusual for a Hamer book, but the ending surprised me none the less.

There is always an element of historical fiction in Hamer's books but it was far more prevalent in this book than in the others. I felt it really gave us a look into the true nature of the ancient Druids. It was also a very vital part of the plot as a whole.

This is a book I would definitely recommend. Hamer's knowledge of the region of North Wales and its history shines through in her writing. She has a talent for making the reader feel like they are a part of the landscape. I am anxious to see what comes next.
