Kurzbeschreibung

Holly Troy's mind is a complex maze of myth and reality, multiple personalities vying for time in the spotlight. As an artist, she is creative and compelling. As a witness, she is painfully unreliable, unsure of even which person she was the night of the murder. Even Holly can’t be sure of her own innocence. Homicide detective Orson Cheever never thought he would find himself playing psychologist to a Greek goddess in a modern-day murder investigation, but many of Holly's personalities come straight from classical mythology, from Cronos and Pandora to the Fates. As Cheever attempts to unravel truth from myth, he learns that there is even more to Holly than meets the eye. One personality in particular—that of a five-year-old girl—hits a little too close to home, and Cheever is forced to finally pull back the dark curtains of his own past in order to uncover the truth in this psychological thriller.

Synopsis

When her art gallery owner is brutally murdered, Holly Troy, a sculptor suffering from dissociative identity disorder, cannot remember if she witnessed the crime, or actually committed it. Original.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good book, great characters 21. Februar 2013
Von Margaret
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A perfect book if you like good, clever entertainment with some thrill thrown in. The multi-personality-disorder of one of the main characters is absolutely convincing, no cheap trick to get the plot going, really, very convincing. The other main character, life-weary cop, sort of run down and getting unraveled around the edges.. really nice. And him perhaps getting consolation and perhaps happiness (nah, I won't spoil here!) - good. It catered to my cheaper desires of justice in real life, when a weak woman successfully fought off a rape attempt.. GREAT. Normally you have to invent a character like Jack Reacher or Rambo for that.. you know, silent but deadly. But here, it's only one facette - as I said, a good read. A good buy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great entertainment 15. April 2014
Von Käufer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Solid and well crafted mystery fiction, with the occaisonal dash of good humor. Including a character with multiple personality disorder provides a nice twist to the story, which potential the author potential the author successfully realizes.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Tolle Idee 1. August 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Super Idee ( auch wenn ich mich wiederhole) , der Mann kann schreiben und hat Phantasie.
Heutzutage ist jeder ein Kritiker und hat was zu nörgeln: an ein paar Stellen bin ich geholpert beim Lesen ( so wie "Häh?" ) Vielleicht auch die Übersetzung. Insgesamt gut zu lesen

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable 19. Juli 2013
Von FrauG
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought Multiple Wounds purely because I so much enjoyed "Set This House In Order" by Matt Ruff which I read about seven years ago and which has a place in my top fifty of "must reads". It's therefore really hard to comment on Multiple Wounds without comparing it to Mr. Ruff's offering. There were very many similarities in the way that the illness is described and the way in which the characters deal with their situation. Multiple Wounds is a great read and I'm sure I would have given it a five if I hadn't already read Ruff's book. Buy both and see what I mean but don't read one after the other - that's known as over-kill.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent mystery novel - guaranteed to become a classic. 23. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Having read two of Alan Russell's books, including the Hotel Detective and the Fat Innkeeper, I was totally unprepared for this excellent novel. Although the sense of humor is still evident, Mr. Russell approaches the subject of multiple personalities much more seriously while providing the reader with a lesson in classical myths (read it and you will understand...) Exceptional read which will be enjoyed by those already familiar with Mr. Russell's work as well as new readers. This book should be in the Amazon top 50 list

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Masterpiece From Alan Russell 12. Juni 2013
Von Jackie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the second Russell book I've read. The second of what I hope will be many, many more. I find it difficult to find the right words to describe how much this book moved and entertained me. At the base of this book is a murder mystery. But in many respects I think of it more as a vehicle to move the human story that is the true focus of the book. A detective is faced with a potential witness or even suspect who suffers from dissociative identity disorder (multiple personalities). Though he knows little about this disorder, with the help of Helen's (the witness's) psychiatrist, he begins to learn the complexity of the disturbed and disturbing life that Helen lives. What is so moving and wonderful about this story is that the reader learns that all three (detective, psychiatrist, and witness) suffer from various wounds that they struggle with. Russell's ability to put the reader inside these personal and profound struggles is astonishing. I've seen a few movies about DID, Sybil and The Three Faces of Eve come to mind. But Russell's protrayal is, well, astonishing!!! I was so invested in these three characters and their struggles that I almost wanted to skim my way to the end, and yet wanted to read every word carefully because they are so skillfully woven on the page. The investigation is interesting, but more so because of how it pulls the characters to the story's conclusion. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this novel. And I'll be seeking my next Russell book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A terrific read 13. November 2013
Von D. Safir - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had read Mr. Russell's "Burning Man" and was already taken by his writing style, so I had high expectations for this book. I have to say I was not disappointed. I couldn't put this book down. It works so well on many levels - a mystery, thriller, love story, psychological study and a Greek mythology lesson. I have to disagree with the reader who said that you have to know Greek mythology to understand this book. There is enough explanation to know what is going on. I don't like to give plot summaries. You can get that when you look online at the book. Suffice it to say that it involves murder, a young woman with multiple personalities (all of them but one from Greek mythology), a smart detective, a charming psychiatrist, and a mysterious past, tangled up in a web of mythological characters. You get to care about each of the main characters, and can't wait for the final outcome. Bright readers might be able to guess part or most of the mysteries, but that doesn't matter. The writing is quite expert and I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Complex and Entertaining 20. März 2007
Von Will Belegon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Alan Russell has written a novel that will intrigue you with it's three main characters. He guides you through the plot using the shifts of focus in one character with a number of distinct voices, but for all the intrigue in her it is the more crucial and realistic relationship that is almost overlooked at first.

It's easy to get fixated on the tricks and twists in the "multiple" part of Multiple Wounds, but pay attention to what's going on behind the curtain for the real wizardry.
