The Isis Covenant (Jamie Saintclaire, #2) Review The second in this series of books based around art recovery expert Jamie Sinclair Book one the Doomsday testament The Doomsday Testament was a massive and wonderful surprise There are so many thrillers of this type on the market but so many fall short of being a great thriller Something of the quality of an early Jack Higgins WW2 thriller Doomsday Testament was an equal to those books and doubly so because it was a debut thriller.Great debuts are always a double edged sword, is it a flash in the pan can it be equalled or beaten by book two Thankfully for me, you and James Douglas yes he can equal it, in fact it beats book one for suspense, action, adventure, intrigue and story.As in doomsday testament, the Isis Covenant blends the modern world with World War 2, add in a nice dose of Ancient history with the central aim being the recovery of the Crown of Dido A legendary item hunted by Tyrants through the ages for its alleged ability to hold the answer to life Death.Our Hero Jamie has a price on his head, is it from his recent past and his butting heads with the remnants of the Nazi Regime Who is the evil force killing people in such a gruesome fashion What are they looking for will they find it and if they do what terrifying outcome will come to pass I m not giving away the plot, you need to buy the book to find out But its Sooooo worth doing so.As with book one the characters are so well written, so real and alive and this is no surprise because James Douglas is the pseudonym of one of my favourite historical writers none other than Douglas Jackson Writer of so many fantastic books It also answers why the history of these books is so real and vivid.Caligula Rufus 1 Claudius Rufus 2 Hero of Rome Gaius Valerius Verrens 1 Defender of Rome Gaius Valerius Verrens 2 And once you have managed to work your way through the fantastic feast above there is also the latest in the Verrens series Avenger of Rome Gaius Valerius Verrens 3 The only thing wrong with this book is that they didn t do it in Hardback.This is a must read book, one not to miss.Very Highly Recommended Parm Product description AD 64 Roman centurion Marcus Domitus leads an expedition to find the mythical treasure hidden deep inside Queen Dido s temple.AD 1945 In the confusion and chaos of a burning Berlin, two high powered Nazis disappear, and so does a precious object.AD 2009 Two families are brutally tortured and murdered in Boston and London, the crimes linked by a single name and a shared history.Art recovery specialist Jamie Saintclair receives a call from a Boston detective, asking for his help to investigate a brutal murder She believes Saintclair might hold the key to solving the crime through his detailed knowledge of specialist Nazi units But as they delve deeper into the sinister world of the occult, they uncover a dark secret that men have lusted over for than two millennia Long ago, in the ancient temple of Isis, something was stolen, and the repercussions have resonated through the centuries Saintclair must discover the truth before the curse claims victims, and finally catches up with him Middle of the road, standard fayre.Easy, clean, historical artifact plus Nazis plus innocent academic who happens to have military training, throw in a random woman with whom he immediately starts sleeping and, hey presto, a top selling book.Pleasantly passes a few hours but I ve forgotten it already.
