With bite and brilliance, rising Irish star McNamee burrows deep, to the brutal core of sectarian violence in Belfast, where a young psychokiller is sanctioned for his efforts to raise urban terror to new heights: a chilling, first-rate debut. Victor's dysfunctional family (silent father, bitterly brittle mother) can give no solace when he suffers beatings and false accusations of being the son of a Catholic, but he comes of age as fighting flares in Belfast, giving him ample opportunity to extract his revenge.

An extraordinary book, illuminating not only the political map of Belfast but also the dark ring-roads of collective memory and the secret blueprints inside our heads.

This novel reminds me of when I was about 9 years old, I sent a magazine coupon off to a Mystery Book Club with a dime and received 3 books. This novel reminds me of those type of books circa 1950's. It started off slow, but then it got better and I decided to finish it. All in all, an enjoyable read with a lot of twists, turns and surprises. A comfortable murder mystery but not normally my cup of tea. I may read this author again in the future when I want to take it easy and relax.

Max and Sarah are very busy with their business, friends, and family. Max is recovering from a leg injury when he runs into an old friend and follows her to find out what she is doing. He and Sarah run into a robbery, family problems, and murder. The case in this book can be really complicated, but it is action-filled. It is sometimes hard to follow the story, yet really worth the read.

Incredibly well written account of a serial murder and his environment in blood stained Belfast during the 1980s.The author paints with words images of despair,decline and loneliness in a population torn by sectarian violence.This is not just a true crime novel.It has a poetic,lyrical quality that vivifies the inhumanity of its denizens.It literally pierces the "Heart Of Darkness". A keeper to be read and reflected upon.

Eoin McNamee has conjured, from beyond the grave, the doomed characters of his novel. Soulless death squad members who stalk Belfast in the wee hours. Abducting, mutilating, butchering dozens of innocent Catholic boys and men. Resurrection Man, is full of intelligence operatives, homosexual blackmail, too much amphetamine, the smell of stale whiskey, and ghoulish murder.

Loved the preceding books in this series, but this one has distracting comma splices in every paragraph. I quit halfway through.

Another installment of a very fun series, featuring the return of Countess Lydia Ouspenska. Charlotte MacLeod is reliable, as always.

A good mystery with an ending that I couldn't figure out in the first 4 chapters. I like Max's attitude toward his in laws.
Our book club's book for January was Charlotte MacLeod's THE RESURRECTION MAN. We have read MacLeod books before, and many of us are fans. We wanted something light and humorous for the winter, so this seemed like the perfect choice.

Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn, now married suburbanites, return to Sarah's townhouse in Boston. Max, while limping along Boston Common, bumps into Lydia Ouspenka, which leads the Bittersohns to a recently-moved-to-Boston art restoration business called The Resurrection Man. Meanwhile, a mysterious Tamil is running around Boston, and is seen near the scene of various art thefts and, worse, two murders.

Hmm. I don't know how else to say this, but this book was terrible. We had twelve people show up for the discussion, and not one person liked it. The word used, over and over, to describe the book, is "boring." It's only 250 pages but it seems so much longer. The magic that Sarah and Max had in earlier installments is gone; the characters are all parodies of themselves. MacLeod herself seems to be in particularly snobbish form in this entry, with language that is often stilted, artificial, and pretentious. How can you take a book seriously that includes dialogue like this:

"Curses! Foiled again. How wily of you, Barty. I suppose now you're going to evict me from the atelier."

"She told me to flee from the doom that o'ershadowed me."

And those are just two small samples. The entire book is written in this style. What makes it worse is the plot, which just sort of loops out of control until a ridiculous ending; many of the events of the book, including the denouement, require extreme stupidity or lack of basic observation skills on the part of the cast. Another word that many of us used when describing this book was "frustrated." We were frustrated by the slow pace, the silly plot, the snobbery and pretense, the cringeworthy dialogue.

We had this experience once before... reading a book by an author whom we really liked, but whose books we didn't (it was a Sue Grafton book). We continue to like many of MacLeod's earlier books, but if you are new to this series, please stay far, far away from this book and start with one of the earlier books. What a disappointment.
