Book Description

April 1 1990
It is Easter in Angelby and in the market place three crucifixes, with life size effigies, have been erected. The town, however, is more concerned with the visiting pop-group, Second Coming, whose lead singer is a local boy. But soon a different figure is hanging dead on the centre cross.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death of a God Dec 16 2012
By Damaskcat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ten thousand men have gathered on Monkenheath not far from the centre of Angleby in memory of Loy Tanner's rebellion in the sixteenth century. That gathering ended in hanging but the modern gathering seem peaceful if worrying for the powers that be in Angleby. Inspect Ben Jurnet is not at all sure it is a police matter and in any case he is still dominated by the violent death of his girlfriend Miriam.

When Charlie Appleyard, leader of the gathering, is found dead in the city's red light district the whole thing becomes a police matter. I found this book compelling reading and quite disturbing at times. The nature of crowds and the way they behave is well done and convincing and the book really shows how something small can turn a peaceful crowd into a riot.

I thought all the characters were convincing and believable and the examination of some of the depths of human nature was frightening and thought provoking. The ending especially is the stuff of nightmares without being graphically described. This is the last book in this underrated series and I would recommend the whole series to anyone who likes traditional crime novels with added psychological depth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Death of a God is a devil of a read June 23 2000
By algerina - Published on Amazon.com
An interesting premise the lead singer of a rock group called the Second Coming is found murdered. The plot is complex but the writing is difficult at best. When the author concentrates on action the story flows but when she adds description the story bogs down with complex sentences that you often have to read once or twice to understand her meaning. I found that her continuing characters had feet of clay. I was more sympathic toward the murderer than the hero. There are three lovely moments the death of a cat, the tale of ancient atrocities and a mother's notification of a child's death which brought a tear to my eye and kept me reading to the end. This is the only book in the series that I have read but I am not planning on tracking down the others.
