HASH(0x9a2720fc) out of 5 stars Another Masterpiece From Alan Russell June 12 2013
By Jackie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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!

HASH(0x9a24f720) out of 5 stars Excellent mystery novel - guaranteed to become a classic. April 22 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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

HASH(0x9a24fd8c) out of 5 stars A terrific read Nov. 13 2013
By D. Safir - Published on
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.

HASH(0x99fa0ac8) out of 5 stars Complex and Entertaining March 19 2007
By Will Belegon - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

HASH(0x9a250318) out of 5 stars Something different Dec 16 2013
By A. Stamford - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Interesting book. The multiple-personality afflicted suspect is something different but the classical myth-related theme of her personalities seems too forced, as if the author is just trying too hard to be clever. The meandering plot doesn't make this a page-turner, nor does the character development. The detective, Cheever, evokes a mild sympathy and attachment in the reader but other than that there's nothing here to make one really care about any of these characters.
