The Assassins' Village based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
This is not just a `who done it' but also a wonderful picture of ex pat life in Cyprus. Ms Mortimer brings all her ex-pat characters alive with a sure touch and a deft stroke of the pen. But she doesn't just stop there. She also gives us an insight into the Cypriots as well. Their way of thinking as well as their way of life. Her characterisation is the reason this book works so well. It is so well written, the book is an easy read, as not one word is out of place or unnecessary. A tour de force of the `Who done it' mystery genre. I can easily recommend this book. It's murder mystery and even cozy mystery. Great read
This is a wonderful whodunit that will keep you enthralled throughout. The setting is Cyprus, where the author lives, and her intimate knowledge of the place shines through. The story is worthy of Agatha Christie as the clues pile up and the mystery is solved in a most satisfying way. Highly recommended.
Good book to read if you are an insomniac. Though subtitled a mystery and suspense thriller, I just could not get into The Assassins' Village by Faith Mortimer. If you are a fan of the author's writing, you might appreciate this tale. I found it dull and the characters flat. After reading more than 15% of the book, I gave up trying to find its redeeming value.
