The Amber Maze by Christopher Bowden
Thank you to Anne Cater for the opportunity to read and review The Amber Maze by Christopher Bowden. Also thanks to Christopher Bowden and Langdon & Wood for sending the book. There is nothing like a good mystery to keep you guessing.
The Back of the Book
While staying in a Dorset cottage, Hugh Mullion finds a mysterious key down the side of an antique chair. No one can say how long the key has been there or what it opens.
Hugh’s search for answers will unlock the secrets of the troubled life of a talented artist, destined to be hailed a neglected genius fifty years too late. And no secret is darker than that of The Amber Maze, from whose malign influence he never escaped.
The trail takes Hugh from Edwardian Oxfordshire to 1960’s Camden Town, where the ghosts of the past are finally laid to rest.
Delicately crafted noir fiction at it’s best.
I found The Amber Maze akin to Agatha Christie with its mystery drawing you in. Wondering where the next clue will take you and how the story will end.
Delving into the history of the Assendene’s takes Hugh down a road of investigation bringing nightmares and panic.
Taking the investigation in another direction brings to light the amazing talent hidden from populations.
Reading this had me thinking about my own family history and what deep dark secrets could lurk beneath. Who knows the real truth behind any family!?!
