The Scent of Death

review The Scent of Death Read ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook É Andrew Taylor Andrew Taylor É 4 Summary From the No 1 bestselling author of THE AMERICAN BOY comes a brilliant new historical thriller set during the American War of Independence Manhattan 1778 A city of secrets profiteers loyalists and double agents As the last part of America under British rule New York is home to a swelling tide of refugees seeking justice from the British crown Edward Savil. Once again Andrew Taylor demonstrates that he is a master of the historical crime novel and I d rate The Scent of Death even above Bleeding Heart Suare and Anatomy of Ghosts I especially love authors who help me think of familiar things in a new way To most Americans the War of American Independence which they habitually call the Revolutionary War was an international conflict between Great Britain and America To those of us who are historically sophisticated it was also a civil war fought in the American colonies between the Loyalists and the rebels who Americans usually call the Patriots But this story made me aware that it was also a party conflict between British subjects on both sides of the Atlantic the whigs and the tories Which explains why British whig politicians such as Mr Burke and Mr Fox supported the rebelling American colonists because they embarrassed the tory government of Lord North Of course in Britain the struggle was carried on with pamphlets and Parliamentary speeches in America if was also with gunpowder and lead Which is why to this day most Americans refer to the Loyalists as Tories though I doubt if one in a hundred has the foggiest notion of what those Tories had in common with the supporters of Mr Cameron today Yes there is a real historical relationshipTaylor beautifully evokes the atmosphere of New York city under siege The narrator Edward Savill a somewhat naive English visitor from the American Office in London provides an unfamiliar point of view on this uncouth provincial town so crude compared with London The American Loyalist characters are well drawn and varied though I could not help being anachronistically amused that the heroine was named Mrs Wintour kept thinking of Prada I admired the touches of 18th century diction one s address is also one s direction The author is very generous with his clues I missed the significance of the title damn it and the alert reader should be able to figure out what the principal characters are up to and the backstory of the slave Juvenal Was his master Mr Froude a reader of the Roman satirists Towards the end the story turns thriller with a terrifying struggle on the frozen Hudson RiverI loved one minor character the very brave and resourceful Mehitabel Tippet and was sorry she just faded out at the end She certainly deserved a happy endingMy favourite of Taylor s novels still remain the Roth trilogy and the total lack of spirituality renders the characters in The Scent of Death very shallow But that absence fits the period all too wello

Edward Savill is a clerk sent to British occupied New York during the American War of Independence to log the claims of dispossessed loyalists His job is a tedious sinecure dependent on the patronage of his lofty father in law and it takes him away from his beloved daughter and from his strained relationship with his wife In New York he becomes a participant in a mystery involving murder espionage and the search for an elusive box of curiosities He also falls in love with the wife of his host Mrs Arabella Wintour who has secrets of her ownThis is a very gripping read the historical setting of New York under the British is interesting the mystery is tantalising the story has many twists and turns For me the two most successful aspects are how the author captures the historical context so convincingly and how he portrays the character of Savill who becomes a detective despite himself Here is a clerk with all the mindset of a man who owes his position to others who is reluctant to become involved who is honest and perhaps a bit boring to those around him but who despite himself has the reserves imagination and integrity to press the mystery to its tragic conclusion It may be that some may find Savill s transformation from passive participant to man of action rather sudden but for me this is a small uibble in an otherwise very convincing tale First Kill the Lawyers tragedy in her past while his son plans a dangerous mission into enemy Seven Crows territory And what of Mr Noak The Passport of Mallam Ila the enigmatic clerk seemingly bent on a dubious course of his own One Johnny Cash Song Lyrics Guitar Chords Play Country Songs on Guitar thing is clear The Portable Pediatrician the killing in Canvas Town was just Rathi Samrajyam the start of a Problems in Real Analysis trail of murder and it's leading directly Renegade Leo Shifter Kings of Kartak #1 to Savill.
