READ Ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ë Andrew Taylor

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

    Well crafted and satisfying in the end but the structure of the story made this book really really drag until the last hundred or so pagesI had high hopes for this after reading Taylor's Anatomy of Ghosts and indeed this is on the whole a good story But it's really convoluted and hard to follow and the reader is asked to s
