Stone Bruises summary ↠ 0 Simon Beckett ´ 0 summary review Stone Bruises Ilde die ihn so hingebungsvoll pflegt Aber deren verführerische kleine Schwester ist völlig unberechenbar ebenso wie der tyrannische Arnaud Irgendetwas stimmt hier ganz und gar nicht und Sean will es herausfinden Doch die Arnauds haben ihre Geheimnisse und der Alte setzt alles daran dass sie niemals ans Licht komm This book started promising it really did It was actually a good enough start that I had to go and get the book right after I read the initial chapter Oh what a fool I was Oftentimes when a book starts out interesting it s just a ploy to keep you reading the boringness that will follow That is exactly the case here Once the first few chapters passed there was almost nothing else to keep my attention and the author really didn t try He seriously just wrote a good hook so that he could write about relationships Ugh Then there are the very unsubtle parallels to The Big SleepBasically I kinda feel that I wasted my time reading this when another book would have been much satisfying It only deserves two stars for the readable beginning and a few clever bits of dialogue that were also toward the first third of the book

review Stone Bruises

Stone Bruises summary ↠ 0 Simon Beckett ´ 0 summary review Stone Bruises E getreten aufgestellt von Arnaud dem Besitzer des Hofs einem Eigenbrötler der keine Fremden auf seinem Besitz duldet Sean darf dennoch bleiben wenn er mithilft die maroden alten Wände neu zu mauern Er nimmt das Angebot an denn eine Rückkehr nach England kann er nicht riskieren und auch wegen Arnauds Tochter Math With a slight hiatus in his writing it was with some excitement that fans will greet this new standalone from Simon Beckett marking a diversion from his well established and thoroughly enjoyable series featuring forensic anthropologist Dr David Hunter Stone Bruises reveals itself as very different fare indeedSean is a man on the run and we re initially in the dark as to why and from whom We do know that he s abandoned his battered blood stained car in the middle of an isolated part of rural France in the grips of a scorching summer Desperate to avoid the police he takes to the offbeat tracks of the French countryside only to be caught in a trap both physically and as things are revealed metaphorically Nearly unconscious from pain and blood loss Sean is taken in by two women daughters of the owner of a rundown farm with its ramshackle buildings blighted vineyard and the brooding lake It soon becomes clear that this is only the start of Sean s problemsFrom its opening scene of a man adrift in the middle of nowhere and the veiled references to the violence that Sean has encountered in previous days Beckett neatly builds a tense and claustrophobic feel from the outset that pervades the whole book Instantly your mind goes into overdrive as you try to unravel the clues drip fed throughout this scene as Sean leaves behind his means of escape and communication and begins to hitchhike through the countryside with his destination unknown The portrayal of this lonely rural landscape and the sweltering heat is superbly rendered and both elements add even to the tension What secrets and dark deeds surround Sean What awaits him further along the roadThe real turning point is when Sean badly wounded from an animal trap is brought into the home of the taciturn yet tyrannical local farmer Arnaud and his two daughters Mathilde and Gretchen Then things really get interesting At the same time Beckett begins to open the shutters on Sean s previous life in London steadily revealing the events sparked his flight to France and the two narratives weave in and out of each other throughout As Sean recovers from his injury and he begins to become deeply interred into the life of the farm and its inhabitants it s safe to say that some duelling banjos will resonate in your mind This sets up a horrifying and violent conclusion to the whole affairThe characterisation is superb throughout and what s interesting is how Beckett seems to present the characters as through a prism particularly Arnaud Mathilde and Gretchen Not only do we observe them through Sean but also through the eyes of the local town dwellers which unsettles Sean further in his perception of the dark undercurrents he senses within this claustrophobic family From the gruff and violent father Arnaud to the seemingly sensible Mathilde and the marvellously deranged Gretchen Beckett provides us with much fodder as we try to unravel the dynamic of this strange group and their sinister secrets To this end Sean is almost just a conduit for the interesting exploration of the family itself and this for me was certainly the most gripping narrative of the two I found Sean s former exploits in London a little underwhelming Disappointingly this aspect is a wee bit predictable in contrast to the events in France where the plot setting and characters keep your attention truly centredDespite the small imbalance between the two storylines Stone Bruises is enjoyable and I would certainly recommend it Probably not as a travel guide to rural France though as you wouldn t want to set foot there ever again having read this book However it is an engaging and darkly unsettling read that has than enough sinister surprises en route
