chapter in the lives of The Murdered House s characters a traditional novel without attempting to artificially heighten the suspense beyond what the plot naturally allows And what a plot it is involving not only Magnan s usual concerns of sex money and revenge but also unreuited love faith the cruelty and senselessness of war and other such Big Things The delicate brilliance of the second half of the book in which Magnan interweaves the main characters personal dramas with the world war raging in their backyards literally is particularly noteworthyAlthough this book is much slower moving than the other Magnan books I ve read I thought it was undoubtedly the best of them Like his other books its pages ooze the colorful yet ominous charm of Provence But the difference is that in this case his scene setting artistry is being put into the service of a tale so much Enlightened (Red Flags, epic and meaningful than his usual ones which generally revolve around nothing complex than crimes of greed or sexual jealousy Given how petty and shallow the motivations of Magnan s characters tend to be a weakness still asvident in this book as in his others I found it remarkable that in this case I was drawn along not only by the plot but also by a genuine sympathy for the main characters and concern for their fate which was absolutely not the case in his other books that I ve read This struck me as a significant accomplishment on the author snext chapter in the lives of The Murdered House s characters
part and a testament to the xcellence of this book Plus onand a testament to the xcellence of this book Plus on simple level it s just really neat that the author wrote a seuel that continues the lives of its key characters in a completely different genre than the original book in which they were introduced without it seeming at all unnaturalI don t know when I ll get around to it but I am already looking forward to re reading both The Murdered House and Beyond the Grave The former is a strange and gruesome book that I would not recommend readily and only to mystery buffs at that but Beyond the Grave is a fantastic book that asily stands on its own outside of the confines of genre. Seemingly responsible Dead if that is what he is S raphin appears to be infinitely present that he was in his lifetime Ranging over half a century this is a self contained seuel to the author's prize winning novel The Murdered Hous.
