The Nosferatu Scroll characters ´ 100 Women all killed in the same ritualistic manner start appearing throughout the city And when Angela disappears Bronson knows that he must find her before she too is slaughteredBut Bronson's hunt for Angela leads him back to the Island of the Dead and into a conspiracy deadly than he could ever have imagine. I devoured this book in a little over a week This either tells you that it is a great book which I couldn t put down or that I had too much time on my hands A bit of both I think and a 3 hour train journey also helps It also helps that James Becker writes in a very formulaic style with short chapters and cliff hanging last paragraphs and carrying 2 or 3 story lines in alternate chapters Terry Pratchett does the same Some may dismiss this book on that basis as a good beach read and little else and that would be to do an injustice to Becker Not literature but very entertaining story writingOur hero Bronson a British policeman and his wife Angela ex wife in this book I think an archaeologist are on holiday in Venice when they stumble into a series of events including grave robbing abduction sexual assault and killing of young girls Bronson can t help but dig around pardon the pun to find out what is going on and Angela can t help but steal a relic a Vampire Diary no less from one of the opened graves This of course drags them into a strange world of Vampires and rituals and provides a great excuse for chases fights boat chases and an exploration of the many islands that scatter the lagoons around Venice Not so much Bond or Bourne Raiders or CSIIf I had one criticism it would be the detailed description of the ritual in the church basement I know Becker would say it is essential to the plot and probably has its origin in something he found in his research but I found it way too graphic and felt it could have been removed or sanitised without really spoiling the story As it is it is an 18The story is routed in fact it would seem and Bronson provides the justification for the premise of the story in a fascinating precise of the history of Vampires and the origination of the word Nosferatu at the end of the book I was also amazed to read lately that Vampire cults are on the rise and causing concern to the Venetian authorities

This was a really difficult decision giving 2 startsIt s the only James Becker I ve read so maybe I m missing something of the characters but they don t seem well developed to meThere are lots of reviews on and elsewhere that unfairly criticise the book I don t have any problem with the plot or the content I think my main problem is threefold1 It s too long There is no need for this book to be than 300 pages Which leads me to2 IMHO it needed another edit Either by Becker or an editor but the whole flow and pacing needed to be controlled much better especially in the earlier parts of the book One aspect was bad enough that I ve given it it s own number3 The dialogue Mr Becker perhaps you could read it aloud and then rewite it so that it sounds like actual people are talkingI don t normally write reviews but I have this time because I m disappointed This could have and should have been a 4 star read for me and I think the only reason it isn t is that it s not finished
