    One thought on “Заветът "Изида"”

    1. Despite occupying some of the same historical space as my last outing in this genre - The Charlemagne Pursuit - The Isis Covenant is a much more nuanced, well-written and therefore much more convincing and satisfying read. It reads like a proper book, by a proper author who can write properly and doesn't read like a collection of sketched notes and still the outline of a book, like The Charlemagne Pursuit did.The plot is reasonably simple, but then all good plots are. It involves the hunt for th [...]

    2. After reading James Douglas' excellent debut thriller The Doomsday Code I couldn't wait to read its follow up The Isis Covenant. Jamie Saintclair, the art dealer who seems to attract trouble like bees to honey, is a very likeable hero while, as with the Doomsday Code, the baddies are horrifying. The story here has its roots in the Egyptian and Roman past but a significant strand takes place in Germany during the terrifying closing days of World War II. An excellent follow up by an author of bril [...]

    3. Second book in the Saintclair series is superior. But the author's Rome novels are still better.

    4. Review:The second in this series of books based around art recovery expert Jamie Sinclair. Book one the Doomsday testament The Doomsday Testament was a massive and wonderful surprise. There are so many thrillers of this type on the market but so many fall short of being a great thriller. Something of the quality of an early Jack Higgins WW2 thriller. Doomsday Testament was an equal to those books and doubly so because it was a debut thriller.Great debuts are always a double edged sword, is it a [...]

    5. Some time ago I read the first of James Douglas's "Jamie Saintclair" thrillers, and I've been awaiting thne opportunity to get to the second. Well, now I've finally read The Isis Covenant.There is a certain genre of tale that was made popular by Dan Brown, owing to Indiana Jones and revolving around the mystical and the occult in the modern world. And despite Brown's fame, there are plenty of writers who, to my mind, are better examples. One is Simon Toyne. Another is James Douglas.Douglas' thri [...]

    6. There are a few authors who are known for a series or genre but also like to have fun in another area. Douglas Jackson produces excellent novels set in Roman times, but here with a tweak of his name he is having some fun in the ancient relic escapade game.The tale here is about an ancient relic, The Eye of Isis and it’s alleged powers that someone wants to get hold of. Cue dodgy Nazis, an ancient sisterhood, a sinister murderer and so on. Our hero Jamie Saintclair joins up with a female (of co [...]

    7. The first outing of Jamie Saintclair had me singing his praised as a new man on the block in the world of mystery/thrillers and i was looking forward to The Isis Covenant to move on to greater heights and boy did we fly high.Once again James Douglas uses his passion and quality research to again weave a tale that has you page turning way into the night.Saintclair is once again on the trail of a long lost artefact,The Crown of Isis,that was once part of the Ttreasure of Queen Dido of Carthage tha [...]

    8. Another good romp from James Douglas and if you've read his first Jamie Saintclair book you will be getting more of the same. Fast paced action, historical treasures, and Nazi secrets.My only gripe was the very casual way the love interest from the first book was tossed aside for a new one.It did not ring ture for starters and if it was to happen in such a way then I like Jamie as a character much less.A good read for a rare hot English summer day.

    9. The search for a fabled Egyptian crown that provides immortality is reminiscent of Indiana Jones, especially with all the Nazis running around, but is not nearly as exciting. Some of the dialogue between the hero and the female New York cop was also rather unoriginal and uninspiring in places; it read like the sort of thing you might hear in a rather second rate drama. Quite enjoyable, but I had hoped it would be a little more exciting.

    10. What a load of tosh and drivel. I gave up on chapter four, after unbelievable characterisation and dreadful plot lines make the book unreadable. I am glad I bought it in a supermarket bargain bin - it does not deserve to be anywhere else.

    11. Great read Jamie sinclair and agent Danny Fischer looking for the eye and crown of Isis In which badoo Ritter changed his name to max dorbergherlieve it can restore life.
