Another brilliant Powers and Lynch tale, this time taking us on a pilgrimage through Spain. The prologue of the book really sums up why I love Hugh Greene's books - murder is never pleasant subject, especially murder that involves sexual exploitation of minors, and in many books there is far too much gritty and salacious detail for my taste - designed, perhaps, to provide some dark titillation? - but Greene uses the power of what is left unsaid to create suspense and horror that is far more chil ...more

The subject of this novel is of topical interest today and is a difficult and emotional one. To temper it with what is almost a travelogue, all well researched and packed with information, description and detail, running alongside and woven into the story is, I think, a brilliant concept.

As always with Greene the dialogue is natural, rings true and is well adjusted to suit individual characters. The depth of understanding and camaraderie between the two friends is well developed and their inform

This is not going to be an easy review... Schrödinger's God is not a book I would imagine many people wanting to write, and I suspect it's a book that even fewer people could write. Luckily, Hugh Greene is one of the people with both the willing and the skills to deliver this book.

Let's start with the elephant in the room. Or more accurately the young girl and the priest in the prologue. Hold on though, don't react to that yet. There's a fair chance you have strong views about something like tha

An Excellent Mystery

I received this through Goodreads Giveaways and while it started a little slow for me it really ended up delivering the suspense that I was anticipating. In addition, it took me through some interesting locations. The characters are quite engaging, the story is well told and the twist at the end was exceptional. I enjoyed this book very much!

There’s so much interesting in this book. Of course, there’s the horrendous crime to solve but, frankly, that didn’t turn out to be the part I enjoyed the most. I really liked all the little side information ... the St. Order of St James, the discussion of evil, how one dies in a sealed room, how the Romans brought down mountains to obtain gold, all the historic facts along the Way and much more. And I really thought Power and Lynch were great; both were different characters and their relationsh ...more

I received a free copy of this book directly from the author for review purposes.

I admit I still haven't read the immediately prequel to this (mostly as I don't shop online and no bookseller locally stocks it) but I did enjoy the first two books in the series.

The series has definitely evolved and also become bigger. This story mostly takes place in Spain. As always the research the author did means the book has more levels than a typical skyscraper.

This is definitely not a cosy detective story.

I was lucky enough to win The Schrodinger’s God by Hugh Greene on Goodreads. I have never read a book by this author before and I wanted to expand my book choices and authors, so after reading the description about the book I was intrigued.
At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but I found that once I’d started, I found it hard to put down and was eager to carry on. The references to past high profile cases had me reliving and remembering the details about them, making the book more d

Best of the series so far. Read it on Kindle. Loved this mystery - a true quest like in Cervaantes- the two heroes set off along the St James Way and this makes a really special setting for an ingenious thriller, with some shocks along the way. I love the way the books dovetail together, although they can be read as stand alones. The subtle hints and clues about the series in the text and illustrations add to the depth of the books.

Dr Power does meet monsters doesn't he? Hugh Greene never fails
