Robert McCammon continue de nous surprendre avec cette histoire policière sur fond historique.Son héros Matthew Corbett est attachant et nous fait passer de bons moments.Ceci est le 2è livre avec ce héros qui en contera 10.
SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD is my favorite McCammon novel; I’ve pitched it as Sherlock Holmes meets Sleepy Hollow. It’s a really good psychological thriller.
Whereas SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD takes place in a small colonial village pertaining to the occult, THE QUEEN OF BEDLAM takes place some time later, in New York City, and puts Matthew Corbett in a blender of subplots—a string of murders, an abusive orphanage owner, mysterious crime solving agency, among many, many, many other subplots.
TQOB is different in the same way that season 2 of THE WIRE was way different than season 1—different setting, difference season, different tone, different pace.
TQOB feels slow in the sense that it varies drastically from NIGHTBIRD; but trust me, there’s a payoff—and the subplots aren’t in vain.
