Barry Forshaw on R. Ellory and Stanley Ellin Ellory, and his particular skill lies in a sprawling, ambitious realisation of American locales — at times reminiscent of the great Stanley Ellin. And like the sardonic American author of The Speciality of the House, Ellory has a taste for the darker recesses of human psychology.

Our Man in Camelot (Murder Room) (English Edition) by Anthony Price
Now for something completely different — a small-town setting for a riveting tale, one that grows so that when the eventual horror comes, it fair hits you in the stomach. It involves the killing of young girls as World War I breaks out in Europe, a period of death and brutality that so affects a young boy that his teacher persuades him to write about his feelings. We get much depth and emotion which in a crime novel lifts it way above the genre. I particularly enjoyed this one. The Lovereading view The Dark Room DI Hicks must face not only a killer obsessed with randomness and chaos, but also the secret in his own past.
If he is to stop the killings, he must confront the truth about himself and the fact that some murders begin in much darker places than he ever imagined. It's and Germany are determined to get their hands on the region just as Zannis becomes involved in an audacious plot with the Resitance to smuggle Jews to Istanbul. All is fine until a reckless love affair jeopardises just about everything.

A little convoluted, but enjoyable, particularly if you like history. Our Man in Camelot is one of Anthony Price's cold war espionage novels, all of which have some connection to much older history or archaeology. This one is populated by academics and amateurs who are, or become, caught up in Arthurian legend or history as Price himself clearly is.
This is a actually a good book to explain to the novice reader the essential historical details of Arthurian Britain c. It also features a romance between two of the main characters, and there are self-conscious Arthurian resonances in the roles some of the characters adopt. Most of it takes place within a few days, and with a cold-war setting the twists and turns are quite gripping, but seem plausible to me. It hinges on a search for a famous Arthurian locale: Badon, supposedly the site of Arthur's decisive victory over the Anglo-Saxons.
I won't spoil the ancient mystery of finding Badon, or how it relates to the cold war, but it was surprisingly satisfying to me. A warning though: it was published in , and very much shows the racist and sexist attitudes prevalent in society at that time. Unlike the previous review, I have not read all of Price's work, just this one novel.
It was in my opinion a wonderful example of the cerebral sort of short novels that seem to have been more plentiful in the 70s than they are nowadays. The American CIA agents are sympathetic and their struggle to maintain their cover in the face of British intelligence makes it suspenseful, but it's the puzzle about the Arthurian Dark ages and why they meant the death of a couple of Air Force pilots that pulls the reader into the tale.
The women characters aren't central but they are given a fair portrayal, better than many genre authors of the time period did it was worse in the 50s and 60s though. They're smart, they have feelings. The racism is a bit worse, but more on the part of the characters than the author, as the one black character is minor, but doesn't get killed off at least. If it suffers in comparison with the other books in the series, maybe that's only because it's less to the formula - which might be a good thing to some readers! Go to Amazon. Back to top.
