By David Penny
Set in 1492 in Moorish Spain, Red Hill features Englishman physician Thomas Berrington. As physician to the Sultan, Berrington is given the additional task of solving murders committed within the palace. How's that for ingredients for a great adventurous novel...harem beauties, dashing fighting men, court intrigue, and the sights and sounds of 15th century Spain. Add to the mix, violent murders of women in the Sultans's harem and an exotic puzzle to be solved by the brilliant surgeon-physician. Although he is billed as brilliant he des not prove it in trying to solve the mystery of the murders. Here the plot suffers. Berrington makes one wrong assumption after another and breaks in the case come by chance and have little to do with crafty sleuthing. The writing style is serving the story well but isn't very inventive. I was bothered with too many typos and grammar errors as well. Where was the editor? All this to say the the novel was interesting as to the setting but the plot was rather mundane. Berrington is an interesting character with a backstory only partially revealed and will surely be expanded in the next two novels in an advertised trilogy. With Red Hill's flaws, I will try the sequels.
