Simon Clark ✓ 8 summary

Amelia Thomas heads for the sun soaked Greek island of Voros to piece her life back together after a failed romance and a mysterious accident which has left her feeling an outsider to the rest of the worldVoros should be an idyllic peaceful place Here there are no roads no towns I have to admit that I haven t read any of Simon Clark s novels since his first two Judas Tree is his seventh and shows very well Clark s development as a novelist The tiny Greek island of Voros is home to a motley crew of inhabitants mainly incomers including Amelia Thomas mother Catherine Amelia escapes her life in the north of England for what she hopes will be the safety and security of Voros and a new start in the relationship with her mother But it soon becomes clear that Voros is no ordinary Aegean sun trap for the tourist and expatriate The Thomas villa is outwardly luxurious and magnificent but that impression barely conceals many trivial and unexplainable happenings and an overall sense of unease and the growing conviction that the whole island is the centre of unknown forces As if Voros is alive and taking an active part in the lives of its guests both past and presentUnlike Clark s earliest novels Judas Tree is understated subtle and conveys a brooding sense of unease and suppressed horror all in the sun soaked and idyllic Greek setting which is also very well realised As the novel moves towards its end Simon keeps the reader guessing as to exactly what it will be The number of pages shrinks but no resolution seems to be in sight However we are left with a fast and dramatic conclusion and one that also preserves the complete oddness and otherness of Voros Highly recommended

    In need of a good edit very repetitive We get it every time someone opens the door during the storm grit gets in their eyes We get it I also don't see the point in introducing Bill as a character if he was just going to disappear for the second half of the book and never return in any substantial wayThe disgus

    I remembered this being a haunting tale set on a windswept Greek Island Having re read it a few years later I can confirm it is just that and nothing A slow paced yarn with an unsatisfying ending
