Roman stood next to Isadore above the cool table with its display of meat. Is she Gypsy?’ Isadore asked. There was no way of avoiding it now.

Gypsy in Amber presumes knowledge and interest on the part of the reader, without a reason why that should be. What it makes explicit, it repeats until the excitement is gone. The writing isn't bad and I appreciate the cursory educational tidbits about Rom culture, but as a mystery this isn't much of an offering.

by Martin Cruz Smith. From the master of the international thriller (The New York Times) and the bestselling author of Tatiana and Gorky Park, Martin Cruz Smith’s first mystery novel-a classic crime whodunit with a shocking twist. One girl was dead, one girl was threatened, one girl was possessed. One girl was found horribly mutilated, the victim of a rite that no sane person believed could take place in the modern world.

Here's Martin Smith before he added the Cruz. Who knew? A well crafted, exquisitely written mystery with a fascinating setting, vivid characters, and surprising plot twists. The novel is a bit dated, but still holds up well. Cruz Smith can write, as proven over and over with his Arkady Renko series, but here you get to see him in a different genre. Brilliant, and only 70,000 or 80,000 words. Thank you library for indexing Martin Smith under the proper author.

I own two copies of this book and it was first published in 1971 (not 1975 as suggested) when the author used the name Martin Smith (no middle name). I also have Canto for a Gypsy by him that was publish in 1972. The book jacket has an early photo of Smith and he certainly looks like he has gyspy ancestory. Mr. Smith is an excellent story teller.

Martin Cruz Smith has a real knack for rooting his stories within really fascinating backgroups. The Russian police in GORKY PARK, bats in NIGHTWING, the development of the Bomb in STALLION GATE, etc. etc. This very early novel of his is no exception. We get to delve into the life of an American Gypsy, something few of us have any background in. And we learn a lot about antique furniture, which I never thought I'd be interested in, but it was so well done, I found myself quite drawn in.
But the actual plot, the mystery, if you will, is pretty thin, and quite frankly, the "final showdown" is really not very good. There's a lot of stuff with "hippies" that seems painfully dated today. The book is a must for people who read Smith avidly, as I do, but I wouldn't recommend it as a starting point for delving into Smith (just plunge right in to GORKY PARK for that), nor would I recommend it to the casual mystery reader, because the mystery itself is not much.

I enjoyed this early Martin Cruz Smith mystery. The main character, Roman Grey is fascinating in many of the same ways Smith's later heroes are... quiet, humble, competent, quick, enigmatic. As with his later novels, Smith gives some interesting information about a group of people that the mainstream U.S. doesn't usually think or know much about; in this case, gypsies in the U.S. in the 70's, v.s. later novels inhabited by Native Americans, or Russians, or miners. In this case, I think the circumstances of the Gypsy are sometimes more interesting than the story itself. Not that the story is dull. But I found some of the plot to be a bit stretched.
Martin Cruz Smith is a fantastic writer, and I'd like to hear more of Roman Grey, though I don't really expect we will.
Martin Cruz Smith is literally my favorite author. So, when I found an copy of this at a flea market I was overjoyed. However, after reading it, I'm kind of wishing I wasn't so lucky. The book has a quirky sarcastic lead, like Arkady Renko, but beyond that there are little to no similarity to the Renko series which is utter gold. This is a just a writer learning and perfecting his craft. Just part of the process but sadly, a part I could have skipped.
