Believing the Lie - Inspector Lynley, Bk 17 Author:Elizabeth George Inspector Thomas Lynley is mystified when he's sent undercover to investigate the death of Ian Cresswell at the request of the man's uncle, the wealthy and influential Bernard Fairclough. The death has been ruled an accidental drowning, and nothing on the surface indicates otherwise. But when Lynley enlists the help of his friends Simon ... more »and Deborah St. James, the trio's digging soon reveals that the Fairclough clan is awash in secrets, lies, and motives.
Deborah's investigation of the prime suspect-Bernard's prodigal son Nicholas, a recovering drug addict-leads her to Nicholas's wife, a woman with whom she feels a kinship, a woman as fiercely protective as she is beautiful. Lynley and Simon delve for information from the rest of the family, including the victim's bitter ex-wife and the man he left her for, and Bernard himself. As the investigation escalates, the Fairclough family's veneer cracks, with deception and self-delusion threatening to destroy everyone from the Fairclough patriarch to Tim, the troubled son Ian left behind.« less
You are wasting your time----read the reviews on Amazon! After only 50 pages (and this book is 600 pages) it is just boring, the characters are not likable in any way, more than half the book is probably just descriptions and I hate a book like that! No desire to seek any more books by her.
Classic Elizabeth George! Familiar characters with some interesting twists and changes. Great sense of place, vivid descriptions. Continuing character development. I found myself irritated with Tommy's infatuation with his boss. Wanted to smack him a bit. :) That was the only thing that brought my rating down but I enjoyed every bit of it.
