Another great one by George! This was about Barbara and her Pakistani neighbor. She finds out he is called away to the beach to help out some family in crisis. She figures out through press releases that he is there to help his family with the murder of the future son-in-law. Since she is on leave to recover from her injuries from the last book, she decides to go to the coast and see if she can see what’s going on. She finds out, the lead investigator is someone she went to the academy with. Emily. Emily lets her in on the case and it takes off from there. This is strictly about Havers. Lynley, and Helen are on their honeymoon and St. James and Deborah do not appear. The plot revolves around the relationship between the Pakistani’s and the local British who are trying to live in harmony in this coastal town. The murder exposes true prejudices and Barbara ends up in the middle. George is a master at the mystery and suspense. Her plots are so intricate, she weaves her way to grab your attention and you are caught in the web till the end. She has become one of my favorite authors.

So far I am enjoying The Inspector Lynley series but this one was a disappointment. Maybe because Lynley wasn't in it.

I found that it really dragged for me. Ms. George loves the English language and obscure vocabulary and she uses both to the hilt here. I thought the book could have been 500 pages not 700. And the "who done it" was a let down.

Balford-le-Nez is a dying seatown on the coast of Essex. But when a member of the town's small but growing Asian community, is found dead on its beach, his neck broken, sleepy Balford-le-Nez ignites. Working solo, without her long-time partner Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, Sergeant Barbara Havers must probe not only the mind of a murderer and a case very close to her own heart, but the terrible price people pay for deceiving others...and themselves.

Lynley and LadyHelen do a cameo apperance as the leave for their honeymoon. This one is all Det. Sgt. Barbara Havers. Great story line with insights into another culture. I have been wanting to see more of Havers.

I love George's characters. They are all rich, deep and superb. She is one GREAT mystery writer and Deception on His Mind is one of her best!
It's a nice change that Havers gets the book pretty much to herself and proves herself without Linley.
