I cannot get enough of Elizabeth George and Inspector Lynley.
This is British Mystery and a 1006 page read. The characters are fully developed and the author will keep you guessing who the murderer could be as the plot unfolds.
If you love Brit mysteries you should enjoy this novel. I had not read any of the Lynley mysteries, but this book can stand alone.
I have read all of the books in this series and, as this one was good, it did not come up to the standards I have set for all of the others. This book did not have the intrigue that I have enjoyed with George's other stories in the Thomas Lynley collection, but I still feel that it is worth reading. Elizabeth George is able to weave characters lives together in her same masterful way. Where I feel that Tommy has a lesser role in this book, I am pleased to see that Barbara is her same witty self and am delighted that Nkata plays a bit more significant role than in other novels in this series. A good read, though for me, a slow one.
This is a very involved Lynley mystery and her longest thus far in this series. I didn't like this one as much as her earlier ones. Oh well, I still like her writing, guess I don't have to like them all.
Excellent narration, always enjoy Lynley and Havers. The abridgement, well, it took some real leaps and assumptions to fill in the very large blanks. At the last disc I kept thinking, what? but when ? and what happened to? I read the hard copy after listening to fill in my questions. Next one, I'll read hard copy first and enjoy the narration after.
Well written, engrossing tale of the misunderstandings between people that lead to tragedy
Very good book! Kept me guessing until the very end!
Elizabeth George is truly the reigning queen of mystery. Another masterful Inspector Lynley novel of intrigue and suspense.
