A Londra un produttore di musical si suicida inspiegabilmente dopo la trionfale prima della sua nuova opera. Tre mesi più tardi, nella brughiera del Derbyshire, vengono trovati i corpi senza vita di Nicola, figlia di un ex poliziotto, e di un giovane ucciso a coltellate. Quale può essere il legame tra i due eventi? L'ispettore Linley di Scotland Yard comincia la difficile indagine senza la sua partner abituale, Barbara Havers, degradata per insubordinazione, che condurrà invece un'indagine parallela. In un crescendo di sospetti, la George scava a fondo nell'animo umano, facendone emergere i desideri e le paure più inconfessabili.

Number ten is superb and proves the series is worthy of reading I absolutely believe this novel proves George to be a literary writer. Without question she also writes with a feminine 'taint'. As long as men make the rules of what quality writing must consist of, the author probably will never comple Leggi tutto
"Dit boek is één van de betere die ik al gelezen heb van haar. George heeft opnieuw een parel afgeleverd!" https://elinevandm.wordpress.com/2021...
"How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is To have a thankless child!" —King Lear Reading a Lynley mystery each month is honing my chunckster reading skills! Are none of these books less that 600 pages? It's a good exercise, as this year I wanted to focus on reading hefty books (page count) over n Leggi tutto
I know who done it! I know who done it! HA! Another favorite author and detective discovered compliments of PBS "Masterpiece Mystery." I have not been reading the Inspector Lynley series in order. This is because I am having difficulties coming across used copies of the author. I know that sounds che Leggi tutto
Not too much to say except that reading about the fallout from Haver's actions in the last book drove this one a lot. Havers is still with the force, but demoted. Lynley feels as if Havers was not properly punished for what she did and is reluctant to work with her again. Through a new case though ( Leggi tutto
This was a long book. Too often, I find myself disappointed when I get to the end of a story; having grown to know the characters, becoming interested in the created community beyond the immediate concerns of the plot and just enjoying the ride. Ms. George's Inspector Lynley books are becoming longe Leggi tutto
The mystery portion was intriguingly convoluted, but, man, is Elizabeth George long-winded! 6 pages devoted to the back story and daily details of the person who found the body, another 6 pages for the back story and daily details of the kid who found the murder weapon, and we also get a continuing, Leggi tutto
This is the Finnish version of Elizabeth George : In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner. The book was quite lengthy and got a bit boring at times. The story just didn't seem to go anywhere though it grew roots to every direction. I guess crime investigations are like that in real life too. I didn't like Th Leggi tutto
Yea! YaY!! Tommy finally sees why Barb had to shoot at the DCI to save her little neighbor. Of course his illumination comes about because of Helen, who is far more intelligent than she or her friends give her credit. I love Helen, she is by far my favorite character, she is bubbly, happy and yet co Leggi tutto
Well this is the 10th book I have read by this author. It was 594 pages long and a heavy hardback. I'm always impressed with the author's vocabulary and after reading 10 books with the same characters my fondness grows for them. There was some friction between Detective Inspector Lynley and Barbara
