In una casamatta sulla spiaggia di Balford-le-Nez, una cittadina sulla costa dell'Essex, è stato scoperto il cadavere di un uomo. La vittima è stata identificata in Haytham Querashi, da poco giunto da Karachi, in Pakistan, per sposare la figlia di un facoltoso uomo d'affari del posto. La nutrita comunità pakistana locale sostiene che si tratta di un omicidio a sfondo razzista e reclama una pronta risposta della giustizia, ma la polizia non ha ancora rivelato la sua linea d'indagine...

"In de ban van bedrog kan intussen wel rekenen op een mooie 4 sterren score want ondanks mijn scepsis vond ik het toch een goed in elkaar gestoken verhaal dat me kon boeien." https://elinevandm.wordpress.com/2020...
"Barbara was well aware of the myriad prices women had to pay to succeed in police work. Men in the profession didn't have to persuade a single soul that their competence was unaffected by their sex. Women lived with having to do that daily." Another amazing police procedural under my belt. I can
I slogged through this 713 page monster because I have enjoyed George's Inspector Detective Thomas Lynley stories so much, both in print and on the televised BBC series. (I also have a hard time abandoning books I begin.) This one features his side-kick and apprentice, Detective Sergeant Barbara Hav Leggi tutto
So...we have a book where Havers is the lead and Lynley is only in it for a few moments. I don't think the book worked without Lynley being included. Also Havers started to bug me since based on her character it made zero sense why she got so invested in her next door neighbor. I also thought the en Leggi tutto

For if she will she will, you may depend on’t; and if she won’t she won’t so there’s an end on’t.” from the pillar erected on the Mount in the Dane John Field in Canterbury The above is how the ninth Elizabeth George boo Leggi tutto
This is my favorite in the Lynley series after the first one, A Great Deliverance . I didn't find it quite as powerful, that first book in the series moved me to tears. In this one Inspector Thomas Lynley is off on his honeymoon so his partner Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers--who was battered emoti Leggi tutto
Another very enjoyable read. I like these books more and more, and I'm going to be sad when I've finished them all. The characterizations are outstanding and the mysteries are well-crafted, as long as you don't mind the author's slight cheat of putting you in the mind of the killer without revealing Leggi tutto
One of my favorites in the series. Havers is this time around the main character and Lynley largely away. The case Barbara gets on her hands has ties into the Asian community of a certain town, where the leaders have a very complicated relationship with the rest of the community and an even more tro Leggi tutto
AROUND THE WORLD OF CRIME/MYSTERY 1997-It appears we are at the mid-point, or at least a big turning point, in this very good series. CAST - 5 stars: Sergeant Barbara Havers keeps this series fascinating, and here she is front and center, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley is mostly out of sight. Emily Leggi tutto
Ninth in the Inspector Lynley mystery series set in contemporary London.
