Elizabeth George, the mystery writer, writes about England to perfection and lives in California and was brought up here.



George crafts a careful tale where characters are slowly developed to show their multiple facets and secrets. There is nothing splashy about this novel, but it leads the reader through various assumptions and reversals which keep the rhythm going. This minutia helps create the final shock, expected but emotionally charged and thoroughly appalling.
While I would have preferred less details about tea and daily routines, I did very much enjoy the slow pace and the many story lines that converge nicely.… (mais)

Another intriguing and confusing addition to the series. Confusing, in a good way, as you're never sure what will happen next. Lots of character development for Lynly and Havers as well.

This is the story of the three Campbell children, Toby, Joel, and Vanessa (Nessa) and their Aunt Kendra before Helen Lynley was shot. At the beginning of the book the 3 children are left on Kendra's doorstep without her knowledge by her mother who has decided to follow her current boyfriend to Jamaica with the promise that she would send for the children. Kendra has a job and is also trying to start a massage and tanning bed business. She tries to take care of the children, the offspring of her dead brother and his wife who is in a mental institution. Vanessa is 15 years old and rebelling. Toby wears a life preserver ring and is not mentally around most of the time. Joel is 12 years old and a misfit who tries to take care of his brother Toby and keep the secrets of his sister Vanessa. When Vanessa gets involved with the Blade, a gang leader who is into almost everything illegal, drugs, sex, robbery, intimidation, and murder, thing get even worse for the family. Vanessa has not been going to school since the move, Joel becomes involved with the Blade. This is not the best book of Elizabeth George, in fact it is the full of so much description that I skipped 3/4 of the book, read just the first 25% and some of the end of the book. There is no hope for this family or others in their situation shown here.… (mais)
