Careless in Red: The Twelfth Novel in the Best-sel&hellip by Elizabeth George

I used to be a big fan of Elizabeth George, but I'm disappointed in her latest effort. Though I didn't mind that she killed off Helen (her weakest character, a very irritating and shallow creation, I, for one, was not too grieved by her departure), I have the distinct impression that she is more than tired of her old standard characters (Lynley, Havers, and the rest). That's the explanation, IMO, for her "What Came before ..." in which she escaped from the usual storylines and characters.

The Yorkshire Ripper: The In-depth Study of a Mass&hellip by Roger Cross

This book is OK in that it gives you the facts, but like another reviewer said, it doesn't really try and explore the psychology of the serial killer. I would have liked something more detailed with comparisons to other similar cases and more thought about psychology, etc. It's obviously written by a journalist, he gives you the facts but remains on a relatively superficial level.

On a side note, the quality of the photographs in the paperback version is absolutely appalling, they look like cheap photocopies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, 16 Aug 2006
I confess I didn't expect much from this book : written by a friend and 'approved' by Sir Paul, mmm ... I thought it would be a boring hagiography but it wasn't. Informative and surprisingly honest, the author often criticizes Mr & Mrs McCartney's flaws, though he gives an overall loving and interesting portrait of his subject.
