This review is from: Careless in Red: An Inspector Lynley Novel: 12 (Hardcover)
I have stuck with Elizabeth George through thick and thicker (book thickness, that is) and I even quite enjoyed What Came Before he Shot Her. But unfortunately I started this one straight after Peter James' new one, and the contrast was painful. I lasted till p60 and then decided life was too short to plough through the remaining 470 pages when I didn't like any of the characters I'd met (including Lynley), wasn't interested in the murder victim, was irritated at the cloying Cornishness of everything including the outlandish names of every second character and had already spotted a couple of jarring unBritish uses of language. Sorry, this one is not for me.
