2.0 out of 5 stars What Happened Here?, 17 Jan 2014
This review is from: Just One Evil Act (Inspector Lynley Book 18) (Kindle Edition)
I realised within the first hundred pages that this was going to be a long drawn-out read, as indeed it proved to be. I have read all Elizabeth George's other books, except 'Before He Shot Her', which I didn't think I needed to get involved in. I did finish this book but it has been a struggle, I'm a quick reader but it dragged on and on and I was losing the will to live at some points. I tried to skip some of the pointless narrative to hurry it up and keep it tighter but it was still a struggle. I know this book is fiction but, really, it delved into the realms of fantasy in many instances. Barbara Havers has become a caricature of herself and unbelievable, which is a shame because, in the earlier books of the series, she was just eccentric. Shame about all this, I really enjoyed the first few of her books, except, maybe 'Playing for the Ashes', which was over-the-top, in my opinion. I shall consider reviews carefully before buying another.
