Exciting and readable,
This review is from: With No One as Witness (Inspector Lynley Mysteries 13) (Paperback)
With No One As Witness is the latest Inspector (but now acting Superintendent) Lynley mystery, and follows the aristocratic detective on the trail of a serial killer, a task of which he has not attempted before. When Scotland Yard realize they are chasing a murderer who seems to claim credit for the increasing number of corpses they have found, the media ignites over the fact that the killer's victims are young, black and mixed raced boys. "Institutionalised racism" is plastered over tabloid front pages, making work for the police very difficult. Elizabeth George truly brings out the characters with the quirkiness of her writing. I found this book totally unputdownable, and though a bit long, it is so fast paced and well written, I almost didn't notice.
