It just didn't hold my interest at all, the whole Italian setting and the complexities of the relationships of all involved was just so convoluted, and totally unbelievable.
I just couldn't finish it - and that's rare for me.
As much as I once loved Lynley and Haver, I won't justify wasting any more time on any future books in this series if they continue to be written like this one.
Readers of Ms. George's novels will not be surprised that Barbara immediately sets out on a course of action that could well place her career in jeopardy in order to clear Azhar of suspicion and to find his daughter alive and well. However, the case is far more complicated than Havers could possibly imagine.
This book is a complete mess and is perhaps the worst novel I have ever read, largely due to Ms. George's writing style. There are other factors such as a ridiculously far fetched and needlessly complicated plot and the novel, comprising more than 700 pages, is far too long and over-written; I had lost interest in the story and had been driven to distraction by page 150. Elizabeth George has always been guilty, even in her better and earlier novels, of using words out of context and squashing as many obscure words as possible into each chapter- presumably to show readers just how erudite and well-read she is. Does she not realize that the best writers use beautiful, clean, uncluttered English.
What sets this novel apart and gives rise to my unadulterated dislike of the story is the Ital-inglese she employs in those chapters set in Lucca.Read more ›

Long drawn out. I've read all of the Lynley books but the last few have been so hard to read. Definitely not a page turner. Read morePublished 24 days ago by twobabyboys
By mid-way the rather weak plot begins to drag. Miss George still refers to "rozzers" a word I haven't hear since the demise of Dixon Of Dock Green (Google it). Read morePublished 2 months ago by Gladstone
After reading the last book, (which was dreadful by the way) I was a little dubious of reading this one, however I was pleasantly surprised. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Kindle Customer
Much too long. The story quite unrealistic - and boring. Couldn't finish it. Gave up half way. And what's the point in using all the Italian words? Read morePublished 5 months ago by Eva Solveig Lundberg
