3.0 out of 5 stars Lynley & Havers : 17th issue, 31 Jan. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Believing the Lie: An Inspector Lynley Novel: 14 (Hardcover)
PAY ATTENTION, COULD BE SPOILER
In my opinion, most of George's readers buy her books to hear about their favourite heroes : Tommy Linley, Barbara Havers, Deborah and St James. Fans have not yet got through Helen's death three books ago.( Actually, I Think Ms George's best book is "What came before he shot her", which isn't strictly one of the series). Like all the others, I waited eagerly for the new book, but I was disappointed. The main story is too long, too many stories and a bit morbid (sex, child sex abuse, homosexuality and transgender all in a book is too much). It's clear that Ms George wants to pass fron the simple murder mystery to The psycological novel. She has already done this in all her other books, but now there isn't even a real murder. I enjoyed Tommy , Barbara etc., their life going on, their personal tragedies, because it was what I was looking for first of all.But everything has become so sad! Everything goes wrong, no one is happy at the end of the book. Barbara is as usual the most interesting character. Deborah has become boring with her only obsession, Tommy ...Tommy? Tommy behaves in a way difficult to understand, even given his personal tragedy. Too many tragedies, Ms George. I wonder what will happen in issue n 18. The end of the world?

I really enjoyed "What Came Before He Shot Her" also!

I thought "What came before he shot her" was her worst. Too much rambling about nothing really. If I wanted to read a social study of certain parts of London and its population I would have bought a book about it and not necessarily a crime thriller. I thought it was also about 300 pages too long.
