BOOK REVIEW: CARELESS IN RED
BY ELIZABETH GEORGE
We hope you enjoy this book review by
Careless in Red is the latest book in Elizabeth George's Lynley Series. Elizabeth George brings the reader on a masterfully written journey of Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley's. As a long time fan of Elizabeth George's works, this book took me a little off guard. Careless In Red is not quite like the others in the series. George's novel is intricately woven together and for once Lynley is center stage. George's prose and mastery of suspense will keep the reader engaged until the very end.
The book begins with Detective Superintendent Lynley grieving the loss of his wife Helen and unborn child. He has left the Met and is quite literally walking the coastline, unkempt, unshaven, no identification and no money on him at all when he stumbles across a village full of secrets and murder.
Rather against his will, Lynley is forced into the investigation of Santos Kerne , first as the one who finds the body, then out of his nature Lynley begins making inquiries. Before long, DI Bea Hannaford, who is leading the investigation, realizes she is in need of Lynley's skills and connections to help puzzle through the many tales being woven by those who were involved in Santos Kerne's life.
Ms. George lays out for the reader an array of characters, plots and sub-plots, each one more complex than the other, as only she can. While this novel is lacking the presence of Havers, with the exception of a few cameo appearances, it does not fail the reader in mystery, suspense and intrigue. I look forward to seeing what direction her next novel takes.
