To be honest, I never thought to ask him why. That doesn’t seem like you. Did you want to leave London for some reason? And then quickly, Never mind. This is the sort of conversation that can get us in trouble. I’ll speak to you later, Tommy. She rang off. He was left with the mobile in his hand. He put it back in his pocket and continued to the boathouse. Best to keep his mind in the here and now, he thought.

Lie in bed, clutch the stomach, say Cousin Manette had served him something that must have been bad on the previous evening, claim he had already been sick twice during the night, and act appreciative when Gracie reacted as he’d known she’d react. That morning old George Cowley had waylaid Kaveh on his way to the car with Gracie in tow. Cowley looked like shit from what Tim could see from his bedroom window, but Cowley always looked like shit so it didn’t mean much to see him with his braces forgotten and his fly so undone that part of his shirt was hanging out of it like a tattersall flag.

Fresh out of yet another rehab programme- this one in America, in the state of Utah- Nicholas had taken himself to a former mining town called Park City for what he apparently believed was a well-deserved spate of R & R, financed as usual by his desperate father. The old mining town served this purpose well, for it was nestled in the Wasatch Mountains and into its embrace every year from late November till April came avid skiers from round the world, along with scores of young men and women hired to service their needs.

But when Lynley enlists the help of his friends Simon and Deborah St. James, the trio’s digging soon reveals that the Fairclough clan is awash in secrets, lies, and motives. Annotation.

Book by George, Elizabeth
  • I'm a big fan of the Lynley series but this one was by far my least favorite. I hated the Zeb storyline, so BORING! And the murder/accident plot was pretty goofy. AND Lynley's entanglement with the new acting superendent just makes him look silly and weak.

    I really wish the author would have killed off Deborah instead of Lynley's wife, Helen. Deb's constant whining about a child, her child, the child that she can't have, the child that she still has to somehow have for her husband, combined with her bullheaded hatefulness towards her poor husband, who only wants her to be happy for one blessed minute has become quite droll.

    I'm glad the next one centers around Barbara. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be more of the Elizabeth George writing that I love.

    The book arrived on time and in good shape.

  • Some reviewers don’t realise that this author has got a highly developed sense of responsibility toward society’s problems, which she works into her detective stories. And the woman yearning for a child might be annoying in her obsession, but this attitude is not the author’s creation. This is something that many actually go through. When I read about this woman’s problem and the psychology of her development in regard, I was filled with gratitude for having had my daughter at the first moment I wanted a child.

    And there is the other problem of genders tackled here, in different shades. The indignant reviewers have maybe got used to similar topics already for not protesting - or is it just the traditional ‘we don’t talk about such things’? Elizabeth George has always been into the turns taken by an individual mind when having to deal with an insurmountable problem - this story is no exception. I met this outlook first in her book ‘What Happened Before He Shot Her’, and was seriously shaken. I have been considering her my No. 1 detective story writer since having read a chance book of hers, but she cemented this position by this deep study on present day causes of meaningless aggression and crime among the very young.

    I always grab a book by her, and I am never disappointed. Thank you again.

  • Barbara Havers is my favorite character in Elizabeth George's Inspector Lynley series. Why? Because she injects much-needed energy, realism, and humor into Ms. George's storylines. Barbara is not just a great foil for Lynley, their connection is a window into who each of them really is - and that's something the reader, at least this reader, truly cares about. While reading the past several Lynley books, I have waited, and waited (and then waited some more) for Barbara to appear so the book could pick up some life and energy, and really move forward. And, that's one of the problems with "Believing the Lie." Barbara doesn't show up to save the plot soon enough. It seems that all of the other characters have lost their moorings -- Lynley just doesn't behave in any recognizable manner -- he seems to be going through the motions, and his relationship with his superior officer is laughably superficial. The superior officer's character is not at all likeable or understandable, and this is not the Thomas Lynley that I have followed and cared about in previous books. And, because Lynley has no extended conversations or interactions with Havers, we don't get the benefit of the richness of that relationship which has given many of the previous Lynley books a real backbone and a very interesting dynamic. Lynley's old friends Simon and Deborah St. James don't really bring much depth to the book either. Simon seems like a cardboard cut-out, and Deborah is, quite simply, running around like a chicken with her head cut off. These people don't reflect any of their shared past, nor do they help us understand the real emotional pain they are obviously feeling. Ms. George has not advanced the ball on these characters' internal emotional lives, nor has she advanced the ball on their connections with each other. That frustrates me, because, before Ms. George took the unfortunate step of killing off Lynley's wife, Helen, I really cared about these characters. Although I still care, I'm becoming impatient with what I think are wasted opportunities to develop the bonds between these characters. Other readers have expressed the opinion that this book is "homophobic." I disagree. However, the same-sex couple involved in the plot isn't really portrayed with any depth either, so we're left puzzled about what the bond really was between them, and what happened when one of the men's previous marriage ended in divorce, and he brought his two children to live with his lover. Did he love his children? Did they love him? Why is their mother so superficial and completely uninterested in her children? These are some of the many empty spaces in this book that are never truly filled in. Having expressed all these concerns, I still give the book three stars because Ms. George writes beautifully, and I remain loyal to these characters. My sincere plea to Ms. George: please get back to who Lynley really is, what his relationships with the central recurring characters are really about, and please use one of the great characters in detective fiction, Barbara Havers, to her fullest advantage. With these characters as central figures, the "who-done-it" becomes that much more interesting. In "Believing the Lie" there is an unduly complicated story with lots of storylines, and not many (if any) real people whose plight we care about. In other words, this isn't the kind of Lynley novel that has given this wonderful series its much-deserved excellent reputation.

  • After reading a few reviews I have to say I wasn't sure about this book but being such a huge fan I just couldn't resist. First things first. We all miss Helen terribly but writing bad reviews isn't going to bring her back. That being said this book was certainly one of her more average ones. I for one kind of like the recovery path Ms George has Tommy on. I'm also amongst the majority when I say"something has to be done about Debra". Good grief does that woman get on one's last nerves! And not to be a spoiler but this time Ms George shouldn't let her get off so easy for what she was responsible for at the end of this book,I mean seriously I just wanted to reach inside the pages and ring her neck. But with that I just wanted to remind a few of you out there writing such scathing reviews that this series is fictional. These characters don't actually exist. So just take it for what it is and enjoy it. If you don't think that's any longer possible then for heaven's sake stop reading the series. It's just that simple. I for one am about to purchase just one evil act. Personally Deception on his mind is one of my favorites and if just one evil act is half as good as it I'll be a happy reader.
