Linley is under so much pressure from the press and his boss, Hillier, he is. .I hope to eventually forgive Ms. George, because I enjoyed the series prior to "With No One As Witness".

Linley is under so much pressure from the press and his boss, Hillier, he is close to breaking point. Added to this, Nkata has been promoted by Hillier for all the wrong reasons, Barbara Havers has not had her rank reinstated and there the clock is ticking to stop this killer, before another body is discovered. For now, I won't read any more Elizabeth George novels because of this one. I was so angry at what she did to the characters that I swore off her altogether. For now, I'll have to be content with The Inspector Lynley series on PB.

Detective Constable Barbara Havers considered herself one lucky bird: Th. In this case, the lights meant nothing

Detective Constable Barbara Havers considered herself one lucky bird: Th. WO. Despite the early hour at which he rose the nex. In this case, the lights meant nothing. The uncurtained dark windows along with the To Let sign told him that no one resided in the house to his right, while the house to his left had no windows on this side of it and no dog to set up a spate of barking in the nighttime cold. He was, as far as he could tell, in the clear. French windows opened onto the patio, and Kimmo made for these.

Acclaimed author Elizabeth George brings her extraordinary talents to this intriguing . With No One As Witness.

Acclaimed author Elizabeth George brings her extraordinary talents to this intriguing story that blends mystery and myth. History & Fiction. As both Barbara and her partner, Inspector Thomas Lynley, soon discover, the case is far more complex than a typical kidnapping, revealing secrets that could have far-reaching effects outside of the investigation. The police never suspected a serial killer was at large until they found the fourth murdered boy - the first white victim - his body draped over a tomb in a London graveyard.

Crime fans will find plenty of forensic minutiae and details of police bureaucracy and politics, but it's characterization at which George really excels. The up-and-down career of Havers is at low ebb following her demotion from sergeant to constable, and her rocky personal life doesn't make that easier to bear

Author: Elizabeth George. Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley takes on the case of his career.

ACTING SUPERINTENDENT Thomas Lynley felt the distinct need to follow Havers. Not one Stephen Lawrence but three. At the same time, he recognised the wisdom of staying put. Ultimately, he knew, he’d probably be better able to do her service if at least one of them managed to remain in AC Hillier’s good graces. With no excuse to be had but the most obvious, which Barbara Havers herself had stated in her usual, politically unastute manner: institutionalised racism that resulted in the police not actively pursuing the killers of young mixed-race boys and blacks. Hillier was carefully oiling the skids in preparation.

“[A] juicy serial killer whodunit.”—USA Today

“Delicately textured...achingly compassionate....It’s one of George’s best, and that’s saying something.”—Seattle Times

The 13th novel in Elizabeth George’s acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Inspector Linley crime fiction series, With No One as Witness is arguably the most riveting, shocking, and emotionally compelling of the lot. The hunt for a serial killer who has been murdering and mutilating young boys in London has Scotland Yard Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley and his team of investigators racing to stop the slaughter, only to have the investigation nearly derailed by one devastating, truly game changing event. An American author, George has been praised as “a master of the British mystery” by the New York Times, one of only two Yanks whose crime novels have been adapted for the PBS TV series, “Mystery,”  and her exceptional police procedurals rank with the best of Ian Rankin, Peter Robinson, and Ruth Rendell.

  • I am a long time devote. I began reading the Lynley series when A Great Deliverance was first published in paperback - loved it! I patiently awaited each new paperback release through A Place of Hiding at which point I ran out of steam, in no small part because in this story Lynley only had a cameo appearance. I read these novels especially for the Lynley/Havers relationship. I recently returned to Ms. George with this novel after some friends, who had recently discovered Lynley, were singing Elizabeth George’s praises. I’ve down loaded What Came Before He Shot Her, but will probably skip it for the time being. According to a review, Lynley/Havers only have a cameo appearance again; therefore, I’ll move on to Careless in Red. Now, some general comments about Ms. George. Her great strength is that she elevates her crime novels virtually to the level of literature through her insights and the development of her main characters, who grow and change both within each book, as well as over the series. She is an excellent writer with a great vocabulary; however, she can become a little too stylized occasionally. Over the years her books have become longer and longer. While I feel cheated if a novel is only 300 pages 800 is pushing it. I don’t think writers are paid by the word anymore. Brevity is better. This novel was complicated but you can suss out the culprit before the end through the process of elimination. She overuses the word demur in her last two or three novels. Notwithstanding these minor objections, a satisfying read. I wasn’t bogged down

  • I must confess I'm an Elizabeth George fan. Having arrived at this book in the series, I feel I know the main players like friends. Someone wrote in a review that killing of ---(don't want to give it away) was too much and it stopped them reading any more. This in fact shows how intimately we have come to know the characters and hence we grieve as though the person was real. That's the skill of EG as a writer: real characters, excellent story telling!

  • Elizabeth George writes great books. I have read all of them except What Came Before He Shot Her. I was one of her readers who was upset about that shooting. I ordered this book because it was missing from my collection. I have all of her other Inspector Lynley books and have now begun to watch the series on DVD.

  • This has got to be the most intense book of the Lynley-Havers series. Not so sure I felt comfortable with the ending, though. One thing missing, which was a blessing, George didn't focus upon those two difficult women (Deb and Helen) and their issues with their men. I have become very annoyed and impatient over the prevailing theme of "pander unto me" in her prior books per the the two love interests, Deb and Helen. George presents both gals as very vain, immature, and often PMS'y! I do think that George has dumbed both of them down in last few books, particularly Helen (Deb was never the sharpest knife in the drawer). Barbara (Havers) is more the "real" woman in this series of great mysteries. Glad to see that Barbara got more stage presence in this latest, greatest Lynley-Havers mystery.

  • spending the last part of an evening with an allotted period in which to read the next of this series. There are times, at this point, that characters and their lives are real. As it should be in well written fiction.

  • The Inspector Lynley series is one of my favorites and in this particular novel author Elizabeth George makes a major turn in direction, giving us a plot that features a serial killer (not the usual George fare) and a 'simple twist of fate' that changes Lynley's life forever.

    There are other less dramatic, but important, shifts as well. Barbara Havers, Lynley's partner and one of my favorite female cop characters, appears to be coming out of her brittle shell, courtesy of a little Muslim girl who lives next door. This is a big deal for Havers, who keeps to herself and often alienates others with her outspoken and impatient behavior.

    It remains to be seen how these big alterations in story trajectory will impact future novels, which is why I am awarding this book four stars instead of my usual five for a Lynley novel. I am reading this series in the order it was written, so I don't yet know how this all turns out, even though the follow up novel to this one has already been published.

    One of the features of this series that I am especially attracted to is its backdrop of English class consciousness that George deftly weaves throughout the story. Everything these characters do is influenced by the traditional English class system, with Lynley's inherited, aristocratic title (he's an earl) providing a trigger for social commentary. As an American, I never really appreciated the oppressiveness of rigid categories of social class that are incredibly durable, even in a modern democratic state such as the UK. It's easy to gloss over these differences or even to romanticize the ladies and lords of high society when your own experience in the US is far removed from the feelings of inferiority that a class system perpetuates. I very much like the fact that George exposes them and raises questions about merit versus entitlement in a nation that purports to value social justice.

    This is not to imply that the US and other western democracies are superior to the UK in terms of entitlement or equity. We have our own aristocracy, after all, and in some ways they are less deserving than the blue bloods of Britain. Why should the privileges accorded to NBA players, business tycoons of questionable ethics or the stars of romantic comedies be considered any less odious than those bestowed at birth to the British upper class?
