    This was a tragedy Not only did George attempt to develop the character of Deborah St James and turn her from a sympathetic supporting character into a harpy from hell who is as irritating as she is selfish, spoiled, and childish BUT, the plot strained the reasonable credibility one expects in a murder mystery Seriously, a civilian would be allowed to investigate like that The rest of the novel and plot were interesting and, I dare say believable IF a real police officer were involved.

    In order to read a George novel you have to clear the deck Her dense prose and rich characters mean you need a supreme effort to gear up for each book, and then she spins a tale in which gradually each suspect is shown not to be the killer, while at the same time sh...

    Elizabeth George has been one of my favorite mystery writers since I read her first book The thing I like best is her ability to create several related strands of plot and, by the end of the book, weave them together into a coherent whole Often each strand affords Ms George an opportunity to examine a different aspect of whatever she has chosen for her theme, aside from the murder It gives her mysteries a depth and complexity that most murder mysteries don t possess In this book, Ms George Elizabeth George has been one of my favorite mystery writers since I read her first book The thing I like best is her ability to create several related strands of plot and, by the end of the book, weave them together into a coherent whole Often each strand affords Ms George an opportunity to examine a different aspect of whatever she has chosen for her theme, aside from the murder It gives her mysteries a depth and complexity that most murder mysteries don t possess In this book, Ms George has chosen to examine familial relationships particularly sibling relationships And she does it well I enjoyed this book slightly less than most of her others because I found myself becoming really annoyed with the two protagonists, Simon and Deborah Unfortunately, I became really annoyed really early in the book For one thing, the dialog between them doesn t ring true For another, they re both so extremely prickly and tightly wound that they ti...

    As I began reading a Place of Hiding, I realized that I d read the book a few years before Knowing who did the crime gave me the chance to explore the story in ways other than as an armchair Sherlock I was not disappointed As much as I remember appreciating the book the first time through, I don t think it compares with my appreciation for the book this time through.The first time through, I only noted the wonderful depictions of some of the minor and even major characters and their relations As I began reading a Place of Hiding, I realized that I d read the book a few years before Knowing who did the crime gave me the chance to explore the story in ways other than as an armchair Sherlock I was not disappointed As much as I remember appreciating the book the first time through, I don t think it compares with my appreciation for...

    Even though this is not a Lynley Havers book, I read it because of George s ability to create characters and subplots All the characters except the main characters ring true and were developed well Cherokee and China, though, didn t garner my sympathy, and St James and Deborah need to grow as a married couple and as individuals I wanted to see Deborah stop throwing tantrums I did, however, learn from her how to structure plot Because I didn t focus on the main characters like I do when Lyn Even though this is not a Lynley Havers book, I read it because of George s ability to create characters and subplots All the characters except the main characters ring true and were developed well Cherokee and China, though, didn t garner my sympathy, and St James and Deborah need to grow as a married couple and as individuals I wanted to see Deborah stop thro...
