Críticas:

Praise for Elizabeth George and her Novels
"Elizabeth George is a superstar of the crime-fiction world, British Inspector Division. Deservedly so: Her tails always provide nuanced character studies and insights into social issues along with their intricate mysteries."
"The Seattle Times "on "Believing the Lie"
Definitely a literary force to be reckoned with.
"Suspense Magazine"
It s tough to resist George s storytelling, once hooked.
"USA Today"
"Riveting tale of love, passion, and betrayal...series fans will enjoy following Lynley and Havers on their first investigation outside the U.K., while newcomers will be just as enthralled."
"Publishers Weekly"(starred review) on "Just One Evil Act"
""Just One Evil Act" [is] among the most demanding and satisfying of the many detective novels by Elizabeth George."
"The Wall Street Journal"
"A serious, suspenseful, thought-provoking and heart-rending novel."
"Richmond Times Dispatch "on "Just One Evil Act"
George is a master of the wily plot and the timely tossed out red herring George s fans will be glad to see Havers back in action, even though, as ever, she s quick to land in trouble. And as for Lynley well, he s as cool as ever, in more than one sense of the word.
"Kirkus Reviews" on "Just One Evil Act "
"This is a must for fans of this series. Twists and turns are vintage George and do not disappoint."
"Library Journal" on "Just One Evil Act"
"A multiplicity of subplots and a richness of physical detail...The terrain and the weather are objective correlatives to the characters' stormy patches. Meanwhile, the story strands are untied and retied in satisfying and often moving ways."
"The Wall Street Journal "on "Believing the Lie"
"Devilishly complicated."
"Entertainment Weekly "on "Believing the Lie"
"A dense, twisty plot with characters who reveal the sad spectrum of human dereliction."
"People "on "Believing the Lie"
"George's...ability to continually enhance the portraits of Lynley, Havers, and other recurring characters while generating fully fleshed new ones for each novel is nothing less than superlative, and her atmospheric prose, complete with lovely and detailed descriptions of her setting, combines to add literary gravitas to her work....A worthy addition to her portfolio and one that simultaneously disturbs and satisfies."
"Richmond Times-Dispatch"
This is one of her best.

Reseña del editor:

George s mystery unfolds with great psychological depth, finely drawn characters and gorgeous portraits of the English countryside. . . . [George] is an essential writer of popular fiction today. The Washington Post
The #1 New York Times bestselling author s award-winning series returns with another stunning crime drama featuring Scotland Yard members Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers.

The unspoken secrets and buried lies of one family rise to the surface in Elizabeth George s newest novel of crime, passion, and tragic history. As Inspector Thomas Lynley investigates the London angle of an ever more darkly disturbing case, his partner, Barbara Havers, is looking behind the peaceful facade of country life to discover a twisted world of desire and deceit.
The suicide of William Goldacre is devastating to those left behind who will have to deal with its unintended consequences could there be a link between the young man s leap from a Dorset cliff and a horrific poisoning in Cambridge?
After various issues with her department, Barbara Havers is desperate to redeem herself. So when a past encounter gives her a connection to the unsolved Cambridge murder, Barbara begs Thomas Lynley to let her pursue the crime, knowing one mistake could mean the end of her career.
Full of shocks, intensity, and suspense from the first page to the last, A Banquet of Consequences reveals both Lynley and Havers under mounting pressure to solve a case both complicated and deeply disturbing.
