  1. It s been four years since we last caught up with Inspector Thomas Lynley and Sgt Barbara Havers Four very long years.Four years made longer by the fact that at the end of With No One As Witness, Elizabeth George left Lynley and the entire series as a cross roads Something big happened at the end of the book that left me stunned at the audacity of George to contemplate it, much less pull it off And it left me eager for .And then we got her last book, What Came Before He Shot Her, which w It s been four years since we last caught up with Inspector Thomas Lynley and Sgt Barbara Havers Four very long years.Four years made longer by the fact that at the end of With No One As Witness, Elizabeth George left Lynley and the entire series as a cross roads Something big happened at the end of the book that left me stunned at the audacity of George to contemplate it, much less pull it off And it left me eager for .And then we got her last book, What Came Before He Shot Her, which was good but didn t quite satisfy the craving and yearning I had forLynley and Havers.Finally, we get Careless in Red And it was worth every last day she made us wait for it.Careless in Red opens a few months after the events of With No One as Witness Lynley, in his depression over his wife and unborn child s death, has gone on a walk and a rather long one He s wandering up the British coast,...

  2. Okay, I think we ve got the train back on track We have Lynley, we have Havers Whew This should go without saying, but after the dreck that was What Came Before He Shot Her , you cannot take these things for granted.Other than the presence of Lynley and Havers, though, I m not that crazy about this installment I didn t like any of the other secondary characters, and actively disliked most of them The few that I did like eventually ended up annoying me too.

  3. Disappointing For starters, the book was way too long and the build up was extremely slow Elizabeth George has enjoyed a successful career, with good reason mostly, and she seems to have reached the point where people are afraid to edit her It happens to a lot of authors, and it s unfortunate Even the best authors need editors, especially after they ve started believing their own hype.There were also too many confusing subplots I kept forgetting which pairs were brother and sister and which Disappointing For starters, the book was way too long and the build up was extremely slow Elizabeth George has enjoyed a successful career, with good reason mostly, and she seems to have reached the point where people are afraid to edit her It happens to a lot of authors, and it s unfortunate Even the best authors need editors, especially after they ve started believing their own hype.There were also too many confusing subplots I kept forgetting which pairs were brother and sister and which were boyfriend and girlfriend, whose father was who, whose father owned the surfing store and whose father was building the extreme sports place and which of them forbade his son to surf, when that son was the murder victim but which family did he come from again There was one subplot in particular which took up a lot of room and was,...

  7. I picked this book up because I have watched Thomas Linley on Mystery on PBS and they were okay The last one I had seen was where his pregnant wife why do they always have to be pregnant had been killed They had also just gotten back together after being separated All the elements to make it truly tragic She was killed by a 12 year old with no motive, just a senseless killing On TV they had a different storyline about what happened Anyway, he is dealing with that tragedy by walking a I picked this book up because I have watched Thomas Linley on Mystery on PBS and they were okay The last one I had seen was where his pregnant wife why do they always have to be pregnant had been killed They had also just gotten back together after being separated All the elements to make it truly tragic She was killed by a 12 year old with no motive, just a senseless killing On TV they had a different storyline about what happened Anyway, he is dealing with that tragedy by walking along the coast with only a backpack to carry small amounts of food So of course he finds a body and the story progresses from there This book was irritating in a number of ways, but I think the worst was in the portrayal of families and how dysfunctional all of them are Worse, Lynley isn t that compelling of a character Maybe he is if you have read other books in the series, but he is boring and predictable in this book Of course he meets...

  8. Well written, good characters, good plot Even though I had read a few of hers earlier, I had somehow forgotten about the series This book a Christmas gift was a real reminder of how good Elizabeth George is in her genre and I re read the whole series following this read I m sure I ll do that again

  9. I ve read all the Thomas Lynley novels and found them all to be a cut above most detective series, partly because George develops complicated characters who lead complex lives Careless in Red, despite the somewhat trite title, isof a sprawling family novel than it is a mystery Several family sagas are played out, incorporating the intergenerational conflict that binds individual family members to each other and intertwines them for good and ill with other families involved in the story I ve read all the Thomas Lynley novels and found them all to be a cut above most detective series, partly because George develops complicated characters who lead complex lives Careless in Red, despite the somewhat trite title, isof a sprawling family novel than it is a mystery Several family sagas are played out, incorporating the intergenerational conflict that binds individual family members to each other and intertwines them for good and ill with other families involved in the story Lynley, who is still trying to come to terms with his wife s senseless murder, gets drawn into the drama by accident, but his reluctance is overcome by his natural instincts.One thing Elizabeth George does well is set a scene The denizens of Cornwall and the countryside are concrete and unique I ve never been to England, but I have a sense that after reading George s book, I would have a familiarity with the place I wouldn t feel r...

  11. Elizabeth George at her very best You begin to feel that the characters are people you know well, and the dead body, the person who committed the murder, had me fooled to the very end I can usually figure out whodunit quickly, so this was a great surprise The only problem with any of her books, when you re finished with it, you feel a sense of loss because the story is over, and the characters are now no longer a part of your life I wish she would write the novels quicker, but then, they wo Elizabeth George at her very best You begin to feel that the characters are people you know well, and the dead body, the person who committed the murder, had me fooled to the very end I can usually figure out whodunit quickly, so this was a great surprise The only problem with any of her books, when you re finished with it, you feel a sense of loss because the story is over, and the characters are now no long...
