Well-schooled in murder
Elizabeth George
Adult Fiction GEORGE

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Thomas Lynley (the earl turned policeman) and Sergeant Havers focus their prodigious talents on uncovering the murderer of a young boy from an exclusive independent school near London. While author George necessarily centers the plot on solving the case, she adroitly plumbs the emotional and psychological depths of fully fleshed characters coping with various forms of personal stress in addition to the murder. As in her previous work ( A Great Deliverance ; Payment in Blood , LJ 7/1/89), George offers refined, feeling prose, an abiding sense of humanity, and a pervasive undercurrent of mystery. A necessary purchase, exceedingly fair and full of grace. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 4/1/90. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
