Did she poison him deliberately or was it an accident? Barbara Havers? I'm right now working on a book that involves Lynley and Havers.

It takes place in Cornwall. I had to ask this because I'm so fond of Lynley and trust him so much that I drink his favorite whiskey when I can afford if Lagavulin single malt and go to his favorite pubs in Cornwall whenever I get to that part of the world. And, then I also wantted to know how can she an American writer, born in Ohio, raised in California, living now in Seattle, Washinton know enough about what goes in the mind of a 12 year old, abandoned, mixed-race inner city London boy to make him so real to the reader.
Why isn't she writing about American murderers in American cities? The point is to be able to create a character out of nothing. I attempt to understand a particular cultural phenomenon or an institution or an area so for example I would go to all these places mentioned in my new book. I would certainly do research to understand what's going on in these neighbourhoods but then there comes the point where I leap into fiction.
Elizabeth George used to teach school in California. She got fired from her first teaching job because she'd organized teachers at her school into one of the state's first unions. But she moved on to another high school and started teaching kids how to write. This was before she'd ever published any of her Inspector Lynley novels.
Fact is, Elizabeth Goerge had been writing from the time she was 7. He never saw them again.

Joseph O'Loughlin appears to have the perfect life: a beautiful wife, a loving daughter, and a successful career as a clinical psychologist. But nothing can be taken for granted. Even the most flawless existence is only one loose thread away from unravelling. All it takes is a murdered girl, a troubled young patient - and the biggest lie of his life. When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide.
However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case. Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger Two weeks before D-day, the French Resistance attacks a chateau containing a telephone exchange vital to German communications - but the building is heavily guarded, and the attack fails disastrously.
Flick Clairet, a young British secret agent, proposes a daring new plan: she will parachute into France with an all-woman team known as the Jackdaws, and they will penetrate the chateau in disguise. But, unknown to Flick, Rommel has assigned a brilliant, ruthless intelligence colonel, Dieter Franck, to crush the Resistance. And Dieter is on Flick's trail On a freezing morning four drunken students stumble upon the body of a woman in the snow. Rosie has been raped, stabbed and left for dead in a cemetery.
The only suspects are the four young men now stained with her blood. But when two of them die in suspicious circumstances, it seems that someone is pursuing their own brand of justice Up until now the only serial killers Tony Hill had encountered were safely behind bars.
Four men have been found mutilated and tortured. As fear grips the city, the police turn to clinical psychologist Tony Hill for a profile of the killer. But soon Tony becomes the unsuspecting target in a battle of wits and wills, where he has to use every ounce of his professional nerve to survive. It's DS Logan McRae's first day back on the job after a year off on the sick, and it couldn't get much worse. Three-year-old David Reid's body is discovered in a ditch: strangled, mutilated and a long time dead. And he's only the first.
There's a serial killer stalking the Granite City, and the local media are baying for blood.

Soon the dead are piling up in the morgue almost as fast as the snow on the streets, and Logan knows time is running out. More children are going missing. More are going to die. A storm. A black man finds a white baby abandoned in the night. He gathers her up - light as a star - and decides to take her home. After the financial crash. Leo Kaiser knows how to make money, but he doesn't know how to manage the jealousy he feels towards his best friend and his wife. Is his newborn baby even his? In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack.
She and her boyfriend, Kit, call the police, and in that moment it is not only the victim's life that is changed forever. Fifteen years on, Laura and Kit live in fear. And while Laura knows she was right to speak out, the events that follow have taught her that you can never see the whole picture: something - and someone - is always in the dark Twenty-five-year-old Lizzie Bartholomew has had more than her fair share of struggles. Abandoned as a baby, she spent her childhood moving between foster homes. Now she is running away from her past A holiday in Morocco seems to be the perfect escape.
Especially when she meets Philip, a fellow tourist who distracts her from her troubles. After a brief affair, Lizzie returns to England, to a solicitor's letter. Philip Samson has died. But there are conditions attached to this unexpected legacy Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene.
Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival.
The dead woman looks exactly like Maura. Within a week, the DNA lab delivers a stunning verdict. Facing life alone, they turned to crime together. Dolly Rawlins, Linda Perelli and Shirley Miller are left devastated when their husbands are killed in a security van heist that goes disastrously wrong. When Dolly discovers her husband's bank deposit box containing a gun, money and detailed plans for the hijack, she has three options.
She could hand over the ledgers to the Detective. She could hand them over to the thugs who want to take over Harry's turf. Or, she and the other widows could finish the job their husbands started Under arrest for the crime is a twelve-year-old boy, Joel Campbell. What possible motive could he have? What chain of events could have led such a child from the housing estates of North Kensington to the elegant streets of Belgravia with such deadly intent?
The answer to these questions is a complex mixture of fate and circumstance. Abandoned albeit involuntarily by his parents, Joel and two siblings are dumped on the doorstep of his aunt's house. Kendra, childless and with two marriages behind her, is doing her best to turn her life around; responsibility for three troubled children is not what she had in mind.
Drugs, neglect, violence and poverty are commonplace in North Kensington. Joel does his best to look out for his family, but that involves a Faustian pact. And the Devil will have his pay. What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you? Elizabeth George is a good writer and this "background" book without Linley and only a miniature entrance of the other DIs in the final chapter would have been great had it been read by Davina Porter or anyone else but Inika Wright.
Her performance was stilted and full of falseness but it was the pronunciation errors - yes errors - and there were lots, as well as some personal idiosyncracies that irrated and finally spoiled it for me. I will never b uy another book narrated by her. And what was the producer thinking. Outright errors where she used a wrong name should have been corrected. George deserves better as this is an essential stepping stone to future Linley tales. The slow change in Ness as Magida gradually gained her mind and confidence, only to have it so firmly shattered in the Neil incident was heart rending.
