Elizabeth George writes books I want to read. If I were somehow in charge of everything, she would come out with a new book immediately after I finished the previous one. (Please note: I do not advocate author abuse. I want her to live a long and healthy life. I just hope she writes lots and lots more because I like it.)

Her latest book, Believing the Lie, however, is not my favorite. I do not want to be a spoiler, but one particular plot twist and the characters’ reactions to it bothered me; I also think she cheated on the resolution of that particular plot line. Happy to discuss with anyone who has finished the book.

As an entry into the continuing saga of her main characters’ lives, however, the book is more satisfactory. Both Lynley and Havers deal with big issues. I’m a little peeved at the ending, which has nothing to do with the book-centered plot and everything to do with the recurring characters. It is a cliff-hanger of epic proportions and that’s just painful.

May she resolve that cliff-hanger soon.
