Praise for Elizabeth George: Her crime novels combine Victorian craftsmanship, psychological observation and ingenious plotting. George's celebrated attention to detail keeps the reader totally immersed. Bliss.
She's a designer of fastidious mosaics that never fail to intrigue
Presses all the buttons to make us hoover her stuff up
The best plotter in the mystery game, [her] elegant literate flow puts many Brits to shame
She writes extremely well, plots brilliantly and reaches an emotional level deeper than most
Her treatment of the Mediterranean settings (along with a raft of intriguing new characters) shows a new exuberance . . . George aficionados will consider that Just One Evil Act possesses (as Schumann said of Schubert's Great C Major symphony) "heavenly length".
