Presses all the buttons to make us hoover her stuff up
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 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".
She's a designer of fastidious mosaics that never fail to intrigue
The best plotter in the mystery game, [her] elegant literate flow puts many Brits to shame
