A confession: I'm addicted to 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.
The author writes brilliantly and has an incredible ability to set a scene and create characters you want to know more about.
Presses all the buttons to make us hoover her stuff up
She's a designer of fastidious mosaics that never fail to intrigue
A cool, clever book that needs concentration and a sharp brain to unravel
A fascinating read
