    SPITALFIELDS

    LONDON

    Since it was only to be a weekend jaunt to Marrakesh, Lily Foster reckoned they could use one suitcase, and a carry-on at that. What did they need to take, really? It had been deadly cold, grey, and wet in London since the middle of November, but it wasn’t going to be that way in North Africa. They would spend most of their time lounging round the pool, anyway, and when they weren’t doing that, they’d be getting romantic in their room, for which, obviously, they needed no clothes at all.

    Packing took less than ten minutes. Sandals, summer trousers, a tee-shirt for William. Sandals, a clingy frock, and a scarf for her. Swimming suits for them both and a few other essentials. That was it. Then began the wait, which—confirmed by a glance at the plastic wall clock ticking away above the cooker—should have been less than thirty minutes. But it stretched instead into more than two hours during which time she texted him and she phoned him as well, only to receive no response. Just his pleasant voice saying “This is Will. Tell me and I’ll tell you back,” to which she said, “Where are you, William? I thought the job was only in Shoreditch. And why’re you still there in this rotten weather? Ring me soon as you get this, okay?”

    Lily went to the window. The afternoon was spitting rain outside, the sky dark and angry with erupting clouds. In the best of weather, this particular housing estate was grim: a mixture of filthy brick blocks of flats tossed by the handful across a level plain, which was crisscrossed by cracked and heaving pavements that the residents ignored in favour of trudging across a dying patchwork of lawns. In weather like this, the place looked like a death trap and what was at risk of extermination was hope. They didn’t belong here, and Lily knew it. It was bad for her; it was worse for William. But it was what they could afford for now, and it was where they would remain until she built her business larger than what it was and William had his own on firmer footing.

    That part was tricky: William’s business. He regularly argued with his clients, and people didn’t like that when they were paying someone to work for them.

    “You do have to take on board what people think,” she kept telling him.

    “People,” he countered, “need to stay out of my way. I can’t concentrate when they yammer at me. Why don’t they get that? It’s not like I don’t tell them straightaway.”

    Well, yes, right, Lily thought. Telling people was part of the problem. William needed to stop doing that.

    Lily frowned down at the street. There was no one on the pavements below, certainly no William with his collar up, making a dash from his car to the narrow tower that contained their building’s lift. Instead there was only a woman on a balcony of the block of flats sitting at an angle to theirs. She was gathering laundry in her arms, her bright yellow sari whipped by the wind. As for the rest of the buildings’ balconies with their lines of dispirited laundry and their children’s toys and their few haggard-looking plants and—always—their satellite dishes, whatever they contained was being left to fend for itself in the weather.

    Through the window Lily could dimly hear the unrelenting city noise: the squeal of tyres on wet pavement as a car took a corner too swiftly, the metallic roar of a building site where yet something else was being redeveloped nearby but out of...

    A threatened transfer to the north of England subdues Det. Sgt. Barbara Havers of London’s Metropolitan Police in bestseller George’s uneven 19th Lynley novel (after 2013’s Just One Evil Act). Barbara’s investigation of the murder of feminist writer Clare Abbott leads her to the writer’s personal assistant, Caroline Goldacre, a middle-aged busybody who verbally abused and threatened Clare. The author sensitively depicts Det. Insp. Thomas Lynley, Barbara’s partner, as he puts his own job on the line to help her. Barbara’s secretary’s efforts to send her
    on dates provide some comic relief. Unfortunately, the novel becomes bogged down exploring Caroline’s extensive family problems—divorce, adultery, child abuse, marital squabbles—to the point where readers may begin to worry they have stumbled by mistake into a sprawling family saga. Both the detectives and the mystery recede into the background in an entry that may try the patience of even the most dedicated series fans. Six-city author tour. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group.

    The courtly Inspector Lynley and rougher-edged Sgt. Havers meet again for another adventure in genteel mayhem. Is anyone in England happy? Not to gauge by this latest yarn of George's (Just One Evil Act, 2013, etc.), which ranges from the white cliffs of Dorset to the whiter districts of London. Young William Goldacre, on the face of it, is aptly named: he has a girlfriend who's affectionate, if "a pierced and tattooed creature" with an unusual-enough look to scare the country gentry, and he's a wizard in the garden, "expert, visionary, artist, and laborer." So why did Will sneak off and throw himself into the churning sea as if an extra in Quadrophenia? That's a question for psychologists to ponder. If, that is, they have a minute to spare, for the self-help author caught up in events turns up dead, too, and those on whom suspicion falls have problems of their own: the author's editor goes around with a PAD-a "psychological assistance dog," that is-while Will's mum, who's bound up in all this mess, may or may not be a pathological liar with a murderous streak. Meanwhile, Inspector Lynley, who knows his way around a martini glass and the Tate, finds himself in conversations about just why Sgt. Havers never bothers to fix her hair. Caught up in the slough of despond, the assorted cast should barely have energy to commit crime and cover it up, much less solve the mischief. Yet they manage to pull themselves together and do that heavy lifting. Heaviness, too, figures into the tale, as does depression, madness, jealousy, and the ordinary misunderstandings-a trademark George scenario, that is, including apparent mishaps that have more sinister causes. In her 20th mystery, George delivers just what she always has: storylines that take a long time to resolve and narratives that are a shade too long but that in the end are always satisfying.

    Starred review from August 1, 2015
    The impetuous behavior of DS Barbara Havers, which has embarrassed her New Scotland Yard superiors in the past, has been curbed by threat of a transfer. But a reigned-in Havers lacks the spark that made her such a valued colleague to DI Thomas Lynley, who manipulates circumstances for Havers to pursue a murder case outside her jurisdiction. Feminist author Clare Abbott's death is thought to be caused by a seizure and heart attack, but a second autopsy shows that she was poisoned. Weeks later, Abbott's editor and close friend, Rory Statham, nearly dies from the same poison. Suspicion and circumstantial evidence center on Abbott's assistant, Caroline Goldacre, an increasingly volatile pathological liar still grieving the suicide of her younger adult son years earlier. Havers, paired with DS Winston Nkata, and Lynley join forces to eventually uncover secrets behind the breach between Abbott and Goldacre. This nineteenth Lynley novel is a sterling addition to George's acclaimed character-centered series: even the most minor characters are full-bodied, and the personal lives of Lynley and Havers are advanced nicely. Although an eleventh-hour revelation falls a bit flat (despite ringing true), George's fluid prose and intricate plotting should delight fans and win new ones.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)

    Starred review from September 1, 2015

    George's 19th entry in her series featuring Scotland Yard's DI Thomas Lynley and DS Barbara Havers (after One Evil Act) finds Havers busy keeping her nose clean to protect her job. Lynley worries that her caution is making her a less effective police officer. Meanwhile, she tries to build some semblance of a life for herself by attending a lecture by a celebrated feminist author named Clare Abbot. When Abbot dies suddenly of heart failure, her editor and friend Rory Statham is suspicious and asks Havers to investigate. A second autopsy reveals evidence of poisoning. Lynley helps Havers finagle her way into overseeing the case in Dorset where the author had lived. Her digging reveals a great deal about Abbot's personal assistant. Apparently Abbot was researching the woman's background, but why? The mystery is slowly unraveled, and the solution is shocking. VERDICT Readers who relish a measured pace and steadily built suspense will be hooked by this psychologically complex crime novel. George's many fans as well those who enjoy Tana French or Louise Penny will also be enthralled. [See Prepub Alert, 4/13/15.]--Kristen Stewart, Pearland Lib., Brazoria Cty. Lib. Syst., TX
