Something to Hide: A Lynley Novel | Elizabeth George
11 posts | 9 read | 1 to read
Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley are back in the next Lynley novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George. When a police detective is taken off life support after falling into a coma, only an autopsy reveals the murderous act that precipitated her death. She'd been working on a special task force within North London's Nigerian community, and Acting Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley is assigned to the case, which has far-reaching cultural associations having nothing to do with life as he knows it. In his pursuit of a killer determined to remain hidden, he's assisted by Detective Sergeants Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata. They must sort through the lies and the secret lives of people whose superficial cooperation masks the damage they do to one another.

Never have almost 700 pages sped by so fast! A fascinating, multifaceted mystery featuring the Inspector Lynley cohort. As often happens with these books, there‘s a topical element at the heart of the story, in this case female genital multinational, which is handled very sensitively. The plot moves along, lots of interesting characters, and a couple red herrings. In an up-and-down series, this is way up.

CarolynM I read the first 5 or 6 and enjoyed them (although with some reservations - the relationships are well weird!) but I kind of lost interest. I might have to give this one a try. 3w

I made a library visit today, and came home with this #chunkster among my #libraryhaul. Forget the book I started yesterday—I‘m already 70 pages in.

Penny_LiteraryHoarders I ripped through this one! Never wanted the 700+ pages to end. One of her best! 4w
Lynnsoprano @Penny_LiteraryHoarders It‘s already hard to put down 😊 4w
Penny_LiteraryHoarders @Lynnsoprano right?? Excellent characters! Excellent story! Enjoy! 4w

Elizabeth George‘s latest requires a bit of an effort as it clocks in at 691 pages, but it‘s a quick read, and we‘ll worth the time. With her usual high commitment to research, George presents us with a story, and a murder, that revolve around the horrific practice of female genital mutilation (FMG). We meet the Bankhole family, one of whom wants 8 year old Simi to be “made pure” for her future husband. Bad good guys, and good bad guys abound.

WOW. I haven't read anything like this before. It's more than just a mystery book.

Mehso-so

I‘ve read everything Elizabeth George has written, but her last few books have left me feeling kind of meh. This one is about Nigerians in London and clocks in at nearly 700 pages. It‘s a slog to find out whodunnit, and I wish there had been more about Detective Lynley and his crew, rather than the Nigerians.

Bk8 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 is done! I actually finished this last night just haven‘t had a chance to post till now. This was hard to read at times, the topic, FGM & it‘s practice in England specifically, is a very emotional subject but the author handles it extremely well. A few storylines are drawn together into a great instalment in the Lynley series, here‘s hoping for a 22nd! #BookspinBjngo #Doublespin #Pop22 #SeriesRead2022👇

TheSpineView Excellant! 👍📖📚 7mo

Heading into the last hours of #JoyousJanuary #readathon and I‘m about a third of the way through the new Inspector Lynley. I‘m finding it hard to read a bit because it‘s about such an awful topic, FGM. There‘s intertwining stories, one about a young man trying to protect his little sister, another about a DS who is murdered & her involvement in bringing people involved in FGM to justice. Such a sad subject😢 #JumpStart2022

Andrew65 That would be difficult to read about. I struggle to read about abuse. A great time. 👏👏👏🙌 7mo
Clwojick Good job 💖 7mo
