Careless in Red. Elizabeth George. 2008. As always, the Inspector Thomas Lynley novels are a treat for me. The book right before this one, What Came before He Shot Her, does not concern Lynley. I read it as a stand-alone several years before I discovered the Lynley novels and did not go back as re-read it. So I read With No One as Witness and then Careless in Red. Any reader who is enthralled with Lynley might want to do the same. Lynley took Helen “home” to Cornwall and walked the coast for miles as he mourned for her and their lost marriage and son. After days of walking alone, he discovers a body, and becomes involved, first as a suspect and then as an investigator. Barbara Havers is sent down from London to keep an eye on him and to help him. Surfing and climbing and Cornwall are featured. I was more interested in Lynley and his grief than I was in the affairs of the murdered boy and the suspects so I found the book tedious at times, but a Lynley book is a Lynley book! By the way, I have watched the PBS Mystery Inspectory Lynley Series, and did not care for them because the actors chosen to play Lynley and Havers were so unlike what I had pictured them to be I just couldn’t “willingly suspend my disbelief.” The later shows in the series did not follow the plots of any of the books I’ve read ( )

Na de dood van zijn vrouw heeft Thomas Lynley ontslag genomen bij New Scotland Yard. Met niet meer bij zich dan een rugzak trekt hij al een maand te voet door Cornwall, om alleen te zijn met zijn gedachten. Maar terwijl hij op een rotspad langs de kust naar de golven in de diepte staart, ziet hij op een rots beneden hem het lichaam van een jongen liggen. Dood.

Romanzo che può piacere solo agli incalliti fan della George (...come me).
Al solito ben scritto, con un'accurata (anche troppo) analisi dei tanti personaggi che arricchiscono la trama.
Un solo morto e un non-finale che mi ha lasciato perplesso.
Non lo consiglio a chi non ha mai letto nulla della George! ( )

I think this is the first Elizabeth George novel that I didn't finish. Perhaps it was because the previous one was so good and this just didn't measure up. But the characters were not grabbing me and the plot seemed to plod along too slowly. ( )

Yikes. This was bad. I don't even know what else to say. I mean...you have Lynley wanting a sexual relationship or something with a woman who he meets not more than 2 months after his wife was murdered. Also, what was George even thinking with fridging Helen? The murder story-line was interesting, but the resolution was a freaking let-down. I don't even know what else to say here. This book felt like a waste of time.

"Careless in Red" finds Thomas Lynley walking in Cornwall. He has been on his own for 6 weeks at the start of this story trying to outrun memories of his dead wife. When he comes to a cliff he sees a body and finds himself thrust in the middle of a murder investigation. The local investigator calls on Lynley to investigate a woman who is hiding something. Lynley eventually calls up Havers who is sent to Cornwall to help, but to also bring Lynley back to New Scotland Yard.

I got nothing on Lynley. He's like a shadow of his former self and his whatever it was with the vet made zero sense and actually made me despise him.

Havers was great and the only reason why I gave this 1 star.

The local investigator had a whole backstory that I did not care about at all. So did the vet and it made zero sense when we get to her reveal. It was so dumb and I just threw up my hands.

I can't say much about the other people in this story, the lot of them had a lot of issues and there's not really anyone that I ended up liking. At one point I wondered how everyone in this story was so miserable and unhappy. Some of the characters, read as caricatures.

The writing was dry and the flow was awful.

The ending was a letdown. Readers and the police know who did it, but I really wish the book had ended differently. Lynley holds a massive resolution to a murder case that occurred 25 years earlier and it made no sense that he didn't tell anyone about it, or at least to tell what he knew to the person behind this murder. The whole book felt like a rough draft. ( )
