Ers by writing the story from different perspectives But reading the next instalment in the series is No small feat because all of her books are massive bricks The Punishment She Deserves is almost 700 pages long and I enjoyed every page The death occurs in a small town in wales and havers and her superiors are sent and Havers and her superiors are sent look at whether the local police properly ruled it a suicide The story delves into a roup of local young people an underfunded police force and different forms of obsessive parenting There S NO POINT GETTING INTO A DEEP DESCRIPTION OF no point Blackmailed Into the Italians Bed getting into a deep description of story but I suspect fans of this series would enjoy it as much as I didGetting into this series is a deep commitment I took the plunge uite a few years ago and caught up by reading each book obsessively one after the other over a few months This may not be for everyone but I m happy I did and am always happy to read the next one Heavenly days Elizabeth George is amazing This book looked daunting when Iot it as it is 690 pages I wanted to feel that she could have told the story in half that but of course she couldn t We needed every bit of it to solve the crimes examine all the players and come to a typical LynleyHavers conclusion This book is tremendous I was pleasantly surprised to find that Elizabeth George brought Inspector Thomas Lynley the 8th Earl of Asherton back full force in this novel It had seemed like she had been pushing Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers into the main character role If this had continued in this book I was ready to Girls Night Out give up on this seriesInspector Lynley and Detective Sergeant Havers are sent to discover if a suicide was really a few suicide or a murder Elizabeth George has improved the character of Barbara Havers so that she is a lot likable She and Lynley make a formidable team Like a mediocre muffin dotted with delicious chocolate chips were Lynley and Havers in this nearly 700 page tome I used it for upper arm workouts during breaks from reading There is an interminable uantity of uninteresting storyline here involving binge drinking college students screwing and blowjobbing college students and an Anglo Indian family falling apart The Isabelle Ardery thread was surprisingly welcome We hate her because she is a termagant and has a sexual past with Lynley and our hatred is nudged along here by her uncontrollable drunkenness Every time she thinks about reaching for the airline vodka bottle pulls her hand away and then reaches for it again and downs it readers will cheer We won t be happy until she is finally destroyedSomething interesting happens to Lynley in that George makes his aristocraticness the cause of hisood character and virtues He is so well bred that it has become impossible for him to do wrong The book does in fact end with a scene in which Lynley bullies Havers but this is portrayed as doing her a favor Who is the SheWho is the she in Elizabeth George s title There are many possibilities First the irrepressible insubordinate ill kempt Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers who is my favorite character in the whole series for her colorful way of saying off color things brilliant instincts and believable background Barbara has managed to piss off many of her superiors at Scotland Yard and at the beginning of the book she is sent off to Shropshire on an investigation with Detective Chief Superintendent Isabelle Ardery her arch nemesis The assignment has been designed as an opportunity for her to screw up and be appropriately punished by exile to the far northOr the she could be Isabelle Ardery herself whom we have come to dislike in the previous novel A Banuet of Conseuences for the way she lords it over Barbara s immediate boss Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley whom she outranks only because she now occupies the administrative position that he refused But very early in this new novel Ardery reveals herself to have a problem with alcohol and before long she is behaving worse than ever I might have said that some of her scenes are bit "too melodramatic to be believable but then alcoholics can indeed behave in "melodramatic to be believable but then alcoholics can indeed behave in abnormal waysOne of the many ways in which Isabelle has failed is as a mother Her divorced husband is about to move with their two sons to New Zealand a decision she is fighting tooth and nail But there are at least two other mothers in the book who by having too littl.
