A kind and well-loved woman was brutally and inexplicably murdered. The pregnant wife of a respected police inspector, her death has left Scotland Yard shocked and searching for answers. Perhaps most horrifying of all, the trigger of the weapon that killed her was apparently pulled by a stranger . . . a twelve-year-old boy.
The anatomy of a murder, the story of a family in crisis, What Came Before He Shot Her is a powerful, emotional novel full of deep psychological insights, a novel that only the incomparable Elizabeth George could write.

Their father is gunned down. Their mother is institutionalized. Their grandmother dumps them with their aunt. Elizabeth George's prequel to WITH NO ONE AS WITNESS relates the turbulent lives of the Campbell children up to the climax of the earlier book: the murder of Inspector Lynley's wife, Helen. Narrator Charles Keating is every bit as believable as the harried middle-aged aunt, the grandmother heading to Jamaica, and the ferociously angry 15-year-old Ness as he is the overburdened 12-year-old Joel and 8-year-old Toby, a child with developmental problems. Audio is the smart choice for this grim story. On the page, British street slang might prove daunting, but Keating slips in and out of the argot of black London with dexterity.
