9780062087591: With No One as Witness

When the Metropolitan Police fail to realise a serial killer is at work, London ignites over the fact that the killer's victims are young black and mixed race boys. Institutionalised racism is claimed by the community's activists and tabloids alike. Acting Superintendent Thomas Lynley is given the case, and his Scotland Yard task force is soon handling more killings and a looming tragedy.

Elizabeth George brings to the familiar subject of the serial killer a freshness and clarity of vision that provide illuminating insight into the psychological complexity of the tortured criminal mind. She does so within a richly textured, thrillingly suspenseful narrative that defies any reader to predict its outcome. Nor does she neglect our favourite characters, whose private lives provide an engrossing counterpoint to their professional duties.

Review:

George weaves her usual magic, embroiling her Scotland Yard characters in tangles both personal and professional ( Time Out)

Complex, convincing and completely absorbing. ( Woman's Day (Australia))

An outstanding and explosive addition to a popular series. ( Publishers Weekly)

Enough twists and shocks . . . to startle even the most jaded reader ( Wall Street Journal)

George explores her characters' dreams and fears with a penetrating grace that makes reading her books a joy ( Washington Post Book World)

This is a riveting instalment in a superb series ( Booklist)

George is a master ( Chicago Tribune)

From the Publisher:

Elizabeth George needs no introduction, and this brilliant Inspector Lynley mystery read by Nathaniel Parker (who plays Lynley in the television series) will leave you in no doubt as to why.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 190 x 106 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The police never suspected a serial killer was at large until they found the third murdered boy, the first white victim, his body draped over a tomb in a London graveyard. Suddenly a series of crimes and a potential public relations disaster have Scotland Yard on the defensive, scrambling to apprehend a maniac while avoiding accusations of racism. Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley, distracted by concerns for his pregnant wife, has been assigned to the investigation, along with his disgraced partner, Barbara Havers, who s fighting for her professional future. Winston Nkata, deservedly, if hastily, promoted to detective sergeant, is the black face who will speak to the media. But none of them can imagine the tenacity and ingenuity of the killer they seek . . . and no one is prepared for the savage, shocking instant when everything will change forever.
