“[A] juicy serial killer whodunit.”
“Delicately textured...achingly compassionate....It’s one of George’s best, and that’s saying something.”
The 13th novel in Elizabeth George’s acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Inspector Linley crime fiction series, With No One as Witness is arguably the most riveting, shocking, and emotionally compelling of the lot. The hunt for a serial killer who has been murdering and mutilating young boys in London has Scotland Yard Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley and his team of investigators racing to stop the slaughter, only to have the investigation nearly derailed by one devastating, truly game changing event. An American author, George has been praised as “a master of the British mystery” by the New York Times, one of only two Yanks whose crime novels have been adapted for the PBS TV series, “Mystery,” and her exceptional police procedurals rank with the best of Ian Rankin, Peter Robinson, and Ruth Rendell.

The police never suspect that a serial killer might be at large until they discover the fourth body—the first white victim—draped across a tomb in a London graveyard. Now, accusations of racism are rampant and Scotland Yard is on the defensive, scrambling to apprehend a maniac while trying to avoid a potential public relations disaster. Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley and his disgraced partner Barbara Havers have been assigned to the investigation, and Winston Nkata has been hastily—though deservedly—promoted and made the station's spokesperson to the media.
But with Lynley distracted by concerns for his pregnant wife, Havers fighting for her professional future, and Nkata confronting a hostile public, no one has begun to imagine the tenacity and ingenuity of the killer they are seeking . . . and no one is prepared for the savage, shocking instant when everything will change forever.About the Author:
