    Inhaltsangabe

    After writing 16 Inspector Lynley novels, New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth George has millions of fans waiting for the next one. As USA Today put it, "It's tough to resist George's storytelling, once hooked." With Believing the Lie, she's poised to hook countless more.

    Inspector Thomas Lynley is mystified when he's sent undercover to investigate the death of Ian Cresswell at the request of the man's uncle, the wealthy and influential Bernard Fairclough. The death has been ruled an accidental drowning, and nothing on the surface indicates otherwise. But when Lynley enlists the help of his friends Simon and Deborah St. James, the trio's digging soon reveals that the Fairclough clan is awash in secrets, lies, and motives.

    Deborah's investigation of the prime suspect - Bernard's prodigal son Nicholas, a recovering drug addict - leads her to Nicholas's wife, a woman with whom she feels a kinship, a woman as fiercely protective as she is beautiful. Lynley and Simon delve for information from the rest of the family, including the victim's bitter ex-wife and the man he left her for, and Bernard himself. As the investigation escalates, the Fairclough family's veneer cracks, with deception and self-delusion threatening to destroy everyone from the Fairclough patriarch to Tim, the troubled son Ian left behind.

    Crack another case with Inspector Lynley.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "A multiplicity of subplots and a richness of physical detail.... The terrain and the weather are objective correlatives to the characters' stormy patches. Meanwhile, the story strands are untied and retied in satisfying and often moving ways." (The Wall Street Journal)

    "Elizabeth George is a superstar of the crime-fiction world, British Inspector Division. Deservedly so: Her tales always provide nuanced character studies and insights into social issues along with their intricate mysteries." (The Seattle Times)

    "Devilishly complicated." (Entertainment Weekly)

    Ruhiger Krimi für Geduldige

    Wie meist bei Elizabeth George wird ein Netz von Personen und Konflikten gesponnen und bis alle Fäden gespannt sind, müssen sich die Zuhöhrer in Geduld fassen. Wer sich auf diese Reise in den Lake District und in die Tiefen der Familienbande einlässt, wird mit einer entspannenden und anregenden Landpartie belohnt. Interessante Interpretation von Davina Porter, auch für Nicht-Muttersprachler hervorragend zu verstehen.

    A very satisfying listen as usual.

    This was very well-read. Enjoyed every minute!
    Can't wait to hear the next Insoector Lynley novel.
