Home Elizabeth George What Came Before He Shot He. She was going native, her neighbours called it. George Gilbert had left London first, escorted to Heathrow by immigration officials keeping the current prime minister’s promise to do something about the problem of visitors overs. They came for him in a private car and glanced at their watches while he bade Glory a farewell thoroughly lubricated by Red Stripe, which he’d begun to drink in anticipation of the return to his roots. They said, Come along, Mr. Gilbert, and took him by the arms

It is inappropriate to include this as an Inspector Lynley novel; since the regular characters really don't appear; and in my opinion, the greatest strength of this series is the finely crafted characters. That said, I was halfway through before I figured out it was at best, tangentially related. I found it overall very dark, with few redeeming characters. I felt rather swindled, actually, believing it somehow furthered the stories of Lynley, Havers, Nkata, St. James, etc... I have been trying to read the books in order, and considering that Ms. George does tend to go on and on and on, my will to finish out the series is waning. This book was a real buzz kill.

Wow. Absolutely heart-wrenching! I am a huge fan of Ms. George and love every, single novel she has written. Some how, I've put off reading this one, but I'm so thrilled I did. Like all of her novels, this one will stay with the reader for a very long time. I've no idea how she does it, but her novels always take a little space in my heart and a large place in my mind. I absolutely love her writing! Any author who can leave such an indelible mark will always keep me coming back for more!

I was not happy to have been thinking I was getting a mystery in the Lynley series and instead inside the cover is a character evolution leading to a murder in the previous book. It was way too long as well - usually I don't mind if its a good book, but this really dragged on. If you like to read about how poverty and broken homes can lead to very troubled kids you might like this, but if you really just want a good mystery, this will not bring happiness.

Spoiler Alert: This review reveals some dramatic plot developments at the conclusion of "With No One as Witness."

I would give this novel more than five stars if I could. Ms. George has surpassed even her previous body of work in presenting the tragic life story of the child who was present when Helen Lynley was shot and who is accused of her murder. Emotionally, we travel from rage at Helen's killer in the previous novel to heartbreak at the inevitable chain of circumstances that led to this compassionate and gifted child's involvement in her murder. We also travel across London from the privileged environs of Inspector Lynley and his friends and family to the impoverished underbelly of the city. Ms. George has remarkably captured the language, landscape, obstacles, attitudes, emotions, as well as the (sometimes) underlying humanity, of this troubled and dangerous locale. It is a gripping story, but, far more, a masterpiece of writing. While it can be viewed as another chapter in the Inspector Lynley series, it stands totally alone as a first-rate novel in its own right.

I wanted to give this book no stars. After suffering through 10 chapters of sex, violence, child abuse and filthy language, I started jumping from chapter to chapter & found more of the same in all 28. No Lynley at all and only a brief glimpse of Havers & Nkata. What a disappointing book from an author I have usually enjoyed. Forget it!

Very disturbing, this book follows up on the previous novel, "With No One as Witness," which was a real shocker, too. I found I could not get the denouement off my mind. The characters are drawn from today's headlines and storylines, repulsive yet compelling. I totally cared about these characters, despite knowing the ending would be. Miss George's novels are well-written, with terrific characterization and depth. I couldn't put the book down.

On hearing that I like murder mysteries; someone recommended Elizabeth George. I read the first half of a book about the murder of a deaf university student but had to return it to the library when I moved house. So, basically, I haven't read any of her books. I picked this one off the shelf at random.

It is not a murder mystery but I enjoyed it as a look into the lives of people with lives completely different to my own. I really got a picture of how trapped they were by their own limitations (Aunt Kendra's refusal to have one of the boys evaluated for disabilities was completely frustrating to me because it would only help him) as well as their environment (gangs in their neighbourhood). A social worker recommended an enriching activity for one of the kids but it was across town and the kid couldn't go because it was his responsibility to pick up the younger boy from school and no-one else would do it.
I found I was annoyed at all the characters because they were just getting themselves further and further into trouble and were not opening up to the social workers who might be able to help them. I could see how their actions got them deeper and deeper into trouble but there were a few things that happened to them just as things were starting to look up that were not their fault.
I was really hoping that Joel would just spill the entire story to the cops at the end and explain how it all came about. But I guess the ending is fitting with the rest of the book.
I am reading another of her books now but it is going into the detective's personal lives. I don't care about their lives, I just want the mystery! I have read a little dialogue between Lynley and his girlfriend/wife and I can't say I'm sorry that she was shot in the first book I read. She was a bit annoying. Sorry to digress there. I enjoyed this book but was frustrated with the characters the entire way- I guess feeling emotions as you read shows it was a good book.
