Something to Hide Elizabeth George read online review & book description:

Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley are back in the next Lynley novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George.

When a police detective is taken off life support after falling into a coma, only an autopsy reveals the murderous act that precipitated her death. She'd been working on a special task force within North London's Nigerian community, and Acting Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley is assigned to the case, which has far-reaching cultural associations that have nothing to do with life as he knows it. In his pursuit of a killer determined to remain hidden, he's assisted by Detective Sergeants Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata. They must sort through the lies and the secret lives of people whose superficial cooperation masks the damage they do to one another.

    What a debacle! I’m wondering if Elizabeth George used a ghost writer because everything about the writing is sub-par and gratuitous. The story drags on and on with many repetitions of descriptions and blatant discrepancies. It was hard to keep the TOO many characters straight, the switching scenes and timelines were exasperating, plus the constant, trite preaching about Black vs White animosity drove me to distraction. The murderer was utterly lame, absurd, and beyond all belief. The author also turned Tommy into a needy, whiney, sap of a wimp, and Barbara into a slovenly, chain smoking caricature and not in a charming way. I love Havers, in this book I wanted to hand her napkins and drag her to a laundromat! The book was a tedious and disappointing waste of money. I gave it two stars only because of the endearing portrayal of Tani. And YES, omg, yes, we get that FGM is an atrocity. And as for clingy Pete and slimy Mark…if I’d rolled my eyes many more times they’d have popped out of my head. Why were they in the book at all? Stupid! Elizabeth George lets us down big time. Bring back the quality writing of former books. A definite no-go!

    Very disappointing. A sacrifice of character and plot for global warming and white privilege shaming.

    As usual, this is another outstanding book by a wonderful author. Just beautiful writing. This book brings FGM to our attention and helps us understand the horrors of this practice. It is uplifting to read the stories with such morally centered characters with integrity and fortitude. Really love all the detectives and their methods of kindness, intuition, strength, and fairness.
