This book is listed as a mystery but it i. .The sixth of the Inspector Lynley novels. This one was particularly interesting to me since it takes place in the part of England that my husband's ancestors came from, Lancashire. Inspector Lynley is less central to the story than in the Masterpiece Theater adaptations of George's books. Also lots more sex including a rape scene that was more graphic than needed.

I've read a lot if Elizabeth George's novels but then realized recently that I had never read her first one. As I began to read, I sensed a pattern to her writing. After the first one I went on the the second one then the third and so forth. I'm now midway through number 7 and although I'd read it previously the story took on a whole new view of her characters. These are all stand alone novels but reading them in sequential order gives them a whole new depth. Ms George assumes her readers have a certain degree of knowledge of the English language. I find myself having to look up some of her words to check out their meaning, particularly the more English words as opposed to American usage. In the beginning of her stories you begin to wonder where she's going with all her plots and subplots but slowly it starts to all come together until the end, which beings you to a very ah-ha moment. Her stories aren't your typical English murder mystery that can be skimmed quickly but rather require a great deal of thought. I plan on reading all her novels again but in the order she write them. You'll get a whole new understanding of her characters personalities.

I enjoyed the earlier books in the series but got seriously annoyed by this one.

1. The problems in the relationships of the 'regular' characters are unbearably tiresome. I started tiring of the angst in 'For the Sake of Elena' and it only keeps getting worse. I was first drawn to this series because i like a good mystery novel; if i wanted to watch a soap opera where the characters can never be happy because some new problem always comes up - i would have watched a soap opera.

2. I can understand wanting your own child and being concerned about one's ability to love an adopted child to the same degree. What i don't understand is how Deborah can be so thick sculled that other people can love their non-biological children with all their hearts. The 'revelation' she had about this at the end of the book makes her seem to have an emotional IQ of a rock.

3. Why does the rapist get NO punishment at all for his crime???!!!

4. Why the heck did Deborah remove anything from the grave??? I gasped when she took an item from a grave of a person she did not know as a 'talisman'.

5. Why are Helen and Deborah always so childish and petulant? It's hard to imagine less sympathetic female characters when one integrates across the whole series.

6. Way too many gratuitous sex scenes. If i wanted a romance novel, I'd buy a romance novel. I do not buy a murder mystery for an endless series of sex scenes.

Overall, I think I'm done with this series. i can't bear any more whining from the female heroines and I'm tired of reading about rape, incest, and/or molestation in every damn book.

I found Elizabeth George recently and really enjoyed the first couple of books. But in this one, while the story was clever enough, I grew very tired of the long winded psychological sessions between Helen and Lynley, and between Deborah and St. James , and even, in her brief appearance, between Havers and her mother. Who cares at this point? While the whole book appears to be an attempt at a life lesson for Deborah, the heaviness and unpleasant feelings between the two couples goes on and on, while the story drags behind. I don't enjoy books where I end up glossing over paragraphs.

The author not only develops plot, but characters as well, especially the main characters in her Linley series. After reading the books in order up to now, the five main characters begin to feel like colleagues and the descriptions are of people and places are well written and one can easily draw the mental image. Plus the ending is always a bit of a surprise! All George's books are written with depth and I've learned quite a few new vocabulary words - no screenplay here! I'm going to be sad when I get to the end of the series, as I really enjoy the main characters ( Detective Inspector Linley, Lady Helen, Deb, St. James and Sgt. Barbara Havers).

"Missing Joseph" had all the great twists and turns of any fine mystery novel. I'm reading the books in order and I have to say I enjoyed this plot the most so far (save missing Havers who played, but a small part). What left me scratching my head was the reference to Helen's two sisters, a Countess and a Rancher. It was as if sister Penelope, who played a huge role in the previous novel "For the Sake of Elena" never existed. These kinds of discrepancies always throw me off kilter and take something away from the story. Equally, the drama that ensues in every novel in which Helen or Deborah are involved, let's just say I have to take that with a grain of salt. They're not the kind of women I would be friends with as they exhaust me.

Well written............very somber- Usually Helen's sweet nature and the love shared by St. James and Deborah balances the darkness and pathos created by the crime being solved. Not the case in this novel- all is dark and depressing. I had to finish it but hurried through to get to the end so I could start a different book. I had really enjoyed the characters created by Elizabeth George and may read a couple more to see if they return to their previous selves.......Right now I'm headed back to the Amazon book store to find something with a glimmer of hope or humor in it's pages.

This is the 6th book in a series. I highly recommend reading them in order. The mystery had me thinking and pondering until the end. Some flawed but riveting small town characters were interspersed throughout the story. Also, the personal lives of 4 of the characters who have cropped up in almost every book so far, slowly but surely keep developing. It's a nice, slow burn that makes you want to keep moving on with the series.
Again a wonderful, complex psychological thriller. The Linley books are a world in themselves, from book till book we get to follow the lives of Linley, St James, Helen and Deborah, attaching personages, and the impact life has on them through the tortuous crimes that they come to discover/solve. A whole world with connections that the talented EG makes alive. Not the list the power of love in all the terrible but so human meanders that it leads to.
