Elizabeth George--Payment in Blood
I enjoyed reading this book. I have enjoyed every Elizabeth George book I have read so far. I started with her first book and I am trying to read them in sequence. The recurring characters all have such interesting lives. I like to read them in order so that I can keep track of what happens to the main characters. This author writes very well. She writes English murder mysteries but she is American. Figure that one out. 'Payment in Blood' was her second book that features Inspector Lynley and Sgt Havers. There were at least two murders which eventually our main characters solved. There was also a lot of heartache & suffering on the part of Inspector Lynley because the love of his life had found some else.
