Payment in Blood

Be prepared to be hooked!
This is only the second Elizabeth George novel I have read, but I plan
to read them all as soon as I can. She has a gift for making even the most
minor characters appear multi-dimensional and interesting. You never feel
that a character exists solely as a plot device. I found myself caring
about every character, even the killer! Havers, Lynley, Clyde and St. James
are worthy returning characters. Their relationships are complex and undoubtedly
have a rich history and a promising future. I can't wait to see what develops
between all of them in the next book. Payment in Blood will keep you engrossed
(and guessing) until the very end.

A good read for a rainy night!
The characters are charming (or quirky) and the plot as twisted as
a hangman's noose. Her books are fun and this one is no exception. I curled
up in front of a fire in early spring and read it at one sitting!
