Book Review: Well-Schooled in Murder (Inspector Lynley series #3) by Elizabeth George
Elizabeth George brings us another gruesome murder mystery but this time from a school campus making us question whether kids can be so evil. The description of murder victim, a school boy found nude in a well secluded church with tortuous marks on his body hits you and makes you scared of what this world has come to.
By the way, have you read the first two books by Elizabeth George – A Great Deliverance and Payment in Blood? You are up for a thrilling ride because this book is much much better than those two. Well thought of and put together is the main story-line and the perfect closure. Even the back story between detectives better. “As Lynley watched her, he thought how ironic it was that he had come to depend upon having Havers as his partner. Initially he had believed that no one could possibly be less likely to suit him. She was prickly, argumentative, easily given to anger, and bitterly aware of the enormous gap that existed between them, an impassable chasm created by birth, by class, by money, by experience“. I loved this book for everything (and I guess I have become immune to reading anything now).
