Book Review: A Suitable Vengeance (Inspector Lynley series #4) by Elizabeth George
Sometimes when I have completed reading a book, I try to read reviews written by others to gauze their reactions, especially when I am ambivalent towards liking the book. And this book A Suitable Vengeance turned out to be one such book. Yes, it was a prequel, so some dissonance with respect to our favorite characters and background was pertinent, still without Sergeant Havers, her special dressing sense and working/practical sensibilities, it seemed there was so much missing (okay okay, she was there but cameo does not amount to much, right?).
The book is all about the central characters (yes yes, except Havers) and a few side ones as well and their linkages and relationships with each others of past and additionally, which revolves around a murder mystery striking so closer to home. The mystery was interesting, but the other parts (characters/relationships) really crazy. But then all that ends well, is well, even if in a whodunnit.
Also, you know, while reading this book, I tried to imagine if closure of a murderer in other books also depend on so much coincidence. I guess, I would need to keep a closer eye when I read the next books in this Inspector Lynley series. What do you think?
Keep watching my blog for more book reviews!
