Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:To this day, the low, thin wail of an infant can be heard in Keldale's lush green valleys. Three hundred years ago, as legend goes, the frightened Yorkshire villagers smothered a crying babe in Keldale Abbey, where they'd hidden to escape the ravages of Cromwell's raiders.

Now into Keldale's pastoral web of old houses and older secrets comes Scotland Yard Inspector Thomas Lynley, the eighth earl of Asherton. Along with the redoubtable Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, Lynley has been sent to solve a savage murder that has stunned the peaceful countryside. For fat, unlovely Roberta Teys has been found in her best dress, an axe in her lap, seated in the old stone barn beside her father's headless corpse. Her first and last words were "I did it. And I'm not sorry."

Yet as Lynley and Havers wind their way through Keldale's dark labyrinth of secret scandals and appalling crimes, they uncover a shattering series of revelations that will reverberate through this tranquil English valleyand in their own lives as well.

This was a great read while travelling. Good plot, interesting characters. I'll be reading more of this series. ( )

E liberaci dal padre appartiene a quei libri dei quali ho sempre sentito parlar bene e che prima o poi mi ripromettevo di affrontare (salvo poi pentirmi di non averlo fatto prima).

Elizabeth George ha creato due protagonisti capaci di attrarre l'attenzione del lettore come pochi, sebbene per motivi diversi. L'ispettore Lynley è un gentiluomo pieno di grazia e fascino, ma l'inferno gli scorre nelle vene. Parte del suo tormento viene rivelato in E liberaci dal padre, ma ho l'impressione che l'autrice abbia appena scalfito la superficie. Vedremo.

La sergente Havers, invece, è una tipa difficilmente gestibile che ce l'ha con il mondo intero. Sembra un mastino rabbioso, ma in realtà è solo alla ricerca di qualcuno che la tratti bene e riconosca la brava sergente che si cela dietro al virago. Anche lei ha alle spalle un passato ingombrante e un presente scalcagnato, ma non è brava come Lynley a mantenere le apparenze.

Immaginate un po' due tipi così agli antipodi a indagare su un omicidio piuttosto efferato nelle campagne dello Yorkshire. Aggiungeteci che entrambi saranno costretti a fronteggiare i loro demoni. Come ciliegina sulla torta, cito la straordinaria capacità di Elizabeth George di caratterizzare i suoi personaggi mostrandoceli all'opera, senza sommergerci di dettagli fin da subito. E, infatti, mi ha messo una gran curiosità addosso, mannaggia a lei!

Il giallo, poi, è sviluppato in maniera superba. Anche qui, ogni personaggio coinvolto ha la sua ben precisa psicologia e il finale mi ha davvero toccato il cuore (oltre a ricordarmi uno dei tanti motivi per i quali sono agnostica, ma va be'...). ( )

I don't normally like mysteries (since a lot of them seem to be written at a fourth grade level for some reason,) but this one was good. I will definitely read more by her! ( )

I like mysteries, they're my go-to easy reading. And I liked the BBC series based on these books. But George's character writing for women, particularly, makes me so angry that it ruins the story. I read these many years ago, but I still remember one or two scenes that were intolerable. ( )
