Critical Praise

“George explores her characters' dreams and fears with a penetrating grace that makes reading her books a joy.” - Washington Post Book World

“George has once again delivered a thick, knotty, densely plotted mystery. As always, it isn’t a book to tear through in an hour, but one to read slowly, over many sittings, and savor.” - Entertainment Weekly

“Dark, unrelenting, and powerful.” - Kirkus Reviews

“A rich, unsettling work.” - Richmond Times Dispatch 

“A spellbinding tale of mystery and murder.” - Oklahoman 

“This is the kind of mystery that Elizabeth George does best….Ms. George has done a brilliant job…and this is probably her best mystery in years.” - Washington Times

“Elizabeth George writes exceptional mysteries, with intelligent, complex plots and well-developed characters....Her pace is skillful.” - Daily American (PA) 

“A hauntingly memorable experience.” - New York Journal of Books

“Richly rewarding…offers an intricate plot that will satisfy even jaded fans of psychological suspense.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“George’s dense plotting style and complex characterization are on full display as Lynley and Havers, working separately, try to uncover the truth.” - Romantic Times

“[George’s] Inspector Lynley novels are very substantial psychological thrillers, big, deeply intelligent, rich in characterization...and atmospheric as a walk on the moors with a faithful bloodhound.” - Sullivan County Democrat (NY)

This Body of Death is wonderful.” - San Francisco Chronicle
