Pressestimmen

George is one of the best crime novelists around - there's a richness and psychological depth to her work which lifts it well above genre fluff. Time Out Her account of surfers' lives, with their terrifying techniques and almost religious passion is worth reading. Jessica Mann, Literary Review

Synopsis

It is barely three months since the murder of his wife and Thomas Lynley takes to the South-West Coast Path in Cornwall, determined to walk its length in an attempt to distract himself from his loss. On the forty-third day of this walk, he sees a cliff climber fall to his death, apparently witnessed by a surfer in a nearby cove. Shortly afterwards, Lynley encounters a young woman from Bristol whose personal history is a blank before her thirteenth year. These events propel him into a case that brings Barbara Havers from London and thrusts both detectives into a world where revenge is only one of the motives they must sift through to identify a killer. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Careless in Red will surprise most fans of the Thomas Lynley/Barbara Havers novels. Elizabeth George doesn't return to her roots, but attempts a more literary novel that primarily explores how fragile husbands and children are without wives and mothers to love and nurture them. Those who just want a good mystery will wonder why all the extra characters and plots are in place until they realize that the mystery is secondary to telling stories that build the major theme.

As the book opens, Lynley is a wreck following the murder of his wife and unborn child. He's been trekking along the coast without thought to comfort and safety, becoming little more than a homeless man. That mind-numbed state is disturbed when he spots a dead body and is pulled into the investigation. His police instincts are alerted when a woman he meets begins lying and he wants to find out why.

The book is rich in character development, relying on many different interacting narrators. Ms. George uses this device to explore many family mysteries, which may or may not be related to the crime mystery. If you find it fascinating to think about all the ways that families can become dysfunctional, this book is for you.

Within all these stories, there is a deep tragedy . . . the kind the ancient Greeks would have appreciated. Lynley senses that something like that might be looming behind the current events and helps to bring it to light.

I would rate this book higher, but the breakdown of Lynley and his fairly quick recovery didn't ring true to me. I can't exactly tell you why, but it set a false note that undermined the rest of the story for me. I also found the endings (which don't let anyone hint about to you) to be unsatisfying compared to the scale of the foundation for the novel.

I did find the book to be compelling. I stayed up late on two nights to finish.

Thank God, a new Inspector Lynley novel. I think, E. George did a great job with this new book because after the last one (With no one as witness) it couldn't have been easy to start this new novel. Careless in Red is about the surfer community in casvelyn (cornwall) where a grief filled Lynley on his walk along the coastal path discovers a body of a cliff climber and thereby gets drawn into the police investigation by DI Hannaford. The book contains lots of typical E. George stuff, we see the developement of characters close to the murdered climber and of course we get our fare share of Thomas Lynley this time. And thats what he is, just Thomas Lynley trying to recover from the unexpected death of his wife and son in the last book. Through the story he has his own war with his demons to fight to get to a decision how to go on with his life. There is even a reunion with Barbara Havers but she is not the most featured person in this book, Barbara Havers like always nonetheless.
I loved this book it tells a story about long forgotten animosities, revenge and missed chances. It's perfect to set the characters on a new path following With no one as witness and I am already looking forward to what is going to happen next!

Ich werde wohl kein Buch von Elisabeth George mehr lesen. Aber zumindest habe ich dies bis zum Ende durchgehalten (im Gegensatz zu 'What came before he shot her'), weil ich neugierig war, ob denn die vielen Handlungsstränge irgendwie zusammenfinden. Das Buch ist einfach überfrachtet mit zu vielen Personen mit verkorksten Lebensläufen in gestörten Familienverhältnissen. Ich habe mir bald keine Mühe mehr gegeben, sie richtig zuzuordnen und die spezifischen Probleme zu verfolgen. Auf manche hätte man auch ohne Weiteres verzichten können, sie machen die Handlung nur noch unübersichtlicher. Wer es gründlich angehen will, sollte sich eine Liste mit den jeweiligen Familienmitgliedern und Mitarbeitern ins Buch legen. Und spaßeshalber auch eine Strichliste mit handelnden Personen. Ich schätze, es sind ca. 50.
