Toward the end of the book, when the embedded reporter is doing his profile on Lynley, he makes a reference to Simon St. James about what they will find out about him in Yorkshire, about his brother-in-law's murder. It's just before the profile on Lynley is published in the paper.

I must have missed the reference to Lynley's brother-in-law being murdered. Do you remember where in the book this reference was made?

I just finished reading "With No one as witness". In this book, there is reference to Lynley's brother in law having been murdered in Yorkshire. Now I had read all the previous novels but never came across that before. Did I miss something? Or has this been added in for future development?

There were two different actresses playing the same character, namely Helen Lynley. Only one Helen Lynley. I wish they didn't do that, but if one actress quits, what can they do.

I want to know if the Helen character is the same throughout the show. They did change the actress playing Helen.
The one that died is another Helen, so my question is, "is it the same Helen?" or is this Helen, his second lady with the same name?

I did read What Happened Before He Shot Her. It took awhile before I realized that this wasn't one of those that followed one set of characters and switched to another. She does develope characters very well. Definately was different.

No one seems to have read What Happened Before He Shot Her. This refers to Helen being shot, of course.
Interesting story and so unlike the other Havers/Lynley books. Has anyone else read it? It upset me greatly, the tragedy of it.

In an interview with Elizabeth George, I believe she stated that she was going to promote a previous DI to Weberly's position. She stated that she was going to bring in a character that was introduced in an earlier book. She described the character as a woman and 'fast burner'. I can only imagine that Havers is going to catch a lot of flack. Would have said a little stronger. I translate that to mean DI Emma Tate? that she took a shot at and got busted for it. Since I don't get out much, I may have missed this book already. I don't hold out a lot of hope for Havers/Lynley match. Their backgrounds are too different. He rode around with her for 4 or 5 hours and didn't tell her he had decided to pull the life support from Helen...

Does anyone know when we can expect a new book by Ms. George? There used to be a Forum on the Elizabeth George website, but that seems to be gone; so I have no source for announcements, rumors, etc. I'm so looking forward to the return of Lynley & Havers!
