When the Metropolitan Police fail to realise a serial killer is at work, London ignites over the fact that the killer's victims are young black and mixed race boys. Institutionalised racism is claimed by the community's activists and tabloids alike.
Acting Superintendent Thomas Lynley is given the case, and his Scotland Yard task force is soon handling more killings and a looming tragedy.
Elizabeth George brings to the familiar subject of the serial killer a freshness and clarity of vision that provide illuminating insight into the psychological complexity of the tortured criminal mind. She does so within a richly textured, thrillingly suspenseful narrative that defies any reader to predict its outcome. Nor does she neglect our favourite characters, whose private lives provide an engrossing counterpoint to their professional duties.
Grab it and read it.
The narrator is excellent. She adds extra touches like the accents of varying characters in the book. Brings the book to life.
The story did not allow me to lose interest even though I had many breaks between reads.
It is a long story and I think I would have tried it with a whispersync book if I had known better. I am new to this audible thing, but I love it.
Would you consider the audio edition of With No One as Witness to be better than the print version?
I had the print version available when I was listening to the audio edition. When I read, rather than listened I could hear Diana's voice giving expression and intonation to the characters. Her reading of the book enhanced the experience. I enjoyed her beautiful pronunciation of some of the words that were unfamiliar to me.
What was one of the most memorable moments of With No One as Witness?
The characterisation of Kimmo was a great start to the novel. Engagement with this character created interest in the police procedure that followed.
Which scene was your favorite?
It is very difficult to choose one, there were many. So as not to spoil later compelling scenes I would choose the scene where Barbara Havers takes Hadiyyah to the market.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Lynley's responses late in the book.
What made the experience of listening to With No One as Witness the most enjoyable?
I think the story. I have read most of the 'Inspector Lynley' series and really enjoy the books. This book continues the storyline of Havers & Lynley, combining the murder investigation with their personal stories seamlessly. The ending of the book has left me eager for the next chapter.
Great story. Unfortunately the performance was poor. Diana Bishop would have been better off to narrate the story rather than attempt those dreadful accents. Those supposed to be Caribbean were just embarrassing. Worse than those in Cool Runnings and The Mighty Quinn. Really bad and extremely irritating!!!!!
Would you try another book written by Elizabeth George or narrated by Diana Bishop?
Might do iAs long as it not inspector Linley
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Did Diana Bishop do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
She needed to put move life into the story
Did With No One as Witness inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
