Elizabeth George "reigns as the queen of the mystery genre." ravesEntertainment Weekly, which named her most recent novel,In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner, on of the 10 best books of 1999. The author who has enthralled millions with masterworks of dazzling novels of literary suspense returns with her most astonishing work yet. "Ms. George proves that the classiest of crime writers are true novelists," proclaimed theNew York Times, and each of her previous ten novels has been an instant international bestseller. Now, with A TRAITOR TO MEMORY, George returns to the themes which have made her a master of the genre she has made distinctly her own--the classic detective story that is also a richly rewarding tapestry of passion, loyalty, and betrayal. She is a writer like no other, and her novels mark a magnificent literary achievement. "To listen is to be, but to play is to live..." So, believes Gideon Davies, 28-year-old musical wunderkind, a virtuoso violinist whose talents are internationally celebrated. When Gideon finds himself center-stage, unable to play, his tortured search for his music--and for the truth behind the appalling event that shaped his life--will lead him to the very heart of love's darkest manifestations.

The best Elizabeth George and the only one I could complete.

I've usually enjoyed reading other Lynley novels by Elizabeth George, but I didn't enjoy this one. I thought that the murders might make sense at the end of the book, but the reasons given just weren't believable. Sorry I wasted so much time on it.

I like this author very much but not this effort--it uses a frustrating, redundant literary device. For me, it flopped.
