Massive Mystery

Finished May 31
Careless in Red by Elizabeth George
Over six hundred pages of mystery in this, the newest of George's Lynley and Havers series. When we last saw Lynley he had just lost his wife and had quit the force. Now he is walking the coastal paths of Cornwall, trying to find his way. When he comes across a body, he finds that his reflexes kick in and he finds a way to report it. As he stays in the locale for the investigation, he finds himself drawn into the life of a vet who has a holiday cottage there, as well as into the investigation despite himself.
This story involves surfing, Cornwall style; cliff climbing; Cornish pasties (of course!) and village life. As usual the story involves the past as well as the present, and human emotions and failings.
Well-written, with a good plot and lots of interesting characters.
