10 out of 10

This is Elizabeth George's best to date.

'...The anatomy of a murder, the story of a family in crisis, What Came Before He Shot Her is a pwoerful, emotional novel full of deep psychological inisights, a novel that only the incomparable Elizabeth George could write.' (From the back cover.)

It is really not a mystery as her others are, thoughthe advertising tries to link it in. Actually, all her books are really socially commentary, using a framework of the dectective story.

This is a sad book, yet one that is hard to put down.

I got to the end of this book and thought, There has to be a flaw in this plot, somewhere--which is pretty much the case for any crime or mystery novel--but let's face it, re-reading the book in order to find it is a pretty depressing prospect.

I picked this book up at the last sydney meetup. It was up for grabs on the table but seemed to have no takers. I took it home for a safe re-release elsewhere.

I've heard good things about this one (I've never read anything by Elizabeth George as yet) so when it was orphaned after bookdrinks last night, I thought I'd give it a go. Now, I have no time to read it, so it might just get offered up on the Oz VBB unread. But then again, I might suddenly want to read a good fast-paced crime novel...

UPDATE 8 Aug 2008: I'm releasing this one into the Oz VBB. Flight did let me know that this was not the Elizabeth George to start with, so (one day) I'll track down another one of hers to read.

UPDATE 9 Aug 2008: And chosen by AmberC!

I just couldn't get into this. I usually love Elizabeth George, but I think the wrong time for this book for me.

What a depressing story .....not only because of the content but of the fact it could be based on real people's lives.
