    One thought on “A Great Deliverance

    1. Phrynne

      This is a series I have been meaning to start for ages and I am so glad I have got around to it at last! This book is great! It has everything I like in a mystery.1. A really attractive, talented, charismatic main character who knows exactly what he is doing. And so far he does not appear to be an alcoholic or have any other unappealing trait as most MCs in crime books do these days. (although as this book was written in 1988 nearly everyone smokes all the time)2. Due also to the date it was wri [...]

      I initially saw the television adaptation of this book on PBS Mystery!. I was moved by the dark, Yorkshire setting and the budding friendship of Lynley and Havers. It had such a gritty conclusion, that I went to the library the next day and checked out the next book in the series. That was almost 9 years ago! After finishing book six in the series last year, I felt it was time to read the book that started it all. I can't believe I waited so long! Thus far, this my favorite book in the series! F [...]

      UPDATE 2/1/17 I found "A Great Deliverance" as outstanding on second read as I did the first time around. My 5***** rating remains unchanged. George's ability to present an evolving and developing character is outstanding for any genre, but even more so for a mystery story, where character is often far subordinate to plot. This is especially true of the characters who continue in George's series but also for the the main one-off's. We don't ever get it all at once, but in pieces, each one adding [...]

      A 61 yr old farmer lies in his barn, brutally murdered, his head chopped offe head lying a few yards from the body, where it had rolled after being severed. His grossly obese daughter sits beside his headless body, seated on a stool, holding the bloody axe that killed him and says “I did it. I’m not sorry.” Or did she?Two unlikely detectives from New Scotland Yard are paired together to solve the case. Inspector 'Lord Asherton’ Lynley is a wealthy upper class handsome man, while Sergeant [...]

      Mixed feelings on this one. Lynley and Havers are fascinating characters, complex and marvelously well-drawn (except for one somewhat gratuitous Lynley interlude). I love the way Havers is allowed to express her resentment and how her inbred distrust and dislike of nobility is thwarted by Lynley's compassion and decency. There are some interesting secondary characters, as well, my favourite being the little girl, Bridie, and her pet duck, Dougal. However, at times the book is too description-hea [...]

      I finished this book last night and I was filled with mixed emotions. After reading this I thought Is it O.K. to murder someone? Even though I could never do this, I now have a different view on this question. The ending was just full of horror. It was almost too much for me to handle. I really did like the book though.This book starts out with Inspector Lynley of Scotland Yard in a village of Keldale, investigating a murder there with Sergeant Barbara Havers. Sergeant Havers gets demoted from h [...]

      I've been in a book slump for the longest time. Well, I've been in a slump in general, for the longest time. I'd been having "one of those days" for the past couple of weeks, and this book got me out of it. I was apprehensive about starting this book after the disappointment that was J.D. Robb, but this did not disappoint. Elizabeth George is an exceptional writer. She pens what seems, from the onset, a cosy mystery, a la Ms. Marple or the likes, but gradually turns out to be something much dark [...]

    10. Jennifer

      I was surprised to dislike this book intensely. I'd not read (or seen) any Inspector Lynley and I was expecting to enjoy this tale of an aristocrat police detective. It's the first in the series and sometimes the first outing is not the best whilst an author is establishing characters but I am really not sure I can bear to try another unless the author has been given a sound talking-to and promised to reform. It has left my teeth feeling as if the enamel has been stripped off.I can cut the plot [...]

    11. James

      I wavered between strongly disliking this book, actively despising the author and reading it in a compulsive how could this get any worse kind of way. The plot in brief: a lord who for reasons unknown works in scotland yard is paired up with a working class police woman to solve a grisly decapitation in Yorkshire. I understand some suspension of belief is par for the course when you read a crime thriller and that the depth of character plotting is not a universal strength of the genre. But there [...]

    12. Lisa

      Goodness Gracious, I love this series. Elizabeth George is, in my opinion, the best mystery writer alive today. The ending hits you like a slap and yet you're left wondering how in the world you never saw it coming. Of course THAT was what was happening! But Elizabeth George is a master manipulator and character constructor. There are few characters in literature I enjoy more than Barbara Havers and Sir Thomas Lynley. The ins and outs of their relationship over the course of this series is enthr [...]

    13. Jude

      Don't let the public television series distract you - they mostly just took the names and killed off most of the players.For a treat and a journey that only your willingness NOT to read reviews can preserve, begin here at the beginning. The arc of personal story that runs behind the crimes and through the novels is truly wonderful, and her brilliant portrayal of race and class issues builds to the truly startling "With No One As Witness" and the revelatory "What Came Before He Shot Her." George [...]

    14. Larry Bassett

      This is my first Elizabeth George and is part of my search for women authors with feminist protagonists. In this case it will be the second in command protagonist, not, on the face of it, the most- promising start in finding a strong, independent woman. I am defining feminist as someone who supports and works toward equal rights and opportunities for women. I am interested in the development of the relationship between the two main characters. There is a tension and occasional antagonism between [...]

    15. Marie-Jo Fortis

      Mysteries no longer seem mysterious. At least the ones that have fallen into my hands in the past few years. What the hell do you mean? will be the retort of the critical friend. A non-mysterious mystery? And then, a glance will follow with this implication, criticism now tinted with concern: Marie-Jo must have hit her head on a real hard surface. Main be it’s time for brain surgery. Before I am being taken to the hospital, however, let me explain. I believe that what has been placed on the [...]

      4.5 Sterne für den zweiten Band der Lynley Reihe! Weiter gehts mit dem re-read der Inspektor Lynley Reihe :)Der erste Band war ja noch ein bisschen verhalten und viel mit persönlichen Konflikten gespickt - jetzt im zweiten stand der Mordfall schon sehr viel mehr im Vordergrund.Natürlich ist auch Thomas Lynleys Beziehung zu seiner Ex-Verlobten und seinen Freunden immer präsent, aber endlich tritt auch Barbara Havers auf den Plan. Sie wurde im Dienst zurückgestuft, weil sie mit keinem der and [...]

    17. Nikki Nielsen

      As exhausted as I am, Elizabeth George has managed to hold my attention into the wee hours of the morning. That, in itself, says something.I was surprised to learn, after finishing this book, that the author is American. I have read a great deal of British Mysteries, and I have to say she does it well. I learned this about her after reading the book, because I never read the inside cover or back of a book until I have finished. I don't like to start out with pre-conceptions. I like to be surpris [...]

    18. Lobstergirl

      In this, the first Inspector Lynley mystery, Elizabeth George unrolls a particularly hideous plot and typically unappealing supporting cast of characters. Even our main characters, Lynley and Havers, are unappealing; Lynley is a serious slut who apparently will bed down with any redhaired woman and who crippled his best friend in a drunk driving accident, and Havers is shapeless yet also barrel-shaped and has tiny pig eyes. Oh, and Lynley is blond. (In my mind he became antiques expert identical [...]

      3.5/5Da tempo bramavo Elizabeth George (.endo i suoi libri) e fra una pesantezza letteraria e l'altra l'occasione per staccare la spina e tentare la sua via era lì pronta, in uno scaffale perfettamente raggiungibile della mia biblioteca di paese. Prima esperienza, primo libro della serie dell'ispettore Lynley. E meno male che non è l'ultimo, perché io già mi sono prenotata il secondo sperando che non manchi all'appello nello stesso scaffale.A lettura finita devo fare i miei più sentiti comp [...]

    20. Panda Incognito

      Surely a great next step in my exploration of the mystery genre would be to read a book by the great Elizabeth George, right? Nope.This was the most atrocious book I have ever read. The novel started off badly enough, with no central character's journey to follow and a series of disjointed, head-hopping scenes. About halfway through, the story started to pull together, but we'd still take lurching jaunts off into the utterly boring and irrelevant backstory and activities of minor characters who [...]

    21. Amanda Patterson

      Elizabeth George tells a wonderful tale; crafted as carefully as an elaborate quilt. She deserves the accolades she’s received, including the Anthony & Agatha Best First Novel in the USA for A Great Deliverance. I’ve read all of her novels and recommend this for all lovers of crime fiction and good writing. If she weren’t boxed into a genre, her novels would be considered for more than the usual crime prizes.

    22. Toni Osborne

      This is a plot thick book with plenty of fascinating characters. It is a good idea to read this novel first to get a solid background of the characters. If you love rich and complex characters you will be delighted. This novel is beautifully written, has a lot of suspense and is utterly absorbing. The author leaves a message that goes far beyond a murder mystery.

    23. Laurie • The Baking Bookworm

      3.5 STARS - I picked up this mystery because Elizabeth George is one of the authors that had escaped me over the years. Too many authors and not enough time. I knew next to nothing about this series and didn't know what to expect for characters, locale or time frame. What I got was a murder mystery with wonderfully complex, well-drawn, yet flawed main characters in Lynley and Havers. I enjoyed the contrast between aristocratic Lynley paired with chip-on-her-shoulder, working class Havers. They e [...]

    24. Dorothy

      As an avid reader of mystery series, why have I never picked up one of Elizabeth George's Inspector Lynley books? After all, she's one of the most successful mystery writers now on the scene. I've finally remedied my oversight by reading the first book in the series and the writer's first novel, A Great Deliverance. I won't wait so long to peruse the second book in the series, because this was a terrific read.Here are a few of the things that I liked about the book:The setting. Yorkshire, with i [...]

      " The woman stared. She was exactly the type who always reduced him to blithering idiocy. At least six feet tall, dressed in that wonderfully insouciant mismatch of clothing so characteristic of the British upper classes, she was ageless, timeless, ()" (page 1)" She'd swept into the carriage in Doncaster, () and for the remainder of the trip she had alternated between imbibing the railway's foul-smelling and tepid coffee and staring at him with a disapproval that shouted Church of England at eve [...]

    26. Donna

      IntenseI'm late in discovering Elizabeth George - this book out almost 30 years ago.Really great character development, good pace to the book, and increasing intensity that drove me to the pretty awful ending to the story.I will definitely read more in the series.

    27. Jamie Collins

      This was an enjoyable murder mystery, very well written with detailed, rather intense characterizations. The drama was perhaps a little over-the-top, and the Dark Secret behind the murder was a bit obvious.The mystery shared the stage equally with the personal stories of the detectives, the aristocratic Inspector Lynley and the working-class Sergeant Havers. I like this in a series mystery novel, because in the long run I'm more interested in the recurring characters than in the murder-of-the-we [...]

    28. Michele

      When I started my mystery genre binge, I decided to do a little research to find out what British mystery series (I did want to start a series) rated highest amongst critics and readers. Inevitably, Elizabeth George's Inspector Lyndley series ranked amongst the highest. So I started with this novel, the first in the series, and was most assuredly not disappointed. Both Inspector Lyndley and his partner, Barbara Havers, are wonderfully complex characters, each with their own baggage and their own [...]

    29. Suzy

      I was surprised by how much I disliked this book. I remember really liking the Masterpiece Mystery television program, not wanting to miss an episode!In the book, the characters, major and minor, seemed over-exaggerated, the crime seemed obvious to this reader, but it took Lynley and Havers 400+ pages to figure it out - it seemed to go on and on! I see that this is the slimmest volume of the 19 Inspector Lynley books. The page count seems to jump from the 400s to over 700 at about book 7, with b [...]

    30. Serena.. Sery-ously?

      Era stato proprio un gran maleducato. Le aveva starnutito fragorosamente in faccia, inondandola di schizzi, dopo aver resistito allo stimolo per almeno tre quarti d'ora.Solo la George può iniziare così un romanzo e non temere di perdere audience Mitica!!Per chi ama il genere thriller (ma anche per chi vorrebbe approciarvisi, per chi ha curiosità, per chi vuol cambiare aria) questo libro è davvero imperdibile. La George scrive divinamente e vi catturerà! Per me era una rilettura, ma l'ho ini [...]
