This book is an excellent read, As a long timed George fan I enjoyed the move away from the expected characters and places. Her insights into differences as well as the similarities in American experience and philosophy versus the English versions are fascinating to me..George's assay of the complexity and depth, {or lack thereof}, of interpersonal relationships is something psychology students/practitioners should all integrate into their understanding.The historical information is vivid. And the present's emotional events unforgettable, How refreshing this multiplicity of characters and juxtapositions of countries has been. The pace of this book left me time to muse over my own experiences and absorb other perspectives of events of my own Life, which have included an array of disabilities. I did not feel rushed to get to the end but had time to savour each remarkable notion and scene. The art history lesson, sans all of the facts, was a little cherry on top of this multilayered novel! Lastly, George's tender treatment of animals and the horror of all abuse, whether human or creature, speaks directly to my heart. From the icy waters of a morning swim, through the devastation of a little girls seashell innocence, history is blown open, thrown open by old wounds and by truth. The consequential dark windfilled circumambulation of a cemetery of young Nazis, and the final halting growth and redemption of individual progress proves that Elizabeth George continues to be the master of the psychological mystery!

I don't know why this is called an Inspector Lynley novel, he's only on about one page in the book, the remainder is about Deborah and Simon St. James. I found this book to be pretty boring and I don't care for the character Deborah St. James. To me she's an unpleasant brat. Why Lynley used to be in love with her and why Simon is so madly in love with her is beyond me. Had I known that Lynley and Havers weren't in this one, I would have skipped it.

I don't like Deborah St. James. She's childish, bratty, and self-involved. I've had more than enough of her eternal angst. Unfortunately, Simon and she are the protagonists in this one. I didn't care much for her friend China either or China's brother. They just weren't interesting. Plot was Ok. The setting and some other characters were interesting. Not as good a book as many of the others in the series. More Lynley, Havers, and anyone other than Deborah.

"A Place of Hiding" is a book about relationships: mother-daughter (mostly missing), mother-son (mostly antagonistic), father-son (inept to problematic), father-daughter (challenging), sibling (mostly dysfunctional but with an eerie loyalty in some cases), friendship (surprising, often revengeful), lover-lusty (older and younger, mind-bending), and husband-wife (not only the St. Jameses but...point taken, right?). In fact, Elizabeth George has done a masterful job of linking all these relationships to the St. James' central relationship. Every single relationship, from parental to sibling to friendship is played out in characters peripheral to the St. Jameses. The reader could almost chart these inexorable links to Deborah and Simon's marriage. Deborah, in particular, must process them in her attempt to exonerate her friend China River from an arrest for murder and the process and events that murder discloses and further prompts. Simon, nearly always the scientific mind, learns some things about himself and his emotional relationship with Deborah, too. The only verbal excess, in my way of thinking, was the repetition in the Margaret-Adrian (mother-son) dialogue, which could have been condensed greatly. So skip a page of that here and there and think about the relationships funnelling down to the end to solidify a strong theme.

Let me entertain you, Elizabeth George seems to be saying below the level of her story line. But who is the "you" to whom this writer writes? Not me, in any case. There is more than ample evidence of sexuality in all its crudity, more than enough four-letter words to get the point across that the character is angry/illiterate/a bully, and there are twists and turns galore before Simon St.James (but in this case his wife) reveals the killer. Oh, my, what a surprise!! Never would have suspected it!!
Elizabeth George is famous, has won many prizes for her writing, but I was not impressed and would not have kept reading this much-too-long novel if I hadn't been recuperating from surgery and in bed much of the day. The victim is such a conniving egotist that he cannot be sympathetic. The killer is so singleminded and covers it so successfully that the solution to the crime is as if pasted onto the character at the last minute. Which couldn't come too soon.
Oh, so much street-by-street geography as one character after another drives around the island of Guernsey! So much repetition of past events, past and present feelings on display. Such a blatant show of over-the-top sentimentality in the depiction of the boy and his dog. No wonder the book is 782 pages long.
Sorry, Amazon, but I don't expect to purchase another Elizabeth George novel from your capacious collection.

I am an avid Elizabeth George fan and have not only read almost everything she has written, but enthusiastically recommend her whenever possible. This one was a disappointment. Her wonderful writing style and my mild curiosity about "whodunit" was the only aspect that made me give it 3 stars instead of 2. Lynley and Havers were not in it, rather St. James and his wife, Deborah. The insight into their relationship was uninteresting as was their contribution to the plot. Deborah was downright annoying. The rationale behind the murder and its implementation was too farfetched. There was too much detail about things that didn't really matter, almost like she was trying to reach word quota.

I usually don't want her books to end and am tad woebegone when I have read the last page. I was glad to finish A Place of Hiding.
