Whodunits, courtroom dramas and suspense tales make up this often brilliant anthology.
The book is about many things.
There was no resolution in the end, not that there really could be, but it was emotionally draining. A family torn apart by lies and murder. Sometimes I think I notice glitches in mystery novel plotting, but never ones this bad. I kept waiting (for 700+ pages) for George to pull it all together and explain why the reader had to slog through this painful tale to reap the few gems in the muck, but she never did. The Child, aka Baby Yoda, is almost back!
This has to be one of the worst adaptations of novel to film I have seen.

And by now, the reader of the series is more interested in the continuing characters than in the others around whom the mystery revolves, especially when (a) the non-continuing characters are not well-drawn--what we know about them revolves around the same shallow redundancies, (b) the telling of the mystery is chronologically mixed up without enough signposts to readers to help us orient ourselves--the date in a chapter heading isn't enough, and (c) the transitions where events are occurring more-or-less chronologically, but to different people, are difficult to follow. I was completely baffled when I read the ending. Inspector Lynley is of course excited, but I think the joy of being a father is somewhat dampened by Havers submitting her letter of resignation to DSI Webberley at his wedding anniversary party.

A Traitor to Memory.
‘A Traitor to Memory,’ by Elizabeth George is a compelling, fascinating book. Awards While attending an anniversary party at his superior officer's house, Lynley is given the task of investigating the death by car of a woman. I didn't understand the ending at all but the book is well written and holds your interest. The ending--in which two characters suddenly begin behaving in rather uncharacteristic fashion--is most unsatisfactory. WPC Mason John McGlynn.
Why oh why did I mentally promise to read all the books in this series?

The book alternates between long, first-person passages by a protagonist named Gideon Davies, who is writing his thoughts and memories to his therapist, and third-person passages telling of the efforts of others, including Thomas Lynley, Barbara Havers, and Winston Nkata, to solve the murders of people related in some way to Gideon, as well telling of other events and people in Gideon's life.

Film in general is an inferior medium to print, at least in the hands of a fine writer like George. There is actually one more, but it starts with someone being buried alive.

I'm always happy to reconnect with Lynley and Havers, as well as their friends, family, and associates. Havers and Helen are so totally wrong! He and most of the people related to his life are not worth spending so much time with.
1,009 was quite enough. Yet what is truly damaging is what Webberly already knows and no doubt wants Lynley … i mean, obviously he's done for, but jill is way out in left field by the end of the book.
It’s a long book – over 1000 pages long – but the writing is strong, the plot well-conceived, and the characters well developed.
