elizElizabeth George‘s new novel in the Inspector Lynley series is out now in paperback. It is Careless in Red, published by Harper.

Some readers new to the Lynley series may be surprised to learn that George is an American, as Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley is British, the novels are set in England (the recent one in Cornwall), and Lynley is also from an aristocratic family.  George grew up in San Francisco and earned degrees in psychology before becoming a novelist. She now lives in Seattle.

Her Lynley novels have been adapted to television on the BBC and may be viewed on PBS.

Elizabeth George has also supported writers’ fellowships at the Hedgebrook Writers’ retreat on Whidbey Island.  Here is a link to her web site, which includes video of a recent interview with her:
