Yet another enjoyable read set in the island of Guernsey.

Reading it made me feel as though I have just been there.

A great read. For a detailed review click on the link below or paste it onto your browser.

När syskonen China och Cherokee via en annons får i uppdrag att transportera några viktiga ritningar från Kalifornien till ön Guernsey tar de chansen att tjäna lite pengar även om uppdraget verkar skumt.

På en strand på Guernsey hittas den 67-åriga miljonären Guy Brouard död, kvävd av en märklig talisman. Han har levt ensam med sin syster Ruth under många år, men varit gift flera gånger och har barn från de olika äktenskapen. När testamentet läses upp visar det sig att hans barn bara får en liten del av arvet, istället har han testamenterat en stor summa till två ungdomar på ön. Varför har de fått ärva? Vad har de för relation till Guy Brouard? Och vad har hänt med en ännu större summa pengar som på ett mystiskt sätt försvunnit ur landet?

This expedition of the Lynley series features St James and Deborah as they go to the Island of Guerney to help a friend of Deborah's who has been jailed for murder. I missed Lynley, Helen and Havers, but enjoyed the setting and the development of the story. ( )

One of my least favorite George mystery, solely because someone needs to slap Deborah St. James! ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553582372, Mass Market Paperback)

In this latest from bestseller Elizabeth George, China River, recuperating from a failed love affair, agrees to accompany her ne'er-do-well brother Cherokee to the Channel Islands to hand-deliver a set of architectural drawings to an expatriate millionaire whose plans to fund a museum commemorating the war-time exploits of his Guernsey neighbors comes a cropper after he's found dead under suspicious circumstances. George spins an intricate and lively plot that spotlights the efforts of series regulars Deborah and Simon St. John to help Deborah's old friends free themselves; in the process, she introduces a fascinating cast of secondary characters, many of whom had much more obvious motives to wish Guy Brouard dead than the California siblings who seem tailor-made for a frame-up. A fine addition to George's ouevre, this thirteenth outing in her popular series will delight her fans. --Jane Adams
