Well-Schooled in Murder

An Inspector Lynley Mystery

(1)
The quiet, confident atmosphere of Bredgar Chambers School is shattered by the discovery of the body of one of its pupils in a country churchyard. Who murdered the brilliant boy and why? How did his body get from the school to the distant churchyard? Why had he lied about his exeat destination? Inspector Thomas Lynley and his partner, Barbara Havers, find their investigations hampered by the code of honour and loyalty that prevail in the old and distinguished public school. But they discover within the confines of that privileged community a culture of cruelty that stretches back across the generations.

Lynley and Havers at their best!

PLOT Set in the late 1980s at an elite public school in the South of England founded in 1489, the book, which is a mystery novel in the tradition of the whodunnit, revolves around the strict yet unwritten code of behaviour prevalent at independent schools which says that under no circumstances must pupils ever tell on their schoolmates, no matter what they have done. Accordingly, when a 13 year-old boy goes missing one Friday afternoon and two days later is found dead in a churchyard an hour's drive away, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, both of the Criminal Investigation Department of New Scotland Yard, are up against a wall of silence as none of the 600 pupils of Bredgar Chambers School seems to be willing to co-operate with the police and communicate what they know. REVIEW Over the years I have read quite a number of the Inspector Lynley Books, what I noticed was that Elizabeth George writing style turned more and more violent.I have to admit I more of the old fashioned murder type (Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where you could be sure someone was murdered out of jealousy or because of money) . Anyway Well Schooled in Murder was one of my favourite Lynley Mystery, it most certainly shows the funny and unbalanced partnership of Lynley and Havers, without the stupid rivalry of the beginning.
