  1. I love British mysteries as well, including the Lynley shows. I’ve also started reading one of the books and know what you mean about her dialogue. However, the books seem different from the TV show, in that there’s more of the personal and societal dynamics than crime-solving. What do you think? Cheers, Earl

    • Hello! Long time no see! 🙂
      Yeah the books seem to be a lot more involved than the series – I think with the show they pick just the main threads – but of course you also lose the different point of view shifts mostly in the series. I think it’s quite funny that she’s not a British author, though maybe that’s why she’s worked so hard at the rhythms of different people’s speech?
