REVIEW The Punishment She Deserves

Elizabeth George ´ 1 REVIEW SUMMARY ↠ IDELTA.US ´ Elizabeth George REVIEW á The Punishment She Deserves Citizens–Ian Druitt the local deacon–is accused of a serious crime Then while in police custody Ian is found dead Did he kill himself Or was he murderedWhen Barbara Havers is sent to Ludlow to investigate the chain of events that led to Ian’s death all the evidence points to suicide But Barbara can?. Who is the SheWho is the she in Elizabeth George s title There are many possibilities First the irrepressible insubordinate ill kempt Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers who is my favorite character in the whole series for her colorful way of saying off color things brilliant instincts and believable background Barbara has managed to piss off many of her superiors at Scotland Yard and at the beginning of the book she is sent off to Shropshire on an investigation with Detective Chief Superintendent Isabelle Ardery her arch nemesis The assignment has been designed as an opportunity for her to screw up and be appropriately punished by exile to the far northOr the she could be Isabelle Ardery herself whom we have come to dislike in the previous novel A Banuet of Conseuences for the way she lords it over Barbara s immediate boss Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley whom she outranks only because she now occupies the administrative position that he refused But very early in this new novel Ardery reveals herself to have a problem with alcohol and before long she is behaving worse than ever I might have said that some of her scenes are bit too melodramatic to be believable but then alcoholics can indeed behave in uite abnormal waysOne of the many ways in which Isabelle has failed is as a mother Her divorced husband is about to move with their two sons to New Zealand a decision she is fighting tooth and nail But there are at least two other mothers in the book who by having too little faith in their children are in serious danger of ruining their lives Any one of them could be the she in the title It is one of the themes that tie the book together as than merely another whodunnitFinally the she could be one of the handful of college age girls in the town of Ludlow where most of the action is set Students at West Mercia College we see them mostly either binge drinking having promiscuous sex or attempting to cope with the conseuences of either suffering punishments that are largely of their own making The novel opens with two such girls going to an end of term celebration in a local pub a situation that ends with them having to be carted away by the local Police Community Support Officer who is all that is left to keep order in Ludlow after deep cutbacks in the regular forceFor a long time the relevance of these first two dozen pages is not clear the case that brings Scotland Yard to Ludlow is the suicide in custody of a Church of England deacon an accused pedophile Isabelle and Barbara go there to report on the soundness of the original investigation and their inuiry occupies most of the next 200 pages But they return and for reasons I shall not disclose Barbara is sent out again this time with her own boss DI Lynley There are almost 500 pages still to go In them George will spend as much time or on other characters as she does with the detectives It is an unusual approach Rather than discovering information solely through the police investigation the reader is invited to share the thoughts and lives of a couple of dozen other characters who may be bystanders suspects victims officers of the law or sometimes several of these at onceFor the last two or three books of hers that I have read I have felt that Elizabeth George was no longer a mystery writer but a novelist who uses mystery as a means of prying open many other aspects of everyday life Hence the importance of recurrent themes such as motherhood substance abuse failing marriages and coming of age that knit the book together as a true novel rather than merely serving as clues to a solution I find the mixture utterly engaging especially since the American George now has no need to prove she can write a British mystery as well as any Brit and since what I call the series story the romantic lives of Lynley Havers and others is allowed to take a back seatAll the same I did not like this one uite as much as the last One reason is that the lives of all these teenagers Dena Missa Francie Chelsea Finn and Brutus is so far from my own now and often so sualid that I had a hard time caring about them as much as some of the older characters Another is that I found it difficult to understand the mission of the Met s first trip to Ludlow Isabelle insists that it is not to investigate the deacon s death or the justification for his arrest in the first place though Barbara keeps blundering into the no go area it is uite a relief when on her trip with Lynley it becomes like a normal investigation And the reason for there even being a second trip at all hangs on a uestion of chronology that seems to be a matter of sloppy plotting on George s part Perhaps I also felt that George was a little perfunctory in tying up some of her many subplots not the mysteries which were admirably solved but some novel aspects such as the rehabilitation of the various problem characters which seemed a trifle too optimistic But this could also be a compliment to her ability to create such characters in the first place and take them into emotional areas far beyond the range of a normal genre offeringIn her acknowledgements George remarks that she likes to research a particular part of England in which to set each novel She used Somerset for her previous book this time she moves north to Ludlow in Shropshire the bracing hills and smaller villages around and the cathedral cities of the west country And she is very good in evoking her setting I was at school in Shropshire sixty years ago and revisited the area a decade ago It took me back to my last trip to that region when I took the photos of Ludlow belowSee my first comment which I have posted as a spoiler 10 Button Book found dead Did he kill himself Or was he murderedWhen Barbara Havers is
