SUMMARY: In one of her most compelling mysteries, bestselling novelist Elizabeth George explores the darker landscapes of human relationships. An isolated beach on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel is the scene of the murder of Guy Brouard, one of Guernsey’s wealthiest inhabitants and its main benefactor.

An isolated beach on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel is the scene of the murder of Guy Brouard, one of Guernsey’s wealthiest inhabitants and its main benefactor. Forced as a child to flee the Nazis in Paris, Brouard was engaged in his latest project when he died: a museum in honor of those who resisted the German occupation of the island during World War II.It is from this period of time that his murderer may well have come. But there are others on Guernsey with reason to want Guy Brouard dead: his wives, his business associates, his current mistress, the underprivileged teenagers he mentored—any of whom might have harbored a secret motive for murder. As family and friends gather for the reading of the will, Deborah and Simon St. James find that seemingly everyone on the history-haunted island has something to hide. And behind all the lies and alibis, a killer is lurking. In order to bring this person to justice, the St. James must delve into Guernsey’s dark history—both past and present—and into the troubled psyche of someone who may have exacted retribution for the most unspeakable crime of all.In A Place of Hiding, bestselling novelist Elizabeth George marks new territory in the darker landscapes of human relationships. She tells a gripping, suspenseful story of betrayal and devotion, war and remembrance, love and loss...and the higher truths to which we must all ultimately answer.From the Hardcover edition.

This book is an excellent read, As a long timed George fan I enjoyed the move away from the expected characters and places. Her insights into differences as well as the similarities in American experience and philosophy versus the English versions are fascinating to me..George's assay of the complexity and depth, {or lack thereof}, of interpersonal relationships is something psychology students/practitioners should all integrate into their understanding.The historical information is vivid. And the present's emotional events unforgettable, How refreshing this multiplicity of characters and juxtapositions of countries has been. The pace of this book left me time to muse over my own experiences and absorb other perspectives of events of my own Life, which have included an array of disabilities. I did not feel rushed to get to the end but had time to savour each remarkable notion and scene. The art history lesson, sans all of the facts, was a little cherry on top of this multilayered novel! Lastly, George's tender treatment of animals and the horror of all abuse, whether human or creature, speaks directly to my heart. From the icy waters of a morning swim, through the devastation of a little girls seashell innocence, history is blown open, thrown open by old wounds and by truth. The consequential dark windfilled circumambulation of a cemetery of young Nazis, and the final halting growth and redemption of individual progress proves that Elizabeth George continues to be the master of the psychological mystery!

I don't know why this is called an Inspector Lynley novel, he's only on about one page in the book, the remainder is about Deborah and Simon St. James. I found this book to be pretty boring and I don't care for the character Deborah St. James. To me she's an unpleasant brat. Why Lynley used to be in love with her and why Simon is so madly in love with her is beyond me. Had I known that Lynley and Havers weren't in this one, I would have skipped it.

"A Place of Hiding" is a book about relationships: mother-daughter (mostly missing), mother-son (mostly antagonistic), father-son (inept to problematic), father-daughter (challenging), sibling (mostly dysfunctional but with an eerie loyalty in some cases), friendship (surprising, often revengeful), lover-lusty (older and younger, mind-bending), and husband-wife (not only the St. Jameses but...point taken, right?). In fact, Elizabeth George has done a masterful job of linking all these relationships to the St. James' central relationship. Every single relationship, from parental to sibling to friendship is played out in characters peripheral to the St. Jameses. The reader could almost chart these inexorable links to Deborah and Simon's marriage. Deborah, in particular, must process them in her attempt to exonerate her friend China River from an arrest for murder and the process and events that murder discloses and further prompts. Simon, nearly always the scientific mind, learns some things about himself and his emotional relationship with Deborah, too. The only verbal excess, in my way of thinking, was the repetition in the Margaret-Adrian (mother-son) dialogue, which could have been condensed greatly. So skip a page of that here and there and think about the relationships funnelling down to the end to solidify a strong theme.

I don't like Deborah St. James. She's childish, bratty, and self-involved. I've had more than enough of her eternal angst. Unfortunately, Simon and she are the protagonists in this one. I didn't care much for her friend China either or China's brother. They just weren't interesting. Plot was Ok. The setting and some other characters were interesting. Not as good a book as many of the others in the series. More Lynley, Havers, and anyone other than Deborah.

Let me entertain you, Elizabeth George seems to be saying below the level of her story line. But who is the "you" to whom this writer writes? Not me, in any case. There is more than ample evidence of sexuality in all its crudity, more than enough four-letter words to get the point across that the character is angry/illiterate/a bully, and there are twists and turns galore before Simon St.James (but in this case his wife) reveals the killer. Oh, my, what a surprise!! Never would have suspected it!!
Elizabeth George is famous, has won many prizes for her writing, but I was not impressed and would not have kept reading this much-too-long novel if I hadn't been recuperating from surgery and in bed much of the day. The victim is such a conniving egotist that he cannot be sympathetic. The killer is so singleminded and covers it so successfully that the solution to the crime is as if pasted onto the character at the last minute. Which couldn't come too soon.
Oh, so much street-by-street geography as one character after another drives around the island of Guernsey! So much repetition of past events, past and present feelings on display. Such a blatant show of over-the-top sentimentality in the depiction of the boy and his dog. No wonder the book is 782 pages long.
Sorry, Amazon, but I don't expect to purchase another Elizabeth George novel from your capacious collection.

I am an avid Elizabeth George fan and have not only read almost everything she has written, but enthusiastically recommend her whenever possible. This one was a disappointment. Her wonderful writing style and my mild curiosity about "whodunit" was the only aspect that made me give it 3 stars instead of 2. Lynley and Havers were not in it, rather St. James and his wife, Deborah. The insight into their relationship was uninteresting as was their contribution to the plot. Deborah was downright annoying. The rationale behind the murder and its implementation was too farfetched. There was too much detail about things that didn't really matter, almost like she was trying to reach word quota.

I usually don't want her books to end and am tad woebegone when I have read the last page. I was glad to finish A Place of Hiding.
