While browsing the book aisle in Wal-Mart the other day, I noticed the latest Elizabeth George novel, What Came Before He Shot Her,
was out in paperback.
And while I wasn't a huge fan of the book, I was still excited to see it. Because a new paperback publication often means a new hardcover novel is on the way. I picked up a copy of the book and flipped to the back and was greeted by an excerpt from her new "Inspector Thomas Lynley" (no mention of Havers?!? What the heck?!?) that was promised as "Coming soon..."
So, when I got home, I surfed to her web site, figuring details would be there. Nothing. Checked Amazon and after scrolling through pages of her works, still no mention of it. I finally had to check Wikipedia and got that the book is supposed to come out in 2008.
2008?!? And you tease me by only calling it a "Lynley novel" after what happened in the final pages of With No One as Witness
Come on! I need something here...some small tid-bit, some clue, some morsel to keep me going until the novel appears in bookstores and libraries.
I guess I know how you Harry Potter fans must have felt in the days months leading up to the release of The Deathly Hallows
