I, Richard, by Elizabeth George

I, Richard, by Elizabeth George

I’ve written about Elizabeth George before, and was looking forward to sampling some of her short story work. The first one, Exposure, featured her famous Inspector Lynley but the other four did not. While I was disappointed at first, the other stories are pretty good in their own right. They are very O. Henry-ish, with the endings heavy on irony. While this makes them a bit predictable, they were still interesting.

First Sentence (from Exposure):
When members of the History of British Architecture class thought about the Abinger Manor Affair later on, each one of them would say that Sam Cleary had been the likeliest candidate for murder.
