“[A] juicy serial killer whodunit.”
USA Today

“Delicately textured...achingly compassionate....It’s one of George’s best, and that’s saying something.”
Seattle Times

The 13th novel in Elizabeth George’s acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Inspector Linley crime fiction series, With No One as Witness is arguably the most riveting, shocking, and emotionally compelling of the lot. The hunt for a serial killer who has been murdering and mutilating young boys in London has Scotland Yard Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley and his team of investigators racing to stop the slaughter, only to have the investigation nearly derailed by one devastating, truly game changing event. An American author, George has been praised as “a master of the British mystery” by the New York Times, one of only two Yanks whose crime novels have been adapted for the PBS TV series, “Mystery,”  and her exceptional police procedurals rank with the best of Ian Rankin, Peter Robinson, and Ruth Rendell.

  • “[A] juicy serial killer whodunit.”

    USA Today

  • “Excellent.”

    Globe and Mail (Toronto)

  • “This one grabs the reader all the way.”

    Associated Press

  • “George fully develops every nuance of the racially loaded case—and every thrill in the chase. But it’s the note on which the novel ends that stuns as the series is violently wrenched onto new ground.” 

    New York Daily News

  • “Delicately textured...achingly compassionate...gripping...it’s one of George’s best.”

    Seattle Times

  • “Powerful.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “This is an outstanding and explosive addition to a popular series.”  

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Veteran thriller writer George, an American, is as at home with the social dynamics of the seedier parts of London as she is with the multidimensional personalities of Lynley and his colleagues. This is a riveting installment in a superb series—far more than just plain good.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Always entertaining.”

    Nashville Tennessean

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry | 2/14/2014

    " Almost 800 pages ! I haven't read anything this long in ages. Very enjoyable. Full character development with several sub-plots and turns. A dark psychological thriller with a sad ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamsin Ramone | 2/10/2014

    " Wonderfully suspenseful! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Audrey | 1/31/2014

    " ugh - it starts out okay (or at least bearable) but the ending totally sucks. don't read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corrie Aw. | 1/21/2014

    " The writing is really good, but I couldn't bring myself to give the book four stars because the theme of child abuse freaked me out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 1/21/2014

    " A wonderful book, like all of her books, but much too long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martina Reitz | 1/17/2014

    " Elizabeth may write great detective stories. She explains all the characters and gives details which lead to the solution. I enjoyed all the Inspector Lynley series. But this one is so sad ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 1/15/2014

    " This was one of those, "I can't put it down 'til I finish it" books. I read it in French because that's where I am at present. Riveting in places, it did lag in a few others but I put that to my poor French comprehension. I read a lot of "who dunnit's" and this one, I must say surprised me, held me in mental orbit for the entire book. It was very well written. Definitely going to be looking for more of her work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Withers | 1/10/2014

    " One of the most intense of the Inspector Lynley novels, you'll have a hard time putting this one down. The pair are on a mission to catch a serial killer, one who likes young boys and sacrificial rites. The killer is caught in the end, but not before there is a lot of tension at Scotland Yard. I wanted to strangle Hillier! He's just impossible! There is a huge unexpected twist near the end of the novel that leads into the next novel. The ending is unexpected, and I don't mean the identity of the killer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Gosslin | 1/10/2014

    " If you are a fan of this series, this book will stop you in your tracks. It is another complex and compelling mystery that unfolds ever so slowly, seeming to lead one way yet at the last moment leading unimaginably, and tragically, in another. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty Sutton | 12/21/2013

    " quite the page-turner, couldn't put it down though parts of it were pretty horrifying - just picked up the sequel, What Came Before He Shot Her "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bev Hankins | 12/18/2013

    " Love Elizabeth George. Do NOT love this book or the one that follows. Could not explain why without major spoilers. I am only keeping the copy I have because it was a gift from a dear friend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin | 12/17/2013

    " Pretty good read. Lots of mystery throughout the entire story. There's a serial killer on the loose & even with an entire police force searching, no one comes any closer to the truth behind the killings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 11/22/2013

    " If you like to read crime fiction once in a while I would recommend Elizabeth George because the plot is always good and the characters aren't as stereotypical as in most detective stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne-Ellice Pascoe | 10/21/2013

    " I have read only 2 of her books and enjoyed them. The Detective Thomas is not like the ones you see in the movies...his character can be a little confussing. I found that I needed to go back and re-read a chapter to clarrify a few things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Precious | 9/25/2013

    " An interesting read but George's attempts at getting English dialogue right are just excruciating! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie Maskus | 6/9/2013

    " Read for Evening Edition Book Club "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Allen | 4/2/2013

    " This is the best one I've read since early in the series. I had to stay up very late to finish it, and it is compelling right the way through. Top marks for Lynley, Havers, and Nkata! Also for Elizabeth George. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Berninger | 11/27/2012

    " This is the first of this series I've read, and I'll definitely pick up some of the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth A | 1/7/2012

    " Another great Lynley and Havers murder mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/7/2012

    " I really hated the fact that she kills off Helen in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 10/11/2011

    " Mystery writing at some of its finest. Elizabeth George could blow away most other New York Times best-selling mystery writers, trust me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annelies | 9/29/2011

    " untill the last 5 pages, you still have 3 people who can be the murderer!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn Lucero | 8/28/2011

    " Enjoyed this book very much. Looking forward to the next one in the series as I saw it in the bookstore "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Perry | 6/11/2011

    " Solid mystery with a very sad event. The reader took some getting used to. @PerryMissner "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glennie | 5/8/2011

    " Gripping. You can't put it down. But it's emotionally devastating. I was not prepared for a certain event (which I won't mention for those who haven't read it) and it blew me away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jandblock | 4/26/2011

    " I like all of the Inspector Lynley series but this one wasn;t too happy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steffi | 3/15/2011

    " This was the last novel of The Linley series I read, because with the death of Helen everything ends. I think it was a bad choice to kill off the one good thing in Linley's life. Helen is missing in every later novel of this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Inese | 2/26/2011

    " A bit slow in the middle, but the last 100 or so pages are real page turners. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/23/2011

    " Good mystery plus personal drama of the characters. Would have been okay with just the mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 2/10/2011

    " I threw this book across the room in outrage before I went back and read the last 200 pages in tears. Hard to be mad at someone who can write tis beatifully. Rip-your-heart-out good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Peggy | 1/16/2011

    " I got tired of Lynley and his coterie about two books into the series, but kept reading mostly for Havers. After this awful, overlong, tedious and deeply dissatisfying book, no more. Also, Ms. George should forever eschew writing in dialiect, because she can't do it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annalisa | 1/4/2011

    " in questo episodio la George supera se stessa. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 12/12/2010

    " Long but extremely well written especially for the genre. Even when I thought I knew the twists - and some I did - I was still surprised at some others. I feel as if I read another one her books when I was in London and have been trying to remember since "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 12/6/2010

    " Great murder mystery, Elizabeth George is one of the best when it comes to them. This one keeps you guessing until almost the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valissa | 11/18/2010

    " "Life had strings but no guarantees."

    As much as I love the first fistful of these books, after I read this one I sobbed and sobbed and turned away forever.
    ok I exaggerate, but I can't imagine ever buying another Elizabeth George book.
    I'm just too heartbroken. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 11/7/2010

    " This is the best one I've read since early in the series. I had to stay up very late to finish it, and it is compelling right the way through. Top marks for Lynley, Havers, and Nkata! Also for Elizabeth George. "
