Careless in Red

By Elizabeth George
626 pages. Harper. $27.95.

In her previous two novels the mystery writer Elizabeth George has played fast and loose with the genre’s rules, killing off a main character (Helen, the wife of her aristocratic New Scotland Yard detective Thomas Lynley) and then spending a book examining the motivations of her killer (“What Came Before He Shot Her”). “Careless in Red” begins with Lynley deep in mourning, walking alone down the coast of Cornwall. Near a small resort called Casvelyn, he discovers the body of a young man who has fallen to his death while climbing the cliffs. The body turns out to be that of Santo Kerne and, as a procedural demands, there seem to have been a number of people who might want him dead, including, perhaps, the mysterious Daidre Trahair, at whose cottage Lynley winds up after finding the body.
