Apparently Believing the Lie is the 17th book in a series by Elizabeth George and yet again I had no clue when I received the book but I read it anyway. The book can stand on its own. The book centers on Tommy who is a Detective Inspector at Scotland Yard and a case that he has been asked to oversee and solve. The case is convoluted and endless allowing other characters to make appearances and get involved. This is a very lengthy and often time drawn-out novel.
