Jean Charneski

Gideon Davies is the intriguing protoganist of A Traitor to Memory. He appears very self aware in sessions with his female psychiatrist yet completely unaware of what has triggered his sudden inability to play the violin after years as a child prodigy and concert performer. In the reader's initial encounter with him he seems unlikeable and irasible. Gradually, his vulnerability and obsession are revealed making it easier for the reader to be involved in his finding his childhood memories.
Inspectors Lynley and Havers are their usual perspicacious selves as they examine the deliberate hit and run murder of a poor woman lured to London for a meeting. Their ruminations in the woman's house show the astuteness that makes them wonderful detectives in all of Elizabeth George's books. Their lives and manners provide usual interest while taking a back seat to Gideon's search for himself aided by an unlikely ill-educated companion whom he has allowed to lodge in his house. The other characters are three dimensional and add to the color of this mystery.
