What a delightful book and what a discovery! I was not familiar with this writer but now she is on my list, definitely. Set in the contemporary world, these stories are truly jewels, treats to savor one at a time. They deal with several different themes and always have a quirk. In "Fences are not enough" an elderly lady is the victim of some nosy and arrogant neighbors - or is she? The protagonist of another story, a jealous husband, gets in the end exactly what he deserves, although at a very high price. My favorite story was the one that gives the title to the collection, "I, Richard." Greed, murder, ambition - 500 years ago and now - make this story gripping from the start, although the end is really not too hard to fathom. Well, I definitely recommend this book (not to children or young readers, though) and am going to plow through all the other works by Elizabeth George.

Old-fashioned and okay, but not remarkable. Thomas Lynley makes an appearance.
