Publisher's Summary

A young student at St. Stephen's College, the daughter of a professor up for a prestigious post, is found brutally murdered on an isolated jogging path. Unwilling to turn the killing over to the local police, the university calls in New Scotland Yard. Thus Lynley and his partner Havers enter the rarified world of Cambridge University, where academic gowns often hide murderous intentions. For both officers, the true identity of Elena Weaver proves as elusive as the mythical creature whose image decorated her dorm room. Not until they come to terms with the woman she was will they have a line on the killer - who just may kill again.

Not Even a Short Story

This was the first abridged book I've read, and it will be the last. In the unabridged form, Elizabeth George's books are an all around wonderful experience. In this case, the story and characters were so underdeveloped, that it wasn't even like reading a short story. The music didn't help to fill in the gaps where the writing should have been, it just made it sound tacky.
What is the point in making a book abridged, when all it does is detract from what would be best seller?

An Unfair Abridgement!

What disappointed you about For the Sake of Elena?

Elizabeth George writes complex mysteries that should not be abridged. This was an especially bad job. If you like George's work, buy another. If you don't know her yet, buy another--this is not a good introduction.
