"Elizabeth George reigns as queen of the mystery genre. The Lynley books constitute the smartest, most gratifyingly complex and impassioned mystery series now being published."
The spellbinding new Inspector Lynley novel from Elizabeth George, New York Times bestselling author of Careless in Red and What Came Before He Shot Her.
'An intelligent book, clipped and precise, every word chosen with care ... a cool, clever book that needs concentration and a sharp brain to unravel ... Along the way to solving the crime we meet some finely drawn characters who emerge as real people with faults and frailties. Ms George is the connoisseur's crime writer. Like fine wine, her words need to be savoured ... Lynley is a policeman with a gentle touch and it is good to have him back on such brilliant form.' -- Sunday Express 'The author writes brilliantly and has an incredible ability to set a scene and create characters you want to know more about.' -- Sun 'Terrific as always - and how great to have Lynley back on the force.' -- Time Out 'Hurrah, another Inspector Lynley ... This is crime writing at its finest. George's books are long, solid and wonderfully crafted; she is a modern Dorothy L Sayers.' -- Saga
