About the book
Thrillingly satisfying crime from a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller in both hardback and paperback.
13 million TV viewers have watched The Inspector Lynley Mysteries on the BBC.
A Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller.
George is one of the best crime novelists around - there's a richness and psychological depth to her work which lifts it well above genre fluff.' Time Out
Detective Inspector Lynley is approached by business magnate Bernard Fairclough for a confidential review - not a formal investigation - of the circumstances of his nephew's demise. The coroner's verdict is accidental death.

Recovering from the murder of his wife, Lynley has personal reasons for welcoming a spell away from London. He heads to the wild beauty of the Lake District, with Deborah and Simon St James to provide cover for his inquiries. Barbara Havers, back at base, makes her own unique contribution to the case, distracted only by Isabelle's ambitions to improve her Detective Sergeant's appearance.

When he comes to know the various members of the extended Fairclough dynasty, Lynley finds many possible motives for murder, and uncovers layers of deceit and betrayal that expose the lies at the heart of the Cumbrian community.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
The author writes brilliantly and has an incredible ability to set a scene and create characters you want to know more about.'
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.'
A confession: I'm addicted to Elizabeth George; her crime novels combine Victorian craftsmanship, psychological observation and ingenious plotting. George's celebrated attention to detail keeps the reader totally immersed. Bliss.'
She's a designer of fastidious mosaics that never fail to intrigue.'
Presses all the buttons to make us hoover her stuff up'
A fascinating read.'
