An Inspector Lynley Novel: 21
Superlative . . . This is a memorable addition to [the Inspector Lynley] series * Publishers Weekly (starred, boxed review) * "Abso-bloody-lutely" good! That would be DS Barbara Havers' verdict on this one. . . . An unsettling and thoroughly involving narrative * Booklist * A skillfully spun yarn of murder and mayhem * Kirkus Reviews * A hugely complex and entertaining novel * Star Pick*, The Times Crime Club * It feels like meeting old friends and that you're almost solving the crime together * Belfast Telegraph * A superbly written, complex but challenging read * Peterborough Telegraph * A well-plotted, fast-paced mystery * Women's Weekly * Expert pacing, plotting and the creation of psychologically convincing characters...make this well worth reading. Elizabeth George has been the recipient of a very number of prestigious awards for her writing...this new work, which engages with much darkness but finds some hope, might well gain her more * Irish Examiner *
