Product description

Review

Stunning 20th Thomas Lynley novel. George tackles a number of emotionally charged social issues with sensitivity and grace. Exquisitely rendered characters and a powerful sense of place enhance the meticulously crafted mystery, which satisfies as a standalone while furthering the series arc. - Publishers' Weekly

George threads in the activities - and the secrets - of the people of Ludlow, eventually tying the various plotlines into the crime at the center of this well-wrought mystery. George's Inspector Lynley series is more about characters than crime, and she is sympathetic to the human failings of those characters.The sheer size of this book shouldn't dissuade readers: bolstered by George's polished prose, the twentieth Lynley mystery moves briskly along, showing the author at the peak of her powers. - Booklist

Praise for 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. - Saga

She's a designer of fastidious mosaics that never fail to intrigue - Guardian

She writes extremely well, plots brilliantly and reaches an emotional level deeper than most - The Times

Presses all the buttons to make us hoover her stuff up - Daily Telegraph

The best plotter in the mystery game, [her] elegant literate flow puts many Brits to shame - Time Out
