A hugely complex and entertaining novel – Star Pick*, The Times Crime Club

Elizabeth George delivers another intelligent, intricate mystery – New York Times

Superlative . . . This is a memorable addition to [the Inspector Lynley] series – Publishers Weekly (starred, boxed review)

Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley are back in the next Lynley novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Elizabeth George.

A Nigerian born detective sergeant working for the Metropolitan Police is found unconscious in her own flat and ends up in hospital where she dies of her injury. The post-mortem reveals that the subdural hematoma is the result of a blow to her head. DI Thomas Lynley, DS Barbara Havers and DS Winston Nkata are called in to investigate a case that touches upon not only the work and the life of the murdered detective but also upon a controversial cultural tradition that damages and often destroys the future of everyone it involves.


"Abso-bloody-lutely" good! That would be DS Barbara Havers' verdict on this one. . . . An unsettling and thoroughly involving narrative

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
