Waterstones Says

The gripping 21st Inspector Lynley mystery sees the redoubtable detective and his colleagues investigating the death of a Nigerian born DS amidst the presence of a sinister cultural practice.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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

“Long and complicated, but absolutely gripping.”

This is the latest title (Book 21) in the Inspector Lynley series. There’s been quite a gap in the schedule since Book 20 was published back in 2018, but the characters and settings were familiar and it was easy to... More
