Inspector Lynley investigates the London end of an ever more darkly disturbing case, with Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata looking behind the peaceful facade of country life to discover a twisted world of desire and deceit.

The suicide of William Goldacre is devastating to those left behind. But what was the cause of his tragedy and how far might the consequences reach? Is there a link between the young man's leap from a Dorset cliff and a horrific poisoning in Cambridge?

Following various career-threatening misdemeanours, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers is desperate to redeem herself. So when a past encounter with bestselling feminist writer Clare Abbott and her pushy personal assistant Caroline Goldacre gives her a connection to the Cambridge murder, Barbara begs DI Thomas Lynley to let her pursue the crime.

Full of shocks, intensity and suspense from first page to last, A Banquet of Consequences reveals both Lynley and Havers under pressure, and author Elizabeth George writing at the very height of her exceptional powers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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.

-- Kate Saunders * Saga *
She's a designer of fastidious mosaics that never fail to intrigue * Guardian *
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 *
She writes extremely well, plots brilliantly and reaches an emotional level deeper than most * The Times *
Her treatment of the Mediterranean settings (along with a raft of intriguing new characters) shows a new exuberance . . . George aficionados will consider that Just One Evil Act possesses (as Schumann said of Schubert's Great C Major symphony) "heavenly length". -- Barry Forshaw * Independent *

I've missed the last few cases in the careers of Lynley and Havers, but this has inspired me to back track and fill the gaps. An engrossing tale of complicated family relationships, where everyone seems just one... More
