"A compelling mystery, intricately plotted, with multiple twists and a satisfyingly devious finale. George is brilliant at juggling so many motives and so many suspects, keeping the reader enthralled, and coming up with such a "cliver solution" Marcel Berlins, The Times Two bodies - the corpses of a young man and woman - are discovered in the middle of a pre-historic stone circle in Derbyshire. Each met death in a different fashion. Each died violently. The grisly crime promises to be one of the toughest assignments at Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley's career. For the dead girl was the daughter of a former officer in an elite undercover unit, a man Lynley once regarded as a mentor. Now, as Lynley wrestles with the intricacies of the case in the Peak District, Barbara Havers, determined to redeem herself after her recent demotion, crisscrosses London seeking information on the second victim. As the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place, Lynley and Havers are once again forced to confront the icy realisation that human relationships are often murderous ... and that the blood that binds can also kill. Praise for Elizabeth Georges previous novel, DECEPTION ON HIS MIND: "[A] rich, multi-layered novel... All the important contemporary themes are covered and handled with a skill and sureness of touch that only years of practice can achieve... it feels so right and real" Guardian "She can compete with the best... a book worthy of her immense talent" The Times "George is excellent at slowly unfolding plot and atmosphere... fine writing and sensitive handling of relationships" Independent
