Elizabeth George’s Inspector Lynley has a problem with his partner, or a problem partner depending on how you look at things. Either way, in this latest installment of the Inspector Lynley mysteries, the fashion-impaired Barbara Havers goes way out on the proverbial limb to help her friend find his missing daughter. Once she’s out on the limb, however, she has to decide where her loyalties lie…with her job or with the search to find the missing girl. Is it possible she’ll go so far that even Lynley’s influence can’t save her job this time?
Once again, Elizabeth George spins an intriguing and highly entertaining tale about the frailties of humanity as seen through the eyes of our favorite members of the Met. The story is fresh and highly entertaining with just enough twists and turns in the plot to make even the most avid mystery reader wonder at what the outcome may be. If you’ve never made Inspector Lynley’s acquaintance, I highly recommend this series. It’s a great combination of witty Brit-isms, interesting characters and terrific plot.
