In her most eagerly anticipated novel yet, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George brings back Scotland Yard's Thomas Lynley to investigate a ruthless crime.
Scotland Yard's Thomas Lynley returns to investigate what may be a perfect crime.
After the senseless murder of his wife, Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley turned in his badge and walked away from Scotland Yard. Returning to his home in Cornwall, he has spent weeks hiking the cliff-side trails of the Cornish coast, trying to cope with the painful memories associated with her loss.
But the past will not let go. On a lonely stretch of coastline, Lynley discovers the body of a young man. Thus begins a quest to unmask a clever and ruthless murderer. But this time, Lynley�s not in charge. He's a witness and possibly even a suspect. The local detective leading the investigation soon figures out that Lynley can help. So can his former associate Barbara Havers, whom Scotland Yard sends to Cornwall, ostensibly to assist in the investigation, but unofficially to check up on Lynley and possibly win him back to the Yard.
