    • Abstract:
      Summary: When a Member of Parliament shows up at New Scotland Yard requesting an investigation into the suicide of the son of one of his constituents in the beautiful town of Ludlow, the Assistant Commissioner sees two opportunities in this request: the first is to have an MP owing him a favour, and the second is to get rid of Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, whose career at the Met has been hanging by a thread for quite some time. So he assigns Havers to the case and for good measure partners her with the one person who shares his wish to see the back of her, Detective Chief Superintendent Isabelle Ardery. But Ardery has her own difficulties. She is not happy to be sent away from London and as a result is in a rush to return. This causes her to overlook things, important things, and prevents her from uncovering an earlier crime that set everything in motion.

Booklist Reviews 2018 March #1

*Starred Review* The death of a person in police custody always presents problems. Even after local authorities and an independent police commission find the death of accused pedophile Deacon Ian Druitt—in jail in the historic town of Ludlow, England—to be a suicide, Scotland Yard is asked to investigate. Newly appointed DCS Isabelle Ardery is sent to look into the case, taking along impetuous DS Barbara Havers, but when their report is inconclusive, DI Thomas Lynley must step in to help wrap up the case. Along the way, George threads in the activities—and the secrets—of the people of Ludlow, eventually tying the various plotlines into the crime at the center of this well-wrought mystery. George's Inspector Lynley series is more about characters than crime, and she is sympathetic to the human failings of those characters—notably, in this case, those of an Indian doctor who overmanages her daughters' lives and of the acerbic Ardery, whose alcoholism has already caused the loss of her marriage and her twin sons and is now threatening her career. The sheer size of this book (more than 700 pages) shouldn't dissuade readers: bolstered by George's polished prose, the twentieth Lynley mystery moves briskly along, showing the author at the peak of her powers.

LJ Reviews 2017 October #2

No. 1 New York Times best-selling George returns with the next mystery featuring DI Thomas Lynley and his partner DS Barbara Havers, who's in the lead here. Approached by a Member of Parliament with a request to investigate the supposed suicide of a constituent's son, New Scotland Yard's assistant commissioner sees an opportunity to stick Havers with an impossible case and thence get rid of her. (He's not a fan.) George's last title was in 2015, so folks will be clamoring.
