The career of playwright Joy Sinclair comes to a rather abrupt end on an isolated estate in the Scottish Highlands when someone drives an 18-inch dirk through her neck. Called upon to investigate the case in a country with virtually no authority, the aristocratic Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, grapple for both a motive and a murderer.

Emotions run deep in this highly charged drama, for the list of suspects soon includes Britain's foremost actress, its most successful theatrical producer, and the woman Lynley loves. He and Havers must tread carefully over the complicated terrain of human relationships, while they work to solve a case rooted in the darkest corners of the past and the unexplored regions of the human heart.

Listener Opinions

    " It was okay and I read it in a hurry so it did hold my interest but I don't really think I'm a mystery fan since this is the third I've read in a month and don't think I want to read another for awhile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sofia | 4/28/2011

    " As entertaining and well written as the first.

    I did guess correctly "who'd done it" by 2/3rd of the book, though. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 4/2/2011

    " Not quite as good as "Well Schooled in Murder," the other George book I've read so far, but satisfying nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 3/11/2011

    " This is a fascionating story of police detecting and social class distinctions in England, that takes place in, I'm not exactly sure when. Recently? 50 years ago? Hmm... very enjoyable. I kept guessing (wrong) who the killer was, though in the end, I was right! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 2/5/2011

    " I would have given it 3 and a half stars but they don't have that designation. A good, moody mystery. Worth the read but I liked her book, A Great Deliverance better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 12/20/2010

    " Hmmm a bit like the game Cluedo!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harry | 12/11/2010

    " Well crafted and a page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/23/2010

    " Another fantastic book in the Lynley series. This one had me guessing. I never figured out who was the killer until it was revealed. So well done! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 11/18/2010

    " Love this author! Her writing is so smooth! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 11/17/2010

    " This is my favorite of EG. This one kept me on edge the whole time. I couldn't put it down :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 10/6/2010

    " Excellent book that keeps you guessing. George's character work is unmatched. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 10/6/2010

    " This was a much less gruesome story than the 1st book. I like Lynley and the tension between he and Havers because of their different backgrounds and class, although I felt it was a little overplayed this story. Some sex and gruesome details, but a quick good mystery. "
