In her astonishing New York Times bestseller, acclaimed author Elizabeth George reveals the even darker truth behind this startling confession. Playing for the Ashes is a rich tale of passion, murder and love in which Inspector Thomas Lynley and Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers once again find themselves embroiled in a case where nothing--and no one--is really what it seems. Intense, suspenseful and brilliantly written, Playing for the Ashes will make readers "search out the sleuthing pair's first six adventures...a treasure," as Cosmopolitan predicted in their review.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Morrigan | 2/19/2014

    " I loved this book, she wove a tale that was intriguing and I didn't know who did it half way through. I will certainly read more of her books. "

    " The mystery itself was fascinating and character driven, as are all of Elizabeth George's books. This book wasn't my favorite of hers though because it told the story in alternating chapters told from two different perspectives on the crime. I prefer the books where the whole thing is from the perspective of Inspector Lynley. "

    " A bit slow overall but still pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Merry | 1/30/2014

    " One of the best Inspector Lynley books I've read to date! It had several sub-plots, and I was almost to the end before I knew for sure "whodunit." The only negative was some descriptions were a bit much for me (read: gory) and several of the characters were lower class, hence the dialog was a little "rough." But all in all, a very satisfying read. "
