Thomas Lynley is called back to Scotland Yard when the body of a woman is found stabbed and abandoned in an isolated London cemetery. His former team doesn’t trust the leadership of their new department chief, Isabelle Ardery, but Lynley may be the sole person who can see beneath his superior officer’s hard-as-nails exterior to a hidden—and possibly attractive—vulnerability.

While Lynley works in London, his former colleagues follow the murder trail south to the New Forest, a beautiful and strange place where outsiders are not entirely welcome. What they don’t know is that more than one dark secret lurks among the trees—and that their investigation will lead them to an outcome that is both tragic and shocking.

A story skillfully structured to keep readers guessing until the very end, This Body of Death is a magnificent achievement from a writer at the peak of her powers.

    San Francisco Chronicle 

  • “Captivating…the writer’s insights into social and emotional issues make her work deeply rewarding.” 

    Seattle Times 

  • “George has once again delivered a thick, knotty, densely plotted mystery. As always, it isn’t a book to tear through in an hour, but one to read slowly, over many sittings, and savor.” 

    Entertainment Weekly 

  • “Richly rewarding…offers an intricate plot that will satisfy even jaded fans of psychological suspense.”

    " ..an extremely good writer, she also has a great understanding of the British class system which is V apparent in the relationship between Inspector Lynley & Sergeant Havers "

    " Another excellent Inspector Lynley book from Elizabeth George. Can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Janette | 1/29/2014

    " This title about sums up the whole deal. It took me about 1/2 way through to start getting it all sorted out in my brain. It is well written as always, which is one reason I like her books. And this one seems quite complicated. I enjoyed reconnecting with some of the regular characters...love Barbara in this one! But now things will change for her. I can't figure out what the author is doing to Lynley....I could scream. Don't like Isabelle AT ALL! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Celeste Livingston | 1/27/2014

    " It was way too long for my little brain. I'm a slow reader so by the time I was done, I couldn't remember how it had started. I've got another book by her that is even longer. I don't think I'll ever try to read that one. But she is a wonderful writer, so if you're a fast reader by all means read it. "
