This book has gotten mixed reviews, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I started it. Elizabeth George's more recent books have been long, and this one is no exception, at over 600 pages. So with that in mind, I was a little ambivalent at first. As usual, there are a lot of characters, and lots of different stories going on. But this one was just as good as the others (except for 'What Came Before He Shot Her'-which I DID NOT like) The characters are complex and well thought out. And while there a re several story lines, they are not that complex that you can't follow them. I especially like DS Barbara Havers-Lynley's partner. She has evolved so much from the beginning. If you are a Elizabeth George fan, you won't be disappointed with this one.

You are wasting your time----read the reviews on Amazon! After only 50 pages (and this book is 600 pages) it is just boring, the characters are not likable in any way, more than half the book is probably just descriptions and I hate a book like that! No desire to seek any more books by her.

Classic Elizabeth George! Familiar characters with some interesting twists and changes. Great sense of place, vivid descriptions. Continuing character development. I found myself irritated with Tommy's infatuation with his boss. Wanted to smack him a bit. :) That was the only thing that brought my rating down but I enjoyed every bit of it.
