Award-winning author Elizabeth George gives us an early glimpse into the lives of Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, forensic scientist Simon Allcourt-St. James, and Lady Helen Clyde in a superlative mystery that is also a fascinating inquiry into the crimes of the heart. Lynley, the eighth earl of Asherton, has brought to Howenstow, his family home, the young woman he has asked to be his bride. But the savage murder of a local journalist is the catalyst for a lethal series of events that shatters the calm of a picturesque Cornwall village and embroils Lynley and St. James in a case far outside their jurisdiction—and a little too close to home. When a second death follows closely on the heels of the first, Lynley finds he can't help taking the investigation personally—because the evidence points to a killer within his own family.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quickly Forgotten I very much enjoyed reading the previous Elizabeth George books...only to get to #4 and find myself stumbling. It took me ages to read this book...for the simple reason that i'm not a big fan of an author writing a book within a series for the main reason of going back to explain the history of the main characters. And to me that's all this book really was. Yes, there was murder and mystery involving Inspector Lynley, but most of the book was about the relationships of the characters, wrapping things up to explain why Lynley, Simon, and Deborah are the way they are. I didn't need to know the history in one book. Glad this one is over!
