Product Overview

Devastated by the senseless murder of his wife, Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley retreated to Cornwall, where he has spent six solitary weeks hiking the bleak and rugged coastline. But no matter how far he walks, the painful memories do not diminish. Then, at the base of a cliff near a town better known for its surfing than its intrigue, Lynley discovers the body of a young man who has fallen to his death. First a witness, then a suspect when the hand of a killer is revealed, Lynley remains, above all, a policeman willing to aid the gruff head of an understaffed local constabulary in her investigation. But the secrets in this community run dark and deepand Lynley must somehow find a way to let go of the past long enough to solve a most devious and dreadful crime.

Author Info
Elizabeth George
Born in Warren, Ohio, Elizabeth George graduated from the University of California at Riverside with a B.A. in English. Having received a master's degree in counseling from the California State University at Fullerton, George went on to teach in high schools, and then in colleges after her first book, "A Great Deliverance", was published in 1988. Though born and raised in America, she is best known for the mysteries she sets in England. Her novels featuring Inspector Thomas Lynley and Sergeant Barbara Havers follow the classic form of the British cozy mystery, updated with a broader depiction of violence and a deeper concern with her characters' emotional maturation. Tracing her investigators' lives from one novel to the next, George writes patiently, carefully crafting the inner motivations of both her criminals and her investigators. Her heroes often suffer from a physical disability or deformity, a metaphor for their psychological and emotional wounds.
