“George explores her characters' dreams and fears with a penetrating grace that makes reading her books a joy.” — Washington Post Book World

“A rich, unsettling work.” — Richmond Times Dispatch 
“A spellbinding tale of mystery and murder.” — Oklahoman 
“This is the kind of mystery that Elizabeth George does best….Ms. George has done a brilliant job…and this is probably her best mystery in years.” — Washington Times
“Elizabeth George writes exceptional mysteries, with intelligent, complex plots and well-developed characters....Her pace is skillful.” — Daily American (PA) 
“A hauntingly memorable experience.” — New York Journal of Books
“Richly rewarding…offers an intricate plot that will satisfy even jaded fans of psychological suspense.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“George’s dense plotting style and complex characterization are on full display as Lynley and Havers, working separately, try to uncover the truth.” — Romantic Times
“[George’s] Inspector Lynley novels are very substantial psychological thrillers, big, deeply intelligent, rich in characterization...and atmospheric as a walk on the moors with a faithful bloodhound.” — Sullivan County Democrat (NY)
This Body of Death is wonderful.” — San Francisco Chronicle
“Captivating…the writer’s insights into social and emotional issues make her work deeply rewarding.” — Seattle Times
“An intricate mystery.” — Iron Mountain Daily News (MI)

Textul de pe ultima copertă

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George is back with a spellbinding tale of mystery and murder featuring Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley.
On compassionate leave after the murder of his wife, 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, whose management style seems to rub everyone the wrong way. In fact, 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 Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata follow the murder trail south to the New Forest. There they discover a beautiful and strange place where animals roam free, the long-lost art of thatching is very much alive, and 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 multilayered jigsaw puzzle of 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.
