NOVEL - THIS BODY OF DEATH
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
A multi-layered 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.
"Bestseller George's richly
rewarding 16th novel to feature Det. Insp. Thomas Lynley (after
Careless in Red) offers an intricate plot that will satisfy even
jaded fans of psychological suspense."
