A twisted killer is dispatching young boys in London, and Inspector Lynley, his partner, Barbara Havers, and Detective Winston Nkata must find him fast. Attention centers on a teen rehab facility frequented by most of the victims. Along with glimpses into the killer's mind, we get scenes from the private lives of the law officers. Lynley and his adored wife, Helen, are expecting a baby. The music that opens and closes each disc signals evil doings ahead while Charles Keating's spot-on narration sees us through. He brings to life George's continuing characters, as well as the bit players who represent London's multicultural residents. The abridgment makes sense, but the ending will bring Lynley fans up short. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
