Mystery & Suspense • 24 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

This is the latest installment in George's immensely popular series featuring Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his subordinate, Detective Sergeant (here demoted to Detective Constable) Barbara Havers. A young man and woman who seem to have no connection with each other have been found murdered on the same patch of a large moor. The young woman's dad is a former cop; when her body is found, he asks for Lynley's help. This is a long (16 tapes) and complex tale. The investigation moves back and forth between London and the scene of the crime. Several plot lines take place simultaneously, each plot with its own largely separate cast of characters. Donada Peters rises well to the challenge without losing the listener. Her pacing is precise, and each of her characters is distinctive. She is particularly strong with accents, even managing to hint at the subtle inflections of an American character who wishes to be thought English.
