Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “One of George’s best . . . insightful, tense, and compassionate.”—Entertainment Weekly

Balford-le-Nez is a dying seaside town on the coast of Essex. But when a member of the town’s small but growing Asian community is found murdered near its beach, the sleepy town ignites. Intrigued by the involvement of her London neighbor—Taymullah Azhar—in what appears to be a growing racial conflagration, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers arranges to have herself assigned to the investigation. Setting out on her own, this is one case Havers will have to solve without her longtime partner, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley— and it’s one of the toughest she’s ever encountered. For Havers must probe not only the mind of a murderer and her emotional response to a case unsettlingly close to her own heart, but also the terrible price people pay for deceiving others . . . and themselves.

Deception on His Mind

I find myself coming back to the confrontation between Sergeant Havers and her superior officer which takes pace at the conclusion of this richly plotted book, which is filled with the varied POV’s of multiple characters. Havers believes she has a choice between pressing countercharges in revenge, and going on to solve the murder on her own, which would further weaken Emily Bowen’s case against her. Instead, Barbara Havers chooses the high road, and works with CID Bowen to bring the true culprit to justice. She has saved face for Bowen, who was pursuing the wrong suspect. Will Havers’ faith in taking the high road be rewarded? What are the depths of her former idol’s character flaws?
