Because I have enough book wishes I decided to join this meme.
Inspector Thomas Lynley is mystified when he’s sent undercover to investigate the death of Ian Cresswell at the request of the man’s uncle, the wealthy and influential Bernard Fairclough. The death has been ruled an accidental drowning, and nothing on the surface indicates otherwise. But when Lynley enlists the help of his friends Simon and Deborah St. James, the trio’s digging soon reveals that the Fairclough clan is awash in secrets, lies, and motives.
Deborah’s investigation of the prime suspect-Bernard’s prodigal son Nicholas, a recovering drug addict-leads her to Nicholas’s wife, a woman with whom she feels a kinship, a woman as fiercely protective as she is beautiful. Lynley and Simon delve for information from the rest of the family, including the victim’s bitter ex-wife and the man he left her for, and Bernard himself. As the investigation escalates, the Fairclough family’s veneer cracks, with deception and self-delusion threatening to destroy everyone from the Fairclough patriarch to Tim, the troubled son Ian left behind
I am a huge Thomas Lynley fan. I got all the books written by Elizabeth George and have read them multiple times. This is my go to series when I am not sure what to read anymore or if I do not enjoy it as thoroughly as I want and can.
Though this book has been released for earlier this year I did not get it yet. First of all because I want the Dutch version which was released a few weeks later but second and most important people know I want this book and usually I get these for Christmas or my birthday. My birthday will be soon so I will have my hands on this book in a couple of weeks and am really looking forward to it.
