Inspector Lynley No. XVI. While Lynley is still on compassionate leave after the murder of his wife, Isabelle Ardery is brought into the Met as his temporary replacement. The discovery of a body in a Stoke Newington cemetery offers Isabelle the chance to make her mark with a high profile murder investigation. Persuading Lynley back to work seems the best way to guarantee a result: Lynley’s team is fiercely loyal to him and Isabelle needs them all – especially Barbara Havers – on side. The Met is twitchy: a series of PR disasters has undermined its confidence. Isabelle knows that she’ll be operating under the unforgiving scrutiny of the media and she’s quick – perhaps too quick – to pin the murder on a convenient suspect. The murder trail leads Lynley and Havers to the New Forest, and the eventual resolution of a case with roots in a long-ago act of violence that has poisoned subsequent generations to create a tragic and shocking outcome.
