Publisher's Summary

Balford-le-Nez is a dying seatown on the coast of Essex. But when a member of the town's small but growing Asian community is found dead on its beach, his neck broken, sleepy Balford-le-Nez ignites. Working solo without her longtime partner, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, Sergeant Barbara Havers must probe not only the mind of a murderer and a case very close to her own heart, but the terrible price people pay for deceiving others...and themselves.

©1997 Susan Elizabeth George (P)2018 Random House Audio

What the critics say

"One of George's best.... insightful, tense and compassionate." (Entertainment Weekly)

"Deception on His Mind falls smartly into place in [George's] literate, impassioned series, one of today's best." (Chicago Tribune)

"Typically extravagant: long on ambition, long on characterization...it's tough to resist the pull of George's storytelling once hooked." (USA Today)

Adventurous Sidetrip

Wasn't sure about an Elizabeth George without Inspector Lynley - but time spent with Barbara Havers entertains and enthralls.

Having a problem with Elizabeth George

Having a problem with Elizabeth George. She fills her books now with too many detailed side stories that look like she is aware of being paid by the quantity of pages, and her overly detailed side stories are often boring even though she uses the F-word to show how hip she is?....Therefore I'm going to give her books a rest for a bit.

My first Elizabeth George novel but certainly not my last. Great twists and turns and plot twists. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

DS Barbara Havers forever!

This was a great novel for one reason. It was a Barbara Havers exclusive.

She is my favorite character in the series. I was hoping she might get the sack and become a PI in her own series.

Too bad.

My favorite since Missing Joseph.
