Publisher's Summary

Calder Moor is a wild and deadly place: Many have been trapped in the myriad limestone caves, lost in collapsed copper mines, injured on perilous gritstone ridges. But this time, when two bodies are discovered in the shadow of the ancient circle of stones known as Nine Sisters Henge, it is clearly not a case for Mountain Rescue. The corpses are those of a young man and woman. Each met death in a different fashion. Each died violently. 

To Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, brought in to investigate by special request, this grisly crime promises to be one of the toughest assignments of his career. For the unfortunate Nicola Maiden was the daughter of a former officer in an elite undercover unit, a man Lynley once regarded as a mentor. Now, as Lynley struggles to find out if Nicola's killer was an enemy of her father's or one she earned herself, a disgraced Barbara Havers, determined to redeem herself in the eyes of her longtime partner, crisscrosses London seeking information on the second murder victim. 

Yet the more dark secrets Lynley and Havers uncover, the more they learn that neither the victims nor the suspects are who they appear to be. Once again, they come up against the icy realization that human relationships are often murderous...and that the blood that binds can also kill.

Exceptionally told but cautions for content.

The subject matter within this story touches on S&M practices that were a bit difficult to get through, even upsetting. The story, as is typical of this author, was exceptional in its style and plot. The narrator was brilliant and a joy to listen to.

Not my favorite

I love these books and the narrator. But Linley went a bit too far and I am not sure I forgive him. This story also was a bit convoluted and I sometimes had trouble keeping the story lines in order. But I think these stories are among the best.

Amazing and so glad finally on audible

Don’t let the lack of book cover image fool you. This book is excellent. Such a great part of a great series. Characters are well developed and story is seamless. Elizabeth George is brilliant. I highly recommend the book just before this one, to fully grasp the dynamics between Lynley, Havers, and Havers’ neighbors.

Bad narration

I couldn’t listen to the book for more than one chapter. Terrible narrator who spoke far too quickly and with a very high pitch and with what aalso sounded like very old squeaky vocal cords
