    Few crime-fiction authors working today can?claim to write novels as intricately plotted, as?satisfyingly layered and – frankly – as long as?those written by Elizabeth George. In her latest?gripping tome (700-odd pages!) aristocratic?Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his?detective sergeant Barbara Havers investigate?the kidnapping of nine-year-old Hadiyyah and?the subsequent suspicious death of Hadiyyah’s?mother Angelina. The plot moves from London?to Lucca in Italy and involves plenty of the?personal subtext that George is renowned for.?Is Barbara losing her professional judgement??Is Thomas finally recovering from the death?of his wife Helen? Will their professional?partnership last? And does the introduction of?Italian policeman Salvatore Lo Bianco mean?that Barbara is destined to improve her Italian language?skills?

    When Hadiyyah Upman disappears from London in the company of her mother, DS Barbara Havers is as devastated as the girl's father. They are her close friends as well as neighbours, but since the child is with her mother, nothing can be done. Five months later, Hadiyyah is kidnapped from an open air market in Lucca, Italy, and this triggers an investigation in the full glare of the media spotlight. Barbara's clever manipulation of the worst of London's tabloids forces New Scotland Yard to become involved. But rather than Barbara herself, her superior officer DI Thomas Lynley is assigned to handle a situation made delicate by racial issues, language difficulties, and the determination of an Italian magistrate to arrest and convict someone—anyone—for the crime.
