In this intricate crime drama by bestselling writer Elizabeth George, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley must discover whether a man’s death was accidental, or intentional.

Inspector Lynley is approached by business magnate Bernard Fairclough to take an informal look into the circumstances of his nephew's demise. The coroner's verdict was accidental death.

Still grieving for his murdered wife, Lynley heads to the beautiful Lake District, with his friends Deborah and Simon St James. When Lynley meets the Fairclough family, he finds many possible motives for murder, and uncovers layers of deceit and betrayal. Barbara Havers, who's back at base, also makes her own unique contribution to the case.
