When an elderly woman is deliberately run down and killed on a quiet London street, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley must discover why. It is an investigation that will lead him to walk a fine line between personal loyalty and professional honor. What brought Eugenie Davies to London on a rainy autumn night? Why was she carrying the name of the man who found her body? Could her murder have some connection to a 28-year-old musical wunderkind, a virtuoso violinist whose talents have been internationally renowned since he was ten? To answer these questions Lynley will put his career in jeopardy even as he tries to safeguard those of his longtime partners Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata. Together, they must untangle the dark secrets and darker passions of a family whose history conceals the truth behind a horrific crime.

The best Elizabeth George and the only one I could complete.

I've usually enjoyed reading other Lynley novels by Elizabeth George, but I didn't enjoy this one. I thought that the murders might make sense at the end of the book, but the reasons given just weren't believable. Sorry I wasted so much time on it.

I like this author very much but not this effort--it uses a frustrating, redundant literary device. For me, it flopped.
