New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George is back with a spellbinding tale of mystery and murder featuring Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley.
On compassionate leave after the murder of his wife, Thomas Lynley is called back to Scotland Yard when the body of a woman is found stabbed and abandoned in an isolated London cemetery. His former team doesn't trust the leadership of their new department chief, Isabelle Ardery, whose management style seems to rub everyone the wrong way. In fact, Lynley may be the sole person who can see beneath his superior officer's hard-as-nails exterior to a hidden—and possibly attractive—vulnerability.
While Lynley works in London, his former colleagues Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata follow the murder trail south to the New Forest. There they discover a beautiful and strange place where animals roam free, the long-lost art of thatching is very much alive, and outsiders are not entirely welcome. What they don't know is that more than one dark secret lurks among the trees, and that their investigation will lead them to an outcome that is both tragic and shocking.
A multilayered jigsaw puzzle of a story skillfully structured to keep readers guessing until the very end, This Body of Death is a magnificent achievement from a writer at the peak of her powers.

As the complexity of this mystery unfolds, the subtle and nuanced quality of John Lee's narration becomes more and more apparent. The body of a young woman is found stabbed and abandoned in an isolated London cemetery, but her roots lead to a unique nature and pony preserve in New Forest. While Lynley and the investigating team grapple with Acting Superintendent Ardrey, plot details with far-reaching consequences are revealed. Just when one thinks the elusive solution is within sight, more dark secrets and surprises cloud the knotty clues--but not Lee's admirable pacing, sustained through the lengthy work. He performs the women's voices particularly well and captivates with subtle foreign accents. His talent ranges throughout the diverse British, and even London, regional accents.
