From the Publisher:

"Satisfying indeed. Novelist Elizabeth George...has another hit on her hands."
--The Washington Post

"A vivid cast of suspects, an appealing team of sleuths...a country-house setting that will put readers in mind of the best of Agatha Christie. For fans of this type of puzzle, Payment in Blood is a must."
--The Plain Dealer, Cleveland

"A spectacular new voice in mystery writing...[George] invites comparison with both P.D. James and Ruth Rendell in the psychological interest of her characters and the intricacy and ingenuity of her plotting."
--Los Angeles Times

"Complex, rich, and accomplished enough to elbow the author between P.D. James and Ruth Rendell."
--Kirkus Reviews

From the Inside Flap:

The career of playwright Joy Sinclair comes to an  abrupt end on an isolated estate in the Scottish  Highlands when someone drives and eighteen-inch  dirk through her neck. Called upon to investigate the  case in a country where they have virtually no authority, aristocratic Detective Inspector Thomas  Lynley and his partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara  Havers, grapple for both a motive and a murderer.  Emotions run deep in this highly charged drama, for  the list of suspects soon includes Britain's  foremost actress, its most successful theatrical  producer, and the woman Lynley loves. He and Havers must  tread carefully through the complicated terrain of  human relationships, while they work to solve a case rooted in the darkest corners of the past and the unexplored regions of the human  heart.
