Hoping to avoid charges of institutionalized racism in its failure to pursue the earlier crimes to their conclusion, New Scotland Yard hands the case over to Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his colleagues. The killer is a psychopath who does not intend to be stopped." Mesmerizing action and psychological intrigue prove that Elizabeth George is a "master of the English mystery."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
