Synopsis

"The story begins with my father, actually, and the fact that I'm the one who's answerable for his death.  It was not my first crime, as you will see, but it is the one my mother couldn't forgive."

In her astonishing New York Times bestseller, acclaimed author Elizabeth George reveals the even darker truth behind this startling confession. Playing for the Ashes is a rich tale of passion, murder and love in which Inspector Thomas Lynley and Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers once again
find themselves embroiled in a case where nothing--and no one--is really what it seems.  Intense, suspenseful and brilliantly written, Playing for the
Ashes
will make readers "search out the sleuthing pair's first six adventures...a treasure," as Cosmopolitan predicted in their review.


From the Paperback edition.
