Elizabeth George first claimed a spot on the New York Times bestseller list in 1994. Two decades later her Lynley novels are still at the top of national bestseller lists, proving how vast and loyal her audience is. Critics and fans alike cherish Inspector Lynley, eighth Earl of Asherton, and Sergeant Havers, his working-class partner, for their believably irascible relationship as much as for their uncanny ability to solve the most challenging cases. And in her twentieth Inspector Lynley novel, A Banquet of Consequences, George delivers another winner as Lynley and Havers are drawn from Cambridge to London to the windswept town of Shaftesbury during one of their most complex cases yet: the murder of a feminist writer and speaker.

"John Lee's narration and portrayals of the Scotland Yard trio Thomas Lynley, Barbara Havers, and Winston Nkata perfectly exploit their diverse social status and complementary investigative techniques--from Nkata's keyboard wizardry and Havers's elbow-in-the-window style to Lynley's aristocratic, seductive charm and keen intellect. Far more challenging in this twisted psychological thriller is maintaining suspense while family secrets cloak the truth behind a suicide and a murder. Lee vividly enacts the anguish of a young man's Tourette syndrome, his brother's grief and bewilderment, and the evolving evil nature of a supposedly loving mother. Sparks of humor highlight this dark story. Lee delights in sharing Inspector Lynley's infatuation with a zoo vet whose hobby is roller derby, and Havers is lured into a makeover--with little success.
