"The Lynley books constitute the smartest, most gratifyingly complex and impassioned mystery series now being published."-Entertainment Weekly When thirteen-year-old Matthew Whately goes missing from Bredgar Chambers, a prestigious public school in the heart of West Sussex, aristocratic Inspector Thomas Lynley receives a call for help from the lad's housemaster, who also happens to be an old school chum. Thus, the inspector, his partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, and forensic scientist Simon Allcourt-St. James find themselves once again outside their jurisdiction and deeply involved in the search for a child-and then, tragically, for a child killer. Questioning prefects, teachers, and pupils closest to the dead boy, Lynley and Havers sense that something extraordinarily evil is going on behind Bredgar Chambers's cloistered walls. But as they begin to unlock the secrets of this closed society, the investigation into Matthew's death leads them perilously close to their own emotional wounds-and blinds them to the signs of another murder in the making...? Praise for Well-Schooled in Murder "George is a master...?n outstanding practitioner of the modern English mystery."-Chicago Tribune "A spectacular new voice in mystery writing."-Los Angeles Times "A compelling whodunit...? reader's delight."-Daily News, New York "Like P.D. James, George knows the import of the smallest human gesture; Well-Schooled in Murder puts the younger author clearly in the running with the genre master."-People "Ms. George may wind up creating one of the most popular and entertaining series in mystery fiction today."-The Sun, Baltimore
