** spoiler alert ** This novel was a fun and enjoyable read: a little bit of gore, a good bit of suspense, and a whole lot of mystery.

This is the first Lynley series I've ever read...and I find it hilarious that I just watched theInspector Lynley BBC series for the second time and Lynley's wife gets shot and killed, which definitely sets a damper on my spirits. And then I read this book and his wife gets shot while she's pregnant, and consequently she's brain dead and Lynley has to pull to plug on both his wife and unborn child because the doctors say there's nothing they can do. DEPRESSING! I stayed up until 3 am reading the ending and I was in tears. :-(

And as a last note, Barbara Havers is kick-ass! Yay for awesome female characters!

Caitie Barbara Havers is a pretty excellent character. Definitely my favorite in the Lynley series, although I rather like Simon too.
