I think my favorite of the Lynley books so far. This one is a flashback, to the days before Lynley and Havers are partners, back when Lynley was still engaged to Deborah Cotter. Lynley, Deborah, Lady Helen Clyde, Simon St James, and others, make up a weekend party down to Lynley's ancestral home in Cornwall. It's an awkward party to begin with, since Simon is also in love with Deborah, and Lynley's cocaine-addicted younger brother shows up with his girlfriend, but it rapidly degenerates into a terrible weekend when a local journalist is brutally killed, and members of the party fall under suspicion.
