9780062087560: Careless in Red

It is barely three months since the murder of his wife and Thomas Lynley takes to the South-West Coast Path in Cornwall, determined to walk its length in an attempt to distract himself from his loss. On the forty-third day of this walk, he sees a cliff climber fall to his death a death apparently witnessed by a surfer in a nearby cove. Shortly afterwards, Lynley encounters a young woman from Bristol whose personal history is a blank before her thirteenth year. These events propel him into a case that brings Barbara Havers from London and thrusts both detectives into a world where revenge is only one of the motives they must sift through to identify a killer.

Product Description:

Grief-stricken in the aftermath of his wife's murder, Thomas Lynley cannot imagine how life will go on. He has left his job, his home, and all reminders of her behind him in London.

Walking the cliffs of Cornwall, the last thing he expects to find is a body. At first sight, the young man seems to have died in a climbing accident. Tragic, but all too common in a place where nature is at its wildest, and the pathways are dotted with memorials.

But Lynley cannot deny his instincts, and soon, against his every intention, he finds himself drawn into a murder inquiry. This time, as a potential suspect ...

Review:

George is one of the best crime novelists around - there's a richness and psychological depth to her work which lifts it well above genre fluff. ( Time Out)

Her account of surfers' lives, with their terrifying techniques and almost religious passion is worth reading. ( Jessica Mann, Literary Review)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 190 x 106 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. He found the body on the forty-third day of his walk . . . Devastated by the senseless murder of his wife, Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley retreated to Cornwall, where he has spent six solitary weeks hiking the bleak and rugged coastline. But no matter how far he walks, the painful memories do not diminish.Then, at the base of a cliff near a town better known for its surfing than its intrigue, Lynley discovers the body of a young man who has fallen to his death. First a witness, then a suspect when the hand of a killer is revealed, Lynley remains, above all, a policeman willing to aid the gruff head of an understaffed local constabulary in her investigation. But the secrets in this community run dark and deep and Lynley must somehow find a way to let go of the past long enough to solve a most devious and dreadful crime.
