Product description

Balford-le-Nez is a dying seatown on the coast of Essex. But when a member of the town's small but growing Asian community, a Pakistani named Haytham Querashi, is found dead near its beach, his neck broken, sleepy Balford-le-Nez ignites. And working solo, without her long-time partner Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, Sergeant Barbara Havers must probe not only the mind of a murderer and a case very close to her own heart, but the terrible price people pay for deceiving others...and themselves.

Review quote

"One of George's best... insightful, tense and compassionate."--"Entertainment Weekly""Deception on His Mind falls smartly into place in [George's] literate, impassioned series, one of today's best."--"Chicago Tribune""Typically extravagant: long on ambition, long on characterization...it's tough to resist the pull of George's storytelling once hooked."--"USA Today""So much fun to read, it's criminal."--"Newsday"
