This Body of Death by Elizabeth George.. One of the smartest mystery writers going – whose brilliant writing on all things English is reason enough to pick up her latest – delivers her best in years. That is, if gruesome is your cup of tea.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Time was when a mystery novel provided an intriguing whodunit and two or three hours of escapist pleasure. For those so inclined, such books still proliferate. But for readers who crave more heft, writers such as the talented Elizabeth George provide literal and literary weight. "This Body of Death," the 16th installment in her series featuring aristocratic Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley of New Scotland Yard, is no exception, as George spins a captivating story in which the past victimizes the guilty and the innocent alike.."

The Richmond Times Dispatch

"Bestseller George's richly rewarding 16th novel to feature Det. Insp. Thomas Lynley (after Careless in Red) offers an intricate plot that will satisfy even jaded fans of psychological suspense.."
