Summary, etc.: In this gripping child-in-danger story, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and her partner, Inspector Thomas Lynley, investigate the kidnapping of a friend's little girl from an Italian marketplace. With both her job and the life of a little girl on the line, Barbara must decide what matters most, and how far she's willing to go to protect it.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 September #1
    As her devoted readers know, George's D.I. Lynley procedurals are more about characters than crime. This entry is certainly no different, but, unlike the most recent books, which center on a distraught Lynley, recovering from his wife's murder, the focus is on Lynley's partner (and polar opposite), D.S. Barbara Havers. It begins when Taymullah Azhar, Barbara's neighbor, asks for help in finding his beloved daughter, Hadiyyah, with whom his wife has absconded. So begins a sprawling investigation that careens from England to Italy and back again, as cops in both countries investigate child abduction and murder, ending with Azhar looking very like a killer. Through it all, volatile, unkempt, vulnerable Barbara is so invested in Azhar that she loses sight of everything and everyone else. Unfortunately, her stubborn loyalty does not come across as entirely rational this time, but readers who've grown attached to the obstinate, outspoken cop over the course of the series will surely forgive her for being blinded by affection. The tale is both overlong and occasionally overwrought, but series fans will not be inclined to put it down unfinished. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Not among the best in George's long-running and consistently popular series, but still certain to draw many requests among public-library readers.
