"When Eugenie Davies is killed by a driver on a quiet
London street, her death is clearly no accident. Someone
struck her with a car and then deliberately ran over her
body before driving off, leaving nothing behind but
questions. What brought Eugenie Davies to London on a
rainy autumn night? Why was she carrying the name of the
man who found her body? Who among the many acquaintances
in her complicated and tragic life could have wanted her
dead? And could her murder have some connection to a
twenty-eight-year-old musical wunderkind, a virtuoso
violinist who several months earlier suddenly and
inexplicably lost the ability to play a single note?" "For
Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, whose own domestic life
is about to change radically, these questions are only the
first in an investigation that leads him to walk a fine
line between personal loyalty and professional honor.
Assigned to the case by his superior, Superintendent
Malcolm Webberly, Lynley learns that Webberly's first
murder investigation as a DI over twenty years ago
involved Eugenie Davies and a sensational criminal trial.
Yet what is truly damaging is what Webberly already knows
and no doubt wants Lynley to keep concealed." "Now the
pressure is on Lynley to find Eugenie Davies' killer. For
not only is he putting his own career into jeopardy, but
he is also attempting to safeguard the careers of his
longtime partners Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata.
Together, they must untangle the dark secrets and darker
passions of a family whose history conceals the truth
behind a horrific crime."
