Mystery Police Procedural
Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and Detective Inspector
Thomas Lynley are forced to confront the past as they try to
solve a crime that threatens to tear apart the very fabric
of a quiet, historic medieval town in England
The cozy, bucolic town of Ludlow is stunned when one of its
most revered and respected citizens--Ian Druitt, the local
deacon--is accused of a serious crime. Then, while in police
custody, Ian is found dead. Did he kill himself? Or was he
When Barbara Havers is sent to Ludlow to investigate the
chain of events that led to Ian's death, all the evidence
points to suicide. But Barbara can't shake the feeling that
she's missing something. She decides to take a closer look
at the seemingly ordinary inhabitants of Ludlow--mainly
elderly retirees and college students--and discovers that
almost everyone in town has something to hide.
A masterful work of suspense, The Punishment She
Deserves sets Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and
Inspector Thomas Lynley against one of their most intricate
cases. Fans of the longtime series will love the many
characters from Elizabeth George's previous novels who join
Lynley and Havers, and readers new to the series will
quickly see why she is one of the most popular and
critically acclaimed writers of our time. Both a page-turner
and a deeply complex story about the lies we tell, the lies
we believe, and the redemption we need, this novel will be
remembered as one of George's best.
