A collection of the first four Inspector Lynley novels: A Great Deliverance, Payment in Blood, Well Schooled in Murder, A Suitable Vengeance
In the very first Inspector Lynley novel, A GREAT DELIVERANCE, Lynley and DS Barbara Havers are sent by Scotland Yard to solve a gruesome murder where they uncover a series of shocking revelations that shatter the façade of the peaceful Yorkshire village.
In PAYMENT IN BLOOD, Inspector Lynley faces the most testing case of his career in an isolated Scottish mansion where a famous playwright is savagely murdered - one of the suspects is Lady Helen Clyde, the woman Lynley loves.
WELL SCHOOLED IN MURDER is set in an old and distinguished public school. The body of a brilliant young pupil is discovered in a country churchyard. Hampered by the code of honour and loyalty that prevail, Inspector Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers discover within the confines of that privileged community a culture of cruelty that stretches back across the generations.
In A SUITABLE VENGEANCE, Inspector Lynley investigation into the brutal murder of a local journalist tears apart powerful ties of love and friendship, shattering the tranquillity of the picturesque Cornish community and exposing a long-buried family secret. Its consequences irrevocably alter the course of Thomas Lynley's life.
