To Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, brought in to investigate by special request, this grisly crime promises to be one of the toughest assignments of his career. It affects their perceptions and their educated skill set. Class defines both characters. In the Presence of the Enemy is a brilliantly insightful and haunting novel of ideals corrupted by self-interest, of the sins of parents visited upon children, and of the masks that hide people from each other—and from themselves. To any reader who is thrilled by good writing along with a fun mystery, Elizabeth George is a crackerjack writer of literary talent.

James for help. The more dark secrets Lynley and Havers uncover, the more they learn that neither the victims nor the suspects are exactly who they appear to be. And no one in the area has ever seen him before his body is found on the moor. The author tried to give reasons as to why Nicola's personality became so deviant i. But this time, when two bodies are discovered in the shadow of the ancient circle of stones known as Nine Sisters Henge, it is clearly not a case for Mountain Rescue. Yet the more dark secrets Lynley and Havers uncover, the more they learn that neither the victims nor the suspects are who they appear to be.

Meanwhile, his partner Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, working part of the investigation on her own and hoping to make the coup of her career, may be drawing closer to a grim solution—and to danger—than anyone knows. Knowing that her political future hangs in the balance, Eve Bowen refuses to let Luxford damage her career by printing the story or calling the police. So the editor turns to forensic scientist Simon St. Then tragedy occurs and New Scotland Yard becomes involved.
