Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Based on Elizabeth George's bestselling novels, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries feature Nathaniel Parker (Far from the Madding Crowd) as Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, eighth Earl of Asherton, and Sharon Small (About a Boy) as Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers. Although they're partners, there's a strong sense of class conflict between the two cops: Lynley is a member of a rich and prominent family, while Havers hails from the lower rungs of the working-class ladder. The duo's social differences and occasional disagreements afford the tales an undercurrent that makes the series especially compelling. This collection contains the four episodes that ran during the series' second season in 2003. In "Playing for Ashes," the body of a popular cricket star is found in a burned house, and exploring his romantic entanglements for clues proves a challenge for Lynley and Havers. "In the Presence of the Enemy" finds the two investigators facing blackmail and deception in a case of a conspiracy surrounding a member of Parliament. Lynley returns to his ancestral home in Cornwall to celebrate his engagement in "A Suitable Vengeance" but finds himself embroiled in a murder on his family's estate. And finally, in "Deception on His Mind" Havers must take on the case of a murdered Asian man found on a beach, while Lynley honeymoons in Peru with his new wife, Helen (Lesley Vickerage).

I was fortunate enough to be able to catch this series on public television's Masterpiece Theatre. Each one is excellent. I was afraid to leave my seat in fear that I would miss something. If you love Poirot, Midsomer Murders or CSI, then you will love this series. The DVD set is a must if you are a true lover of mysteries.
