Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George delivers another masterpiece of suspense in her Inspector Lynley series: a gripping child-in-danger story that tests Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers like never before. <br> <br> Barbara is at a loss: The daughter of her friend Taymullah Azhar has been taken by her mother, and Barbara can't really help--Azhar had never married Angelina, and his name isn't on Hadiyyah's, their daughter's, birth certificate. He has no legal claim. Azhar and Barbara hire a private detective, but the trail goes cold.<br> <br> Azhar is just beginning to accept his soul-crushing loss when Angelina reappears with shocking news: Hadiyyah is missing, kidnapped from an Italian marketplace. The Italian police are investigating, and the Yard won't get involved, until Barbara takes matters into her own hands -- at the risk of her own career. <br> <br> As both Barbara and her partner, Inspector Thomas Lynley, soon discover, the case is far more complex than a typical kidnapping, revealing secrets that could have far-reaching effects outside of the investigation.  With both her job and the life of a little girl on the line, Barbara must decide what matters most, and how far she's willing to go to protect it.

Library Journal Review

The latest entry in George's Inspector Lynley series (after Believing the Lie) takes listeners to Italy when D.S. Barbara Havers's good friend Taymullah Azahar discovers that his girlfriend has disappeared with their daughter, Hadiyyah. Barbara involves herself in the search, hiring a private detective, then calling in Scotland Yard. Inspector Thomas Lynley is dispatched to Italy, where the situation accelerates when the child is apparently abducted. Then Barbara goes rogue, traveling to Lucca to aid Azahar. The Italian characters, especially Chief Inspector Salvatore Lo Bianco, add wit and depth as the complex novel unfolds. Series narrator Davina Porter adeptly changes voices, but the story is marathon in length and will perhaps overwhelm all but the most devoted fans. -VERDICT Only for those dedicated to not missing a single entry in the Inspector Lynley series. ["This is a must for fans of this series. The twists and turns are vintage George and do not disappoint," read the starred review of the Dutton hc, LJ 8/13.]-Sandra C.
