If you're a fan of Inspector Lynley, you will definitely find this a good book. A bit wordy ( although I didn't notice any overuse of the 'f' word ) A good story about ideals corrupted by self-interest and about the sins of parents visited upon their children.

This book has too much garbage and I would not recommend this book due to the "f" word and the taking of the Lord's name in vain continually. Also the sexual content is very graphic and crude. This is not entertaining and detracts from the plot.
