A Great Deliverance by Elizabeth George
Roberta Teys has been found in her best dress, axe in her lap in an old stone barn beside her father’s headless corpse. Her first and last words were: “I did it. And I’m not sorry.” Scotland Yard Inspector Thomas Lynley and his colleague, the redoubtable Sergeant Barbara Havers , take on the case in a pastoral Yorkshire Village. Elizabeth George’s first Lynley mystery won an Anthony Award for best first novel.
