If you love good mysteries, you'll enjoy the next one in the Inspector Lynley series. In Payment in Blood, Lynley and Havers were sent to Scotland, when a young playwright was found murdered on a cold winter day. It was up to Lynley and Havers to find out why, when they talked to everyone in the theater company. When someone else got killed, it made them dig further into the background of family secrets, lies, betrayal, and a cold case. For Lynley, he had a hint of jealousy to his lady love, Lady Helen Clyde. As they got closer to the truth, they closed in further to the suspicions of one or two narrowed suspects, right before someone got assaulted. Now it was a game of whodunit, right until the final end. What a rush!
This was another fascinating Elizabeth George British mystery. I continued to love Scotland Yard and all of the United Kingdom for the settings. I believe Havers and Lynley were an incredible and impeccable crime-solving team. I liked the backdrop of the play, when everyone played a part into this crime in not so many acts. You could really imagine yourself there, when everything happened at once. Plenty of crime-solving action, lots of drama, and a great mystery that's filled with intrigue and suspense.
