Just One Evil Act

#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. 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. 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. 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.

  • "When Hadiyyah Upman disappears from London in the company of her mother, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers is as devastated as the girl's father. They are her close friends as well as neighbours, but since the child is with her mother, nothing can be done. Five months later, Hadiyyah is kidnapped from an open air market in Lucca, Italy, and this triggers an investigation in the full glare of the media spotlight. Barbara's clever manipulation of the worst of London's tabloids forces New Scotland Yard to become involved. But rather than Barbara herself, her superior officer DI Thomas Lynley is assigned to handle a situation made delicate by racial issues, language difficulties, and the determination of an Italian magistrate to arrest and convict someone - anyone - for the crime."@en

  • "Barbara Havers und Inspector Lynley vor ihrer grössten menschlichen Herausforderung. Barbara Havers macht sich grosse Sorgen um ihren Freund Taymullah Azhar. Denn nachdem ihn seine Freundin Angelina aus heiterem Himmel verlassen und auch die gemeinsame Tochter mitgenommen hat, ist er völlig verzweifelt. Erst nach Wochen bangen Wartens steht Angelina plötzlich wieder vor Azhars Tür, allerdings ohne die kleine Hadiyyah, denn die ist in Italien, wohin sich Angelina abgesetzt hatte, spurlos verschwunden. Als der Fall des vermissten Mädchens auch in der britischen Presse Schlagzeilen auslöst, muss die Polizei reagieren - und Inspector Lynley reist in die Toskana, um die Ermittlungen in dem kleinen Ort Lucca zu begleiten. Doch alsbald gerät Azhar selbst in den Verdacht, in die Entführung des Kindes verwickelt zu sein. Barbara ist fassungslos und kämpft mit allen Mitteln darum, die Unschuld ihres Freundes zu beweisen. Bis sie einen Schritt zu weit geht... Akribische Recherche, präziser Spannungsaufbau und höchste psychologische Raffinesse zeichnen die Bücher der Amerikanerin Elizabeth George aus. Ihre Fälle sind stets detailgenaue Porträts unserer Zeit und Gesellschaft. Elizabeth George, die lange an der Universität "Creative Writing" lehrte, lebt heute auf Whidbey Island im Bundesstaat Washington, USA.
