Summary
Two detectives, upper-crust Thomas Lynley and working-class Barbara Havers, are sent by Scotland Yard to Yorkshire to investigate a teenager who supposedly killed her father with an axe. The more they investigate the crime, however, the more lies and secrets they uncover about the girl, her father, their family, and the entire village

Summary
Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers is getting a final chance for a promotion. Because of her abrasive personality, she's been unable to work with any of the detectives at Scotland Yard. Assigned to work with Inspector Thomas Lynley, whom she despises because of his privileged upbringing, the two head to Yorkshire to investigate the murder of a man by his daughter. She was found sitting by her decapitated father and would only say "I did it. And I'm not sorry", and she has refused to say another word. The townspeople believe she is innocent, and Lynley and Havers learn to work together as they solve the case. Readers who enjoy leisurely-paced, issue-oriented mysteries may also enjoy books by P.D. James and Martha Grimes. (Description by: Sue O'Brien) --
