In the Presence of the Enemy


Product Description
Product Details


An MP's young daughter is abducted in a bestselling mystery that PW predicted will "live with the reader long after the last page is turned." (June)

In this latest novel from the author of Playing for the Ashes (Bantam, 1994), the kidnapping of a child wreaks havoc on the lives of her mother, a conservative British MP, and the child's secret father, the left-wing editor of an anti-Tory tabloid.Though the novel starts slowly, it is nevertheless riveting, and much of the action focuses on detective Barbara Havers, second to Scotland Yard's holier-than-thou-inspector Thomas Lynley, the series star. The denouement is rather abrupt and the motive mixup ludicrous, but George is still one of the best mystery writers around.
