Novelist Elizabeth George has done it again — her upcoming title, Just One Evil Act, is getting rave reviews from the critics and leaving readers counting down the days for its release. Evil Act is the 18th in George's Inspector Lynley series. This time the action centers on a Lynley cohort, Det. Sgt. Barbara Havers. When the daughter of a friend is kidnapped in another country, Havers takes over the investigation — against the wishes of her boss. With her job on the line and the little girl still not found, Havers can't afford to give up the hunt.
