Five tales of human weakness from the masterly pen of Elizabeth George
A collection of short stories from the internationally bestselling author of A Traitor to Memory, In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner, and Deception on his Mind (also available from NEL) and eight further novels featuring Thomas Lynley (available on audio from HodderHeadline).
Three of these stories were originally published under the title The Evidence Exposed. This volume contains two brand new stories, a revised version of The Evidence Exposed, and new introductions by the author to all five stories.
