Hailed as the "king of sleaze," tabloid editor Dennis Luxford is used to ferreting out the sins and scandals of people in exposed positions. But when he opens an innocuous-looking letter addressed to him at The Source, he discovers that someone else excels at ferreting out secrets as well. Ten-year-old Charlotte Bowen has been abducted, and if Luxford does not admit publicly to having fathered her, she will die. But Charlotte's existence is Luxford's most fiercely guarded secret, and acknowledging her as his child will throw more than one life and career into chaos. Luxford knows that the story of Charlotte's paternity could make him a laughingstock and reveal to his beautiful wife and son the lie he's lived for a decade. Yet it's not only Luxford's reputation that's on the line: it's also the reputation -- and career -- of Charlotte Bowen's mother. For she is Undersecretary of State for the Home Office, one of the most high-profile Junior Ministers and quite possibly the next Margaret Thatcher. Knowing that her political future hangs in the balance, Eve Bowen refuses to let Luxford damage her career by printing the story or calling the police. So the editor turns to forensic scientist Simon St. James for help. It's a case that fills St. James with disquiet, however, for none of the players in the drama seem to react the way one would expect. Then tragedy occurs and New Scotland Yard becomes involved. Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley soon discovers that the case sends tentacles from London into the countryside, and he must simultaneously outfox death as he probes Charlotte Bowen's mysterious disappearance. Meanwhile, his partner Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, working part of the investigation on her own and hoping to make the coup of her career, may be drawing closer to a grim solution -- and to danger -- than anyone knows.… (lisätietoja)

Not too much to say except how much I loved this one. George focuses not on Lynley in this one, but also Havers for a good portion. We have a shocking crime and a reveal that I didn't see coming. There is some poor Deborah stuff going on, but it's not all encompassing like it has been in the last few books.

"In the Presence of the Enemy" follows a tabloid journalist (Dennis Luxford) who is told that unless he prints the truth about his first born on the front page of his newspaper, then he is going to be made to pay. What follows is a long winding road that eventually ensnares St. James, Deborah, and Lady Helen. They are asked to look into a kidnapping, but are told no police are to be told. Due to the fact that Luxford's first born is a ten year old girl named Charlotte Bowen who is a result of an affair he had with a conservative MP named Eve Bowen 11 years earlier. Unfortunately tragedy occurs which is how New Scotland Yard gets called in which is how Lynley and Havers become involved in the case. George deftly manages to juggle multiple POVs. I have to say that Havers POV's ended up being really great and I loved the juxtaposition between her and Lynley.

The development of Lynley and Haver's friendship and working relationship is still a highlight in this series. We still have Lynley pressing upon Lady Helen about marriage and this case throws things into a tailspin.

The writing was very good and each character's sections felt very distinct I thought. The flow was a bit uneven at first which I happen to notice in George's works. She takes a bit too long to set the stage.

The ending of the book was a huge surprise. We also have Havers showing us what's she's made of. I thought the ending was lovely though and smiled. ( )

Anche se l'ispettore Lynley entra in scena dopo più di 200 pagine e lascia molto più spazio agli altri abituali comprimari delle sue investigazioni, la trama è avvincente, più simile al giallo classico e con meno dialoghi stile Harmony che spesso affioravano in precedenti romanzi.
Cinque stelle! ( )

initially, this one was totally odd because close to 200 pages is taken up with what, in previous instalments of the series, is usually handled much more quickly. so while that first bit was interesting, it did feel like it dragged on a bit too long before finally getting into the thick of it. as with book #7, this one is a bit meander-y too, with tentacles going off in a few directions, but george pulls it all together in a satisfying way. george's style is so propulsive that, even while totally sick, plowing through a nearly 600-page novel in one day was possible. george is a clever and engaging writer.
