Careless in Red (2008) which I just finished, finds Thomas Lynley depressed into a near catatonic state and hiking in Cornwall after the murder of his wife. After weeks of walking, Lynley finds the body of a young man, apparently the victim of a rock-climbing accident. The local police ask for Lynley's help investigating the case which appears to be murder. The hard-boiled local police chief Bea Hannaford is as tough and plain-spoken as Barbara Havers who later comes down from London to help with the investigation. The team of Havers and Hannaford is a brilliant pairing of hard-working police women who don't quite fit the feminine role expected of them. Both cynical and blunt, their detecting styles work perfectly together.
*I found this charcoal pencil drawing in one of my old sketchbooks. I wish I could say I drew this while hiking in Cornwall. Maybe someday, but for now, this is what I think it would look like on a dark day with the fog creeping across the cliffs.
