This Body of Death
"Elizabeth George reigns as queen of the mystery genre. The Lynley books constitute the smartest, most gratifyingly complex and impassioned mystery series now being published." --Entertainment Weekly One of the most acclaimed entries in Elizabeth George''s New York Times bestselling Inspector Lynley series--a masterfully structured, multilayered jigsaw puzzle of a mystery rich with intrigue and atmosphere On compassionate leave after the murder of his wife, Thomas Lynley is called back to Scotland Yard when the body of a woman is found stabbed and abandoned in an isolated London cemetery. His former team welcomes his return; they don''t trust their new department chief, Isabelle Ardery, whose off-putting manner leaves them on edge. Lynley may be the sole person who can see beneath his superior officer''s hard-as-nails exterior to a hidden--and compelling--vulnerability. While Lynley works in London, his former colleagues Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata follow the murder trail south to the New Forest--a beautiful and strange place where animals roam free, the long-lost art of thatching is very much alive, and outsiders are suspect. What they don''t know is that more than one dark secret lurks within the secluded woodlands, and that their investigation will lead them to an outcome that is both tragic and shocking.

What Came Before He Shot Her
#1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George delivers an explosive, "absolutely riveting" novel (Entertainment Weekly) that delves into the events leading up to the shocking murder of Inspector Lynley''s wife. The brutal, inexplicable death of Inspector Thomas Lynley''s wife, Helen, has left Scotland Yard shocked and searching for answers. Even more horrifying is that the trigger was apparently pulled by a twelve-year-old boy. That story begins on the other side of London in rough North Kensington, where the three, mixed-race, virtually orphaned Campbell children are bounced first from their grandmother to their aunt. The oldest, fifteen-year-old Ness, is headed for trouble as fast as her high-heeled boots will take her. That leaves the middle child, Joel, to care for the youngest, Toby. No one wants to put it into words, but something clearly isn''t right with Toby. Before long, there are signs that Joel himself has problems. A local gang starts harassing him and threatening his brother. To protect his family, Joel ends up making a pact with the devil--a move that leads straight to the front doorstep of Thomas Lynley. The anatomy of a murder, the story of a family in crisis, What Came Before He Shot Her is a powerful and emotional novel, full of deep psychological insights, that only the incomparable Elizabeth George could write.

Can we know God''s will regarding healing? How did Jesus pray for healing? What did He instruct His followers concerning healing? What about my own physical needs... how should I pray in regard to my own need for healing?

This Bible study is a bit longer than some, but please don''t let that keep you from choosing this study.... The topic of healing is too important NOT to explore thoroughly! Your health and the health of your loved ones may significantly benefit from your time here in the weeks ahead. If you must miss a lesson, please go back and complete it since each chapter topic is crucial to having a more complete understanding of Biblical healing. May the Lord Jesus Christ receive much glory as He is recognized as being the Purchaser of our healing and "The LORD, who heals us!"
