When Duncan Kincaid's cousin Jack calls from Glastonbury to ask for his help on a rather unusual matter, Duncan welcomes the chance to spend a relaxing weekend outside of London with Gemma--but relaxation isn't on the agenda. Glastonbury is revered as the site of an ancient abbey, the mythical burial place of King Arthur and Guinevere, and a source of strong druid power. Jack has no more than a passing interest in its history--until he comes across an extraordinary chronicle almost a thousand years old. The record reveals something terrible and bloody shattered the abbey's peace long ago--knowledge that will spark violence that reaches into the present. Soon it is up to Duncan and Gemma to find the truth the local police cannot see. But no one envisions the peril that lies ahead--or that there is more at stake than they ever dreamed possible.« less
British series novel that is a cut above the detective genre. If you haven't discovered Deborah Crombie yet, this one is a good candidate (it is not necessary to have read all books in this series to appreciate this one by its own).
besides that she just writes some of the best british mysteries in the genre; this particular entry i specially enjoyed because of its location and the history she includes regarding this very popular tourist spot in england. i didn't know very much about glastonbury tor before reading this. i found myself looking up pictures and more information on the area after reading this. aside from that, i found it to be an especially strong plot and entry in the series.
