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).

A little different from the usual mystery in that it involves the paranormal. A very good mystery.

This has got to be one of Crombie's finest books. Not only has mystery but a touch of the supernatureal. In this one, Kincaid is not the center of a mystery but is involved at the request of his cousin to help on an unusual case in Glastonbury. Glastonbury is revered as the site of an ancient abby with strong druid powers. A great read that is unusual, mysterious and skillfully written. I highly recommend!

Deborah Crombie is a masterful mystery writer, who seamlessly builds characters while she builds the plot. A Finer End is set in Glastonbury in England and Crombie is at her best in creating the atmosphere of the town and the historic Abbey.

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.

This is turning into one of my favorite series. Crombie is a very competent writer who pulls readers into the story with fine descriptions--Glastonbury and its mysterious tor really come alive in this book--and good dialog. She writes terrific people too, with the non-recurring characters almost as well developed as Kincaid and James. This book was a bit hard to get into at first, introducing so many threads, but soon settled down into a solid mystery.

Glastonbury is revered as the site of an ancient abbey and a source of Druid power. When Duncan Kincaid's cousin Jack calls from there to ask for help on a rather unusual matter, Duncan welcomes the chance. He comes across an extraordinary chronicle almost 1000 years old that reveals that something terrible shattered the abbey's peace long ago - knowledge that will spark violence that reaches into the present.
