In this book Sgt. Gemma James of New Scoutland Yard is barely adjusting to her new position when she is assigned to a brutal murder of a young, pregnant women. An intriguing mystery with a startling ending.
Lots of candidates for "who done it". Good book.
A very enjoyable book, with a complex plot, excellent characters, and writing that is well above average. Crombie has a definite knack for handling multiple storylines, and manages to keep them all interesting and moving forward without confusing the reader. I don't really need to be reading yet another series, but this one may be too good to pass up.
Deborah Crombie is an excellent storyteller. When you start one of her books, cancel your other plans.
This is a good series for Anglophiles.
This series about Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid are some of my favorites. You can't go wrong with any of them.
Good English murder mystery.
Another excellent book in the continuing series with Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James.
This is one of my favorite series.
and yet another strong entry. this was a very well-written and complicated story. but complicated in a good way. you could easily read it over and over without boredom as there are many characters and she is a master at weaving many threads together and still keeping them well in-hand to the very end when her total tapestry is revealed. The collecting and selling of antiques is also a great and informative backdrop to her story. in each book the developing relationship between kincaid and gemma james makes you want to read each successive installment.
Good writing keeps you involved in the story. Nice twist.
Good but not a cozy mystery.
