reviewed on + 402 more book reviews


The first in her long series featuring Scotland Yard's Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James, and it's an English country house murder. Except the country house is a timeshare, and someone's murdered the assistant manager. Kincaid is supposed to be there on vacation but can't help getting involved when the local police look like doing an incompetent job. Anyone could have done it, and so the investigation begins. It's been a very long time since I read this first, so it was fun to go back and see how Crombie started her characters. The suspects are a bit stereotyped, and so is Kincaid, but it's still a good read.
