Another very good police procedural with two separate woven together plots, betrayal, murder, rapes and the usual twists and turns that keeps the reader guessing. Kincaid and James need to examine various suspects including the ex-husband, the rowing coach, the lover and a deputy police commissioner. This is a typical Crombie character driven novel as we see further development of James and Kincaid in their personal lives and the Cullen -Talbot evolving relationship. These are welcome additions to the novel which gives it added depth.
A very good entertaining and well written novel and definitely recommended.
"Crombie keeps this series on its toes with her smooth procedural techniques and engagingly eccentric characters."
--New York Times Book Review
As the mother of 2 rowers, I found the setting most interesting and the terminologies very precise. I love all of Crombie's Kincaid/Jones books and her writing has improved with each successive book. I'm surprised no BBC bright star hasn't latched onto these to make a tv series of these books because, if done well, they would be a huge hit (provided the tv series stuck literally to the books)
This series is always a solid read. You don't have to read them in order to enjoy the mysteries but you'll get so much more out of it if you know the back stories of all the returning characters as their lives continue to change & evolve.
I love this series!! Kincaid and Jones make a great couple I like their thinking processes.
To me, this is one of the best of the series; one reason is that I particularly like the setting. It was well plotted and the subplots didn't get in the way of the main story. All in all an enjoyaboe read.
Another great book in the Ducan Kincaid, Gemma James series! I highly recommend the series.
This is an excellent series, but one that needs to be read in order to understand the changes in relationships.
