And now for a great Fall read, that comes out this month!
In the tradition of Elizabeth George, Louise Penny, and P. D. James, New York Times bestselling author Deborah Crombie delivers a powerful tale of intrigue, betrayal, and lies that will plunge married London detectives Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James into the unspeakable darkness that lies at the heart of murder.
Recently transferred to the London borough of Camden from Scotland Yard headquarters, Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and his new murder investigation team are called to a deadly bombing at historic St. Pancras Station. By fortunate coincidence, Melody Talbot, Gemma's trusted colleague, witnesses the explosion. The victim was taking part in an organized protest, yet the other group members swear the young man only meant to set off a smoke bomb. As Kincaid begins to gather the facts, he finds every piece of the puzzle yields an unexpected pattern, including the disappearance of a mysterious bystander.
This was a great installment in the Insp. Duncan Kinkaid series! It echoes recent events and issues, but at the same time, brings us more of the interpersonal Kinkaid family life and the reader really gets to know all the characters better. It is said that tragedy brings out our true personality, and in this drama, all of the characters shine and show what makes them a great team, even if the 'team' has been split by divisional higher ups. It was interesting to see Kincaid and Gemma both working cases, while sharing personnel, out of different offices. Contrasting their work styles showed their dedication and what brought them together in the first place. This was an excellent installment in the series and will leave the reader wondering what will happen next!
