Scotland Yard's Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James face their most haunting case yet when the past devastatingly intersects with the present....

The call from Scotland Yard couldn't have come at a worse time for Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid. He has promised the weekend to Kit, the eleven-year-old son of his ex-wife. The son he never knew he fathered -- who doesn't yet know Kincaid's true identity.

But Duncan's best intentions are shattered by an investigation that draws him in and swiftly consumes him. It seems to begin with the discovery of the body of a beautiful young woman in an East London park. But Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James will discover that this case has long roots that reach far back into the past, and that resentments which should have been decades buried still have the power to hurt -- and maybe even the capacity to kill.

I am a belated fan of Crombie's and am so glad to have found her. This was the perfect absorbing read for a long, unusually hot, San Francisco holiday weekend. Such well developed characters, and so many of them I marvelled at the author's ability to weave them into such a satisfying whole.
Highly recommended.

Although I don't find the actual mysteries in this series very suspenseful or compelling, I can overlook that shortcoming because the author does such a great job developing the characters. For me, plot is always less important than complex, well-developed characters. Crombie does not let us down in this installment in the Kincaid/James series. Outside of the mystery, Duncan continues to struggle in his relationship with Kit and Gemma spreads her wings a bit.
