Gemma James is adjusting to professional and personal changes—and a future now intricately entwined with Duncan Kincaid. But her new responsibilities are put to the test when she is placed in charge of a particularly brutal homicide: The lovely young wife of a wealthy antiques dealer has been found murdered on fashionable Notting Hill.

The main focus of Gemma’s investigation is Karl Arrowood, who had the most powerful motive for killing his unfaithful wife. But this case sets off warning bells for Duncan: It’s far too similar to a recent unsolved murder in which an another person was killed in precisely the same way.

And when the escalating violence claims yet another victim, he and Gemma find themselves at increasing odds with each other—as two separate investigations become linked in the most startling of ways. Their hunt for a killer will traverse the teeming stalls of the city’s antiques markets to a decades-in-the-making vendetta of history and hatred that has been honed to a flawless, deadly point. To solve this case, Gemma and Duncan must walk a merciless razor’s edge through a place where true justice will be a long time coming.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Crombie is adept at layering character with police work and keeping the ongoing plot up to date.”

    Toronto Globe and Mail

  • “As usual, Crombie handles a complicated plot with style, providing enough twists and turns to hold the reader’s attention while driving the narrative to a stunning conclusion.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “A clever police procedural as well as an exciting relationship drama.”

    Midwest Book Review

  • “A supremely satisfying…Essential for mystery lovers.”

    Library Journal

  • “Fearful of igniting a new Jack the Ripper-style panic, Duncan and Gemma soon find themselves at odds when their investigations become linked in startling, unexpected ways, culminating in an exciting denouement with serious undercurrents. Crombie keeps the action moving throughout.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “As much a splendid depiction of London’s Notting Hill Road district as it is a harrowing murder mystery. Crombie weaves the café and pub owners and the stall keepers in Notting Hill Market into the story, giving it a feeling of groundedness that many contemporary mysteries lack.”

    Booklist

  • “Anglophiles will cheer the sociological evocation of the changing London neighborhood, and there’s plenty of justice, despite the title.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Michael Deehy has narrated earlier books in this series and has a firm grasp of the characters. Over several books, we come to know these people; Deehy’s sensitive characterizations help make them our old friends. Deehy is particularly good at conveying emotion and states of being-tired characters sound tired, peevish characters sound peevish. If this is new territory, you’ll be hooked; if you know the series, welcome back.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois | 2/17/2014

    " Another good read, though at times too predictable. I listened to this one, and Deborah Crombie's books are perfect to listen to - not too complicated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 2/17/2014

    " Be sure to read this series in order because, although each novel is a well plotted mystery, the main charm comes in the protagonists: the British detective and his assistants and their engaging stories and development. The morals, however, of the detectives are "modern,"so be warned. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/10/2014

    " A good read! I'll need to read some more mysteries by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 2/3/2014

    " Really great mystery story for the Kincaid/James team in London. Learn a little about the city and the variety of people there. The murders of 2 women seem to be related somehow. The threads of the situation are slow to put together. In addition, the team have their personal problems to solve. Very good series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 2/1/2014

    " It is hard to believe that Deborah Crombie is a Texan. She captures the feeling, the environment and the nature of England with great skill and flair. Her characters are very realistic and easily pictured.She does not fail to please! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/20/2014

    " Crombie gets better with every entry in the series. By turns heartbreaking and joyful, she always crafts a great story. Well done all around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/28/2013

    " Another excellent one in the series--if I had to quibble, I'd say this one was weaker than the others, but not weak enough for me to mark it down a star. The ending wasn't done with Crombie's usual flair, either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Jem | 12/18/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. The pacing was excellent, and small sections presented in a different voice helped me stay interested throughout. I will definitely try other books in this series. My biggest fear right now is that I'll forget the details before we discuss this at book group! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 11/30/2013

    " My favorite one in the series so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcy Heller | 10/17/2013

    " Another intelligent and multi-layered English murder mystery by American writer Deborah Crombie. I like Duncan and Gemma so I keep reading these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia Walter | 10/16/2013

    " Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid are now sharing a home with their two sons from previous relationships. The setting for the mystery is the Portobello Road antique market. Another good addition to a reliable series of British police procedurals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michellestevens234 | 10/10/2013

    " very good twisty plot, sort of guessed who the killer was before the end but brilliantly done "

    " another good book in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gary Sedivy | 2/27/2013

    " A British murder mystery. They have a slightly different style from the American mysteries. Different, but okay. Can't say I am a big fan, but it was readable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 2/10/2013

    " Another engaging story well told and with sympathetic characters, but some of the plot twists are a bit of a stretch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 8/22/2012

    " Number 8--she just writes better and better. Her books are dense, complicated, and very hard to put down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 8/7/2012

    " Another great read in this series. Really surprises you at the very end. This author can surely weave a complicated tale. Her characters are so human, and see their flaws and their passion. This one has personal sadness for our heroes, but also great joy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roberta | 5/3/2012

    " Reliable and interesting. This is the one where Duncan and Gemma move in together and she loses the baby. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 2/24/2012

    " This is another 4 star book. But I must admit that any book that is about Duncan and Gemma, my friends, is automatically a 4 star. I re-read them often since they are such old friends. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 patience | 1/6/2012

    " I'd really give it a 2.5. I've not liked Deborah Crombie in the past but this was an engaging book for the most part. There is a surprise element, as I thought I'd sussed out the killer but found I was wrong. I may try another of her books just to pass the time, on an airplane, perhaps. "
