Often compared to both Ruth Rendell and P. D. James, Deborah Crombie is internationally acclaimed for her deftly written mysteries that combine suspense with lyrical prose. Sharply etched characters further enrich this story of tangled relationships and dark secrets.

Twelve years after their divorce, Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid receives a phone call from his ex-wife Victoria asking for his help. While working on a biography of the late poet Lydia Brooke, she has uncovered information that has her convinced Lydia’s suicide five years ago was really murder.

As Duncan begins his investigation, another murder occurs closer to home. Now he finds himself frantically searching for clues in Lydia’s complicated past to find the killer before he strikes again.

Award-winning author Deborah Crombie has crafted a beautifully written, multilayered mystery that leaves you gasping with surprise. Jenny Sterlin’s narration deftly creates an air of suspense while capturing every nuance of the language.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The trouble with romantic mysteries is that the romance usually smothers the mystery. More praise, then, to Deborah Crombie for making the tangled love relationships in Dreaming of the Bones the very heart of her mystery.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rebecca Williamson | 2/18/2014

    " This is a slow-paced book that I sank deep into. The characters and their world (Scotland Yard to Cambridge) feel real, thanks to rich detail and complicated relationships. I always love the story within a story format of solving an old mystery to solve the current mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Bethany | 1/27/2014

    " Not my favorite plot so far and a little more language and sensuality than her past novels. Still mostly clean mystery without gore and all the other junk. Crombie's books aren't intensely suspenseful...it's more of a methodical approach to figuring out the puzzle. Obviously I keep reading them for entertainment purposes. "
