  • “Crombie keeps this series on its toes with her smooth procedural techniques and engagingly eccentric characters.”

    - New York Times Book Review
  • “Rich and complex.”

    - Times (London)
  • “Crombie has laid claim to the literary territory of moody psychological suspense owned by P. D. James and Barbara Vine.”

    - Washington Post
  • “In this dark house, the author’s light shines brightly.”

    - Richmond-Times Dispatch
  • “Great characters, a rich plot, graceful writing, and dramatic, tense scenes. The result is a fantastic read…The character-driven plot doesn’t stop with Kincaid and James. Even the secondary characters are fully developed, and their stories are equally important to the book. Crombie shows that she’s a master of action as well…This novel of physical and emotional challenges succeeds at all levels. It is, in short, superb.”

  • “Michael Deehy delivers an outstanding, nuanced reading…The individual threads are woven together expertly to form a rich and coherent whole. It’s a whole made even better by Deehy, who creates distinctive, revealing voices for the characters and reads with beautiful pacing. In a burning building with fire-fighters, for example, we hear their fear and their self-control without being aware of Deehy the narrator. This is a superb performance from start to finish. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

  • “It’s a web of gossamer-thin clues that police, under the patient Superintendent Kincaid, work to untangle as they race against time to find the imperiled Harriet. Myriad subplots that have accrued from past entries slow the action in places, but Duncan and Gemma are such interesting and attractive characters that few readers will mind.”

    " I've been enjoying Deborah Crombie mysteries for years. She is an excellent writer who develops her main characters and their relationships in depth. The mystery in this book is satisfyingly complex and tricky and the combination of police procedural and intuitive leaps is believable. "
