Macavity Award-winning author Deborah Crombie paints a vivid portrait of England's seedy underbelly in Necessary as Blood.

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in mid May, a young mother, Sandra Gilles, leaves her daughter with a friend at the Columbia Road Flower Market and disappears. Shortly thereafter, her husband, a Pakistani lawyer, is killed. Scotland Yard detective Gemma James happens upon the scene in time to witness the investigator making a mistake.

When Duncan and his trusted sergeant, Doug Cullen, see Gemma's name in the report, they decide to take the case. Working together again, Gemma, Duncan, Doug, and Melody Talbot must solve it before the murderer can get his hands on the real prize, Naz and Sandra's daughter.

But just as the case grows more dangerous, a personal issue threatens to throw Gemma and Duncan off the trail. In the end, it is up to them to stop a vicious killer and protect the child whose fate hangs in the balance.

    " I am a fan of mystery series - having thoroughly enjoyed the books of Sue Grafton and both Kellermans. My sister bought this book for me as a birthday present; she wanted to introduce me to Deborah Crombie, an mystery author whose books take place in London. While not the most gripping mystery novel I've ever read it was an enjoyable enough read; the characters were likable and the author successfully created a sense of place with her streetscape descriptions, colloquial speech and patterns, and the use of historical references/blurbs at the start of each chapter. For a quick, easy read I will probably look for other books by this author on the library shelves. "

    " I liked this. In some ways it was like a good epidose of the Bill. I enjoyed the combination of cop drama and social work. In the end Charlotte's fate was all that matters and it fell into place a little too easily. "

    " A bit predictable, but still heart warming, in its own way. "
