New York Times best-selling author Deborah Crombie makes her mark with this absorbing, finely hued tale of suspense - a deeply atmospheric and twisting mystery full of deadly secrets, salacious lies, and unexpected betrayals involving the mysterious drowning of a Met detective - an accomplished rower - on the Thames.

When a K9 search-and-rescue team discovers a woman's body tangled up with debris in the river, Scotland Yard superintendent Duncan Kincaid finds himself heading an investigation fraught with complications. The victim, Rebecca Meredith, was a talented but difficult woman with many admirers - and just as many enemies. An Olympic contender on the verge of a controversial comeback, she was also a high-ranking detective with the Met - a fact that raises a host of political and ethical issues in an already sensitive case.

To further complicate the situation, a separate investigation, led by Detective Inspector Gemma James, Kincaid's wife, soon reveals a disturbing - and possibly related - series of crimes, widening the field of suspects. But when someone tries to kill the search-and-rescue team member who found Rebecca's body, the case becomes even more complex and dangerous, involving powerful interests with tentacles that reach deep into the heart of the Met itself.

Surrounded by enemies with friendly faces, pressured to find answers quickly while protecting the Yard at all costs, his career and reputation on the line, Kincaid must race to catch the killer before more innocent lives are lost - including his own.

    " Sculling this time and Search and Rescue Dogs. Loved both. "

    " This latest addition to the Gemma & Duncan Kinkead police procedural series is terrific. Set in the rowing town of Henley, Scotland Yard is first called in to investigate the death of a metropolitan policewoman who was also a championship rower. As Duncan investigates, it rapidly becomes clear that the woman was murdered, in part with her own rowing oar. She had been in training for the Olympic singles trials and had also brought charges against a police commissioner for rape. As a result, she was both feared and respected at her police station. Although the accused man was recently retired from the force, Gemma's own near-miss experience with him five years before, leads the husband and wife team to dig deeper. As usual, Crombie fills her pages with interesting characters and glimpses into the Kinkeads' home life with their growing family - Duncan's son Kit, Gemma's son Toby, and their newly adopted daughter Charlotte. Love, love, love this series! All the rowing culture details in this one were fascinating too. "

    " I'm going to have to go back to the beginning with this series. I like the main characters. "

    " I've consistently enjoyed the Kincaid/James mysteries of Deborah Crombie. I feel as with each book her writing gets better, her characters and stories are deeper. Although I'm not a huge fan of children or domestic life, Crombie is very successful in painting a portrait of two working parents and their blended household without going overboard on details or excess sentimentality. This particular plot was very enjoyable to me as I've done a little rowing, but for someone who knows nothing about the sport, I still think they will find this to be an excellent mystery. Even though we only meet the victim for a chapter, Crombie does an excellent job of engaging the reader's curiosity and sympathy. I also salute her for avoiding the pitfalls of fellow American authors turned British mystery writers Martha Grimes and Elizabeth George, who take their research and fall so much in love with it, it overwhelms the rest of the story. Crombie nicely integrates her facts and understanding in service to the plot, which made for a thoroughly enjoyable read. Looking forward to reading her next book. "

    " Gemma and Duncan, married and raising three children (his, hers, and adopted), are still committed to their careers at Scotland Yard. This time the murder is set in the rowing community of Henley. Another good read from Crombie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 12/14/2013

    " A twisted plot - kept me guessing all the way through. Mixed with the personal lives of the main characters keeps me reading through the series. Can't wait for the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 10/4/2013

    " Another good episode in the Duncan and Gemma mystery series. I enjoy the local settings (in this case, Henley on Thames) and the progression of the characters' stories as much as the mystery. "

    " Dianne McB recommended this murder mystery. The victim is a woman rower who is a policewoman. Set in England. "

    " Typically excellent Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James mystery. This one is set in the world of elite rowing and the Leander Club, and, depending on your interest in that subject, you might find the descriptions a bit long. "
