    " I read this WAY faster than anything else recently. It was good to be back in the company of Gemma and Duncan, although there wasn't quite enough Duncan for me, and I liked the further expansion of Melody's character. Good solid plot and interesting secondary characters, with a minor cliff hanger at the end (not to do with the current mystery, but the series as a whole.). This one isn't even in stores yet and I'm already impatient for the next one! "

    " Another series I try always to read. I like the blend of police procedure and family life, and the long-running history of their lives. This is Gemma's story, with Duncan at home as a house husband. There are 2 murders, both victims are lawyers, and these look like sex crimes. The link between them seems to be a young guitarist about to get his break--they're all connected through the Crystal Palace location of their pasts and present. Wonderful snippets about the history of Crystal Palace head the chapters, and the book gives one a great sense of place. Lots of red herrings but a believable villain. As much about their lives as the mystery. Richly descriptive, multiple points of view, moody and atmospheric, character-centered. A good entry--but probably not the place for someone new to the series to start. While I like narrator Gerard Doyle, I find it curious that he reads this, rather than Jenny Sterlin, since it's mostly from the points of view of Gemma and her female assistant. "

    " This series is a favorite for many reasons. The mysteries themselves are good, often unexpected by not ridiculously so. There is a sense of evolution and growth in the characters and the secondary characters are also well defined.And Duncan and Gemma are just plain likeable. "
