Perhaps it is a blessing when Jasmine Dent dies in her sleep. At last an end has come to the suffering of a body horribly ravaged by disease. It may well have been suicide; she had certainly expressed her willingness to speed the inevitable. But small inconsistencies lead her neighbor, Superintendent Duncan Kincaid, to a startling conclusion: Dent was murdered. But if not for mercy, why would someone destroy a life already doomed? As Kincaid and his appealing assistant Sergeant Gemma James sift through the dead woman's strange history, a troubling puzzle emerges: a bizarre amalgam of charity and crime--and of the blinding passions that can drive the human animal to perform cruel and inhuman acts.

Not my Favorite in this Series
The narrator does a good job, and the book is well written, with good descriptions of people and places, but quite frankly I really disliked the story. There were parts that made me uncomfortable, and I didn't like the way it seemed that Kincaid was always noticing women's breasts, etc. It was thrown in often enough for it to be distracting, and he came off looking a little like a creep. I liked the first book in this series, and think I will try the next, but I should've listened to the reviews that said this title wasn't a winner.
He does a good job differentiating between the characters.
If you're a bit sensitive to racy material, this book will probably make you uncomfortable. It's not graphic, exactly, but it had a certain "ick" factor for me. I think it could have been handled in a better way than it was. Just my opinion, many would probably disagree but I can be a little squeamish.
