Publisher's Summary

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.

I liked this book. There is a nice balance of intriguing plot and character development. The story moves along at a steady pace that seemed just right to me. There is a variety of characters, each distinctive. From the beginning of the book, a key question is whether there actually was a murder.

The tone of this book seems a little more serious than many "cozy" mysteries (I do enjoy "cozies"). The characters are a little more intricate, the tone a bit more somber. For me that made the book more interesting and involving, but not at all depressing. There are no graphic descriptions of sex or violence, and no excessive use of profanity.

This is the second Deborah Crombie book that I've read and I liked this one even more than the first. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

classic who-dun-it

no nasty blood and gore or CSI in this novel. It's reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Suspicious death in an English town with a closed cast of characters, and a detective who solves the mystery with his little grey cells after interviewing all the suspects. The author is good at creating a lot of red herrings to keep the reader guessing til the end. An easy and enjoyable read.
