Publisher's Summary

Gemma James is adjusting to professional and personal changes - and a future now intricately entwined with Duncan Kincaid. But her new responsibilities are put to the test when she is placed in charge of a particularly brutal homicide: The lovely young wife of a wealthy antiques dealer has been found murdered on fashionable Notting Hill.
The main focus of Gemma's investigation is Karl Arrowood, who had the most powerful motive for killing his unfaithful wife. But this case sets off warning bells for Duncan: It's far too similar to an unsolved murder in which an antiques dealer was killed in precisely the same way.

Great story, well narrated

Loved this good story, which unfolds layer by layer. The writing is literate---not Dorothy Sayers good or John Le Carre good, just plain solid, entertaining, interesting good. If you've listened to all the super-star literate mysteries then try the Deborah Crombie series that features a sympathetic, smart, not-too-hard-boiled, but just tough enough woman detective. Narration is excellent.

One of the best in this series

I have read in print all the Gemma James/Duncan Kincaid books over the years, and I'm going back now and listening to them. And I think this was one of the best in the series.

It starts with the murder of antiques dealer in fashionable Notting Hill, but Doug connects it to a similar murder that occurred previously to another antiques dealer elsewhere. As they are investigating these murders, another, slightly mysterious story, is also taking place, weaving in and out of the main one, about a family from Trinidad. Crombie handles the two plot lines very smoothly.

This is also a turning point for the characters in the series, as pregnant Gemma with her son Toby move in with Duncan and his newly-reunited son Kit, as they have decided to be a family. This proves to be a very moving part of the whole story.

I've always liked this series, though later books seem to have more filler and less mystery. I think this one still has a perfect combination of mystery and character development. Recommend!
