Interesting Character-Driven Mystery
Any additional comments?
The pleasure of this mystery is in watching the author develop her characters layer by layer, with the clues coming from Kincaid's and James' successive discoveries about the personalities in play. Readers who like smart British mysteries with a minimum of gore will enjoy this extremely well narrated story---not as spectacular or byzantine as P. D. James, but within that tradition.

This will NOT be my last Crombie!
Confused by other reviewers' remarks and curious as to why some could not get into the characters of this novel. Thoroughly enjoyed this one, got more into the characters in this one than in book #2, which I also enjoyed. Looking forward to starting book #4 next week.
Will be interesting when I get to the audios that change narrators to the Gemma James character as the primary. Normally pass up women narrators (not because they are not good - some are the best) because I don't hear a high voice as well as a low one and tend to miss words.
I'd recommend this series of non-violent murder mysteries to all that like that genre. And, thanks to Audible for adding the "Series" feature, makes it easy to go through them.
