Definitely the best of the Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series thus far. The intertwining story of lives over a period of generations ending in how choices we make can so affect the lives of others and that sometimes justice is is absent but life goes on

The first book in a long time that I could not put down and read way beyond my bedtime ( )

In this installment of the popular series featuring Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James, Duncan is now working as a Supt. for Scotland Yard while Gemma has been promoted to Inspector for the beat covering Notting Hill. It's also the beginning of some changes for their relationship as they prepare to move in together with their children and animals as well. The murder of a wealthy antique-dealing resident of Notting Hill, who lives near Duncan and Gemma's new place is murdered. The case is Gemma's. There is a lot of pressure. Duncan sees a similarity between it and an unsolved crime and asks to also be assigned to the case to explore the older investigation. Crombie proves once again that she is a step above most writers. There are many layers to the story. The plotting is nearly perfect. The current mystery is combined with an older story which is relevant. I enjoyed the chapter introductions which were short paragraphs from a couple of histories of the area in which the mystery is set. ( )

Wow! I am truly amazed. I don't know if I've ever read a book in which the author managed to keep the plot secret so long, till the very, very end. Many characters, many time lines, all so skillfully weaving together. At first I was put off by the thought of a "British" mystery written by an American, but she did a splendid job. Nice job, too, of weaving professional and personal story lines. I will definitely read more of this author's books. ( )

Epigraph
The sun no longer shows
His face; and treason sows
His secret seeds that no man can detect;
Fathers by their children are undone;
The brother would the brother cheat;
And the cowled monk is a deceit...
Might is right, and justice there is none.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553579304, Mass Market Paperback)

The life of Scotland Yard's Gemma James is changing in major ways--she's just been promoted to Inspector, she's pregnant, and she and her young son are about to move into spacious new digs with her lover, Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid. Then the beautiful young wife of a Portobello Road antiques dealer is murdered in the driveway of her Notting Hill home and the case lands in Gemma's disappearing lap. Dawn Arrowood, as Gemma soon discovers, was pregnant when she died, most likely by Alex Dunn, a porcelain dealer in Portobello Market whose disappearance after the murder makes him a prime suspect. But Gemma rules him out as the killer, focusing her investigation on Karl Arrowood, the dead woman's husband. When Karl is murdered, she's stymied, but then Kincaid's investigation into what may be a serial killer turns up a bizarre connection to Gemma's case and a link to Karl Arrowood's sideline as a drug smuggler. As usual, Crombie handles a complicated plot with style, providing enough twists and turns to hold the reader's attention while driving the narrative to a stunning conclusion. --Jane Adams
