Goodreads friend recommended this author to me when I felt sad that I had read som of Edward Marston 's series about the Railway Detective so I went to try out the second memoi in Deborah Crombie 's Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James series and I love it!

Deborah Crombie is an American who writes about a detective superintendent from Scotland Yard named Duncan Kincaid who took his vacation by taking advantage of th relative 's time share week out in thi country in Yorkshire, England.

Duncan tries not to mention that he is a Scotland Yard Detective Superintendent when he arrives at the time share but it comes out when he discover two of the kids staying at the timeshare crying over the assistant manager who has been imprisoned in the spa by someone who threw in a plugged in appliance.

Naturally it comes out who Duncan is and the local olice are not surprise to ge a Scotland Yard Detective Superintendent in their midst.

I have quite a few of this series in my audiobook collection and when I am in need of a soothing and relaxing, but murderous story, I can efinitely listen to a couple more, perhaps a little later on in this series.

I ecently came across reference to Deborah Crombie 's newest book in her series featuring Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James and thought it sounded like omething I ight enjoy.

I do n't like entering a series in mid-stream, for in a good series the main characters will expan and relationships will grow and change or end.

I liked Crombie 's descriptions, her sympathetic characters, her realistic setting, and intriguing mystery.

Think mixed obscure English games a problem here!

I did ead a later release a long while back, but while the mystery was fine, the interpersonal dynamics between longtime recurring characters left me totally in the dark.

Even, it was plausibl that even if the mystery elements can be read as a stand alone, if I really liked to enjoy this series to the aximum, I ’ d have to start at the en.

I ypically only buy books like this when they are deeply discounted ( like$ 1.99 each), or when I an kee them from the library.
