Publisher Description

In this “thoroughly entertaining mystery with a cleverly conceived and well-executed plot” (Booklist), Edgar Award-nominated author Deborah Crombie introduces us to Duncan Kincaid of Scotland Yard and his partner, Gemma James.

A week's holiday in a luxurious Yorkshire time-share is just what Scotland Yard's Superintendent Duncan Kincaid needs. But the discovery of a body floating in the whirlpool bath ends Kincaid's vacation before it's begun. One of his new acquaintances at Followdale House is dead; another is a killer. Despite a distinct lack of cooperation from the local constabulary, Kincaid's keen sense of duty won't allow him to ignore the heinous crime, impelling him to send for his enthusiastic young assistant, Sergeant Gemma James. But the stakes are raised dramatically when a second murder occurs, and Kincaid and James find themselves in a determined hunt for a fiendish felon who enjoys homicide a bit too much.

Good Read

Enjoyed this quick read. Looking forward to reading more of her books.

Pretty good

A little low on action and character development, but there was enough there to keep reading. A light weight beach read for mystery lovers.

A Share in Death

A well plotted mystery with enough suspense to keep the tale rolling along... This is Duncan's case, but it becomes clear that he functions best with Gemma beside him - and it is also clear, to the readers, if not to the participants, that there will be more to the relationship between the two detectives in subsequent novels. This was a thoroughly satisfying read!
