      • content: Narrator Michael Deehy rocks! His reading of this mystery is done in a clear British accent with careful attention to the author's directives. With his narration, each character's expressions are appropriately inflected to emphasize Crombie's dialogue. Deehy's depiction of vacationing Scotland Yard Super-intendent Duncan Kincaid underscores his cautious yet caring manner. His partner, the warmer, more excitable Sergeant Gemma James, balances the tone. Deehy applies distinctive characterizations to the cast of young and old who must help solve a string of murders lest they meet a similar fate. His superb reading doesn't miss a beat as Kincaid and James unravel the details of oddly intertwined timeshare owners to find a killer. J.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine

        February 1, 1993
        This polished mystery seems more the work of a seasoned genre master than the first novel it is. Det. Supt. Duncan Kincaid, spending his vacation from Scotland Yard at a Yorkshire time-share along with several other guests, finds his holiday anything but relaxing. Immediately after he arrives at the elegant estate, he overhears a heated argument between the snobbish caretaker and her sarcastic assistant manager. Late that evening, the assistant is electrocuted in the Jacuzzi. To the consternation of Yorkshire police, Kincaid assumes an active role in the investigation, which becomes more urgent after two more deaths. Meanwhile, Sgt. Gemma James, a pragmatic single mother charmed by Kincaid's unpretentious demeanor and bachelor status, digs for additional clues in London. Crombie, a Texan, has written a convincingly British whodunit, limning Kincaid and James with the ease and authority of one who has already completed several installments in a series. Readers will surely welcome follow-up appearances.
