        December 24, 2012
        Bestseller Crombie puts together past and present in her solid, finely controlled 15th novel featuring married police detectives Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid (after 2012’s No Mark upon Her). While Duncan looks after their three-year-old foster daughter at home, Gemma and Det. Sgt. Melody Talbot investigate the murder of barrister Vincent Arnott, found in a seedy hotel in London’s Crystal Palace area, naked, tied with a belt, and strangled. When the body of a second barrister, killed in exactly the same way, turns up, physical evidence proves the same person murdered both men. Gemma and Melody painstakingly and methodically unravel the clues, finding connections that began 15 years earlier in the Crystal Palace area. Flashbacks show how the meeting of a lonely 13-year-old boy and a recently widowed teacher had grave consequences. The unfolding domestic relationship between Gemma and Duncan softens and humanizes them. The city of London, foggy, blustery, and historic, provides a seductive background.

        While husband Duncan Kincaid remains at home to help foster-child Charlotte adjust, Gemma James works a gruesome murder in Crystal Palace, an area of London named after a magnificent glass exhibition hall that was destroyed in the 1930s. The discovery of a dead barrister in a seedy hotel room leads Gemma and colleague Detective Sergeant Melody Talbot to a talented young guitarist who grew up in the neighborhood. Andy Monahan doesn't seem like a killer, but it's clear to Gemma that he's keeping something back. When a second barrister is killed in a similarly gruesome fashion, Andy's link to both victims and to Crystal Palace puts him dead center in the investigation. The question, of course, is, Will Andy be next? More predictable than usual and not the best choice to introduce readers to the series, this will nevertheless please Crombie's many fans. They will already be invested in James-Kincaid family dynamics and know toddler Charlotte's tragic story, which began in Necessary as Blood (2006) and is referenced without much explanation here.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
