The murder of Police Commander Alastair Gilbert compels Inspector Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James to bring their every investigative skill to bear and to reexamine both their turbulent feelings for each other and their professional ethics. Reprint.


An important and powerful policeman has been murdered, bludgeoned to death in his own kitchen. Few in suburban Surrey mourn the violent passing of Division Commander Alastair Gilbert, whose arrogance and cruelty were legendary in his village and in wider police circles -- which only makes the job of Scotland Yard investigators Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James more difficult. And as every discovery reveals another instance of misplaced trust, festering secrets, and murderous rage, they must put aside their own personal feelings for the victim -- and for each other -- in the name of justice and the law.

A disliked police division commander is murdered and there are lots of suspects in the village where nobody liked the deceased. Good plot development with lots of side issues such as police corruption, the modern woman, spousal abuse, single parenthood and the prickly relationship between Kincaid and James that comes to a satisfying resolution. A fun enjoyable read with a very good ending.

My first Crombie book. I can hardly wait to read more. So glad she has written many. Wonderful, fully developed characters I could care about, and interesting views of village life and police politics as well as a darn good mystery.

My favorite of this series so far. Things are awkward between our heroes Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James after what happened in the last book. Their interactions make the series go. A good mystery with very well drawn characters, great atmosphere and just a touch of danger.
