Description

New York Times bestselling author Deborah Crombie makes her mark with this absorbing, finely hued tale of suspense—a deeply atmospheric and twisting mystery full of deadly secrets, salacious lies, and unexpected betrayals involving the mysterious drowning of a Met detective—an accomplished rower—on the Thames.

When a K9 search-and-rescue team discovers a woman's body tangled up with debris in the river, Scotland Yard superintendent Duncan Kincaid finds himself heading an investigation fraught with complications. The victim, Rebecca Meredith, was a talented but difficult woman with many admirers—and just as many enemies. An Olympic contender on the verge of a controversial comeback, she was also a high-ranking detective with the Met—a fact that raises a host of political and ethical issues in an already sensitive case.

To further complicate the situation, a separate investigation, led by Detective Inspector Gemma James, Kincaid's wife, soon reveals a disturbing—and possibly related—series of crimes, widening the field of suspects. But when someone tries to kill the search-and-rescue team member who found Rebecca's body, the case becomes even more complex and dangerous, involving powerful interests with tentacles that reach deep into the heart of the Met itself.

Surrounded by enemies with friendly faces, pressured to find answers quickly while protecting the Yard at all costs, his career and reputation on the line, Kincaid must race to catch the killer before more innocent lives are lost—including his own.

Publishers Weekly Review

Nov 28, 2011 – Macavity Award–winner Crombie examines the corrupting nature of power in her riveting 14th novel featuring Scotland Yard Supt. Duncan Kincaid and Det. Insp. Gemma James (after 2009’s Necessary as Blood). When Rebecca Meredith, a detective chief inspector with the Metropolitan Police and an Olympic rowing hopeful, drowns under suspicious circumstances during an evening training session on the Thames in historic Henley, the newly married Kincaid and James investigate what turns into a homicide case. Suspects include Meredith’s overly friendly ex-husband, a K9 search and rescue volunteer who was in love with her, her old rowing coach, and even a police officer. Meredith had accused Deputy Asst. Commissioner Angus Craig of rape, and hers was not the only accusation. Crombie gives an insightful look into British police procedures as well as a vivid view of the vagaries of London neighborhoods. Kincaid and James’s chaotic, happy home sharply contrasts with the often messy police business.

No Mark Upon Her

Another great read; Crombie's books get better and better. This one gives us a glimpse into the world of competitive rowing, dog search and rescue, police politics and "blended" family life while making us care for a host of well-developed characters. Oh yes, and there are murders, too, that intriguingly complicate matters...

No Mark Upon Her

I was impatient waiting for Gemma and Duncan's next book. The wait was worth it though. Right from the start we are dropped into the active family as though we were never gone. It is distracting when an author goes on and "re-educating" the reader on the details of the characters from previous books. Their history is woven into the story seamlessly. I became attached to each of the possible suspects from the beginning and would put the book down as the suspense built because I didn't want to believe any of them had committed the crime. Normally I would have read it through, but the tension was so real I didn't want the book to end, does that make sense? Details about rowing, the training, the boats and the significance in the lives of the characters again melded well with the story, I could almost want to give it try myself. I loved the book,was sorry for it to come to the end. Glad I bought it rather than wait for my turn at the library because I surely will read it again in the future.

This is the first time I have written a review on a book that I have read on an I pad by Deborah Crombie. I have read all of her books and find them all excellent . I love the twists within twists and the atmosphere she can create. I hate coming to the end because I know I have to wait a long time before the next one comes out. I was disappointed that on the electronic version it did not have the maps. I guess I will have to buy a hard copy to see where I have read. I would like her to base another book in Scotland. Thanks
