BOOK REVIEW: MOURN NOT YOUR DEAD
Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James are cops with Scotland Yard. He's her boss, and in earlier books in this series he has been her lover as well. Responding to an inner cautionary voice, Gemma has put their romantic relationship on hold. Most providers of advice for career advancement as well as love relationships would probably endorse her decision, but James and Kincaid are finding it a difficult path to trod.
When cop is found bludgeoned to death in his suburban London home, Kincaid and James are assigned to investigate. The dead man was a superior officer in a London city police division and had a wide reputation as a difficult man to work with.
Suspects abound in the small community where the murdered man made his home. The two investigators have good reason to suspect that nearly everyone they interview is holding back some of the truth. Before long, city beats in London neighborhoods are part of the scope of their investigation and they uncover a much wider net of wrong doing.
Kincaid and James must strive to keep their personal feelings separate from their investigative duties. Although the basic story and classic police procedures have been told many times before by many other authors, Crombie's characters provide a little something extra as they balance romance and the work place.
