In the third in Crombie's Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series, the Scotland Yard detectives are called in to investigate when a body is found floating in a Thames River lock. Before long, the two find themselves untangling a complicated web of family lies and deception. Thanks to narrator Michael Deehy's layered performance, listeners feel Kincaid and James's attraction to one another yet understand their reluctance to complicate their working lives by allowing it to surface. Deehy's secondary characters are multidimensional and intriguing, especially when Kincaid finds himself inexplicably drawn to the victim's estranged wife. Crombie's insightful writing and an engrossing reading by Deehy make this haunting whodunit well worth hearing. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
