Mystery & Suspense • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Crombie's eleventh mystery is set in Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Duncan Kincaid's hometown of Nantwich, "in the wilds of Chesire." The story is told from the point of view of his life partner Gemma James, who also works for the Yard. Traveling with their blended family to spend Christmas with Kincaid's parents, they find themselves entangled in murders? historic and current. Michael Deehy deftly moves from London accents to the tones of quarrelsome teens and country squire snobs. Best of all are his depictions of the canal people who live on barges along England's internal waterways. Old accusations and recent crimes generate threats against the canal families and the Kincaids--impelling the two detectives into action.
