Book Review: Where Memories Lie

TitleWhere Memories Lie: A Novel (Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James Novels)
Deborah Crombie


Tagsmystery, series, london, police procedural

Deborah Crombie, like Laurie King, is one of the most reliably good writers. I have never disliked one of her books, and one, Dreaming of the Bones, I thought was of the highest literary quality. Her series is set in London. The two main characters are Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid, both in the police. Their relationship has developed over the course of the series, and each has a son from a previous marriage.

This novel switches back and fortth between scenes with different characters in different time periods. Gradually the pieces come together in a powerful and satisfying novel. Highly recommended.
