Book Review: Necessary as Blood

Title Necessary as Blood
Author Deborah Crombie
Rating ****
Tags mystery, series, police procedurals, london, england, gemma james, duncan kincaid 

This is the 13th volume in Deborah Crombie's Gemma James/ Duncan Kinkaid series. Gemma and Duncan are both police officers in London, and in a long-term committed relationship. For that reason they no longer work in the same office, but they both get drawn into a case of a murdered man whose wife had disappeared some months previously. The murdered man was a friend of a friend of theirs, and they get concerned as to what will happen to the three-year old child of the couple.

Crombie is one of my favorite authors. This book is quite good. Not my favorite of the series, but well worth reading.
