No Mark Upon Her by Deborah Crombie....R&G!

Looking for an exciting mystery that will keep you guessing?  Be sure to pick up No Mark Upon Her by Deborah Crombie!  Here is the scoop...

New York Times bestselling author Deborah Crombie makes her mark with this absorbing, finely hued tale of suspense—a deeply atmospheric and twisting mystery full of deadly secrets, salacious lies, and unexpected betrayals involving the mysterious drowning of a Met detective—an accomplished rower—on the Thames.

When a K9 search-and-rescue team discovers a woman's body tangled up with debris in the river, Scotland Yard superintendent Duncan Kincaid finds himself heading an investigation fraught with complications. The victim, Rebecca Meredith, was a talented but difficult woman with many admirers—and just as many enemies. An Olympic contender on the verge of a controversial comeback, she was also a high-ranking detective with the Met—a fact that raises a host of political and ethical issues in an already sensitive case.

To further complicate the situation, a separate investigation, led by Detective Inspector Gemma James, Kincaid's wife, soon reveals a disturbing—and possibly related—series of crimes, widening the field of suspects. But when someone tries to kill the search-and-rescue team member who found Rebecca's body, the case becomes even more complex and dangerous, involving powerful interests with tentacles that reach deep into the heart of the Met itself.

Surrounded by enemies with friendly faces, pressured to find answers quickly while protecting the Yard at all costs, his career and reputation on the line, Kincaid must race to catch the killer before more innocent lives are lost—including his own.

This is the first book I had read in this Gemma Jones/Duncan Kincaid series but I can guaranty it won't be the last!  Crombie has a true gift for crafting a riveting and complex crime novel!  I love a good mystery and this one certainly was.  There were twists and turns at every corner and I was always left guessing (it certainly is not a book easily put down!).  I will say that I wish I had "known" the characters better but as the 14th novel in the series I have some catching up to do which I plan on doing tomorrow when I hit the library.  I loved the mystery aspect and I loved the family back stories that went along with it.  Deborah Crombie is a new favorite!  Pick up this read today on Amazon...
