A solid mystery/thriller
At first I was bothered by moving back and forth among the various parts of the narrative, a device that seems to be more and more prevalent among mystery writers. But Crombie is a mature, experienced author, fully in command of the plot; she who knows just how far to stretch the suspense before getting on with the main goal of solving the crime. The characters are varied and engaging, and the story's twists and layers will keep you reading. It all comes together in an unusually satisfying, completely credible way.

Enjoy the series
I really enjoy this series featuring Gemma and Kinkaid. I would say that this particular story was not my favorite in the bunch, but definitely readable. I found that I was losing interest in the middle of the book at times. However, I think that Ms. Crombie does a great job letting me get to know a bit of Britain-in this case single rowers near London, while I am sitting in my home in the States.
