Product Description

Product Description

When Superintendant Duncan Kincaid takes Gemma, Kit and Toby to visit his family in Cheshire, Gemma is soon entranced with Nantwich town's pretty buildings and the historic winding canal, and young Kit is instantly smitten with his cousin Lally. But their visit is marred when, on Christmas Eve, Duncan's sister discovers a mummified infant's body interred in the wall of an old dairy barn; a tragedy hauntingly echoed by the recent drowning of Peter Llewellyn, a schoolmate of Lally's. Meanwhile, on her narrowboat, former social worker Annie Lebow is living a life of self-imposed isolation, preparing for a lonely Christmas, made more disturbing by an unexpected meeting earlier in the day. As the police make enquiries into the infant’s death, Kincaid discovers that life in the lovely town of his childhood is far from idyllic, and that the dreaming reaches of the Shropshire Union Canal hold dark and deadly secrets . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric 15 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback
Have read a couple of books in this series already, and it is an author i always look for when in the bookshop. Her books pull you in, something that all police procedurals should do but few achieve. The fact that she is actually American, you can easily overlook as she seems to get everything down perfectly. Looking forward to reading the next one, and picking up previous books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Usual standard of suspense! 12 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Thoroughly enjoyed reading a little more about Duncan and Gemma's extended family life, which added to the plot nicely. Colourful area descriptions. Only realised the culprit right at the end. Great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT 2 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book very much. I am a dedicated reader which does not mean that I will read any old book. When I say I enjoyed the book, I really mean it.

I would recommend Deborah Crombie as an author to try, for a gentle easy enjoyable book to read.
