# 82 And Justice There is None

And Justice There is None

Deborah Crombie

Who killed young and beautiful Dawn Arrowood is the question that Gemma James must answer.

Suspicion seems to fall on Dawn's rich, aggressive, posessive husband, successful antique dealer Karl Arrowood; especially when it comes to light that Dawn has been having an affair, and was pregnant at the time of her murder. However, when Karl is also found murdered, the case becomes even more baffling.

As newly-promoted Gemma James works to find the murderer with the help of her significant other, Detective Inspector Duncan Kincaid, she is also working to adjust to the many changes that have taken place in her personal life. She is pregnant, and she and Duncan have decided to move in together, with her son, Toby, Duncan's son, Kit, Kit's dog, Tess, and the new family dog, Geordie. Not to mention that it's Christmas time.

I'd forgotten how much I liked the Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series. Deborah Crombie's writing is so very, very good and solid. It's excellent, as a matter of fact.
