A Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James Mystery #17 by New York Times bestselling author Deborah Crombie
Scotland Yard detectives Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James undertake separate investigations that reveal unsettling complications for their own lives.
On a beautiful spring morning in mid-May, in one of Notting Hill's private gardens, the pretty young woman in the white dress looks to passersby as if she's sleeping. But Reagan Keating has been murdered, and lead detective, DI Kerry Boatman, turns to Detective Investigator, Gemma James for help, as Gemma has a personal connection to the case. It seems Reagan was the nanny of a child who attends the same dance studio as Toby, Gemma and Kincaid's son.
Gemma soon discovers that Reagan's death is not the first tragedy in this idyllic London spot; a few months before, a young boy died in a tragic accident. When still another violent end befalls a third garden resident, it's clear that Boatman and Gemma must top the killer before another innocent life is taken.
Meanwhile, Kincaid finds himself haunted by disturbing connections between past events and several previous - and seemingly unrelated - cases that involved members of Scotland Yard, that the crimes are linked. Are his family and friends in mortal danger as well? When a Metropolitan Police officer close to him is brutally attacked, Kincaid's hunch turns to certainty that there's a traitor in the ranks. Kincaid now fears he can't trust anyone.
A child's fate and a life spent in the pursuit of justice both hang in the balance in this taut, thrilling novel.

"A master of the modern British mystery... one writer who gets better with every book." - Harrisburg Patriot News
"Crombie has evolved into a masterful novelist." - Denver Post

"An uncanny affinity for the English detective genre... Her characters are three-dimensional and are drawn with compassion and sensitivity." - Dallas Morning News
