When a search-and-rescue team discovers a woman’sbody 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.

To further complicate things, a separate investigation, led by Detective Inspector Gemma James, Kincaid’s wife, soon reveals a disturbing, possibly related, series of crimes,widening the field of suspects. But when someone tries to kill the search-and-rescue team member who found the body, the case becomes even more complex and dangerous.

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.

Mysteries usually aren't my thing, but I really enjoyed this. I will have to read more of this series. It was easy to follow in spite of not having read any of her previous books, which I am now going to have to read. Read full review
