When Detective Inspector Gemma James is assigned to the case that involves a well-respected barrister who is found naked, trussed and apparently strangled in a seedy hotel, she's not sure what to think. Is it murder or a rather unsavory accident?

The discovery of a second body, a junior barrister, found killed in the same manner leaves no question about the situation. Not only is it definitely murder, but it aalso appears that James has a serial killer on her hands.

While Gemma leads the murder investigation team, her husband, Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid, is at home on a leave of absence taking care of the couple's three year old foster daughter. As he follows his wife's case Duncan realizes he has a personal connection with one of the suspects. When the young man admits he knows one of the dead men, Duncan believes that not only is this individual a link between the two dead men but he could well be the next victim. Or, on the other hand, he could be the killer!

What follows next is a riveting chain of events that play out in London's legendary Crystal Palace and makes for a very exciting read. This is another solid outing for this extraordinary husband and wife detective team that has made Deborah Crombie a much admired suspense writer in both the U.S. and Great Britain.
