In the first installment of Deborah Crombie's Duncan Kincaid and Gemma series British mystery series, A Share in Death, we get to know this dynamic duo in this mystery debut. When Superintendent Duncan Kincaid went on holiday to a Yorkshire time-share hotel, he got more than he bargained for during his stay. He met an interesting array of characters who also stayed there. But when Sebastian Wade drowned in the pool, it was anything but an accident. That's when he needed his partner, Gemma James, a divorced single mother to help him with the inquiries of the other time-share hotel guests there. Between an assault and another murder, they've learned more secrets and lies, deception and betrayal and blackmail. In the end, they couldn't believe who done it and why, before his holiday was over.
This was a terrific Kincaid/James debut from Deborah Crombie. We do get to care about Kincaid and James and to get to know them well and better for future installments in this series. We also cared about Hannah and the other hotel guests. I loved the time-share hotel in Yorkshire, England, and the surroundings in the area. This would make you think and second-guess who done it and why in the end. Great drama, excellent non-stop action and intrigue with plenty of mystery to the climax.
