It is the call Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid never expected—and one he certainly doesn't want. Victoria, his ex-wife, who walked out without an explanation more than a decade ago, asks him to look into the suicide of local poet, Lydia Brooke—a case that's been officially closed for five years. The troubled young writer's death, Victoria claims, might well have been murder.

No one is more surprised than Kincaid himself when he agrees to investigate—not even his partner and lover, Sergeant Gemma James. But it's a second death that raises the stakes and plunges Kincaid and James into a labyrinth of dark lies and lethal secrets that stretches all the way back through the twentieth century—a death that most assuredly is murder, one that has altered Duncan Kincaid's world forever.

I didn't actually read the book. I listened to it. The narrator was changed for this audiobook. The previous audiobooks were done by Michael Deehy in a very posh English style that at first I found kind of pretentious but once I got used to him it was great. Then they switched to Jenny Sterlin and it was off putting at first. Since there are two main characters one male and one female it works out as the male narrators seem to do better with male characters and the female narrators with female characters. Not very often does an audiobook have multiple narrators but that would be awesome! Each of the Duncan Kincaid / Gemma James mysteries is not a standout mystery buy itself but I am really enjoying the development of the story between Duncan and Gemma as it flows through the books. These books/audiobooks definitely should be read or listened to in order.
This novel is full of poets, novelists and literary critics, and every chapter begins with an excerpt from a poem by Rupert Brooke. The setting is Cambridge, and the atmosphere very academic. The plot begins with a call to chief inspector Kincaid of Scotland Yard from his ex-wife Victoria. Vic is writing a biography of a minor woman poet, and she thinks the poet's death is suspicious - not suicide at all but murder.

This presents quite a challenge for Kincaid, who has no authority to open a closed case, and no jurisdiction in Cambridge. But the plot quickly gets more complicated and the likelihood of crime less speculative.

Relationships are the most interesting thing in the Crombie novels, and they get really interesting in this book. We have Kincaid's ongoing love affair with his female sergeant Gemma, and Kincaid's feelings for his ex-wife who left him years ago without a word. Suspects and victims also have tangled relationships, some dating back to the wild sixties. There are also fascinating connections between parents and children, some of them quite surprising.

The characters experience many shocks, requiring lots of strong, hot, sweet tea. Crombie's mysteries are very British, although the author is from Texas. I liked this novel the best of all the books I've read to date about the Kincaid-James investigative partnership. I'm now encouraged to continue with the series.
I picked up the series with this book. I fell in love with Gemma and Kincaid in this book. The mystery of a teenagers disappearance is the beginning of a tragedy that impacts the lives of the innocent as well as the guilty. Many twists and turns keep the plot moving at a very fast pace. I don't start their stories until I can read straight thru.
I generally avoid books written about the English police, but I happened to pick up Crombie's latest (Sound of Broken Glass) and got hooked on the author. This book give you a little history lesson about Duncan Kincaid and his first wife, Victoria, an English Professor who is writing a biography of a young poet who was thought to have committed suicide. Naturally, Duncan starts investigating the facts of the case with his partner, Gemma. Like all of Crombie's books, there are lots of twists and turns in the investigation, as well as in Duncan and Gemma's relationship. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy Crombie's writing. Every book is different, well researched and interesting. I'd highly recommend Dreaming of the Bones and any other Deborah Crombie novel.
I finished this book last night and I am so glad I began the series with the first book. The writer's skill with plot, character development and style
increases with each novel. I enjoy her descriptions as it is just enough to let my imagination finish it. I am looking forward to reading the
entire series and would recommend reading it in order for full enjoyment.
Dreaming of the Bones by Deborah Crombie
A bit of a departure from the earlier books in the series. It does not start with a murder or even a crime – but a phone call. Duncan’s ex-wife, Vic, calls him asking for help with a biography she is writing. The woman who walked out on him without a word, now needs his help. She believes the subject of her biography may have been murdered instead of committing suicide as originally ruled. Gemma is at first jealous and upset by Duncan meeting with and helping Vic.

It turns out that secrets galore surround not only the subject of the biography, but Vic herself. The end results might have lasting consequences for Duncan and Gemma.
I have read several of Deborah Crombie's mysteries featuring Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. I haven't read them in order, and I appreciated this background on Duncan's ex-wife Victoria and how Kit came into Duncan's and Gemma's lives. This is in an unusually complex mystery. In addition to Duncan and Gemma, the reader comes to understand the perspective of Vic, the subject of her biography, Lydia Brooke, and Kit, as well as several people whose lives intersect with theirs. The possible motives and suspects for an old and a new murder make the plot very involving. Another positive aspect of Crombie's mysteries is that--in contrast to many police procedurals--Crombie is generous with positive and supportive relationships among the characters. Highly recommended.
I love the series and can say I loved the book but like the title of my review the waters ran deep in this book and the poetry occasionally missed its mark with me. In fact the opening section had me befuddled enough that I almost did not persevere. That would have been a real loss because it is a great story. For those who have literary souls and love the language of poetry , this book will be richer for their understanding. For those of us not so inclined we are made richer by the opportunity to see through a poets eyes ...
It is good mystery and a good study in characters.... Enjoy!
