Mourn Not Your Dead book. The mysteries have been well and interestingly plotted, peopled with wonderfully drawn, original characters. But that is not to say they are simply good mysteries. They are something more. Each of them, it seems to me, uses the genre to explore central themes. Mourn Not Your Dead" is really a book about feminism.

One of my guilty pleasures is reading mysteries. I particularly like those in a series as the main character(s) return for each installment and I enjoy watching their stories develop. Having a focus on characters and location, in addition to the mystery, also keep things interesting. These books by Deborah Crombie are what "cozy" mysteries were before the genre was taken over by the schlocky and formulaic books so often published currently. They offer fun, enjoyable reads without a lot of blood or violence and yet aren't total fluff either.

In this installment, everything you need for a good read is here: characters which are likeable but complex, a setting that lends itself to the reader getting comfy (think reading chair with a hot or cold drink easily at hand), and a mystery that keeps you reading to find out "who-dun-it". After four books, I have come to depend on Ms. Crombie to provide a purely entertaining read without blood or gore and one which will encourage me to continue on to the next book once this is finished. She delivered on this one and I have already downloaded Dreaming of the Bones. My only real complaint relates to one of the mysteries not being solved (or acknowledged it wasn't) by the end of the book. Hopefully, that little hanging tidbit will get resolved next time out.
At the end of this book Gemma actually says that it feels like she and Kincaid have spent the entire book (well, this case) "coming and going in cars". You will read A LOT about driving, roads, traffic, and so on in the book.

You will also read a lot -- really an amazing amount -- about food, interior decoration, landscapes and cityscapes, and drinking cups of tea. And also watch Kincaid and Gemma winnow their way through dozens of suspects until Kincaid finally detects the real killer and gets him / her to confess, aka explain how he/she did it, why, and tie up all the loose ends. And, because Ms Crombie made the decision to have her series also involve a romance, to see how THAT comes along.

These are the coziest of cozy mysteries. When you have a Villain who drugs the family dog rather than killing it, you are definitely in cozy mystery land.

Don't get me wrong; I am really enjoying listening to this series so far. Rigorously Righteous Detective Superintendant Duncan Kincaid and his partner / lover (?) Detective Sgt Gemma James always have a moment at the end of the book when the real killer has confessed and Gemma pulls Kincaid aside and she says "Guv, she / he has only done what ANYONE would do," and Kincaid lectures her along the lines of "But no, Gemma, we are talking about The Law here and that's a line we must never cross. No, love, we must take him / her in to be charged", etc. Of course, since no confession in these books is ever preceded by a caution (just like being read your Miranda rights in the US, in Britain the subject must be cautioned as to his right to be silent, to have a lawyer present, etc -- in other words, all the cautionary advice specifically designed to prevent the unwary suspect from making the confession which DS Kincaid has figured out the best way to manipulate the suspect into making -- and there is always a moment where Kincaid realizes that yep, our suspect is going to fall for it and "he relaxes"...) all of these cases would be thrown out before there would even BE a charge.

But that's the territory of a police procedural, and that's not what I want. (Although I am curious to see if Ms Crombie ever figures this out.) I love watching the befuddled Kincaid and James eat, not eat (there are always several growling stomachs in each book, which I'm sure I mainly notice because I'm hearing the narrative), hike, agonize over their relationship, and basically notice and describe every damn thing, which is only endurable because Crombie is such a good writer, and of course drive around in cars.

But none of that is a problem, although I'm sure if I were reading I'd be skipping pages, because things can get pretty slow.

The main thing here is whether and how Gemma and Kincaid are going to get together and stay together. And because, hey, I love a good cozy mystery, and so far these are some of the best.
This installment of Deboarh Crombie's Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James mysteries definitely held my interest. However, I agree with some of the other reviewers who found this one weaker than many of the other Kincaid/James outings. I agree that it is slower--there is too much driving back and forth, and lots of time spent sitting with food and drink of various sorts. As several reviewers noted, one important crime remains unsolved; Kincaid and James do not even sum up that situation at the end of the book, which I found out of character. On the other hand, Crombie creates an interesting village with a variety of interesting characters, many of whom are plausible suspects for the murder of the victim who is not mourned. (This is one of the few Crombie mysteries that has a distinctive title that clearly relates to the crime.) The evolution of the relationship of Kincaid and James is interesting, but--again, like other reviewers--I was disappointed that only James seems to question the appropriateness of a romantic relationship between superior and subordinate. Crombie has created Kincaid as a character with modern sensibilities; as such, he should show more awareness of the power differential and the reasons behind prohibitions on such relationships.
