    Pushing the series forward

    This is a series best read in order, as the personal development of Inspector Kincaid and Gemma James is integral to all of Crombie's novels. As a long time reader, I found it it a relief to see these characters get their heads together after taking turns at severe relationship anxiety. Well plotted, the novel moves smoothly back and forth between investigation of a modern crime and flashbacks to the roots of that crime in the period surrounding World War I. Crombie's period detail is always admirable, and this is no exception.

    wonderful investigative thriller

    David and Erika Rosenthal escaped from Nazi Germany during WWII. They settled in London where she became a professor and he a philosopher until he was murdered in 1952 while investigating neo Nazi sympathizers his homicide remains an unsolved cold case. Erika is stunned when family friend Henri Durrell shows her a diamond brooch in a Harrowby¿s auction catalogue because they recognize the name and the picture as hers, lost, probably stolen, years ago.------- Erika asks her friend Police Inspector Gemma James to investigate Gemma and her Scotland Yard partner Duncan Kincaid activate the cold case to investigate how the brooch got to the auction house. However the case is already odd as auction house clerk Kristin Cahill died in a mysterious hit and run. Soon others involved in the sale also die as the cops know WWII, 1952, and the present tie together but struggle with finding the culprit anyway.---------------- This is an exciting English police procedural filled with growing tension from the moment a distraught Erika calls Gemma. The story line is fast-paced even when the plot flashbacks to 1952 focusing on David¿s inquiries into Neo-Nazis. Sub-genre fans will appreciate this strong tale as Deborah Crombie provides a wonderful investigative thriller.-------- Harriet Klausner

    Great mystery series!!!

    Although I have just begun reading this particular book, "Where Memories Lie", I have read all of the preceding books of the series. I have enjoyed the series tremendously and I would recommend these books to anyone who likes a good mystery in the form of a classic "who done it".
