From Barnes & NobleWith Dreaming of the Bones, American Deborah Crombie achieves the depth she has been seeking with her four previous novels featuring Scotland Yard's Duncan Kincaid and his partner -- and now lover -- Gemma James. Set in Cambridge, the story involves several mysterious deaths, present and past, including the presumed suicide of poet Lydia Brooke. As a student in the '60s, Lydia claimed literal and spiritual kinship with legendary Edwardian poet Rupert Brooke. Excerpts from his poems -- many written during his Cambridge days -- head each chapter, adding poignancy to the layered story.
