Overview

Mourn Not Your Dead (Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James Series #4) by Deborah Crombie

An important and powerful policeman has been murdered, bludgeoned to death in his own kitchen. Few in suburban Surrey mourn the violent passing of Division Commander Alastair Gilbert, whose arrogance and cruelty were legendary in his village and in wider police circles -- which only makes the job of Scotland Yard investigators Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James more difficult. And as every discovery reveals another instance of misplaced trust, festering secrets, and murderous rage, they must put aside their own personal feelings for the victim -- and for each other -- in the name of justice and the law.

Stress! Gemma coming to terms with what she has with Duncan while solving a complex murder. It doesn't get any better than this. I love this series.

Good story with engaging mystery. Continued character development. It is understandable that Gemma would be hesitant to expand her relationship with Duncan, however her actions are perplexing. She treats Duncan poorly and her making him jealous with deveney makes no sense: she broke it off with him. The way Gemma treats Duncan you wonder why he continues to want her. Duncan seems to be a nice person, while Gemma is confused.

I enjoyed the story, but after a while I got a little tired of all the personal analyzing and examining of every motive for every action by any of the principal characters. I like to get to know the characters in a book, but this one was a bit much in that regard. I finally started skipping a few paragraphs here and there. And to be honest, I may have felt that way because this was the third novel in the series that I read in a weeks time. Maybe I was just sick of the characters. In my opinion however, this made the book drag on a bit too long. Still the story was a good one, with a somewhat unexpected ending. One thing that I am finding is often the case with Deborah Crombie's books, is that there is a slight uncertainty as to the fate of the villain at the end. This is a good thing if you are somewhat in sympathy with the "bad guy". On the other hand if you think he or she deserves punishment, this is a little disconcerting.
