Summary, etc.: The disappearance of a young mother, the murder of her Pakistani husband, and a child's life in danger lead Scotland Yard detectives Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid into London's legendary East End--a neighborhood where the rich and the poor, the ambitious and the dangerous, collide--to solve one of the most challenging and disturbing cases they've ever faced.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2009 September #1
    Enriched by chapter heads from novels and sociological studies that track the modern-day evolution of London's East End community, Crombie's latest Kincaid and James crime story is as rich in its picture of cultural and racial flux as it is in its framework of family dynamics. Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and his investigative partner and significant other Sergeant Gemma James once again put their personal issues on hold to investigate an odd case that has left a sweet, young toddler an orphan. When little Charlotte's mother, a presumably happily married textile artist, leaves her beloved child with a friend one day and never returns, her husband is devastated, and rumors circulate about the stability of the couple's mixed-race marriage. Later, when the husband is brutally murdered, Duncan and Emma turn again to the mystery of the vanished woman to find clues to the husband's killer. As much about finding a good home for the child as it is about solving a crime, this latest in Crombie's series tells a subtle and moving character-driven story. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
