Series: Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James #5
Using poetry to solve a murder? Yes, please.
This book had off-the-hook character development. Excellent. To have that much happening and to not let the mystery fade into the background... Bravo!
This installment starts with Kincaid receiving a call from his ex-wife who wants him to look into the apparent suicide of a poet. Simple. Gemma and Kincaid begin to look into things and the story takes a startling, shocking turn. I did not expect it- and the subsequent reveals after were just as good.
This is not a series you can just pick up and read out of order. Each mystery builds on the previous ones. I will definitely be continuing with this series.
