Gemma James is adjusting to professional and personal changes—and a future now intricately entwined with Duncan Kincaid. But her new responsibilities are put to the test when she is placed in charge of a particularly brutal homicide: The lovely young wife of a wealthy antiques dealer has been found murdered on fashionable Notting Hill. The main focus of Gemma’s investigation is Karl Arrowood, who had the most powerful motive for killing his unfaithful wife. But this case sets off warning bells for Duncan: It’s far too similar to a recent unsolved murder in which an another person was killed in precisely the same way. And when the escalating violence claims yet another victim, he and Gemma find themselves at increasing odds with each other—as two separate investigations become linked in the most startling of ways. Their hunt for a killer will traverse the teeming stalls of the city’s antiques markets to a decades-in-the-making vendetta of history and hatred that has been honed to a flawless, deadly point. To solve this case, Gemma and Duncan must walk a merciless razor’s edge through a place where true justice will be a long time coming.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Crombie is adept at layering character with police work and keeping the ongoing plot up to date.” Toronto Globe and Mail
“As usual, Crombie handles a complicated plot with style, providing enough twists and turns to hold the reader’s attention while driving the narrative to a stunning conclusion.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“A clever police procedural as well as an exciting relationship drama.” Midwest Book Review
“A supremely satisfying…Essential for mystery lovers.” Library Journal
“Fearful of igniting a new Jack the Ripper-style panic, Duncan and Gemma soon find themselves at odds when their investigations become linked in startling, unexpected ways, culminating in an exciting denouement with serious undercurrents. Crombie keeps the action moving throughout.” Publishers Weekly
“As much a splendid depiction of London’s Notting Hill Road district as it is a harrowing murder mystery. Crombie weaves the café and pub owners and the stall keepers in Notting Hill Market into the story, giving it a feeling of groundedness that many contemporary mysteries lack.” Booklist
“Anglophiles will cheer the sociological evocation of the changing London neighborhood, and there’s plenty of justice, despite the title.” Kirkus Reviews
“Michael Deehy has narrated earlier books in this series and has a firm grasp of the characters. Over several books, we come to know these people; Deehy’s sensitive characterizations help make them our old friends. Deehy is particularly good at conveying emotion and states of being-tired characters sound tired, peevish characters sound peevish. If this is new territory, you’ll be hooked; if you know the series, welcome back.” AudioFile

Excellent Narration

My new favorite contemporary mysteries are Deborah Combie's police procedurals set in London starring Scotland Yard's chief inspector Duncan Kincaid and assistant Gemma James. "And Justice There Is None" is one of three I listened to in quick succession because I enjoyed them so much. I like the mix of police investigation and realistic home life and people relationships. I appreciate how the author creates the seemingly true-to-life in-depth backstory of all the characters involved. But probably the best part of it all is hearing Michael Deehy narrate the story. Although I do read paperbacks, I figure why sit with a book when you can go anywhere and let an excellent British reader tell the story to you with all the authentic English, Scottish, Irish, and American accents added in. I highly recommend "And Justice There Is None" as well as "A Share in Death" and "In a Dark House."
