Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James are sent to suburban Surrey to investigate the murder of a high-ranking police officer. Alastair Gilbert was bludgeoned to death in his kitchen, and the list of potential suspects is long. The man’s arrogance earned him widespread enmity both in the village where he lived and in police circles. But Duncan and Gemma must put aside their personal feelings—for the victim, as well as for each other—to solve the most troubling case either has faced.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The setting and characters are well drawn.” Kirkus Reviews
“Sergeant Gemma James and Superintendent Duncan Kincaid reappear in this finely tuned procedural that moves between the tidy village of Holmbury St. Mary and the gritty streets of London…Ongoing complications in the evolving relationship between James and Kincaid add depth to the proceedings. With her meticulously, affectionately drawn cast, Crombie is closely attentive to every facet of the tiny village and demonstrates that if country life is clannish and inbred, the small world of the police force is much the same.” Publishers Weekly
“Combining subtle emotional nuances and psychological insights with a thorough knowledge of the intricacies of police procedure, author Deborah Crombie produces another powerful contemporary mystery in the classic tradition. Mourn Not Your Dead is a compelling page-turner of a mystery thriller!” Midwest Book Review
“The three things that make Deborah Crombie’s books about a pair of Scotland Yard detectives so fascinating are the way the relationship between Superintendent Duncan Kinkaid and Sergeant Gemma James is constantly—and believably—changing, the meticulously researched and impeccably presented details of British police procedure, and the fact that the superb chronicler behind these multilayered tales of British society is a native Texan and current resident of a small town near Dallas. This fourth entry in Crombie’s excellent series sends the gently raised, intellectual Kinkaid and the tougher, more abrasive James out after the killer of a much-unloved senior policeman in suburban Surrey.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“With only slight shadings in timbre, narrator Michael Deehy creates an entire village of plausible suspects. His authentic accents clarify class distinctions; in fact, his wholly absorbing reading makes even the description of a drapery design seem important. This 1996 addition to Crombie’s exceptional series offers intense plotting, meticulous diction, and convincing insights into British sensibilities. Add to that a tour-de-force performance by Deehy and listeners have an experience to savor.” AudioFile
“Crombie keeps this series on its toes with her smooth procedural techniques and engagingly eccentric characters.” New York Times Book Review
“A compelling page-turner of a mystery thriller!” Midwest Book Review
“Offers intense plotting, meticulous diction, and convincing insights into British sensibilities. Add to that a tour-de-force performance by Deehy and listeners have an experience to savor.” AudioFile
