review: NO MARK UPON HER: A NOVEL by Deborah Crombie

Filed in Gather Books Essential by on April 8, 2012 0 Comments


Although NO MARK UPON HER: A NOVEL by Deborah Crombie is the 14th in a series, it’s the first book by Crombie that I read, and I really enjoyed it. Obviously, it can stand alone. But, although I don’t feel like I missed information vital to this story, I’m now anxious to read the previous 13.

No Mark Upon Her (Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James, #14)

This takes place in England and centers on the murder of an Olympic-class rower and Met detective, Becca Meredith. She was a difficult person, loved by some, hated by others. And those people all had roles in this story. Plus, there were Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid, who investigates the case and who the series is based on, and dogs.

NO MARK UPON HER is the best kind of mystery/suspense novel. It has many twists and turns, and it keeps the reader guessing until nearly the end. Just when you think you have solved the cases (yes, there’s more than just Meredith’s murder), something else comes up.

I highly recommend NO MARK UPON HER and thank for it.
