"A week's holiday in a luxurious Yorkshire time-share is just what Scotland Yard's Superintendent Duncan Kincaid needs. But the discovery of a body floating in the whirlpool bath ends Kincaid's vacation before it's begun. One of his new acquaintances at Followdale House is dead; another is a killer. Despite a distinct lack of cooperation from the local constabulary, Kincaid's keen sense of duty won't allow him to ignore the heinous crime, impelling him to send for his enthusiastic young assistant, Sergeant Gemma James. But the stakes are raised dramatically when a second murder occurs, and Kincaid and James find themselves in a determined hunt for a fiendish felon who enjoys homicide a bit too much."--BOOK COVER.

Thoroughly enjoyed this first of Crombie's Kincaid and James series. Kincaid tries to take a vacation, he really does, but foul play dogs him even to a time-share. More than one person end up in danger and with the local police being rather prickly, Kincaid's trying to solve the case without actually being on the case. His police partner, Gemma James, takes a break from her 'vacation' of staying home and doing laundry to help Kincaid with some background work and interviews. She shows up at the time-share just in time to help capture the culprit.

This first novel in the Kincaid & James series follows all the rules of the mystery genre. The violence is behind the scene and the language would be considered clean.
