9780061287541: Necessary as Blood (Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James Novels)

Once the haunt of Jack the Ripper, London’s East End is a vibrant mix of history and new ideas, but the trendy galleries of Brick Lane disguise a seedy underside where unthinkable crimes bring terror to the innocent.

Artist and young mother Sandra Gilles disappears without trace after leaving her three-year-old daughter, Charlotte, with a friend at the Columbia Road Flower Market. Her lawyer husband, Naz Malik, is devastated – but he’s also the prime suspect in a murder investigation. When Naz vanishes shortly afterwards, Gemma James and her partner Superintendent Duncan Kincaid agree to work together again to solve the case before the murderer can get his hands on the real prize, Charlotte.

But just as the case grows more dangerous, a personal issue threatens to throw Gemma and Duncan off the trail. In the end, it is up to them to stop a vicious killer and protect the child whose fate hangs in the balance.

Review:

'Clever, well-written and atmospheric police procedural... the London setting - partly in Notting Hill but principally in and around Brick Lane - is extremely well described, as is the melting pot of cockneys, immigrants and rich newcomers in both areas; Crombie is also very good at cultural clashes and family dynamics.' --Literary Review

About the Author:

Necessary as Blood is Deborah Crombie’s thirteenth novel. Her Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James detective series have been nominated for the Agatha, Macavity and Edgar Awards. She lives with her family in a small north Texas town.
