Product Description:

Scotland Yard detectives Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James are drawn into separate investigations that hold disturbing—and deadly—complications for their own lives in this powerful mystery in the bestselling series.

On a beautiful morning in mid-May, the body of a young woman is found in one of Notting Hill’s private gardens. To passersby, the pretty girl in the white dress looks as if she’s sleeping. But Reagan Keating has been murdered, and the lead detective, DI Kerry Boatman, turns to Gemma James for help. She and Gemma worked together on a previous investigation, and Gemma has a personal connection to the case: Reagan was the nanny of a child who attends the same dance studio as Toby, Gemma and Kincaid’s son.

Gemma soon discovers that Reagan’s death is the second tragedy in this exclusive London park; a few months before, a young boy died in a tragic accident. But when still another of the garden residents meets a violent end, it becomes clear that there are more sinister forces at play. Boatman and Gemma must stop the killer before another innocent life is taken.

While his wife is consumed with her new case, Kincaid finds himself plagued by disturbing questions about several previous—and seemingly unrelated—cases involving members of the force. If his suspicions are correct and the crimes are linked, are his family and friends in mortal danger as well? Kincaid’s hunch turns to certainty when a Metropolitan Police officer close to him is brutally attacked. There’s a traitor in the ranks, and now Kincaid wonders if he can trust anyone.

As Gemma begins to see a solution to her case, she realizes she holds a child’s fate in her hands. Can she do the right thing? And can Kincaid rely on his friends, both inside and outside the Scotland Yard force, to stand beside him as he faces the deadliest challenge of his career?



Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid has accepted his transfer begrudgingly, moving on to a new office and boss, and making the best of an unsatisfactory situation. When Kincaid is drawn back to the recent past by a series of unsettling and seemingly linked events, he is determined to get to the bottom of this utterly tangled web.

In the meantime, his wife Gemma finds herself in the midst of the death of her friend’s part-time nanny, strictly in a civilian, unofficial role. That role quickly shifts to investigating officer, as it is soon clear that the nanny was murdered. Gemma’s instincts are as sharp as ever, and that’s a good thing, as it is by instinct that she will solve this troubling case.

In the meantime, Kincaid and Gemma are both forced to more directly examine not only their jobs and their impact on their family, but the impact that their current investigations, particularly Kincaid’s, is having on their marriage. Having a police officer in a marriage can be complicated, but when both partners are detectives, complicated doesn’t begin to describe the balance of work, family and life.

Gemma and Kincaid work parallel yet unrelated cases throughout Garden of Lamentations, and each case is at turns the melody that underscores the novel. Kincaid’s case reaches back over twenty years, threading evil tentacles that still grasp and threaten now, while Gemma’s case is contemporary, fresh and believingly relevant as well. While the plot shifts from case to case, it is the Kincaid-James family that is the constant, and by the end of the story readers will definitely wonder where Gemma and Duncan will find themselves next!

Garden of Lamentations is an excellent read, two well-plotted and well-written mysteries in one book that was difficult to put down.
