Publisher Comments:

It is the call Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid never expected—and one he certainly doesn't want. Victoria, his ex-wife, who walked out without an explanation more than a decade ago, asks him to look into the suicide of local poet, Lydia Brooke—a case that's been officially closed for five years. The troubled young writer's death, Victoria claims, might well have been murder.

No one is more surprised than Kincaid himself when he agrees to investigate—not even his partner and lover, Sergeant Gemma James. But it's a second death that raises the stakes and plunges Kincaid and James into a labyrinth of dark lies and lethal secrets that stretches all the way back through the twentieth century—a death that most assuredly is murder, one that has altered Duncan Kincaid's world forever.

Synopsis:

After twelve years, the last person Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid expects to hear from is his ex-wife Victoria. But this is no social call.

In her biographical research on troubled poet Lydia Brooke, Vic has uncovered reasons to believe Lydia's death five years ago was not suicide. Much to Kincaid's surprise — and the unease of his partner and lover, Sergeant Gemma James — he finds he can't refuse Vic's request to look into the long-closed case.

The police report raises questions, but not enough to reopen the investigation — until a second death occurs, this one clearly murder. Now Duncan and Gemma must sift through a tangle of relationships, secrets, and lies to find not just a killer, but a secret which will change their own lives forever.

Synopsis:

A biographer asks Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma Jones to help her prove that a talented poet did not commit suicide, but was murdered. Kincaid and Jones are soon led into an engrossing history of poetry and scandal, found secrets and lost innocence.
