    A week's holiday in a luxurious hotel is just what Scotland Yard's Superintendent Duncan Kincaid needs. But his vacation ends dramatically with the discovery of a dead body in the whirlpool bath. Despite a suspicious 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 significantly when a second murder occurs....

    What did you love best about A Share in Death?

    This is my first Crombie book, and let there be no doubt, I want more.The voice and performance of the narrator have me seeing Duncan clearly in, "my mind,s eye." I admire the cool, calm, often restrained person this character presents. His intellegence is a magnet for me.Deborah Crombie's writing style suits me very well. The language is adult and doesn't leave you wondering about her meaning. The writing and story flows.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not exactly, but it kept me guessing and getting it wrong often. There were truly some surprises.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Duncan putting the local detective in his place after listening to snide, disrespectful comments from the moment they met. I enjoyed the attraction and apparent respect the main character and the doctor had for one another, and could picture him sitting in the kitchen as she cooked.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    More than one. I was touched by the way Duncan interacted with the children, and the teenager. The main character explaining that each of us are significant and made so by our dreams, actions, and accomplishments.


    Any additional comments?

    I plan on listening to the series and am fearful that having a different reader will cause me not to enjoy the books if Mr Deehy is not narrating. If there is one thing I would ask of the author, it would be: to give us a bit more humor.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    Story

    My heart aches at the fact that Larsson is no longer with us. This book is as exciting and intriguing as the first two. The hero is relentless in pursuing the truth yet, he is not, "perfect." The lady sporting that tattoo is extremely smart, and aggravating at the same time. The way that the many characters come together is simply great. Some of the technical issues become a bit, "heavy." I'd find myself thinking that this author was brilliant!
    A fantastic story that I am truly missing.
