    "First story by this author I didn't like"
    What would have made A Finer End better?

    The story was too long and the subject matter too ethereal and unbelievable. Ive enjoyed her other novels; won't fault her a blip.

    Story
    "Only bad read I've seen from this author"

    I love the lead series characters but they're barely in sight for the first 3 hours which go on and on and on about characters in Glastonbury who are mainly rather tiresome. And sadly even the leads Duncan and Gemma (sp?) do little to relieve the boredom when they do appear on scene. I guess I've given up on this one.

    "My favorite, a wonderful story!"
    What did you love best about A Finer End?

    This book has a touch of the sort of story Phil Rickman writes in his Merrily Watkins mysteries, which I love. Great characters and complex plot.

    "Crombie delivers"

    The Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series consistently provides a story worth hearing and characters you enjoy knowing and want to know better. A Finer End is a great place to start or to deepen your acquaintance with this pair of detectives who are such real people that you want them for friends.
