Publisher's Summary

When Superintendant Duncan Kincaid takes Gemma, Kit, and Toby to visit his family in Cheshire, Gemma is soon entranced with Nantwich town's pretty buildings and the historic winding canal, and young Kit is instantly smitten with his cousin Lally.

But their visit is marred when, on Christmas Eve, Duncan's sister discovers a mummified infant's body interred in the wall of an old dairy barn - a tragedy hauntingly echoed by the recent drowning of Peter Llewellyn, a schoolmate of Lally's.

Meanwhile, on her narrowboat, former social worker Annie Lebow is living a life of self-imposed isolation, preparing for a lonely Christmas, made more disturbing by an unexpected meeting earlier in the day.

As the police make enquiries into the infant's death, Kincaid discovers that life in the lovely town of his childhood is far from idyllic, and that the dreaming reaches of the Shropshire Union Canal hold dark and deadly secrets...

    "Great mystery novel"
    What did you love best about Water Like a Stone?

    The characters are very rich with both a personal a professional side.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gemma James. I like her because she is not perfect. She has doubts, she is not always sure of what to do but keeps on going


    Which character – as performed by Gordon Griffin – was your favorite?

    Duncan kincaid is wonderfully narrated by Gordon Griffin.


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

    The moments where Gemma feels ignored as a professional but realizes that it is not the moment to protest


    Any additional comments?

    I think that all the series is very worth reading, The plot is always good and you get to love the characters and their everyday life
