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.

A missing girl. A group of Cambridge flower children (circa 1965) who remain amazingly close long after graduation. A Scotland Yard investigator contacted by the ex-wife who left him without even a note 12 years earlier, and asked to help her prove that poet Lydia Brooke's "suicide" was murder. Multi-layers to this gripping mystery as well as a fabulous setting -- the gentle countryside just outside Cambridge where tourists still come to remember tragic WWI poet, Rupert Brooke.

Duncan's ex-wife calls him to ask him to look into the death of a poet whose biography she's writing. At first I was bored as I listened to this but then something happened that grabbed my attention. A bit of tension between Duncan and Gemma at first over the ex but then a bombshell as something happens that will change their lives forever. I ended up liking this book quite a lot.
