A SHARE IN DEATH

Deborah Crombie

Recommended by: Earnestine B

This is the first in the Superintendent Duncan and Sargent Gemma James series. Kinkaid is off on holiday at his cousin's time share. At the meet and greet cocktail party, he meets a young man working at the hotel. He finds himself liking his young man. Unfortuately, the next morning he finds the young man dead in the hotel's whirlpool bath.

Eventhough, he is on vacation, he is looking into the case much to the dislike of the local police. I like this series very much. I had read some of the latter books and decided to start  reading them from the first. If you like English Mysteries you will like this series.

The Complaints and Conduct Department are the cops who investigate other cops. Malcolm  Fox  works in this department and he likes it. He just finishes with a case when is  asked by another department to investigate another cop who is thought to be dirty but as yet no one has been able to prove it.  Malcolm not only has this case to work but a brutal murder comes close to home. This is a new series with Malcolm Fox. This author also has another series with Inspector John Rebus. If you enjoy police procedure and getting a taste of another country you should give these series a try.
