When a search-and-rescue team discovers a woman's body in the river, Scotland Yard superintendent Duncan Kincaid finds himself heading an investigation fraught with complications. The victim, Rebecca Meredith, was a talented but difficult woman with many admirers--and just as many enemies. An Olympic contender on the verge of a controversial comeback, she was also a high-ranking detective with the Met--a fact that raises a host of political and ethical issues.
To further complicate things, a separate investigation, led by Detective Inspector Gemma James, Kincaid's wife, soon reveals a disturbing, possibly related, series of crimes, widening the field of suspects. But when someone tries to kill the search-and-rescue team member who found the body, the case becomes even more complex and dangerous.
Surrounded by enemies with friendly faces, pressured to find answers quickly while protecting the Yard at all costs, his career and reputation on the line, Kincaid must race to catch the killer before more innocent lives are lost--including his own.
"Crombie keeps this series on its toes with her smooth procedural techniques and engagingly eccentric characters."
--New York Times Book Review
"Seamlessly British murder mystery in the tradition of P.D. James and Barbara Vine."
--San Antonio Express-News
New York Times Notable author Deborah Crombie is regularly named among the greats of British-set crime fiction (P.D. James, Ruth Rendell, Elizabeth George et al) for her riveting police procedurals featuring Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James, Scotland Yard partners as well as devoted life-mates. A brilliantly conceived and executed, deeply atmospheric mystery, No Mark Upon Her embroils Kincaid and James in the case of the puzzling drowning of a rower, a Met detective, on the Thames. A finely-hued and twisting tale of psychological suspense--a story rich in deadly secrets, salacious lies, and unexpected betrayals--No Mark Upon Her is everything Crombie's fans have come to expect from this exceptional writer...and more.
