Scotland Yard Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and his partner Sergeant Gemma James return in another spellbinding novel of mysteries--one contemporary, one ancient--an investigation that will challenge them personally and professionally as no case ever has. From the award-winning author of the acclaimed Kissed a Sad Goodbye...


When Duncan Kincaid’s cousin Jack calls from Glastonbury to ask for his help on a rather unusual matter, Duncan welcomes the chance to spend a relaxing weekend outside of London with Gemma--but relaxation isn’t on the agenda. Glastonbury is revered as the site of an ancient abbey, the mythical burial place of King Arthur and Guinevere, and a source of strong druid power. Jack has no more than a passing interest in its history--until he comes across an extraordinary chronicle almost a thousand years old. The record reveals something terrible and bloody shattered the abbey’s peace long ago--knowledge that will spark violence that reaches into the present. Soon it is up to Duncan and Gemma to find the truth the local police cannot see. But no one envisions the peril that lies ahead--or that there is more at stake than they ever dreamed possible.

From the Paperback edition.

Glastonbury and "A Finer End".
June 28th, 2015
I first went to Glastonbury on a high school field trip. Even then it was as magical or more so as the ancient seat of pagan/Christian Britain as Deborah Crombie encapsulates it in her rivetting crime novel with Duncan and Gemma at the helm. The clarity of her writing is infused with deeply held humanity that makes this novel as compellingly spell binding as all of her other works.

A Finer End

Deborah Crombie has done it again. She spun a tale that left me reeling from one suspect to another. Setting her story on Glastonbury was particularly fascinating as I had been there several years ago. The spirit of long age and deep contentment filled her book just as it did the ruins of the abbey. What a great read!
