Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Macavity Award-winner Crombie examines the corrupting nature of power in her riveting 14th novel featuring Scotland Yard Supt. Duncan Kincaid and Det. Insp. Gemma James.... Crombie gives an insightful look into British police procedures as well as a vivid view of the vagaries of London neighborhoods.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

...[R]eaders who savor excellent writing will find that Ms. Crombie delivers it again. (New York Journal of Books)

“Crombie is very talented at putting together a richly atmospheric whodunit.... [A]s a creator, she energetically inhabits the many strange worlds she shows her readers....” (Washington Post)

“Ms. Crombie again has turned out a gripping and nicely tailored mystery and added another chapter to her chronicle of Kincaid and Jones.” (Washington Times)

“No Mark Upon Her is again deserving of fans’ devotion due largely to her intelligent, subtle wit and above all, her meticulous attention to detail, from sculling equipment and competitive jealousy to a 3-year-old’s birthday party meltdown to the deep bond between a man and his dog.” (Miami Herald)

“Her writing is sophisticated and her suspense taut.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

[A] psychological thrill-ride that explores the allure of power, the pull of jealousy, and the seduction of greed. (The Tuscon Citizen)

This is a lovely, satisfying British police procedural with many relationship subplots that lend texture. (Suspense magazine)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Olympic rowing hopeful and senior Metropolitan Police officer DCI Rebecca Meredith goes out alone to train on the river in Henley on a dark afternoon in late October – and doesn’t return. When a desperate search by the police and a K9 team reveals the possibility of foul play, Scotland Yard wants one of their own on the case. Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid, returning from celebrating his marriage to long-time partner Detective Inspector Gemma James, is called to Henley to investigate. He soon finds that the world of elite rowing can be brutal, and that Rebecca Meredith’s ex-husband was not the only person with good reason for wanting her dead.

Then, when a search-and-rescue team member is threatened, Kincaid realizes the case may be even more complex and more dangerous than he believed. But it is only when he enlists Gemma’s aid that they find that the answers lie closer to home than they could have imagined – and are infinitely more deadly. It seems that more than one innocent life depends on their ability to track down the killer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deborah Crombie's Latest Success - No Mark Upon Her 4 août 2011
Par martísima - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was about to start rereading all 13 Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James novels in preparation for the 14th, "No Mark Upon Her". Alas, I got this one from the UK before I could get "restarted". I could not ignore it, and I dug unto it with gusto. I finished it in two days - all 468 pages (plus the two for acknowledgments).

The plot is topnotch, not predictable at all, and it starts getting faster an faster so that we cannot stop reading. It makes us feel as if we are in one of those shells, gliding along the Thames, and the current keeps taking us downstream forcefully.

The backdrop is the river, its bridges, its people. The core is really Duncan, Gemma, and Charlotte. Kit and Toby are their usual lovely selves. But then there's Charlotte, and she is special. She draws everyone to her and her favorite character, Alice (in Wonderland).

Surrounding a wedding, a birthday, Halloween, are real people, not puppets. We recall the ones from way back, but the "newcomers" are all very original and we remember them clearly.

And we also learn about the top guys in the Yard, and how they go to great lengths to protect each other, much to Kincaid's anger - but there is nothing he can do about it. At least, he was able to solve the mystery, even though he feels he has not done his best. He is left with some reconciliation, a two month leave, and he will now be in charge of the household.

Will Gemma be as successful as Duncan in the next novel? I, for one, am eagerly awaiting it. And now, I will go back and reread all 14 Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James novels!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting plot and even more interesting background 14 novembre 2016
Par J. A. Mine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I recommend this Kincaid/James mystery highly to fans of the series. If you've not followed this series, some of the family and relationship back stories will seem like padding, and that is why I give the book only 4 stars. The murder investigation plot of this book was quite excellent, in my opinion. Ms Crombie writes well.

I also learned a lot about the drive and training that pushes competitive rowers. The book was very well researched. I also thought the author's realistic description of how a police (or any) institution can be affected by "old boy" networks and a driving need to close ranks rather than admit to any flaws or weaknesses was a particular strength of this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautifully crafted story 10 février 2017
Par sharoncville - Publié sur Amazon.com

Crombie writes well crafted stories that draw the reader in right away. Her characters are consistent and believable-- you finish feeling like you know them. She has also.mastered the art of creating a long story arc with recurring characters that strikes an appropriate balance between keeping them internally consistent from book to book but avoids the trap that many (most) series authors fall into of requiring readers to read the entire series (in order, while memorizing certain details) in order to understand what is going on. I've read several of her books out of order and I feel confident that I could pick up any one and quickly get centered for that story. That is an under-appreciated skill and, to me, sets her apart as a thoughtful writer and excellent storyteller. In this book, she also immerses the reader in the odd, esoteric world of competitive rowing without getting lost in the details-- another hallmark of a careful writer. I enjoyed my visit to her characters' world and look forward to my next one!

Crombie always chooses a subject that I, for one, generally know nothing about--the narrowboats and canals still holding a part in England's history and heart, for example. Anyway, with almost every book I'm sent to Google to find out more about whatever she's chosen for that particular book. This time her theme was rowing and rowers. If you are not a rower yourself, but live anywhere never a school or club that sponsors rowing, you do yourelf a disservice if you don't ask the coach to take you out on the water in the launch when the crews are on the water. It is nothing short of a Zen experience. I can describe the beauty of a boat of 8 men or women with a coxain calling cadence, but it can never approach experiencing the wonder for yourself. As I said above, I loved this book. Not only because of the theme, but because of the beautifully develped characters; both old and new. If you don't bother to read another Crombie book, do yourself a favor and read this one.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 As boring as reality 7 mars 2017
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I found nothing to sustain my interest in this long, dull look into the messy family lives of two detectives. Frankly, it was altogether too much like a coffee break at work where people talk about their busy schedules and difficulty getting acceptable child care. Perhaps there are readers who thrive on realism to the point where they can't get enough of the mundane annoyances of daily life and have to seek out more of the same in their leisure reading; I am not one of them. As for the mystery, there was no suspense whatever and the solution was unexpected only because it involved characters introduced at the very end - which I consider not playing fair. None of the characters piqued my interest in any way and I found nothing "atmospheric" at all in this boring and pointlessly meandering examination of the ordinary.
