Fast-paced. Enjoyable story

A little bit more of a cozy than I thought it would be. I still enjoyed it but I am not a huge fan of the cozy mystery. If you are you might like it more.

I suffered slightly by not having read the preceding book - much of the interaction between Duncan and Gemma is fall out from the clearly having slept together, but how many times and how far their relationship had gone is unknown, but the story starts with her deciding to shut the relationship down.[return][return]Meanwhile, they get called out to investigate the murder of a commander in the Met, found bludgeoned to death in his kitchen, and the investigations start. Overall a good procedural
