"Chilling and humane....Skillful and subtle....A deeply moving novel that transcends genre."

-- Richmond Times Dispatch

A sinister mystery that leads all the way back to the Holocaust ensnares Scotland Yard detectives Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James in Where Memories Lie from award-winning "masterful novelist" (Denver Post) Deborah Crombie. A writer in the same elite class as Elizabeth George, Martha Grimes, and Anne Perry, Crombie mesmerizes with a story at once gripping and poignant that explores the dark places in the human heart, and the shadowy corners Where Memories Lie.

A German Jew, and a friend of Gemma, who fled Germany after WW II discovers a brooch in an auction house that her father made. After three murders and some long lost secrets, James and Kincaid track down the murder in a sting operation. It is a bit slow at the beginning until the back story unfolds. Also highlighted is Gemma's family, her sick mother, his somewhat stormy relationship with her father and Gemma comes to a big personal decision.
Worth reading but not my favorite Crombie novel.
