*This is an ARC I won via a goodreads giveaway* 5 Stars!

            Detective Inspector Gemma James and her partner Detective Sergeant Melody Talbot are investigating the murder of a barrister whose body was found in a very compromising position.  No matter if his death was accidental or more sinister they must find out who he spent the evening with.  Their investigation will lead them into lies and a circle of secrets kept for years that are still being protected. It’s inevitable to become personally involved in the case, meaning that relationships and careers could depend on them resolving the investigation.

This is the 15th book in this series but this is only the second that I have read.  The other was No Mark Upon Her which I also really enjoyed.  That being said, this would usually drive me a little nutty to not have read all of the previous novels but I don’t feel like I am missing out on anything.  Obviously I will read all of the previous books but I will honestly say that it wouldn’t make me feel differently.  I really like this series and Ms. Crombie has a new fan.

The characters are amazing!  They make me laugh and cry and I want to have a cup of coffee or tea with them.  I cannot wait for the next book to see what is going to happen to them now.  The plot is fantastic as well.  I tend to figure things out quickly but these books seem to keep me on my toes even if I have decided “who done it”.  I question my theory, which is a big deal for me when it comes to mysteries. 

I don’t have any complaints at all with this one except that now I have to wait for the next.  By now you know that I am going to recommend this one until I am blue in the face or until my fingertips are bleeding.
