Duncan Kincaid of Scotland Yard finds himself the beneficiary of his cousin's generous gift of a week's vacation at a Yorkshire time share. Then the bodies start piling up. Kincaid finds himself struggling with an obnoxious local policeman as well the regard and affection he had for the victims. This book has the elements needed for a good read, a few red herrings and well-developed characters. It's a good start to a new series for me, and a good book for a rainy day. If you enjoy Elizabeth George's Lynley series, you'll probably enjoy this one. Kincaid's sergeant is Gemma James (always like the name Gemma--so British!) and they are still figuring out their work relationship. But this doesn't have the same amount of class angst as the Lynley books and Kincaid isn't as whiny as Lynley became (don't get me started on the wife!).
