Garden of Lamentations is installment 17 in the Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James series. This book focuses on continuing the case Duncan was involved in from the previous book involving the death of an undercover officer and his relationship with his supervisor. For Gemma, the book concerns the murder of a nanny in a literally closed in community, houses sharing a walled garden. Gemma is initially involved not as an officer but through community relationships and then gets put on the case. The subplots involve Gemma and Duncan’s family life including their children and pets, friends and Duncan’s parents. I felt this was one of the better ones in the series of the recent books and I am really looking forward to the next one A Bitter Feast, which is due out on October 8th.
