Perhaps it is a blessing when Jasmine Dent dies in her sleep. At long last an end has come to the suffering of a body horribly ravaged by disease. It may well have been suicide; she had certainly expressed her willingness to speed the inevitable. But small inconsistencies lead her neighbor, Superintendent Duncan Kincaid of Scotland Yard, to a startling conclusion: Jasmine Dent was murdered. But if not for mercy, why would someone destroy a life already so fragile and doomed? As Kincaid and his capable and appealing assistant Sergeant Gemma James sift through the dead woman's strange history, a troubling puzzle begins to take shape -- a bizarre amalgam of good and evil, of charity and crime . . . and of the blinding passions that can drive the human animal to perform cruel and inhuman acts.

Duncan Kincaid with the help of Gemma James investigate the death of his neighbor Jasmine. Is it murder, natural or suicide? The suspects include a downstairs friend, Jasmine's brother, or the home nurse and her boyfriend. It takes a long time to establish the motive. We also learn about Duncan and Gemma, their evolving relationship and their personal lives. A simple plot, a quick read and a satisfying novel. Onto the next one by Crombie.
