Book Review – Leave the Grave Green

Leave the Grave GreenLeave the Grave Green by Deborah Crombie

Deborah Crombie has filled the Agatha Christie-sized hole that was left in my life when I finished the final Hercule Poirot novel. Ms. Crombie’s novels are set in modern times but are also thoroughly British and excellent police procedural mysteries. “Leave the Grave Green” is the third book featuring Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. Unlike Christie’s Poirot & his side-kicks, Ms. Crombie’s protagonists have been changing and growing throughout her series. It is one of the main reasons that her books are so compelling to me. Her characters are believable and appealing. The mystery elements are formulaic but that doesn’t bother me having tore through 40+ Poirot novels over the course of a couple years. I apologize in advance if this blog becomes clogged with Deborah Crombie mystery novels, I’ll do my best to space them out. 🙂
