My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The past and the present intermingle in this mystery making for a plot line that will keep you on the edge of your seats!
The Sound of Broken Glass is #15 in Deborah Crombie's Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James series and even though I have never read any of the other books belonging to this series for about 90% of the book I felt in the loop and would mark this as also a great stand alone read but there was that 10% of the book that left me confused particularly about Duncan and Gemma's family situation especially in regards to their foster daughter Charlotte. This 10% had me wishing I had read the previous books in the series.
Which leads me to let you in on a little tidbit in case you have never read any of the books from this series and that tidbit is that Duncan and Gemma are not partners in the police sense they are husband and wife. When I first read "A Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James Mystery" at the bottom of the book I assumed and I was wrong but maybe they were originally partners, oh goodness as I am sitting hear telling you what I think I am actually intriguing myself about the characters lives before book #15; looks like I will be adding quite a few books to my Goodreads list tonight!
The book had a wonderful fast paced story line and I thoroughly enjoyed this book with the only downside being that 10% of feeling a bit confused about some of the characters relationships with one another.
I am giving this book a 4-star rating even though for awhile there I was contemplating a 3-star review because of that darn 10%; but the weaving of details from the shadows of the past with the dangerous dealings of the present made up for that lousy 10%.
