Newly appointed Detective Inspector Gemma James has never thought to question her friend Hazel Cavendish about her past. And the fires of a fierce and passionate affair may not have burned out completely - on Brodie's part at least, since he's prepared to destroy Hazel's marriage to win back his Juliet. But when a sudden, brutal murder unleashes a slew of sinister secrets and long-seething hatreds, putting Hazel's life in peril, Gemma knows she will need help unraveling this very bloody knot - and calls for the one man she trusts more than any other, Duncan Kincaid, to join her far from hom. nd in harm's way.

Now May You Weep is the ninth in a series of 13 novels Crombie has written since 1993 about the Scotland Yard duo of Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. The two are sleuths who live together with his son, her son, two personable dogs, and an indifferent cat in a fashionable London neighborhood. Like every other novel in its series, I found Now May You Weep to be engrossing and difficult to set aside.

Deborah Crombie was born and educated in Texas. After living in both England and Scotland, she wrote her first Duncan Kincaid, Gemma James novel. She has since been nominated for the Agatha, Macavity and Edgar Awards and is published across the world. Deborah lives with her family in a small North Texas town and frequently visits the UK. Now May You Weep is her ninth novel in her Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series.

I have been reading the series from the start and as is usually the case with these prolific authors, the quality slowly goes downhill as they constantly meet publishing deadlines. This series has slowly morphed from a police procedural bent to more of a police based soap opera. The depth of narrative about all the characters and their relationships has almost over shadowed the mystery plot. Fine for some, but not my cup of tea....I could not finish this last one and will discontinue the series....

In this book (number 9 in the series) the author moves away from London and the English countryside to the Highlands of Scotland. Brilliantly researched as usual - the reader feels at home in Scotland with Deborah Crombie's descriptive narrative and of course her outstanding ability to have the characters just leap off the page!
A complex plot utilising the author's favourite technique of delving into the past generations to explain the angst of the current descendants. A little too much like a "romantic thriller" rather than a crime mystery perhaps. Some readers may be a tad disappointed to see some of their most likeable characters from earlier books going through very hard times - but Deborah Crombie seems to delight in dragging we readers back into reality rather than wallowing in too much pleasant fantasy about life as we may like it to be.
The conclusion is as expected from all her books - very satisfying with all the loose ends nicely tied up.

Go figure: one of my favorite English mystery writers is . . . a Texan? Yes, it's true. The biographical blurbs in the back of Deborah Crombie's English mystery novels insist that she was born and lives in Texas. As an American myself, I can't claim to be the final authority on the Englishness of Crombie's narrative prose and dialogue, but I've spent enough time in the UK and with British friends not to be too easily fooled, and I'll be damned if I can find any cultural or linguistic flaws in her writing. And I appear to be in good company, as Deborah Crombie has twice won the British mystery writers' top award for her novels.

Now May You Weep is the ninth in a series of 13 novels Crombie has written since 1993 about the Scotland Yard duo of Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. The two are sleuths who live together with his son, her son, two personable dogs, and an indifferent cat in a fashionable London neighborhood.

Like every other novel in its series, I found Now May You Weep to be engrossing and difficult to set aside. The scene is not England this time but Scotland, where Gemma James, recently promoted to Inspector and still recovering from an especially traumatic miscarriage, has gone for a long weekend for a cooking course at a rural bed-and-breakfast with her best bud, Hazel Cavendish. Hazel, long a rock of stability in Gemma's topsy-turvy life, comes apart at the seams in the course of a weekend of shocking surprises and tragic events.

Crombie's work is especially strong in painting a picture of the local scene -- here, the Scottish highlands in all its stark, windswept glory. A major setting for the novel is an ancient distillery, which serves as the occasion for Crombie to explain in explicit and colorful detail how single-malt Scottish whiskey is made.

Now May You Weep is a stellar crime novel by a writer at the height of her powers. It's an exceptionally fine read.

Deborah Crombie is one of the best mystery writers. I really like the British setting and the interplay between the characters. She has an ability to create a personal story within the mystery. Plots are good and still realistic. Although I generally don't like plots where the investigating officer is connected to the victims or suspects, in this particular book it is done well. If you read all of the series, it is interesting to follow the progress of the interaction of the main characters. Good read.

This one of the series is set in Scotland and has to do with the whiskey business in the past and the present. Family loves and feuds still have a strong hold on the Highlands as Gemma finds out.
Vishura
I much prefer the later books. This was too much like a romance paperback.....no steamy sex....but Gemma was sort of naive and whiny throughout .... Super judgmental about Hazel and her loves and choices. What I disliked the most was that she never thought or behaved like a professional, and excused herself for that while disrespecting a perfectly competent local officer. For the entire book! A bit like a self righteous Nancy Drew. And plot wise , whole story was steeped in one or another woman's troubled romances. Did like the history and setting a lot.
