Water Like a Stone is the eleventh book of fiction and fiction in the Duncan Kincaid / Gemma James Mystery Novels series by author Deborah Crombie. When Scotland Yard director Duncan Kincaid took Gemma, Kit and Toby to visit family in Cheshire on holiday. Gemma is mesmerized by Nantwich’s beautiful buildings and historic winding canal, and Kit is infatuated with her cousin Lally. Their visit is marred by family tensions related to the marriage of Juliet, Duncan’s sister. On Christmas Eve, Juliet discovers the body of a newborn baby mummified in the wall of an old dairy barn – a tragedy haunted by the drowning death of Peter Llewellyn, a classmate of Lally’s.
On her cramped boat, former social worker Annie Lebow lives a life of self-isolation and prepares for a lonely Christmas. Life is made more complicated by her encounter earlier in the day with the Wains, a traditional rowing family whose case forced Annie to leave.
Police investigate the infant’s death. Kincaid discovers that his childhood lovely town life was far from idyllic, and that the dreamy fields of the Shropshire Union Canal hold dark and deadly secrets. Secrets can threaten everything and the people he loves most.
This work was a finalist for the 2008 Macavity Award for Best Mystery Novel.

Here are some comments from readers to better understand this good audiobooks:

01- Here are some of Crombie’s mysteries – good plot, quality writing. Water Like a Stone, most of the story depicts miserable people who are constantly heading towards many different disasters. Crombie takes us through all of this with, in the end, This is a good detective or mystery book but this one brought too much dark suffering for me.

02-This novel is about the drama of more families than a murder mystery. Readers are sure to be more drawn to Kincaid, Wain, and the complex family dynamics that take place in a Cheshire countryside with warm and cozy towns, Kincaid family farms, and attractions. of local canals and waterways. The more convincing suspenseful plot includes a convincing portrait of antisocial personality disorder and the crimes it can cause. The story is strangely realistic and the book is very suitable for readers who love new things.

03- The Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James series, which is my favorite, is an excellent mystery although rather brooding and sad because it is set at Christmas time. The gripping plot revolves around the historic city of Nantwich, England, and life on the canals and narrow boats of Shropshire. Kincaid’s relationship with his former partner, the sergeant, has now turned romantic. As their relationship develops, new plot twists involve their family as well as Duncan’s parents and sister. The mystery begins with the body of a baby hanging from the wall in a warehouse. The author Crombie introduced a lot of new characters a lovable Shropshire police inspector like Duncan’s brother-in-law and his business partner. The story with suspense quickly turns to a climactic ending, which will keep you from leaving the progression of this beautiful story.
