"Deborah Crombie's No Mark Upon Her is simply a brilliant book! Thoughtful, riveting, bold, she has written a novel that will blow your socks off. Not only is the plot fascinating, but in true Crombie-fashion she brings all her characters alive, from Duncan and Gemma to the most incidental character."- Louise Penny
"Macavity Award–winner Crombie examines the corrupting nature of power in her riveting 14th novel featuring Scotland Yard Supt. Duncan Kincaid and Det. Insp. Gemma James (after 2009’s Necessary as Blood)."- Publisher's Weekly Starred Review
"...[R]eaders who savor excellent writing will find that Ms. Crombie delivers it again."- New York Journal of Books
"There are many twists and turns in NO MARK UPON HER and you'll be caught up in all of them from the very first page! It's almost impossible to put this book down once you've started reading it because of the constant pull it will keep on you to find out what happens next. Ms. Crombie has crafted characters that are so real that you just HAVE to care about them."- Fresh Fiction
"Deborah Crombie's skills as a sophisticated novelist have only increased over time. What began as a standard, though excellent, police series based in London, has evolved into a series that's richly populated with detailed, complex characters, vivid settings, and themes. She’s neck and neck with authors like P.D. James and Elizabeth George, though she doesn’t share their sometimes completely bleak viewpoint....This author is one I look forward to reading without fail, and one who has never disappointed me yet. This is another strong entry in a wonderful and vivid series."- Ann Arbor.com

An Olympic contender on the verge of a controversial comeback, she was also ahigh-ranking detective with the Met—a fact that raises a host of political and ethical issues in an already sensitive case.To further complicate the situation, a separate investigation, led by Detective Inspector Gemma James, Kincaid's wife, soon reveals a disturbing—and possibly related—series of crimes, widening the field of suspects.

Surrounded by enemies with friendly faces, pressured to find answers quickly while protecting the Yard at all costs, his career and reputation on the line, Kincaid must race to catch the killer before more innocent lives are lost—including his own.
