"Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James find themselves drawn into a web of deceit and treachery that has its roots in the turmoil of 1939, as England and Germany hover on the brink of war. Gemma learns that her friend Erika Rosenthal lost a valuable brooch during her escape from Berlin, a piece made by her father, a noted Art Deco jeweler. Now that heirloom has turned up for sale at a venerable London auction house, and Erika asks Gemma’s help in discovering its whereabouts for the last fifty years. But the past bleeds into the future when those connected with the brooch begin to die, and Gemma and Duncan learn that the long-ago unsolved murder of Erika’s husband has deadly repercussions in the present."--Author's website.

After three murders and some long lost secrets, James and Kincaid track down the murder in a sting operation. It is a bit slow at the beginning until the back story unfolds. Also highlighted is Gemma's family, her sick mother, his somewhat stormy relationship with her father and Gemma comes to a big personal decision.
Worth reading but not my favorite Crombie novel.
