Family matters take a backseat in this installment in the Kincaid/James series. As Duncan get aclimated to his new position and staff, still nothing is revealed as to why he was transfered. Also, not much emotional stuff with the side characters except a bit about Melody. Most of the plot revolves around an incident in St Pancras station. All-in-all an ok police procedural. One thing I liked was that Crombie backed off a bit in her London travelogue. It ends with a bit of foreshadowing. Almost a cliff-hanger.
