Review

Many people believe the earth contains special places of power such as Stonehenge and the Bermuda Triangle. Not quite as known as the others is Glastonbury in England, considered source of power within the nearby ruins. Locals believe that King Arthur is buried there and whenever his nation needs him, he responds to the call.

Superintendent Duncan Kincaid's cousin Jack begins doing automatic scribing that is believed to emanate from Edward, a Glastonbury monk dead for almost a century. A group forms that is interested in what Edward is saying through Jack. However, when a car purposely hits a group member, Jack turns to Duncan for help. Along with his significant other Gemma, Duncan investigates only to observe another murder from a killer who must be stopped immediately.

Duncan and Gemma play a pivotal but secondary role in A FINER END. The real drama centers on the past and present Glastonbury and the people who feel its power. Deborah Crombie has written a tale about a community as well as a mystery that showcases strong characterizations. Readers who believe in the force will find magic in the pages of Ms. Crombie's latest masterpiece.
