    The New York Times Bestselling Series

    "What made this ebook such pleasurable reading was not the murder or even the Police procedure, but the rather wonderful cast of characters that the author, Emma Jameson, has created to populate her world. In the space of about 184 pages, Emma has managed to give us a whole collection of individuals, each very nicely rounded out and real. Even very minor players - such as the tall PC who finds the pistol seems to be alive and obviously has a life outside the book." -- Tony Cole, eBookanoid.com

    Anthony Hetheridge, ninth Baron of Wellegrave, Chief Superintendent for New Scotland Yard, never married, no children, no pets, no hobbies, and not even an interesting vice, will turn sixty in three weeks. With the exception of his chosen career, too sordid for his blue-blooded family to condone, his life has been safe and predictable. But then he meets Detective Sergeant Kate Wakefield – beautiful, willful, and nearly half his age. When Hetheridge saves the outspoken, impetuous young detective from getting the sack, siding with her against Scotland Yard’s powerful male hierarchy, his cold, elegantly balanced world spins out of control. Summoned to London’s fashionable Belgravia to investigate the brutal murder of a financier, Hetheridge must catch the killer while coping with his growing attraction to Kate, the reappearance of an old flame, and the secret that emerges from his own past.

    Fall in love with ICE BLUE, the first in the NYT and USA bestselling series!

      I'm trying to think where they got that title...hmmm Anyway, i enjoyed this mystery quite a bit, and I see there are more stories which kind of gives me a hint about what's to come. I look forward to more books from this author and have signed up with to get to know her.

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I though this book was good and it was interesting to see the thought processes of all the characters. I thought it started out a little slow, but otherwise was a good read.

      Just finished this story and I had to buy the rest of the series. A hint of romance, a long buried secret and a couple of murders, what more could you want or need. I love British police stories. They are always intense.

      I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was my first book by this author and I will definitely be checking out the other books in the series. Each character is very well-developed. They have their idiosyncrasies and it makes for a very interesting read. Anthony Hetheridge (Tony) is not the kind of character I regularly read stories about. He is getting ready to turn 60 and is a reflective mood. He has never married and has no family and has devoted himself to his career in law enforcement. Kate Wakefield is also a member of the police force but not of his class and half his age. She is not shy about expressing her concerns about her supervisor in public when they first meet. It is a laugh out loud moment. He decides to "rescue" her from the supervisor and she begins to work on his team. Kate has a crazy personal life and she brings Tony into a new world. The homicide they investigate is well written and introduces a group of interesting characters to the mix. There are plenty of suspects in the murder as the victim wasn't nice to anyone. I like a mystery that keeps you guessing and this one definitely did. I could see it going several ways which is a credit to the author. I would definitely recommend this book to those who like a little romance with their mystery. Great characters, fun dialogue, and a well-written mystery that will keep you guessing makes for a great read.
