Returning home from his marriage to D.I. Gemma James, detective superintendent Duncan Kincaid hopes to finish his holiday in peace. But his plans are scotched by the disappearance of a scull rower who goes out to train on the Thames at dusk—and doesn’t return.
When Kincaid learns that Rebecca Meredith was an Olympic contender and a senior officer in the Metropolitan Police, he’s not surprised that Scotland Yard wants one of their own on the case. But he is surprised to learn how cutthroat the world of elite rowing can be.
It’s as Kincaid enlists Gemma's aid that Deborah Crombie's No Mark Upon Her turns infinitely more deadly. For the answers lie closer to home than they imagine—and more than one innocent life hangs in the balance.

another good read by Crombie..i love the main characters and the setting...keeps you interested to the end...worth the time and money..cant wait till the next in this series..
I thought this book was the best DC ever. The characters were richly and deeply developed . The images of the rowing and the river were beautiful. The story was thrilling.
I can't wait for the next book. She is just getting better and better.
Loved all of her books. Intense,interesting plot and great characters, who would have thought scull racing would be so cut throat.
As the lead says, Crombie never misses. In this new book, Gemma and Duncan are working seemingly separate cases, and the ending is amazing. It's a complex plot, with several characters who could, should, might be the perpetrator, yet the ending is a total surprise. She can't write them fast enough for me.

A new Crombie is always a treat. Excellent plot line and her characters are always interesting, her plot carefully constructed. I am always sorry when I finish one of her books and know I have now wait for the next one. A good read.
