Murder and espionage meld in the exciting new thriller A Murder of Crows. Margaret Duffy is a fantastic storyteller with a unique way of capturing mature romance and breath-taking danger. Her characters are damaged, flawed, fallible - utterly human and all the more captivating for it.

Ingrid Langley once loved Patrick Gillard, but marriage to a professional soldier is far from easy. Her second marriage, to policeman Peter Clyde is happy, but ends abruptly when he is murdered three weeks before their first anniversary - the only witness, her ex-husband.

Her anger quickly turns to confusion when Patrick reveals what happened and tells her he has been assigned to protect her. Despite the wounds he is still recovering from, Patrick is an able protector. In spite of everything, Ingrid finds herself falling for him - and deeper into the web of secrets and spies that led to the death of her husband.

Margaret Duffy breathes life into her characters. Ingrid Langley is no ingenue, she is an adult who is perceptive and intelligent. Even her sense of humor rings true. Patrick Gillard is an incredible male lead. He isn’t James Bond who walks through fire and doesn’t even get his eyebrows singed. He is a man who has lost much, and has struggled to not only recover enough to survive, but to continue his work. After nearly being killed in the Falklands, Patrick’s legs required numerous surgeries simply to function. While needing a long recovery time, Patrick doesn’t view himself as disabled. Even after losing his leg and being fitted with a prosthesis, he carries on. The process does mark him, but he is driven, both in his work and his desire to protect Ingrid. The duo is well matched.

If you enjoy romantic suspense or espionage thrillers, don’t miss the opportunity to read A Murder of Crows.

This is the first in the Ingrid Langley/Patrick Gillard series. Ingrid Langley is a successful author, happily rid of her "insufferably" perfect British Army Major ex-husband. She is happily remarried to a policeman, Peter Clyde. Peter is also a friend of the Major. The story begins with Peter being followed, and he seeks refuge in the Major's apartment. The Major was gravely wounded in the Falklands, and he cannot save Peter's life.
After a tense interlude, Ingrid and the Major start weaving together the corruption that led to Peter's murder. Dodging friendly and unfriendly fire, the duo is forced to forge a team to ensure their survival. The reader sets off on a great and witty adventure with the characters.

I was overjoyed that NetGalley kindly sent me this book. It is one of my favorites, and has been reread many happy times.

Okay, Margaret Duffy and her Patrick Gillard and Ingrid Langley series... Well, I'm addicted to them. Once I read the first one, way back in 1987, I couldn't stop reading them. I think she's on book 13 now... so there were a lot to read. :) I LOVE these books. They're not like anything you've probably ever read before. Margaret Duffy is a one-of-a-kind writer. I love these books so much because the main characters (Patrick, Ingrid, Terry, Colonel Daws) are so compelling. Especially Patrick. I want a Patrick of my own, please? I'll be honest. Half the time I have no idea what's going on in these books. Margaret Duffy writes in British, and since I'm an American, I don't speak that language. So, yeah, I have no idea what she's talking about most of the time. These books are so deeply idiomatic in the UK culture and language/slang. Also, she's a very cryptic writer. She often doesn't tell you what actually happened, she just tells you the consequences, and later on you find out what actually happened. Nevertheless, I'm addicted to these books. Major Patrick Gillard (Mr. 007 himself) is a character you will never, ever forget. I read A Murder of Crows when it first came out in 1987, and now in 2010-2011, I am rereading the entire series again, one book right after another, unable to put them down. These books are full of spies and traitors, crimes, mysteries, small English villages and cottage and vicarages, kidnappings, torture, and of course a nice little bit of romance between the two main characters, Patrick and Ingrid, who are husband and wife. Imagine James Bond running around on secret government missions, with his wife along with him (she's a new recruit to this secret sub-department of Britain's MI5). Throw in a best friend, Patrick's protege Terry Meadows, their boss, Colonel Richard Daws, and several more great supporting characters, and you get the idea. I find these books incredibly romantic, in the classic sense. Start with A Murder of Crows and read them in order. :)
