Astonishingly complex - and quite sordid
22 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

A young woman commits suicide; after her funeral and cremation, two men go missing: one is her husband, the other is possibly her lover. When evidence turns up that TWO bodies were cremated and not just one, DCI Janine Lewis and her team must find out who the second body belonged to, and where the killer is now.

"Up In Smoke" is a real jigsaw puzzle of a mystery. Just when you think you have it figured out, it takes you down a different path. And then another. It may get far-fetched at points, but this matters little when the result is so engrossing. It also touches on some very sensitive subjects - this one is definitely not for kids. *** out of 4.
