A nice multiple murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie set in England amid a Church of England seminary kicks off with an apparent suicide by one of the students. Nice character development that doesn't give away the murderer too early in the story. A nice description of the setting adds to the comfiness of the book and made me yearn to visit more of England. Some info of interest to art history buffs is included with the description of several pieces of valuable artwork the school owns and displays.
Senior investigator, Adam Dalgiesh, apparently is the main character of the author's series of who- done-its, but he didn't seem to me to be the character I would want to follow in additional stories. I found the priests, professors, and seminarians much more interesting than any of the police assigned to the case.
