Death in Holy Orders (Adam Dalgliesh, Bk 11)
Death in Holy Orders - Adam Dalgliesh, Bk 11 Author:P. D. James The setting is the bleak coast of East Anglia, where atop a sweep of low cliffs stands the small theological college of St. Anselm's. On the shore not far away, smothered beneath a fall of sand, lies the body of one of the school's young ordinands. — He is the son of Sir Alred Treves, a hugely successful and flamboyant businessman who is accustom... more »ed to getting what he wants, and in this case what he wants is Commander Adam Dalgliesh to investigate his son's death. Although there seems to be little to investigate, Dalgliesh agrees, largely out of nostalgia for several happy summers he spent at St. Anselm's as a boy.
No sooner does he arrive, however, than the college is torn apart by a sacrilegious and horrifying murder, and Dalgliesh finds himself ineluctably drawn into the labyrinth of an intricate and violent mystery.« less
