P.D. James is one of best mystery writers of all time. She is British so her books are very English, which I happen to adore. There is nothing like a great British mystery writer.
One of James' best - lots of twists and turns.
Enjoyed this very much, looking forward to reading more by the same author.
Another great mystery novel by PD James staring everybody's favorite detective, Inspector Dalgleish. A masterpiece.
A nice P D James with plenty of atmosphere.
This is probably my least favorite James' novel. I learned more about so many people, especially the unhappy ones, than I cared to. The book just seemed to go on and on about everyone. And why so many people with personal hangups? Aren't there any 'normal' people left in England?
Then, in a chapter toward the end, she introduces the weirdest episode. It is almost as if you were watching a old Sherlock Holmes movie, with Basil Rathbone in the lead, and it was progressing to the climax, when Holmes turns a corner and you see Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca! Your immediate reaction is "What the .....!"
"Brilliant, wonderful. P.d. James does it again" Larry King, USA Today
The book cover posted here does not look like my book. The front of my book has a small windmill on it. It is the same book, though.
