James is clearly a very good writer even in her old age. I enjoyed her prose and style and the plot was very clearly and cleverly thought out, however, if you are looking for action, thrills or gore, this may not be the book for you.

Probably the last book in her series on Adam Dagliesh, James has given us another insight into the human condition beyond the ordinary murder mystery. We see the team handle a less than clear murder case following the steps to uncover the murderer who ultimately eludes them. It is not only about the case in James' book, but the uncovering of the motives of people and why they do the things they do.
