This was the best of the first four to me. The series is getting a little better as I continue reading the books. The character is developing and I believe this will just get better; time will tell.

Ah, P.D. James does it again. Not one murderer but two. Two nurses die in a teaching hospital and Adam Daigliesh has to figure it all out. The suspects are many - student nurses, teaching nurses, two doctors and a pharmacist. It appears that any one of the them could have murdered the young women. Once the inspector and his sidekick, Masterson, gather all the pieces the puzzle begins to take shape. The answer is stranger than you think. It's a very good mystery and I couldn't help but keep reading late into the night as I neared the end.

This is set in late 1960's england in a suburb outside london. For those of you who like Agatha Christie stories, this is for you. And especially, for those of you who are nurses and ever experienced some nightmarish (or maybe not) times in nursing school, this is an interesting mystery.
