Book Review of Death in Holy Orders (Adam Dalgliesh, Bk 11)

Death in Holy Orders (Adam Dalgliesh, Bk 11)
reviewed on

A well-written modern English murder mystery. Adam Dalgliesh is called in to find - MURDER (gasp!) - at the heart of the Church of England. A student is found dead at a small theological college, and when good old AD investigates, he finds is an ever-widening circle of deaths, related to each other. It's an inside job - perhaps a mad priest? - and Dalgliesh must figure out who the killer is before more are found dead. "Death in Holy Orders" is a PD James special: a quick-paced detective novel that is great to while away the time while commuting or relaxing poolside. A good series to look forward to reading. Lots of fun characters, and James will keep guessing to the very end.
