    Intriguing British Puzzle

    This was a completely satisfying mystery. It kept me guessing until the end. The plot was well drawn out and characterization impeccable as usual. Ms. James seems to be getting better and better after all these years and that is saying something. I reccommend this book to those who want to be involved in first rate, intelligent mystery reading.

    FIRST-RATE READING

    Popular British author P. D. James never seems to run out of plots, situations and surprises - lucky for us! London born Emmy Award-winning actor Charles Keating gives a bravura performance of her latest Adam Dalgliesh mystery. Taking its title from one of the most popular galleries in the Dupayne Museum, 'The Murder Room' proves to be one of the commanders most challenging cases as each step he takes in solving the mystery seems to distance him from the woman he loves. The Dupayne, a small private family owned museum located by London's Hampstead Heath, is bound for trouble as one member of the family is intent upon selling it and others are not. It's rather an odd museum dedicated to England between the wars (1919 - 1939). The Murder Room is a gallery full of artifacts representing heinous crimes committed during that time period. To sell or not to sell is not a mere family squabble, it's bitter conflict made even more so when one of the family members is murdered. Almost before Dalgliesh and his cohorts can begin their investigation another dead body is discovered. To make matters even more surreal the killings bear a strong resemblance to slayings commemorated in the Murder Room. Now, there are a host of possible suspects, including Museum staff, and a number of possible future victims. Dalgliesh must not only work with his usual intensity but he must work rapidly. P. D. James weaves another spell for mystery aficionados.
