This was the best installment of the Dalgliesh series so far. It moved a little quicker than the previous two and its narrative was a bit more gripping due to the enhancement of James' finely-crafted setting. The open headlands, the steep cliffs, and the raging waves of the Suffolk coast make the reading very piquant. In my estimation of fiction, especially mysteries, the setting is all-important and this book fit perfectly within my taste for country and coastal settings. I especially enjoyed and identified with these lines describing Dalgliesh at the beginning of chapter five of the first part:

"He had always enjoyed contrast in art or nature and at Pentlands, once night had fallen, the pleasures of contrast were easily self-induced. Inside the cottage there was light and warmth, all the colours and comfort of civilized domesticity; outside under the low clouds there was darkness, solitude, mystery."

As usual, PD James has done a fine job. This is the 3rd book in the Adam Dagliesh series and I enjoyed it more than some of the more recent boks in the Dagliesh series. Highly recommend.

James can be too dark not in grafic violence but in situations without hope especially the young this is also a novel of just 210 pages a short but not a fast read . M.A.@spsrta

Excellent mystery. You have to read all the way to the end to figure out who did it.
