Publisher's Summary

An Adam Dalgliesh Mystery Commander Adam Dalgliesh is recuperating from a life-threatening illness when he receives a call for advice from an elderly friend who works as a chaplain in a home for the disabled on the Dorset coast. Dalgliesh arrives to discover that Father Baddeley has recently and mysteriously died, as has one of the patients at Toynton Grange. Evidently the home is not quite the caring community it purports to be. Dalgliesh is determined to discover the truth of his friend's death, but further fatalities follow and his own life is in danger as he unmasks the evil at the heart of Toynton Grange.


What the Critics Say

"More expertise from P. D. James. The writing is excellent, the pitch of final terror beautifully sustained." (Evening Standard)
"She writes like an angel. Every character is clearly drawn. Her atmosphere is unerringly, chillingly convincing. And she manages all this without for a moment slowing down the drive and tension of an exciting mystery." (The Times)

A Familiar Tale

PD James has been my favourite author for many years (sad to record in this review that she has now passed away). I have physically read this book, seen a tv adaptation and enjoyed both thoroughly. This unknown narrator (to me at least), was not perfect for me. I would have greatly loved to have heard it being read by the actor Roy Marsden, as he for me is Adam Dalglesh. However having said all this, I enjoyed listening to this crime thriller.
