Handsome Cambridge dropout Mark Callender died hanging by the neck with a faint trace of lipstick on his mouth. When the official verdict is suicide, his wealthy father hires fledgling private investigator Cordelia Gray to find out what led him to self-destruction. What she discovers instead is a twisting trail of secrets and sins, and the strong scent of murder. An Unsuitable Job for a Woman introduces P. D. James's courageous but vulnerable young detective, Cordelia Gray, in a "top-rated puzzle of peril that holds you all the way" (The New York Times).

3.0 An Unsuitable Job for A Woman
An engaging detective story, with an intelligent heroine who doesn't drive you up in the wall in any way. The plot wasnt too predictable, and the prose was brilliant for this genre (admittedly, havent read too much crime fiction. Well, almost none outside Christie.)
