[These notes were made in 1988:]. I thought I might not like this James as much as some others because it does not star her detective Adam Dalgliesh. But in fact Dalgliesh is a sort of ghostly presence throughout: he was the mentor of the business partner of the young woman, Cordelia Gray, who is i...
