A young theology student is found on a beach and is thought to be an accidental death until other people start dying. Interesting moment where knitting provides a clue that not all is well with one of the deaths.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, so much that it was hard for me to put down most nights. PD James is a great author, one of my favorites, and does a great job describing everything so vividly.

This is actually the first PD James book I had seen made into a movie on Masterpiece Theatre and I fell in love with the twists and turns of the show. The book is even better..written almost poetically and bringing the reader in to understand more about the characters.

P. D. James continues to write very literate and interesting mysteries featuring her well-read inspector Adam Dalgliesh. This recent edition has a great story, although the motivations of the murderer left me disbelieving. His rationale just did not seem especially valid, but the scenarios an...
