“’The victim's hair was damp, which suggests she died after her swim and not before it’" In “Devices and Desires” by P. D. James I’m no detective but that is some incredible deduction Dalgliesh… I'm only going to be on this earth for a limited amount of time, and in all likelihood I won't...
To be honest, I read this book 6 months ago and am just getting to my review..I can't remember much about the book and I only gave it 3 stars..In my world, that means that I liked it, but not enough to retain it.

I think this was one of the first P.D. James books I read. It's good, but a bit different from some of her other Adam Dalgleish stories because A.D. is only a minor character. Not my favorite of hers, but even her worst is pretty darn good.
I can't believe I read so many PD James books...she's dull as dishwater.
