‘Highly recommended.’ Daily Telegraph
Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh has never failed to solve a case.
When he is called to the scene of a gruesome murder at a psychiatry clinic in London, he finds it in lockdown: no one has entered or left the building since the discovery of the body. So, it figures, the culprit must be amongst the people before him.
As Dalgliesh quickly discovers, however, the intricate web of lies and grudges among the staff and patients at the Steen Clinic cast confusing shadows. Amid all that deceit, could the killer be preparing to strike again?
Neat and startling . . . P. D. James is simply a wonderful writer.
Unlike to many crime writers, James still has the power to move, fascinate and astonish.
