And she manages all this without for a moment slowing down the drive and tension of an exciting mystery."--"The Times" (UK)

Unusual book, not P D James' usual type but interesting. Need to read quite a bit of it to get started with the story but well worth getting to the end.Published 4 months ago by Strawberry girl
