PD James passes on the mantle?, 30 July 2012
I discovered P.D James a few years ago, read all her books within 2 months and have felt faintly bereft since I finished the last one. Joyously, over the weekend I think I have finally found worthy successors to Adam Dalgliesh in Spike Sanguenetti and PD James in Thomas Mogford. The book is gripping, atmospheric, observant, clever and above all a page turner. What more could you ask for from a novel? The good news, for me, is that I cannot glut on Thomas Mogford's writing, as this is his first book. I am looking forward to many more good reads over the next few years.
