An absolutely superb crime book!,
This review is from: The Lighthouse (Paperback)
Having read quite a number of P.D. James novels, this one definitely stands out as one her best Adam Dalgliesh books so far. Just about everything is well-timed: the plot is neither too simple nor wildly exagerrated, the number of characters not too large, the attention to detail just right without turning the book into a 1,000-page tome, and above all, the book is full of suspense and keeps the reader guessing until the end, without ever revealing too much too early.
It is just amazing how at the age of 85 Baroness James is still able to produce such stunning books! If you like crime fiction, this one is a must!
