Review

"Her best and most ambitious tale to date. . . . The reigning mistress of murder. . . . A craftsman with a poet's vision, she not only detects evil but attempts to uncover the more elusive--and enduring--enigmas of the human psyche that lead to it." --"Time"
"Rich, multifaceted. . . . Involving and genuinely moving. . . . So ambitious and thematically challenging that it has few peers in its genre. A Taste for Death provides all the entertaining elements of a more conventional murder mystery, but James continually delivers that something extra. . . . James at her best, at the zenith of her writing career." --"Houston Chronicle"
"Literary grace of a high order and the ability to give full dimensions to both character, relationships and environment. . . . She writes with precision and elegance." --"Los Angeles Times"
"Ms. James is simply a wonderful writer." --"The New York Times Book Review"
"Rings of authenticity . . . compelling. . . . The ability to haunt has earned P. D. James the title of 'queen of crime.' Long may she reign." --"Chicago Sun-Times"
"James still delivers the pace and tensions of a mystery yarn better than any living writer." --"People"
"A pleasure to read. . . . One avidly turns the pages." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
"The best of James' ten novels. . . . She has blended a whodunit and a fully realized modern novel." --"The New York Times Magazine"
"Marvelous." --"Newsweek"
"One reads a P. D. James novel in something like the same spirit that one reads a novel by Zola, Balzac, Thackeray, or Dickens." --"The Christian Science Monitor"
