About this deal

He becomes one of the essential features of a good detective story - a victim whose death readers do not mourn.

It is a world in which murder stories barely mention sex and, apart from the murders themselves, are wholly free of violence.Another death, this time a murder, brings all of Dalgliesh's team into the case; DI Piers Tarrant, DI Kate Miskin and DS Robbins.

James is famous for the vivid way she includes the east coast landscape into her books, and rightly so.

Lacks the psychological insight and subtlety she usually employs in her books, so a bit disappointing for this fan. This recent edition has a great story, although the motivations of the murderer left me disbelieving. Dalgliesh, the son of a rector, has former ties to the school - as a young teen, he spent several happy summer holidays there among the priests and ordinands.
