P.D. James delivers another fascinating Adam Dalgliesh mystery. The enigmatic Scotland Yard commander investigates the murder of a journalist who is killed in a posh private clinic in Dorset just after undergoing plastic surgery. James's latest manages to plumb the depths of investigative journalism, probing tender secrets and sensational scandals. Environmental issues, aging, and the hope of new love are also part of the story. Roslyn Landor lends the characters' voices appropriate, subtle, and insightful tones that reflect their age, social standing, gender, and education. Overall, her clarity and soft British accent complement the fourteenth Dalgliesh outing. A finely crafted conundrum, intricately layered.
