by | Read by John Franklyn-Robbins

Mystery & Suspense • 17.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Happily, the extraordinary richness of P.D. James's characterizations exactly coincides with John Franklyn-Robbins's strength as a narrator. His reading skillfully explores the essential traits of each character whether acidic, pompous, generous or--as is true of everyone in a P.D. James work--needy. What's more, with a change of inflection or pacing, Franklyn-Robbins illuminates the understated ironies and humor always embedded in a James mystery. You can almost see Franklyn-Robbins's raised eyebrow. In this outing, Commander Adam Dalgliesh sorts through the death of the ruthless director of an august London publishing house and its crosscurrents of love, ambition and malice.
