Evidently the home is not quite the caring community it purports to be. Dalgliesh is determined to discover the truth of his friend's death, but further fatalities follow and his own life is in danger as he unmasks the evil at the heart of Toynton Grange.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant P.D James is my all-time favorite mystery writer. Her Adam Dalgliesh mysteries are perfectly cozy, and she is a master of motive. I especially enjoy the ones set in the desolate corners of rural England, and this one is perfect.
