Product description

Review

"Shocking. . . . Fascinating. . . . Sucks the reader in right from the dramatic first line." --Los Angeles Times

"Deeply satisfying. . . . A psychologically abundant tale." --The Boston Globe

"Vintage James. . . . Around her central drama, James creates these smaller worlds with forensic precision." --The New York Times Book Review

"Gripping." --The Wall Street Journal

"[A] darkly thrilling tale." --San Francisco Chronicle

"A complex, gripping story. . . . It has the trademark virtues of James's fictions: a dense weave of characters, a careful, winding plot, and above all a richly evoked sense of place." --Newsday

"Jaw-dropping." --Entertainment Weekly

"Certain to entertain you . . . a tale well worth reading." --Chicago Tribune

"Enthralling. . . . [P. D. James's] stories always captivate." --Associated Press

"Gripping. . . . The suspense never flags." --Mademoiselle

"This is a P. D. James case to shiver through and revel in--dark page by dark page." --Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"As always, James proves to be a masterful storyteller . . . she remains as intrigued by the mysteries of the human condition as she is by the intricacies of detection." --The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Taut, suspenseful, and deeply penetrating." --The Baltimore Sun

"Another winner. . . . In what may be the best of her Dalgliesh series, James creates a gallery of memorable characters and furnishes them with a complex yet convincing story, gracefully told." --The San Diego Union-Tribune

"A compelling tale of pride, deceit, and revenge." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A P. D. James mystery moves with stately dignity, gathering force, offering circumstance and biography, intricately linked means and motivations, quick horrors, the boredom of routine, the inevitability of tragedy, the implacable power of the past." --Detroit News Free Press

"The incomparable James is at the top of her form. . . . [She] interweaves crimes old and new in this brilliantly plotted novel that depicts the many faces of the human psyche and contemplates the question, 'What is justice?'" --Library Journal

"Riveting. . . . Immensely satisfying in both its intricate plot and complexity of characters. . . . James leads readers on a page-turning journey. . . . Themes of obsession, neglect, revenge, and ambition fuel this emotionally powerful puzzler." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The most electric opening of any of James's novels." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
