PD James has always had an extraordinary talent for complex plots, strong characterisation, wonderfully entertaining mysteries with highly suspenseful and entertaining climaxes. Written in a relatively unique writing style, THE LIGHTHOUSE Is a highly valued and welcome addition to one of the most famous crime series in the world.
The world's favourite retired police detective, Adam Dalgleish, is called in to solve the mystery of a murder at an isolated lighthouse. The reader will learn of the complicated love life of the great man himself, the private problems of his co-workers, as well as at least one further corpse before they reach the book's finale.
And what a finale it is. Immensely satisfying, just short of terrifying, THE LIGHTHOUSE is sure to be one of the top reads of the year.
So of course it highly recommended from me.
