Product description

Review

"Superb.... A treat for mystery lovers, and a gift to all readers." --USA Today

"Splendidly suspenseful." --The Washington Post Book World

"A first-rate detective novel, but it goes beyond that fine achievement to another realm.... An intricate, compassionate novel." --The Boston Globe

"Her best and most ambitious tale to date.... The reigning mistress of murder.... A craftsman with a poet's vision, she not only detects evil but attempts to uncover the more elusive--and enduring--enigmas of the human psyche that lead to it." --Time

"Rich, multifaceted.... Involving and genuinely moving.... So ambitious and thematically challenging that it has few peers in its genre. A Taste for Death provides all the entertaining elements of a more conventional murder mystery, but James continually delivers that something extra.... James at her best, at the zenith of her writing career." --Houston Chronicle

"Literary grace of a high order and the ability to give full dimensions to both character, relationships and environment.... She writes with precision and elegance." --Los Angeles Times


"Ms. James is simply a wonderful writer." --The New York Times Book Review

"Rings of authenticity ... compelling.... The ability to haunt has earned P. D. James the title of 'queen of crime.' Long may she reign." --Chicago Sun-Times

"James still delivers the pace and tensions of a mystery yarn better than any living writer." --People

"A pleasure to read.... One avidly turns the pages." --Cleveland Plain Dealer

"The best of James' ten novels.... She has blended a whodunit and a fully realized modern novel." --The New York Times Magazine

"Marvelous." --Newsweek

"One reads a P. D. James novel in something like the same spirit that one reads a novel by Zola, Balzac, Thackeray, or Dickens." --The Christian Science Monitor

Book Description

Richard Derrington and Deborah McAndrew star in this thrilling dramatisation of P.D. James' enduringly popular mystery.
