I finished this mystery, the latest by P.D. James featuring Adam Dalgliesh, last night. It's not Ms. James' best, but it's awfully good. As much as I admire and like her work, I have to confess that some of her books leave me in a mournful state. This one didn't. A lot of the characters are allowed some happiness at the end. It's not as intricately plotted as some of her past novels, but Ms. James' work has always been more about character than plot. I recommend it highly.
