Description

Again the protagonist detectives wend their ways through the hints and clues and ultimately the crimes are solved. And he talked about his holidays in expensive and remote places that other students wouldn't be able to travel to, at least not in vacations.

Book takes place at an Anglo-Catholic theological college, Saint Anselm's, on the isolated, wild and windy East Anglican coast. The unravelling of the mystery is perhaps a teeny bit disappointing, as the murderer hadn't really been on my radar screen until near the end of the book. When I got back to my cottage I thought about what Father Martin had said and whether perhaps it might not be a good idea.

Moments of independent erudition, though rare in the Metropolitan Police, are essential to the James style. Oh dear, there's intrigue as well as death and mystery at St Anselm's - the treasures are being taken away, the men are worried, are upset. MS in church, light shining on him, beautiful church - religion gets alot of the good buildings, doesn't it? I have a picture of myself standing there, caked in sand, hair blowing in the wind, gesticulating towards the sea.

A treasure in the Faber Archive is the first book report, written by a perceptive female editor who quickly saw Phyllis's talent, and also perhaps one of the less discussed keys to the success of the Dalgliesh books. It isn't really about family either, although you'd do better as the son of a curate than you would as the son of a pop star. Not one moment in particular; but James's pace is swift, her description vivid and her plotting as detailed as a hand woven tapestry. I'm writing this review immediately after finishing the reading so that I can quickly shove off the disappointment from my system.The son of a parson, and having spent many happy boyhood summers at the school, Dalgliesh is the perfect candidate to look for the truth in this remote, rarified community of the faithful–and the frightened.
