Death in Holy Orders (Adam Dalgliesh Mystery Series #11)
Death in Holy Orders is set in an Anglican theological college on a desolate stretch of the East Anglian coast. When the body of one of the students is found on the shore, smothered by a fall of sand, his wealthy and influential father demands that Scotland Yard should re-examine the verdict of accidental death. Dalgliesh stayed at St Anselm’s as a boy and, as he is due for a holiday, agrees to pay a visit. As the weekend brings another murder, Dalgliesh soon finds himself embroiled in one of the most horrific and puzzling cases of his career…Death in Holy Orders is vintage P.D. James with sensitive evocation of place, a complex and credible mystery, respect for forensic detail and the tension of a plot that never flags.
