It begins, dramatically enough, with a trial for murder. The distinguished criminal lawyer Venetia Aldridge is defending Garry Ashe on charges of having brutally killed his aunt. For Aldridge the trial is mainly a test of her courtroom skills, one more opportunity to succeed, and she does. But now murder is in the air. The next victim will be Aldridge herself, stabbed to death at her desk in her Chambers in the Middle Temple, a bloodstained wig on her head. Enter Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team, whose struggle to investigate and understand the shocking events cannot halt the spiral into more horrors, more murders.

    " When only a good old-fashioned murder mystery will do, P.D.James doesn't disappoint. In this one, from the late 90s, it seems that everyone who knew the victim, a coldly brilliant criminal defense lawyer, had motive to kill her. Intricate, well written and satisfying, as always. "

    " Love the P.D. James. "

    " I chose this book because one of my friends recommended it to me. A lawyer named Venetia Albridge is defending a young man who is accused of murdering his mother. To everyone's surprise, she is soon found dead and everyone is suspicious of the boy. I liked the author's style because she made everything sound mysterious. My favorite quote was "When we did talk it was personal". This was my favorite quote because I like the mystery and emotion in it. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read mysteries. "

    " It is part of you style to find that nobody has a happy situation. Love is rare. Parents reject their children, nothing positive happens, competition is in every comment or reaction. James seems to delight in the mystery that Dalgliesh solves but cannot prove and so we get a partial justice. These are enjoyable reads and I suspect that this kind of dark, unhappy world is considered necessary for good mystery novels. Rankin seems to paint something of this in the Rebus stories. Cronwell has much the same gloom in her novels. "
