That a man who caught murderers should be a successful poet seemed inappropriate to some people. But Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh of the Criminal Investigation Department was attending his publisher's annual sherry party when a call from Scotland Yard whipped him away to investigate a particularly brutal murder. In the elegant Steen Psychiatric Clinic, which catered strictly for upper-class neuroses, sprawled the body of Enid Bolam, a chisel through her heart. It had been a vicious, calculated thrust, suggesting that the killer had not only confident knowledge of anatomy but unusual strength. But why, lying on Miss Bolam's chest, was there the grotesque wooden image which old Tippett, a chronic schizophrenic, had been carving in the art therapy department?

    " The third Adam Dalgliesh mystery, with the murder set in a luxe psychiatric clinic in London. Didn't enjoy it quite as much as the others I've read; characters seemed less well-drawn. But it appeased my worry that all P.D. James mysteries ended with the same kind of solution. "

    " Pretty good, but not great. Dalgliesh is harder to warm up to than some other British detectives I enjoy reading. I keep comparing him to Richard Jury in Martha Grimes's books, and he comes up short - so far. This is only the second of the series that I've read, so I'll give it at least one more shot. "
