Handsome Cambridge dropout Mark Callender died hanging by the neck with a faint trace of lipstick on his mouth. When the official verdict is suicide, his wealthy father hires fledgling private investigator Cordelia Gray to find out what led him to self-destruction. What she discovers instead is a twisting trail of secrets and sins, and the strong scent of murder.

An Unsuitable Job for a Woman introduces P. D. James’s courageous but vulnerable young detective, Cordelia Gray, in a “top-rated puzzle of peril that holds you all the way” (The New York Times).

    " Almost anything by PD James is worth reading. "

    " Although I prefer the original Dagleish stories, I still thought this spin off was worth reading. Perhaps, unlike some close to home, it takes me longer to know who's done it, almost to the end of the book. "
