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).

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 3/27/2011

    " Almost anything by PD James is worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ice | 3/8/2011

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie O | 2/28/2011

    " This just didn't come together well for me. I'll give the next one in the series a shot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie | 2/6/2011

    " This book had a ridiculously long ending, but otherwise the story was OK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/20/2011

    " It was OK in parts, but the writing was ever-so and frightfully...

    It probably wasn't so noticeable back in the 1970s, but now, used as we are to faster-paced books, it seems a very slow and clunky read, enlivened with occasional flashes of violence and fear. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 1/13/2011

    " James' Inspector Dalgliesh shares the stage with a lady PI. It's a real winner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesa | 12/9/2010

    " P. D. James had me guessing for awhile this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalya | 10/23/2010

    " A good enough novel, but I found it lacked a certain "heart", most main players were unlikable and language was dry. Cordelia, the main character, is a cute character though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 10/19/2010

    " A cute mystery. I liked the character Cordelia Gray. She only wrote one more with this character, which I'm sad to say isn't in the Brisbane Library system. The ending was a bit forced, but otherwise it was enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 10/7/2010

    " Not as deliciously British as I had hoped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MaryKay | 10/6/2010

    " I want to try another book by this author. The book was well written and I enjoyed the narrator of the audio book. I wish the morals of the characters aligned better with my own. "
