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).

    " I started it for the title but had a hard time finishing. I wasn't invested in any of the characters unfortunately. "

    " Still not the awesome book that I keep hearing PD James writes, but it was pretty good. Didn't keep me on the edge, and I guessed the result way before the end, but a decent read. Also, some sloppiness in detail that never would have happened in real life murder investigations. Can't say more without giving away too much, but I was surprised in the oversight. "

    " A fast comfort read. I liked Cordelia, but the time period felt wrong and parts of the middle were pretty sloggy. I appreciated the way the mystery ended (a matter-of-fact collaboration between women) and various other pieces but as a whole it was only okay. "
