Judi Bowker and Anna Massey star in this gripping BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation featuring young detective Cordelia Gray. Mark Calendar, 21 years old and in his final year at Cambridge, leaves university without warning and takes a job as a gardener. Eighteen days later he is found hanging in the cottage where he lived. The verdict at the inquest is suicide. Cordelia Gray, now sole proprietor of the Pryde Detective Agency, is hired by Mark's father, the eminent scientist Sir Ronald, to piece together the facts surrounding his death. Gradually she sheds light on the apparent suicide, and long-suppressed family secrets begin to emerge. Whilst further tragedy is in store for the family, Cordelia discovers that, in the midst of Mark's many friends, there is a dangerous enemy with the cold and complex mind of a killer.

    " Really enjoyed this,but thought I was in the Dalgleish series, which it isn't. "

    " At first it was interesting to follow the main character, Cordelia, as she found clues and investigated the case of the apparent suicide of a well-known scientist's son. However,as the plot progresses, it became slightly predictable. The middle of the story was not the most interesting of them all, but there were several twists at the end that tied some of the knots well. The conclusion could have been slightly longer though. All in all, it was a good book. "

    " I read this many years ago and just loved Cordelia. A friend of my sister's back in junior high was named Cordelia and I couldn't help but imagine this woman as the Cordelia I knew! Part of the fun of this is the "unsuitability" of Cordelia's job in the eyes of the world, which I related to and cherished. She did it her way. P.D. James is a wonderful writer and I may have to go back and get this one again. "

    " I loved her descriptions of England in the 1970's. About 1/2 way through I figured out "who-dun-it" but there was still more to read and enjoy. "
