P.D. James is “the greatest living mystery writer.”–People

The young women of Nightingale House are there to learn to nurse and comfort the suffering. But when one of the students plays patient in a demonstration of nursing skills, she is horribly, brutally killed. Another student dies equally mysteriously, and it is up to Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard to unmask a killer who has decided to prescribe murder as the cure for all ills.

The New York Times called Shroud for a Nightingale “mystery at its best.”

    " Great story. I figured out how all the disparate parts would hang together, but it was really well written. "

    " Murder in a nurse's school. Interesting but not as good as others. "

    " I like PD James. She is not predictable. In this one, she opens and closes with a protagonist that you otherwise don't see for the entire book. And she certainly knows how to create unlikeable but sympathetic characters. "

    " It's been a while since I read a PD James book. I forgot how satisfying a mystery they are. Sex & secrets abound in an incestuous small nursing school. There was a lot of talk about there being no secrets or privacy in a small dormitory like setting. And certainly everyone has secrets, both small and larger that are revealed throughout the investigation. But it's the biggest secret, the one worth killing for, that doesn't come out until the end.
