Commander Dalgliesh is recuperating from a life-threatening illness when he receives a call for advice from an elderly friend who works as a chaplain in a home for the disabled on the Dorset coast. Dalgliesh arrives to discover that Father Baddeley has recently and mysteriously died, as has one of the patients at Toynton Grange. Evidently the home is not quite the caring community it purports to be. Dalgliesh is determined to discover the truth of his friend’s death, but further fatalities follow and his own life is in danger as he unmasks the evil at the heart of Toynton Grange.

    " I wanted to read something by PD James in her 'native' genre after loving Children of Men (highly recommend the book and movie) so I picked up this mystery at the local library. Set in 1970s England it proceeded at a snail's pace until the very end. Enjoyable but I probably won't quickly pick up another of her mysteries anytime soon. "

    " Rather disappointing. I picked this book up at a book sale for a song, mostly because the cover advertised the book as "Agatha Christie's Crown Princess" and being a Christie fan I thought I'd try it out. The story was long, boring, and the mystery easy to figure out. Very few of the characters had any appeal to me and quite honestly, I skipped parts just to get through to the end. Sorry to say, I don't think I'll try any more of PD James's books. "

    " Agatha Christie-like. Many characters. Many murders. Neatly tied together at the end. Too neat. Who cares? "
