Additional Notes

From The Publisher*In celebration of P. D. James's 90th birthday, Vintage Canada is thrilled to reissue the grand dame of detective fiction's much-loved and critically acclaimed backlist in trade paperback.

When the administrative head of the Steen Psychiatric Clinic is found dead with a chisel in her heart, Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard is called in to investigate. Dalgliesh must analyze the deep-seated anxieties and thwarted desires of patients and staff alike to determine which of their unresolved conflicts resulted in murder.
Review Quote*"She is an addictive writer. P.D. James takes her place in the long line of those moralists who tell a story as satisfying as it is complete." -- Anita Brookner

"P.D. James is one of the national treasures of British fiction. As James takes us from one life to another, her near-Dickensian scale becomes apparent." -- Malcolm Bradbury, Mail on Sunday

"Great and powerful writing." -- The Globe and Mail
