Library Journal Review

Commander Adam Dalgliesh of New Scotland Yard agrees to investigate the questionable death of Ronald Treeves, an ordinand at St. Anselm's College and the son of Sir Alred Treeves, a man used to having his own way. Although Ronald's death is viewed as a suicide by most of the college, Dalgliesh's investigation begins to raise some doubt. St. Anselm's is situated on the crumbling coast line of East Anglia, and, like that coast, it, too, is having difficulty standing up to the onslaught of the 20th century. However, when Archdeacon Crampton, one of St. Anselm's most vocal opponents, is found murdered in the chapel, Dalgliesh has more than one mystery to solve. James (A Certain Justice) has created yet another complex and enthralling novel. This book, with Charles Keating's admirable performance, is essential for all public libraries.
