Read in March, 2011

Maybe it's because it's a later work by her, or perhaps I'm getting more used to her style, or even, because it harks back to country house whodunnits; whatever, I found this more satisfying than the first two I read by P D James. She has a knack of interjecting sudden, short bursts of shocking violence in the middle of languid desription, introspection or musings. I think this might be one of her trademarks.

Better, and a definite three stars.
