Read in January, 2009

Not James' best but still James! I liked the way she ended this novel. I did feel some of the extra information within the mystery was too much/padded. Also, Commander Dagliesh's life outside of the actual case felt disjointed but I still enjoyed the book overall.

Maybe it's me, but I felt like James' was "tidying" up the mainstay Dagliesh characters' stories to have somewhat of an end in case...
I also thought she was reflecting on death in the story (besides the actual murder)a whole lot... she is almost 89 but I am hoping for another Dagliesh installment!
