P.D. James writes a darn fine mystery, and this one was no exception. This time Inspector Dalgliesh is investigating the suspicious death of a nursing student at a teaching hospital outside of London. While he is knee deep with the questioning of suspects, another nursing student turns up dead. Were they murdered? Was is an accident? Suicide? Dalgliesh has his hands full.

The thing I like most about these mysteries is the point of view shifts, so we may learn insights into the characters that the inspector may not. However, James does an excellent job of revealing the mystery bit by bit so you don't feel like a complete idiot when the killer is revealed.
