Death in Holy Orders free pdf From the award-winning master of literary crime fiction, a classic work rich in tense drama and psychological insight.
On the East Anglian seacoast, a small theological college hangs precariously on an eroding shoreline and an equally precarious future. When the body of a student is found buried in the sand, the boy' s influential father demands that Scotland Yard investigate. Enter Adam Dalgliesh, a detective who loves poetry, a man who has known loss and discovery. The son of a parson, and having spent many happy boyhood summers at the school, Dalgliesh is the perfect candidate to look for the truth in this remote, rarified community of the faithful- and the frightened. And when one death leads to another, Dalgliesh finds himself steeped in a world of good and evil, of stifled passions and hidden pasts, where someone has cause not just to commit one crime but to begin an unholy order of murder. . . .
" Gracefully sculpted prose and [a] superbly executed mystery . . . Death in Holy Orders is among [James' s] most remarkable and accomplished Dalgliesh novels."
- "The Philadelphia Inquirer"
" An elegant work about hope, death, and the alternately redemptive and destructive nature of love."
- "The Miami Herald"
" Absorbing . . . [James' s] plotting and characterization [are] impeccable."
- "Orlando Sentinel"
" P. D. James is in top form."
- "The Boston Globe"
