A Mind To Murder

A Mind To Murder is a great P. D. James mystery (of course all P. D. James mysteries are great) with the inspector Adam Dalgliesh called upon to solve a murder case at the Steen psychiatric hospital.  An eclectic array of doctors and staff members at the clinic are all suspects with their own motives and weak alibis.  Despite the reticence of his witnesses and the seemingly impossible circumstances, Dalgliesh is able to dig to the bottom of the quagmire and ferret out the killer.  

Without giving too much away I will say that things aren't always the way they seem.  At times in this case it seems like Dalgliesh just might be facing a situation he can't solve.  His own doubts and fears start to emerge as the facts just don't seem to be adding up.  Even as he pulls through and solves the mystery there is still a final twist.

A great mystery novel for diehard fans as well as the occasional reader.
