Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The young women of Nightingale House are there to learn to nurse and comfort the suffering. But when one of the students plays patient in a demonstration of nursing skills, she is horribly, brutally killed. Another student dies equally mysteriously, and it is up to Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard to unmask a killer who has decided to prescribe murder as the cure for all ills. The New York Times called Shroud for a Nightingale "mystery at its best."

Synopsis:

The mysterious and tragic deaths of two student nurses send Adam Dalgliesh, Chief Superintendent of Scotland Yard, to hunt the vicious killer seeking refuge in the Nightingale House.

This was a really excellent mystery! I saw the BBC adaptation on PBS a while back, so I had a vague recollection as to who the perpetrator was, but that didn't lessen my enjoyment of this at all.
