Private Patient an Adam Dalgliesh Mystery


Private Patient an Adam Dalgliesh Mystery Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With all the qualities that P. D. Jamess readers have come to expect: a masterly psychological and emotional richness of characterization, a vivid evocation of place and a credible and exciting mystery.

When the notorious investigative journalist, Rhoda Gradwyn, books into Mr. Chandler-Powells private clinic in Dorset for the removal of a disfiguring, long-standing facial scar, she has every prospect of a successful operation by a distinguished surgeon, a weeks peaceful convalescence in one of Dorsets most beautiful manor houses and the beginning of a new life. She will never leave Cheverell Manor alive. When Adam Dalgliesh and his team are called in to investigate the murder - and a second death occurs - even more complicated problems than the question of innocence or guilt arise.

From the Hardcover edition.
