The Light House by P D James
Friends, this is my review of the book The Light House by P D James, which I read a few weeks ago. The observant will have noticed a slight gap between posts, but do not worry I still have been reading or listening to books just been too busy to write up and post my reviews.
This was a classic P D James, Commander Adam Dalgliesh mystery. Someone dies is it suicide or a murder?? Well of course it is murder and in the vane of all good murder mysteries, the murder occurs on an island. The island, Combe Island, has very limited access, so one of the residents present at the time of the murder must have done it. This is a very exclusive island getaway, with a small permanent staff and the guests who want to can get away from all the pressures of everyday life. Of course the Island has a lighthouse and this plays a central theme to the latter part of the story
The staff that includes a doctor and priest (both having left the mainland in semi-disgrace). Dalgliesh and his two assistants DI Kate Miskin, and Sergeant Francis Benton-Smith, quickly finds that most of the people on the island have a motive for murder.
The plot becomes more complicated as one of the guests infects Adam with SARS forcing him to his sick bed. Kate then takes over but Adam still manages to solve the crime.
