Friends this is my review of An Unsuitable Job for a Woman by P.D.James. One of the good things about buying a book is that it can be put on a book case and then found again at a later date and reread and enjoyed. Though the book was written some time ago, I came across it on our shelves, when sorting through some books, and thought I would re-read it.
The key character is Cordelia Gray, who inherits the Pryde Detective agency, after her boss has committed suicide. Her first assignment as twenty-two year old detective is by Sir Ronald Callendar. He wants her to find out what happened to his son Mark, who has died is suspicious circumstances.
Mark was a Cambridge student, but he then dropped out. Cordelia quickly finds out that all is not what it seems, and, Mark's death is not one of suicide, but something far more serious.
This was an enjoyable read, and was as much about the why as well as the who, especially as it has a nice double twist at the end, but to say more would spoil the book.
A was a good read for a bank holiday weekend, book 19 week 14 fiction 17 (3 on audio) non fiction 2.
