…Deceptive Cunning, but Essential Fairness: On Missing P.D. James

by Sharon Tucker

On November 27 of this past year, Baroness Phyllis Dorothy James of Holland Park passed away at her home in Oxford, England. Although I have not read her at all since she published, Death Comes to Pemberley and for some time before that neglected to read her last few Adam Dalgliesh mysteries, I unexpectedly felt a strong pang of loss. As a result, I have started reading Cover Her Face once more and I now plan carry on reading her books I have missed.
