Commander Adam Dalgliesh, P. D. James' formidable and fascinating detective, returns to find himself enmeshed in a terrifying story of passion and mystery, and in love. The Dupayne, a small private museum in London devoted to the interwar years 1919-1939, is in turmoil. As its trustees argue over whether it should be closed, one of them is brutally and mysteriously murdered. Yet even as Commander Dalgliesh and his team proceed with their investigation, a second corpse is discovered. Someone in the Dupayne is prepared to kill and kill again. Still more sinister, the murders appear to echo the notorious crimes of the past featured in one of the museum's galleries: the Murder Room.
The case is fraught with danger and complications from the outset, but for Dalgliesh the complications are unexpectedly profound. His new relationship with Emma Lavenham (introduced in the last Dalgliesh novel, Death in Holy Orders) is at a critical stage. Now, as he moves closer and closer to a solution to the puzzle, he finds himself driven further and further from commitment to the woman he loves.
The Murder Room is a story dark with the passions that lie at the heart of crime, a masterful work of mystery and psychological intricacy. It proves yet again that P.D. James fully deserves her place among the best of modern novelists.



" The Murder Room is James' most suspenseful, atmospheric novel in years and has no shortage of surprise twists." ( The New York Times Book Review)

Schöner Krimi-Schmöker

Als Engländerin liebe ich Hörbücher, die mit einer so schönen englischen Stimme gelesen werden. Die Geschichte ist spannend, was mir aber bei p.d. james immer wieder sehr gut gefällt, ist die Abwesenheit von übertrieben brutalen Beschreibungen oder Effekthascherei. Hier geht es mehr um die Charaktere und die Aufbau der Spannung.

Extremely satisfying

I really enjoyed this novel. Just found it a shame that it was read by an American.
