A clue about Adam Dalgliesh
The Private Patient, the latest Adam Dalgliesh mystery from PD James, has arrived in America, and Baroness James, now 88, has dropped a clue about the future.
The author of 20 novels, which she began writing when she was 42, James was asked in the Wall Street Journal (14 November, no link) whether her latest book, which carries a sense of closure, is the final Adam Dalgliesh novel. She answered,
"If it were the last, I would have finished on a good note."
Her books are beautifully written, with fascinating social details. James seems as interested in how people live as who committed murder.
