Product description

Commander Adam Dalgliesh returns in "The Lighthouse", PD James' number three bestseller. Combe Island off the Cornish coast offers rest and seclusion to over-stressed professionals who have paid the price of getting to the top. But when one of these distinguished visitors is found hanging from the top of the island's lighthouse, murder - not suicide - is suspected. Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team are immediately called in: the investigation must be swift, discreet, decisive. However, Dalgliesh has his work cut out, since both residents and visitors to Combe Island guard their privacy well - even when murder makes them a suspect. Does the islanders' reticence betray a knowledge of the crime? Another death and Dalgliesh's own life in danger throws the entire investigation into jeopardy...From the author of "A Taste for Death" and "A Certain Justice" comes "The Lighthouse". PD James' hero Adam Dalgliesh returns for more. Praise for "The Lighthouse": "It does everything a crime novel should - and then a whole lot more". ("Daily Mail"). "PD James on top form and you will love it". ("The Spectator"). P.D. James is the queen of crime fiction and the author of numerous bestsellers including "A Taste for Death", "Original Sin", "A Certain Justice" and "Death in Holy Orders". She lives in London.
