One of our most admired mystery writers, P. D. James, draws the characters of Pride and Prejudice into a delicious tale of murder and emotional mayhem and “does so with a charm that will beguile even the most demanding Janeite” (Evening Standard).
“A glorious plum pudding of a whodunit” —NPR’s Fresh Air
The story of everything Hemingway loved in life, and lost. “Enthralling” (James Salter, New York Review of Books).
Indispensable…Hendrickson gives the ravaged old man something more honest: a fair summing-up of a life like no other.”
—Howell Raines, The Washington Post
The latest delightful installment in the Isabel Dalhousie mystery series set in cold, foggy, history-drenched Scotland. “This totally absorbing novel has as its primary focus the grip of the past, as Isabel helps a woman given up for adoption find her biological father. Isabel is everything you’d want in a philosopher, but she is also quirky and witty and made more human by the longing she still sometimes feels for a beautiful but bad love in her past.” —Booklist (starred review)
