Duration: 22 hours 21 minutes


When the quiet Little Vestry of St. Matthew's Church becomes the blood-soaked scene of a double murder, Scotland Yard Commander Adam Dalgliesh faces an intriguing conundrum: How did an upper-crust Minister come to lie, slit throat to slit throat, next to a neighborhood derelict of the lowest order? Challenged with the investigation of a crime that appears to have endless motives, Dalgliesh explores the sinister web spun around a half-burnt diary and a violet-eyed widow who is pregnant and full of malice--all the while hoping to fill the gap of logic that joined these two disparate men in bright red death. . . .

    Written by one of the best. Sorry when it was finished.

  • Tana D

    The narrator leveraged the author's rich language, bringing the reader into the picture rather than listening from the sidelines. She was quite remarkable at keeping the many characters distinctly separate. PD James is an absolute favorite!
