Unnatural Causes – P.D. James

Unnatural Causes - PD James book cover

Complex British police procedural. Some would say James’s style is slow and meandering, but I find it rather meditative. Sometimes you just want to sink into something deep and complex and take a break from the ‘noise’ of the world. 

This is Book 3 of James’s Adam Dalgliesh series. I have been re-reading the series and picked this as my favourite of the 14 books.  

British police procedural: Unnatural Causes – P.D. James

Maurice Seton was a famous mystery writer—but no murder he ever invented was more grisly than his own death. 

When his corpse is found in a drifting dinghy with both hands chopped off at the wrists, ripples of horror spread among his bizarre circle of friends. 

Now it’s up to brilliant Scotland Yard inspector, Adam Dalgliesh, and his extraordinary aunt to uncover the shocking truth behind the writer’s death sentence, before the plot takes another murderous turn.
