P. D. James is “the reigning mistress of murder.” –Time

Handsome Cambridge dropout Mark Callender died hanging by the neck with a faint trace of lipstick on his mouth. When the official verdict is suicide, his wealthy father hires fledgling private investigator Cordelia Gray to find out what led him to self-destruction. What she discovers instead is a twisting trail of secrets and sins, and the strong scent of murder.

An Unsuitable Job for a Woman introduces P. D. James’s courageous but vulnerable young detective, Cordelia Gray, in a “top-rated puzzle of peril that holds you all the way” (The New York Times).

Sad little murder mystery

In this story, Cordelia Gray follows the advice of her late partner’s ex-boss, Inspector Dalgliesh, and “gets to know” the victim. That makes the story sadder and more personal than most of Agatha Christie’s homely murder mysteries. At the current price, this is great value, but I found the narrator’s high-pitched voice tiring.
