Author Info
P. D. James
P. D. James always dreamed of being a writer as a child, but her plans were temporarily waylaid by World War II and a subsequent successful career in civil service. She joined the Red Cross at the outset of the war and married Ernest White in 1941. Though they had two daughters together, their marriage was marred by chronic mental disturbances that her husband suffered after the war, which eventually led to his death. From 1949 to 1968, James worked in a hospital in London, but never forgot her first passion. In 1962 she published her first novel, "Cover Her Face", which featured Detective Adam Dalgliesh, the cultured, sensitive protagonist for which she is best known. Other critically acclaimed novels include the bestseller "Innocent Blood" (1980) and "An Unsuitable Job for a Woman" (1972), one of the first mysteries to feature a female investigator who is portrayed as capable of leading a dangerous investigation. James remained devoted to her career in civil service, working in the police department from 1968 to 1979 and serving on a variety of literary and arts councils after her retirement.
From the Publisher
Editors Note When the administrative head of the Steen Psychiatric Clinic is found dead with a chisel in her heart, Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard is called in to investigate. Dalgliesh must analyze the deep-seated anxieties and thwarted desires of patients and staff alike to determine which of their unresolved conflicts resulted in murder.With "discernment, depth, and craftsmanship," wrote the Chicago Daily News, A Mind to Murder "is a superbly satisfying mystery."
