James Pd-Taste For Death (2002)
|When a series of threatening letters arrive at his fashionable London home, prominent Government Minister Sir Paul Berowne calls his old friend, Commander Adam Dalgliesh, for assistance.|
Berowne's own household is a challenge. His exquisite wife makes no secret of her adulterous affair with a fashionable surgeon. His only daughter, deeply involved in left-wing politics, has rejected her Conservative father. He is even resented by his own, strong-willed mother, whose favored son was killed in an IRA terrorist ambush.
Dalgiesh has barely started on the case when a series of bizarre deaths turn the informal investigation into an urgent assignment.
Editor's NoteThis miniseries is adapted from P.D. James's popular novel of the same name and features Commander Adam Dalgliesh, the popular protagonist from many of James's previous books. Here, Dalgliesh has just finished getting Scotland Yard's Sensitive Crime Squad up and running when he is selected to investigate the mysterious and deadly world that lurks behind Government Minister Sir Paul Berowne's respectable facade.
