An Unsuitable Job for a Woman by P.D. James

10.70

“I’m reading all of P.D. James’s Adam Dalgliesh crime thrillers at the minute but this short spin-off novel about Cordelia Gray, a 22 year-old private detective, drawn into the apparent suicide of a 22 year-old Cambridge student is great fun – thrilling, darkly humourous & full of acute observations about human life, it’s well worth a read even if you can’t guess ‘whodunnit’…” Bob.

Meet Cordelia Gray: twenty-two, tough, intelligent and now sole inheritor of the Pryde Detective Agency. Her first assignment finds her hired by Sir Ronald Callender to investigate the death of his son Mark, a young Cambridge student found hanged in mysterious circumstances. Required to delve into the hidden secrets of the Callender family, Cordelia soon realises it is not a case of suicide, and that the truth is entirely more sinister.
