Well, yeahit was okay It was old fashioned and something I was in the mood for Unfortunately the plot was full of characters that didn t resonate with me Dalgliesh is a reluctant sleuth who d rather be doing nothing on holiday than getting involved with self absorbed suspects in the murder of a mystery writer And worse, he just wasn t very interesting as a character He writes poetry, but seemed in a foul mood throughout this novel and not in any kind of endearing way The murder itself is far too elaborately plotted, and the motives behind the crimes kind of just ring hollow But I ve liked other novels by P.D James, so I m not going to hold this one against her. This is certainly not one of James better mysteries The premise is wonderful and the opening scenes really grab you into the story But quickly it just goes flat like a car getting bogged in a muddy swamp One then feels like they are sinking, with no escape and that pretty much sums up the narrative.I found the characters a little TOO similar Really A village that doesn t have any facilities holds that many writers I don t think so There were the typical comments such as a male not fitting the normal stereotype being a pansy or a queer There is the derogatory language towards a girl who isn t pretty and so on.What I did like was James eye for the social detail Each and every one of her earlier novels highlight the poverty that was in Britain in the 1960s 70s Where other countries were spending up big on goods, Britain was this grimy nation that had a huge divide between the very haves and the have nots a divide that crossed the Middle Class, and not at the Lower Class, as would be expected The night club scene and dialogue was something out of one of those Rank kitchen sink bw dramas a tart in tights drinking pink gin, with smeared make up was a phrase that entered my head a lot here it is from a forgotten 1960s pulp novel I read decades ago, but which has never left me.There is also a storm and flood section that is very exciting and well paced Ultimately, I found the resolution and outing of the killer really unbelievable and too far fetched How it was all achieved was just plain silly and the motive is so weak, it is almost laughable It was all very disappointing.Read this book for the social commentary, for the open chapter, and for the wonderful storm scene, but give that mystery a miss. @Download Book Ï Unnatural Causes õ Unnatural Causes

Fridays At PM, October ,Dates And Times May Vary Check Local Listings Although P.D James is an excellent writer and her mysteries are interesting and intelligent, I just can t seem to warm up to Adam Dalgliesh He s such a cold fish and it doesn t help that he or James, through him seems to have a certain disdain for the audience, who are the suspects in Dalgliesh s case and the reader in James s case In this mystery, James avoids a typical reveal where Dalgliesh sits everyone down and lets them and the reader know how and why the crime occurred Instead, she has him discover the how about 75 pages from the end, but though he tells the detective in charge of the investigation Dalgliesh himself is on vacation visiting his aunt and not officially involved with the case and helps to solve the murder, James keeps this revelation from the reader, which feels to me like a cheat Dalgliesh is observing something, the knowledge comes to him, we never knew how, and that is that End of story Now, we do get the why and how at the very end, but never Dalgliesh s epiphany and we re left to feel how he has outgrown the satisfaction of being proved right He had known who for a long time now and since Monday night he had known how But to the suspects the day would bring a gratifying vindication and they could be expected to make the most of it Well, since I m in there, as an observer along with the suspects because James keeps so much hidden from the reader, I feel that Dalgliesh is tired of me, too And that s just off putting.Now, as I mentioned, James s writing is good as always, and the murder takes place in a seaside town full of authors of one kind or another, which is fun But that ending really soured it for me and I ll be hard pressed to pick up the next Dalgliesh mystery unless I m snowed in and have gone through all of my Christies. This book was published in 1967 and was the 3rd book in the Dalgliesh series Back then a mystery novel was expected to be in the 200 page range, and this one was at 205 pages less than half as long as the last P.D James book I read which was written in the 21st Century.I m pretty sure that my feeling that the book was ended as quickly as the author could arrange it was, in part, due to the fact that she only had 200 pages available to her The explanation of the mystery is made by a taped confession of the murderer which is listened to after she has died attempting to kill an additional two people During the confession you discover that the murderer has actually killedpeople than you were originally aware of.Although I can understand why the author needed to end her book this abruptly because of a lack of space, I still am giving the book only 3 stars It truly is not as good a book as her later work. Through the years I ve read some of P.D James mysteries featuring Adam Dagleish And I ve seen some of the books portrayed in television dramas Consequently, I m confused as to which books I m familiar with But I have definitely not read or seen this one Dagleish takes a holiday to visit his Aunt, who lives near the coast It is winter,and James writing brings that forcefully to mind as Adam is caught up in a murder investigation that takes him out to deal with the elements Other than Adam and his Aunt, the rest of the cast is such a deplorable group of whinny, self centered people, that I could hardly stand them That s mainly why I gave it only three stars I didn t care for the recording artist who read the book, either But James elegant writing saves the audio version It is as always an intriguing mystery. Written in the sixties, this mystery is done in the English Agatha Christie style A middle class man is murdered and the police find him surrounded by quirky, irritating characters, all of whom have motive and opportunity Who did it Who cares James strong suit is characters, to the point where it s overkill In a modern mystery, we might meet the characters, understand them, and move on Here, we are pounded with scene after scene of characters acting in their peculiar ways is that a clue Not really.James does a decent job of building a complex mystery There are plenty of red herrings everybody is a possible suspect, and there s some tension, in spite of endless conversations between weirdos But in the end the solution is too bizarre to accept too complicated, too impossible, even if the motives make sense It turns out the real mystery is how it was done, and the answer is just too far fetched. I very much enjoyed the quality of the prose but found it difficult to sympathize with any of the characters Even Dalgliesh and his Aunt both of whom seem to havedimension that the other flat, insipid, self absorbed residents of Monksmere Head were provided with so little context and backstory that I felt very little connection Aunt Jane seemed to be someone I would like to know better, but James never provides the reader with the chance in this book And the revelation of the murderer at the conclusion seemed contrived how convenient that the confession tape was in that bag Dalgliesh grabbed and gratuitously ugly And even the best language cannot redeem that sort of letdown at the end of a novel, especially a mystery I m not writing James off, but I m certianly not racing out to get another Adam Dalgliesh novel he s no Peter Wimsey. Published in 1967, this is the third Adam Dalgliesh mystery following on from Cover Her Face and A Mind to Murder Dalgliesh is still involved with Deborah Riscoe, who appeared in the first novel, and is considering whether or not to propose to her Does he love her enough to change his life and perhaps put his work second While considering this change, he goes to stay with his aunt, Jane Dalgliesh An avid bird watcher, she lives in a small community near Monksmere bird reserve, which seems to be populated apart from her mostly by writers either authors or critics These include Maurice Seton, a detective novelist, Sylvia Kedge, his crippled secretary, his half brother Digby Seton, critic Oliver Latham, Justin Bryce, R.B Sinclair, the reclusive great novelist and romance writer Celia Calthrop and her niece, Elizabeth.The book unfolds with the discovery of Maurice Seton found floating in a small dingy, minus his hands This macabre death throws the small group of writers into recriminations, suspicion and fear Although the wonderfully named D I Inspector Reckless is in charge, Dalgliesh finds himself dragged into the investigation This will take him from the idyllic countryside of Monksmere to Soho nightclubs, as he attempts to discover who was responsible for Seton s disappearance and bizarre death Although this novel is set amongst a group of authors, which should appeal to me, I found this less enjoyable or perhaps less believable than the previous book Of course, being P D James I still loved the plot and characters, but it just seemed a little too staged I am, though, enjoying re reading the series very much and enjoyed learning a littleabout the taciturn Dalgliesh. .
