Not too much to say about this one I thought it was a solid mystery for the second book in the Adam Dalgliesh series I just found myself getting bored after a while since it was really obvious who the murderer was at least to me There are some other secrets that are spilled but other than a couple of major ones at the end none of the rest had much to do with anything I thought I do think the flow could have been tighter too We just stayed too long with the suspects and I wanted to be walked through Dalgliesh s brain as he figured out the guilty party Too bad though that this one shows how Dalgliesh was off about who done it and whyA Mind to Murder finds the administrative head of the Steen Psychiatric Clinic murdered The woman Miss Enid Bolam was bludgeoned and then stabbed and left in the basement of the clinic When the doctors and nurses find her it becomes apparent that whoever did the murder never left the doors are locked and it has to be one of their own who did it Adam Dalgliesh is called up after sitting through a reception for his recent book of poetry yeah I hard paused there too and feels nothing but dread since he feels like the murderer is not done James walks us through Dalgliesh s life since the first murder where we came across him It s been three years and Adam still thinks of Deborah see Cover Her Face but realizes that he s not ready to start again with another woman Adam works methodically through all of the suspects and hits on someone fairly early that he doesn t care for or trust Just like Cover Her Face though we have a victim that a lot of people had a hard time liking and finding to be too black and white about things However unlike with Cover Her Face I thought James did a good job of showing us another side of Enid Bolam She was a woman who liked flowers and children The other characters in this one started to feel a bit tiresome after a while at least to me We have Dr Paul Steiner and Dr James Baguley both men with secrets We also have Doctor Frederica Saxton s story line that also gave me hard pause too I don t even get the purpose of that whole thing except for Dalgliesh to have someone else speak to who has even messed up views of marriage than he does Enid s cousin Nurse Marion Bolam also worked at the clinic There was a bigger cast of suspects to think on in this one but I thought that James did a good job with developing them For example one of the porters Peter Nagle we find out is an artist and only working at the clinic for money He s supposedly very talented but I find myself thinking he was creepy When James reveals his relationship that he is having with someone there we pull back another layer dealing with him The writing I thought was good but honestly the flow was off I think the book needed to be edited a bit tighter since we tended to wander around in some of the characters story lines way too long For example the whole thing with Frederica was one of those story lines The setting of this clinic also echoes some locked door mysteries a la Christie though I have to say that this one wasn t that intriguing We are given some very blatant clues in the beginning of the book and through another character telling their roommate about something they overheard After that I was in a hurry for Dalgliesh to get there already The ending though at one point made me worry that I had guessed wrong but nope instead we get information about something else and then jump over into the epilogue that takes place months later

Very reminiscent of Agatha Christie s work PD James really does demonstrate the same mystery writing skills that Christie did She lays out the crime and all the various suspects and then sets Dalgleish and Martin among them to sort things out Two police cats amongst the psychiatric pigeons Just like Poirot Dalgleish is able to see through the clutter to the heart of things Unlike Poirot he is able to do so without being annoyingly self satisfied Perhaps because I just recently read Christie s They Do It with Mirrors set in a juvenile reform school this novel seemed similar In fact they were written within a few years of each other and share the institutional settings and closed room aspects to the stories James throws plenty of details of the psychiatric setting at the reader using them as distractions from the usual motivations for murder As I said when I reviewed the first Dalgleish novel I see this detective as one of the sources of one of my favourite policemen Armand Gamache Louise Penny s main character Which reminds me I need to track down the next book in that series too The Routledge Handbook of Postsecularity reminiscent of Agatha Christie s work PD James Forbidden Hollister #2 really does demonstrate the same mystery writing skills that Christie did She lays out the crime and all the various suspects and then sets Dalgleish and Martin among them to sort things out Two police cats amongst the psychiatric pigeons Just like Poirot Dalgleish is able to see through the clutter to the heart of things Unlike Poirot he is able to do so without being annoyingly self satisfied Perhaps because I just SNAP recently Sculpting a Galaxy: Inside the Star Wars Model Shop read Christie s They Do It with Mirrors set in a juvenile Who Was George Washington? reform school this novel seemed similar In fact they were written within a few years of each other and share the institutional settings and closed Rašyti gali kiekvienas room aspects to the stories James throws plenty of details of the psychiatric setting at the Drugs and Child Maltreatment reader using them as distractions from the usual motivations for murder As I said when I Türkiye İslam ve Sekülarizm reviewed the first Dalgleish novel I see this detective as one of the sources of one of my favourite policemen Armand Gamache Louise Penny s main character Which The Heart's Lonely Secret Orphan Train West reminds me I need to track down the next book in that series too

read & download ê eBook or Kindle ePUB µ P.D. James review A Mind to Murder Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Is found horribly murdered And in an explosive atmosphere of psychiatry sex and drugs Dalgliesh. I continue to appreciate James writing style and her characterizations This installment in the series was interesting for its setting in a psychiatric out patient clinic This gives us the limited number of perpetrators for the murder which takes place in the clinic We do get outside of the clinic to learn about the home environments of potential suspects and also of the victimShe lets us know Dalgliesh better I d like to know his partner Martin a little better and hope to as the series continues I was surprised to see that I gave the first in the series 4 stars and am happy to give this one the same I liked this one so there is definitely a range to be seen in my 4 star group
