Devices and Desires by P.D. James is the eighth Adam Dalgliesh mystery. Set against the remote Norfolk coastline under the shadow of a nuclear power station, a serial killer known as the Whistler is terrorising the neighbourhood.
When Commander Adam Dalgliesh visits Larksoken, a remote headland community on the Norfolk coast in the shadow of a nuclear power station, he expects to be engaged only in the sad business of tying up his aunt's estate. But the peace of Larksoken is illusory.
A serial killer known as the Whistler is terrorising the neighbourhood, and Dalgliesh is drawn into the lives of the headlanders when it quickly becomes apparent that the Whistler isn't the only murderer at work under the sinister shadow of the power station.

"Her storytelling is as consummate and fiendish as ever." (Independent on Sunday)
"The characters are vibrant, the writing distinguished, the descriptions of mood and landscape perfect, the ironic ending nicely cynical. And over it all, a haunting Norfolk mist of dread, loneliness and ancient history." (Sunday Express)

Great narration by Daniel again and it is a very interesting story but seemed strange to me Adam Dalglish was not running the investigation which held him back and I missed him. Otherwise very good as always but not my favourite
