The fourteenth Adam Dalgliesh Mystery.
When the notorious investigative journalist, Rhoda Gradwyn, booked into Mr Chandler-Powell's private clinic in Dorset for the removal of a disfiguring and long-standing facial scar, she had every prospect of a successful operation by a distinguished surgeon, a week's peaceful convalescence in one of Dorset's most beautiful manor houses, and the beginning of a new life. She was never to leave Cheverell Manor alive.
Dalgliesh and his team are called in to investigate the murder, and later a second death, which are to raise even more complicated problems than the question of innocence or guilt.

"Elegantly phrased, plot-driven, multi-layered and laced with menace." (Observer)
"The Private Patient is classic James." (Allan Massie, Scotsman)
As always from this brilliant writer, the plot twists and turns before......, I'll not spoil the climax. I will say, listen carefully, don't miss any of the clues.
