Another of PD James’ intricately woven mysteries set on an island with a range of well drawn characters, each one playing their part as the denouement comes in a thrilling account of detection and bravery of the two officers in Adam Dalgleish’s small team. He is absent throughout much of the narrative isolated and in the grip of SARS as his team come into their own. There is justice and redemption finally.

Beautifully read thrilling story full of characters some of whose true selves were only revealed at the end. Informative about forensic archeology and with an extraordinarily believable account of wartime event that echoed over the years to bring further heartbreak to surviving family members.

Well crafted story, characters drawn in detail, the Isle of Lewis part of the story, the landscape, the weather, the culture, all made the story very rich and compelling. The denouement was utterly shocking yet made sense as the conclusion to a thread in the story that was present from the start, woven throughout, made as if on a metaphorical loom itself. Beautifully read, the two parallel threads essential parts of the weaving.

Brilliant story

Beautifully told story of courage of young girl who fled a murder scene and kept running until she fell in love with a man she could trust to help her bring the perpetrators to justice. As a heroine she was utterly believable. The reader took us into a vividly drawn narrative that kept the tension going until end.
