I've been reading a few authors whose first books in well-loved mysteries series were written in the 50s and 60s. I don't seem to like any of the characters, including the main recurring investigators. Here Dalgliesh seems like someone I would not want to know. Certainly not my feeling with the later P.D. James mysteries.

The suspects and victim are equally unlikable most of the way through the book. A murder is announced on the first page, but takes a long time to happen. Dalgliesh, in his first appearance, is not the full-blown detective we'll come to know as the series develops. But the beginnings of his character are here, including some glimpses of his private life. A cut above the usual country house mystery.

This is the first novel in the Adam Dalgliesh series. The violence is mild and no sexual content.
