Recently I read a USA Today article featuring British mystery author P.D. James. She is 90 years old, but still writing! She just got back from a voyage on the Queen Mary 2, where she gave lectures about her life and career. She also signed 600 books! She has written eighteen novels, fourteen of them featuring Adam Dalgliesh of New Scotland Yard. She is “a legend in her own right as a crime writer and a national treasure,” says Daniel Mallory, an expert on crime fiction at Oxford. After reading this, I’ve decided to re-read some of her books. The first Adam Dalgliesh book is Cover Her Face, which would be a good place to start if you want to get acquainted with her works.
