The sixth mystery in the acclaimed and bestselling Adam Dalgliesh series, which led Newsweek to crown P.D. James "the new queen of crime." An evil-tempered forensic scientist is put to death, putting many of his colleagues out of misery. Dr. Lorrimer appeared to be the picture of a bloodless, coldly efficient scientist. Only when his brutally slain body is discovered and his secret past dissected does the image begin to change.
