It’s a Mystery: The Private Patient, by P.D. James

If  The Private Patient is truly PDJ’s final Dalgliesh novel, she’s taking him out in style! AD has always been the most human, humane, and cultured of the detective genre, and at long last, he’s gained some well deserved happiness. Although most of his cases have been firmly closed at the end of each story, in this one, James has left some wiggle room. This is a fine police procedural/human interest story, as beautifully written and atmospheric as we’ve come to expect from her. Five stars for yet another thoroughly enjoyed little masterpiece.
