A Taste for Death

A Taste for Death is another -the 7th- in P.D. James' Adam Dalgliesh mystery novels. It won the Silver Dagger award in 1986. In this one the murders take place in the church vestry, and religious experience figures prominently in the case.

from the back of the book:
When the vestry of St. Matthew's Church becomes the blood-soaked scene of a double murder, Scotland Yard Commander Adam Dalgliesh faces an intriguing conundrum: How did an upper-crust Minister come to die next to a neighborhood derelict of the lowest order? Challenged with the investigation of a crime that appears to have endless motives, Dalgliesh explores the sinister web spun around a half-burnt diary and a violet-eyed widow who is pregnant and full of malice - all the while hoping to fill the gap of logic that joined these two disparate men in bright red death...

Theology Today has a review.

I've read a couple of these, including the first one, and have enjoyed them. I will continue to pick them up and add them to my tbr stack, but I may start trying to read them in order.
