A Mind to Murder

A Mind to Murder is the 2nd novel in the Adam Dalgliesh mystery series by P.D. James. I have several more of these in my tbr stack.

from the back of the book:
When the administrative head of the Steen Psychiatric Clinic is found dead with a chisel in her heart, Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard is called in to investigate. Dalgliesh must analyze the deep-seated anxieties and thwarted desires of patients and staff alike to determine which of their unresolved conflicts resulted in murder.

With "discernment, depth, and craftsmanship," wrote the Chicago Daily News, A Mind to Murder "is a superbly satisfying mystery."

I've also read these other books from the series:

#1 Cover Her Face
#5 The Black Tower
#7 A Taste for Death
#10 A Certain Justice
#11 Death in Holy Orders
