I don‘t think I‘ve ever read P.D. James before. I‘m not sure how I made that omission, but I decided to give this book a try over Christmas. I liked it, but didn‘t love it. I think I‘m just more used to Agatha Christie‘s lighter style. To be fair, I liked these stories enough to want to give a James full-length novel a try before I make a final judgement on her writing. I‘d still recommend this collection.
