    Book Description

    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."

    Reader Reviews
    1 of 2 people found the following review helpful: A mind to murder, May 23, 2003 Reviewer: Shimmy from CT USA The book I read was A mind to murder by P.D. James. It was about a lady who was found murdered in a record room, with a chisel in her heart and a werid wooden symbol in her arm. This book takes place in a Clinic where all employees are trying to find the murderer. They are calling people and asking them to come and help. At the end of the book, they find out who did it. I would recommend this book to kids 13 and up, because it might scare children younger then that.
