Storyline

Scotland Yard Commander Adam Dalgliesh has been on leave following the death on duty of a member of his team, DS Sarah Hillier. His superiors order him back to work to investigate the murder of the Director of the Steen Clinic, which specializes in psychiatric cases. Dalgliesh and his team can't quite figure out why they've been assigned to what seems to be a straightforward murder case but it's clear that his superiors want him to get in and out as quickly as possible. There is any number of possible suspects and as Dalgliesh is fond to say, the motive for murder is inevitably greed or love. Written by garykmcd

Nothing like the book!
14 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First I have to say that I am a big fan of ADAM DALGLIESH and think Roy Marsden is fabulous in the part. I read this book and loved it. The story begins with Adam at a cocktail party getting called away to investigate the brutal murder at a London Psychiatric Clinic which caters to upper class neurotics. The body of the admin officer is found with a chisel thru her heart. How Dalgliesh uncovers the motive for the killing and the wonderful cast of characters PD James created are all lost in this filmed version. The first thing that they did was change the location from the central area of London to some far remote location that Adam arrives to by helicopter.The characters are very weak and there is none of the suspense of the book. Who writes these screen plays anyway? (obviously they don't bother to read the book) and the ending is so far fetched. If I was PD James I would be very ticked that they made such a hash out of my work.
