    1. This is the fourth book in the Adam Dalgliesh series I have recently been re reading these novels and, although I have enjoyed the previous books, this certainly represents a seeming increase in ability and confidence in the writing and storyline Shroud for a Nightingale, is set in a nurse training school and P D James worked for the NHS for many years, so it is an environment she would have been extremely familiar with.The story begins with Miss Muriel Beale, an Inspector who is setting out for [...]


    2. Student nurses are dropping dead at the Nightingale nurse training school Does someone there harbor a secret past Hint yes Published in 1971, this is James s fourth novel, and of these, her most robust and satisfying It feels miles away from her earlier, Christie esque stylings You wouldn t find a passage like this in any of her first three, for example She had given him a depressing glimpse into the stultifying lack of privacy, and of the small pettiness and subterfuges with which people living [...]


    3. I had heard of P.D James before but had never read any of her works, and I didn t really know she wrote mysteries So I was quite pleasantly surprised by Shroud for a Nightingale so much so that I ve since read another James and am onto a third Shroud is a great caper, written in the 70s I think it s aged extremely well in fact, I think the whole plot and setting is made all the creepy and ominous by the somewhat antiquated medical procedures that figure prominently in the plot I defy anyone to [...]


    4. This was another great Adam Dalgliesh story I am taking the series slow so that I can enjoy what P.D James left us.This story takes place at a nurses training school A place that is full of secrets and lies Read this story and see why James was an award winning crime author.



    5. My grandmother left this for my mother to read, and bored, I started it waiting for her in the car Boredom, too, is the only reason I can give for my finishing it I was mesmerized by how entirely uninteresting it was, both the story and the literary style.I don t read mysteries, and essentially all of my related presumptions are based on Cluedo and The Westing Game, but even compared to those, Shroud for a Nightingale is kind of a dud So two student nurses are killed, the Scotland Yard is called [...]


    6. 1971, 4 Supt Adam Dalgleish, Scotland Yard, Nightingale House, just outside London Nursing students living in a creepy old hospital building find murder and lots of intrigue erudite, old fashioned closed community manor house style mystery but with interesting modern 1970 twists and a bit of then relevant British history classic cosy police procedural.Nursing sisters are an alien breed to most US folks, but if you ve read or watched a lot of British set mysteries you ll have a bit of understandi [...]


    7. I believe it was Red Skelton who said that to be a writer you have to be a close observer of human nature, but not so close that you start to hate everyone P.D James seems to frequently drift across the line into hating everybody The men in James world tend to be pompous, self absorbed, preening narcissists, but they are almost nice compared to the women The women are often petty, manipulative, mean spirited and deliberately cruel Shroud for a Nightingale is about a series of murders at a small [...]



    8. Wow James outdid herself this time Really, really enjoyed this one She keeps getting better I don t deny that I struggled with the first one, but I m so glad that I stuck it out It really helps to have a friend to read it with Inspector Dalgliesh s character keeps coming out and in each subsequent novel and he becomes intriguing the longer you know him I also like how James just gives you tidbits of insight into him with each book she keeps you coming back for Started 24 May 2008


    9. I am rereading P D James Dalgliesh series and am a bit disappointed with it Apparently, nostalgia had made the series appear much better than I remembered Oh well In the midst of reading my second Colin Dexter novel, I realized that I found it boring, so when I received Shroud of the Nightingale in the mail, I eagerly read it, only to discover that while I thought I had read all of the Dalgliesh series, I had actually missed this one I give this book 3 stars because of the first half of the nove [...]


    10. A nursing school inspection ends horribly with the death of a student during a demonstration of intra gastric feeding tubes This gruesome beginning is compounded with a second student death, and the local police are exchanged for the Yard s Inspector Adam Dalgliesh whose implacable determination to get at the truth is welcomed by the nursing staff with varying degrees of coolness.I m not sure where in the series this one falls, but this Dalgliesh novel was just a bit too staid and dated to hold [...]


    11. I waver between 3 and four stars PD James writes masterful mysteries that are intelligent and interesting But those are the only levels on which they will effect you I don t find myself relating or particularly liking the protagonist he s very intelligent and you can respect him, you just don t care that much you don t get attached to the recurring characters I honestly don t think you are supposed to really I think PD James set out to write exactly the type of mystery I described in the second [...]


    12. I was reading this, and it was all about par for the course for PD James you know, unpleasant people, beautiful writing, OTT foreshadowings of horror to come, rather odd emphasis on period architecture when suddenly it was all UNEXPECTED DANCE COMPETITION SURPRISE NAZIS I would never have thought that any author could make the revelation of surprise Nazis during a tense and angry tango incredibly depressing, but PD James managed it Well done.


    13. This was my first P.D James book, and I did enjoy it, but it wasn t anything earth shattering either.Shroud for a Nightingale is book 4 in the Adam Dalgliesh series, but can easily be read as a standalone Dalgliesh is a detective, and in this story he is called out to a nurse training school after two suspected murders take place Two student nurses have been poisoned in horrific ways, and its Dalgliesh s job to figure out who did it.This book is a pretty typical murder mystery It goes into a lot [...]


    14. Granted this book is older than me, so the dated stereotypes and gender roles within it partially lose their sting I tried to read it that way, in its historical place as a very psychologically outdated book as I do with Agatha Christie for example and still derive some enjoyment but it still rankled even so.The story itself is quite ingenious, it has the right amounts of twists and turns, complexities and red herrings The stumbling block for me is character and in particular my inability to lik [...]


    15. At several points the main character is discussing the case with his assistant and, despite the fact they ve already talked about the evidence and what they think and he s the current viewpoint character and we follow both of them through everything important they do, their important deductions are covered up with sudden reported speech, like he said what had happened, his assistant said yes that s obvious Like are you kidding me how lazy can you getThe book is OK enough but the denouement is pr [...]


    16. Not the best of James, not even the best of her Dalgliesh stories, but a solid mystery in the classic vein The surprise is how James pulled off a very traditional plot line with remarkably few tricks in an environment and with a cast that is believably inhabiting 1970 For comparison, look at Agatha Christie from this same period All of her characters continue to inhabit a 1930s world, or are decrepit oldsters confused by the kids and their crazy sex, drugs, and rock and roll Elsewhere in the mys [...]


    17. 4 Adam Dalgliesh British mystery, in which the Scotland Yard detective and his team are off to a nursing school to investigate the untimely death of two nursing students both dead by poison of different types a couple of weeks apart One was administered during a demonstration of gastric feeding during an inspection by the General Nursing Council, when Nurse Pearce, playing the role of the patient has her stomach dissolved by a caustic substance added to the milk feed The second death of Nurse Fa [...]


    18. Well, it was a good book i read it with excitement and it kept my interest till the end It was nicely written not tiring or boring at all Also a thing that i really liked is the way the writer described the different personalities without being subjective and the fact that all these different personalities were interacting with each other throughout the book with all king of intresting behaviors that you do not usually find in most books.i would also like to point out that Mrs P.D James was 90 y [...]


    19. Good, verging on very good, although a bit too mannered and slow Very deep psychological portrayals of the characters provide the big win The plot was nicely convoluted, although the denouement wasn t much of a surprise This was among the books listed on an ancient all time bests newspaper clipping I found in my files I think anyone who is a fan of mysteries should probably have already read it, right



    20. An excellent mystery that will leave you guessing James at her bestcolewbrown 2015I haven t anything to offer There isn t any help We are all alone, all of us from the moment of birth until we die Our past is our present and our future We have to live with ourselves until there isn t any time left If you want salvation look to yourself There s nowhere else to look P D James Shroud For a Nightingale p 101 If you are proposing to commit a sin it is as well to commit it with intelligence Otherwise [...]


    21. James has raised the stakes in the 4th Dalgliesh mystery, with murders frequent and brutal than in the previous books As in the first three novels, the case hinges on information the reader simply cannot surmise from the clues in the book In fact, there are probably enough clues here to figure this one out, at least in terms of motive, if not the identity of the murderer But as I work my way through the Dalgleish mysteries, I m finding that I don t make a huge effort to solve the case I just d [...]


    22. Wonderfully written odd to read an earlier book and be able to pick up on how it s put together There s information near the end, for example, that should have been presented earlier in order to be strictly fair, but would have given too much away if presented earlier on So be it it s kind of neat to see a master at work.


    23. Que una novela negra escrita hace m s de 40 a os haya logrado mantenerme relativamente entretenida toda una tarde tiene su m rito.


    24. I commented last time how PD James, even though she seemed to get the puzzle mechanics of this kind of mystery writing and could show us how superficial the genre is through self reference, needed to find a style of her own to make any kind of mark The problem is that Christie blazed so much ground that writers have to deal with her legacy in this particular style of mystery Back then, it was enough to have a stimulating guessing game with the author But in this day and age, how do you keep the [...]


    25. Phyllis Dorothy James, Baroness James of Holland Park, OBE, FRSA, FRSL, known as P D James, is an English crime writer and a life peer in the House of Lords She was born in August 1920.This is a book my mother gave me many years ago I probably read it then, but had forgotten the story, so when I cam across it, I read it again.Nightingale House is where a group of third year student nurses live while they learn the art of nursing There is a routine inspection of the nursing school by the General [...]


    26. I enjoyed this P D James is a remarkably consistent writer, so if you like closed community whodunits, lots of twists and turns and false alibis and I happen to do so this is your novel Otherwise you ll find it slow and ponderous.It is set in a nursing training home in the late sixties Its description of nursing is inadvertently a bit of social history itself, for I think nursing training has changed dramatically since those days The story is slow starting, not withstanding the grisly murder in [...]


    27. Actually, I d give this a 3 1 2 I enjoyed reading my 1st P.D James mystery novel, but also found it a little slow and not overly exciting I thought the base of the story was interesting, I like Detective Adam Dalgleish and even , I like how the story weaves characters lives together, and that every action has a counter action I ll take this 1970 s mystery novel over the unbelievable, gruesome and violent thrillers that are out now any ol time Favorite Quote You re not a thief You stole once that [...]
