I picked this up because I can't take any more crime books that are full of brutal murders and torture. And I guess this did fit the bill - very old style Agatha Christie with all the characters stuck on an island with a mix of rich people, servants and a priest. And it had a lighthouse for my lighthouse theme. Did have some brutal murders and a lot of torture of characters by their parents (mostly historical) but as the characters were all pretty wooden (and a lot of them rich) it didn't get under the skin.
I passed it on to John who is grateful for something really unchallenging. Sends him to sleep within minutes! ( )

Adam Dalgliesh is on the case.

Dalgliesh is sent off to investigate a possible suicide on a remote island right when he was about to embark on a weekend with his love, Emma. He knows she understands and will not complain, and perhaps this bothers him a little. But he needs to be the one on this case, as it is a sensitive situation.

Combe Island was owned by the Combe family, which eventually turned it into a haven for overworked high officials and others. It is not advertised and its temporary residents are protected from invasion of their privacy, even by workers on the island. So when one of those well-known visitors is found hanging from the lighthouse it is sensitive indeed, and rather than the local police, the island's managers call in a favor from Scotland Yard.

Dalgliesh arrives by helicopter with his team: DI Kate Miskin and Sergeant Francis Benton-Smith. Benton-Smith is new to the team and Miskin is wary, does not favor him with her confidences or, on her own, discuss the case with him.

The investigators interview everyone on the island, as they all had access to the victim. More than one had reason to take him out. The possibility that someone from off the island caused this apparent murder, though, is remote.

The pressure is on, and it gets worse when an incident causes further difficulty and Miskin and Benton-Smith are forced to work more closely together.

Will Dalgliesh's affair with Emma survive these interruptions? Will the killer or killers be found? ?

A good solid tale of detection. ( )

Perhaps it is even 3½ stars.

While I did enjoy this mystery, I felt that there was something about the structure of the novel that bothered me -- it was mostly a police procedural, albeit in an unusual set of circumstances, with the exception of the fairly long second section. Not only did this section differ in style, but for some reason, it also went back in time to before the first section. Why?? Couldn't this information have been conveyed to the reader while maintaining the style of the rest of the book? It seemed to me to be an uneasy mixture of modern novel & traditional police procedural which was unnecessary. ( )

I liked the story but P. D. James style of writing seems snobbish. He seems to go out of his way to use too many obscure words and phrases. I doubt I'll read another by him. ( )

"The Lighthouse" is too rooted in genre conventions to count originality as its strong suit. But it has deviousness to burn, and it also offers other enticements. It's the kind of book that boasts a wryly humorous Scrabble scene, not to mention a Scrabble-lover's vocabulary: Ms. James makes ready use of words like abseil, belay, symphysis and meiosis. It's a book that serves up figurative red herring as well as melon balls in orange sauce. Not a menu goes unmentioned.

Commander Adam Dalgliesh was not unused to being urgently summoned to non-scheduled meetings with unspecified people at inconvenient times, but usually with one purpose in common: he could be confident that somewhere there lay a dead body awaiting his attention.
