I enjoyed this entire series, but it's so very dark that I was a little bit glad when it was over. ( )

Cuando la prestigiosa periodista de investigacion Rhoda Gradwyn ingresa en Cheverell Manor, la clinica privada del doctor Chandler-Powell, en Dorset, para quitarse una antiestetica y antigua cicatriz que le atraviesa el rostro, confia en ser operada por un cirujano celebre y pasar una tranquila semana de convalecencia en una de las mansiones mas bonitas de Dorset. Nada le hace presagiar que no saldra con vida de Cheverell Manor. El inspector Adam Dalgliesh y su equipo se encargaran del caso. Pronto toparan con un segundo asesinato, y tendran que afrontar problemas mucho mas complejos que la cuestion de la inocencia o la culpabilidad.

Odd to start out with #14 in a series and be able to say you enjoyed it. I liked the murder mystery. It was intricately woven, with each of the suspects having a lot of plausible reasons to commit the murder and real convictions about "who done it" held at bay until very near the end.

I felt less involved in the Commander and his squad, but that was natural, since this is a relationship that has been building for the reader since book one and book fourteen is obviously well into that relationship and I suspect coming to the end. For a book that was picked at random from a sale table, it was not disappointing at all. I had not read anything by James before, although I was well aware of her work. I will not hesitate to read her again. ( )

After thirty years, Rhoda Gradwyn has decided to get rid of the long facial scar on her left cheek. Something her father had given her at sixteen while he was drunk and angry. She had become very successful as an investigative journalist and felt it was now time for a change.

She chose to have the work done at Cheverell Manor in Dorset, Mr. Chandler-Powell’s private clinic (surgeons go by Mr. rather than Dr. in England). She was told there was no risk to her on the surgery. In about a week all would be done and she would be home. It didn’t turn out that way.

There are a number of secrets at the manor. Some that wind up connecting to Rhoda and cause her death.

Chandler-Powell had bought the manor from Sir Nicholas Cressett. His daughter works at the clinic/manor. There are the Westhalls, brother and sister, who live and work on the property. They have a connection to Robin Boyton, who is also a friend of Rhoda and stays in one of the cottages on the manor property. There is Sister Flavia Holland, the head nurse, who also has some nice curves. The Bostocks are the cooks for the manor. He has dreams of his own restaurant. They also live on the premises. Quite a nice selection of possible suspects, which is what they become, when Rhoda is found dead in her bed the morning following her surgery.

Commander Dalgliesh, of New Scotland Yard, is called in to investigate per orders from 10 Downing Street. Dalgleish finds there are secrets and past crimes that shade the current case. Not only does he have to unravel the current case, he has to unravel and connect up the old crimes to make sense of the current case.

Bit by bit, Dalgleish uncovers and puts together the pieces to get a full picture and solution to who, what, why and how Rhoda was murdered. ( )

The last Dalgliesh book, and she gave it an ending kind of ending. It read as though PD James would have preferred to just describe a lot of buildings and throw in a few diatribes about the Labor government, but she was willing to create an intricate mystery since that’s what the customers want.

Somewhere along the way to its denouement “The Private Patient” loses both track of and interest in its title character. Rhoda Gradwyn’s past is of great interest to some of the book’s characters but not to the reader.

On November the 21st, the day of her forty-seventh birthday, and three weeks and two days before she was murdered, Rhoda Gradwyn went to Harley Street to keep a first appointment with her plastic surgeon, and there is a consulting room designed, so it appeared, to inspire confidence and allay apprehension, made the decision that would lead inexorably to her death.

There was a moment in which, not touching the scar, he scrutinised it in silence. Then he switched off the light and sat again behind the desk. His eyes on the file before him, he said, 'And you waited thirty-four years to do something about it. Why now, Miss Gradwyn?'

There was a pause, then she said, 'Because I no longer have need of it.'
She thought, ... these are my people, the upper working class merging into the middle class, that amorphous unregarded group who fought the country's wars, paid their taxes, clung to what remained of their traditions. They had lived to see their simple patriotism derided, their morality despised, their savings devalued. They caused no trouble. ... If they protested that their cities had become alien, their children taught in overcrowded schools where ninety per cent of the children spoke no English, they were lectured about the cardinal sin of racism by those more expensively and comfortably circumstanced.
This new MMC -- Modernising Medical Careers -- makes training schemes far
more rigid. House men have become foundation-year doctors -- and we all know what a mess the government have made there -- senior house officers are out,
registrars are specialist surgical trainees, and God knows how long all this will last before they think of something else, more forms to fill in, more
bureaucracy, more interference with people trying to get on with their jobs.
Perhaps they popped him into a freezer and produced him nice and fresh on the appropriate day. That's the plot of a book by a detective novelist, Cyril Hare. I think it's called Untimely Death, but it may have been published originally under a different name.
Rhoda Gladwyn was interesting about apparently unconscious copying of phrases and ideas and the occasional curious coincidences in literature when a strong idea enters simultaneously into two minds as if its time has come.
