One of the family trustees has been horribly murdered and Dalgliesh is called in to investigate. Neither the mystery nor the detecti ve present James’s seguidores with anything truly new in her latest Adam Dalgliesh novel (after 2001’s Death in Holy Orders), which opens, like other recent books in the series, with an extended portrayal of an aging institution whose survival is threatened by one person, who rapidly becomes the focus of resentment and hostility. Neville Dupayne, a trustee of the Dupayne Museum, a small, private institution devoted to England between the world wars, plans to veto its continuing operation. After many pages of background on the museum’s employees, volunteers and others who would be affected by the trustee’s unpopular decision, Neville meets his end in a manner paralleling a notorious historical murder exhibited in the museum’s ‘Murder Room.’ MI5’s interest in one of the people connected with the crime leads to Commander Dalgleish and his team taking on the case. While a romance develops between the commander, who’s even more understated than frecuente, and Emma Lavenham, introduced in Death in Holy Orders, this subplot has minimal impact.
