O du schreckliche...

Description: Das Fest der Liebe, die Heilige Nacht? Weihnachten kann auch ganz anders sein: eine verbrecherische, sogar mörderische Angelegenheit. Schlimm für diejenigen, die es erwischt, und auch für jene, die, anstatt zu Hause zu feiern, in der Kälte ermitteln müssen. Aber gut für alle Leserinnen und Leser, die sich auf spannende und abwechslungsreiche Weihnachtsfälle gefasst machen können.

Meurtres en blouse blanche [Shroud for a Nightingale]

Description: Le décor : l’hôpital John Carpendar, imposant établissement d’époque victorienne abritant plusieurs services, dont une école d’infirmières. La première victime : une des élèves, tuée d’une manière particulièrement atroce. Les suspects : les infirmières et, surtout, la directrice, la formidable Mary Taylor, ses trois « secondes », mais aussi le grand patron, le docteur Courtney-Briggs, dont on découvre bientôt qu’il a eu une liaison avec l’une des victimes. L’enquêteur : le commissaire Dalgliesh, bien sûr, qui, face à des femmes aguerries à la souffrance, dures à la tâche, habituées au secret professionnel et farouchement féministes, aura fort à faire pour dénouer une intrigue dont les ramifications plongent loin dans le passé. Un P.D.James grand cru, qui valut à son auteur deux distinctions prestigieuses : la Dague d’or de l’Association des Ecrivains policiers britanniques et l’Edgar américain.

The Private Patient: An Adam Dalgliesh Mystery

Description: Cheverell Manor is a lovely old house in deepest Dorset, now a private clinic belonging to the famous plastic surgeon George Chandler-Powell. When investigative journalist Rhoda Gradwyn arrived there one late autumn afternoon, scheduled to have a disfiguring and long-standing facial scar removed, she had every expectation of a successful operation and a pleasant week recuperating. Two days later she was dead, the victim of murder. To Commander Adam Dalgliesh, who with his team is called in to investigate the case, the mystery at first seems absolute. Few things about it make sense. Yet as the detectives begin probing the lives and backgrounds of those connected with the dead woman the surgeon, members of the manor staff, close acquaintances suspects multiply all too rapidly. New confusions arise, including strange historical overtones of madness and a lynching 350 years in the past. Then there is a second murder, and Dalgliesh finds himself confronted by issues even more challenging than innocence or guilt.
