The 14 books published to date in James's beloved series feature Adam Dalgliesh of the London Metropolitan Police Department. Dalgliesh is fiercely intelligent, and while a bit more haunted and reserved than Gamache (he has lost his wife and son), the two detectives are both reflective and independent thinkers. Like Penny, James reinterprets classic mystery motifs in her procedurals and includes a focus on the wider world than just the puzzle. The two authors also stress the importance of language, deftly created settings, cultural frames, and intricate plots. As the books progress readers learn more about Dalgliesh, so it makes sense to start at the beginning of the series with this entry about a troublesome maid who, when she dares dream above her station, gets a permanent comeuppance. Readers willing to sample further into the series might experience more of the pleasures of James by starting with book six or seven by which time James is writing at the height of her powers. - Neal Wyatt, "RA Crossroads," Booksmack! 11/3/11 (c) Copyright 2011.
