I would recommend this book to anyone who likes good British mystery novels. I think the characters are excellently well developed and the story is great. I was sad when it ended, but love how P.D. James gives the story epilogue to tie everything together.
I have greatly enjoyed the works of P. D. James, as read by Charles Keating. In Death in Holy Orders, James truly crafts the scenes and interactions of the characters so that you experience the tale almost as though you are there. Keating's reading, with all of the subtle nuances, accents and inflections were excellent. There are numerous other James titles in audio format. I hope Audible picks them up as well.
The plot was twisted so that just about every character was a possible bad guy at one point or another through the story. I think it could have been a little more wild to the finish. Also, it would seem that not everyone got what they deserved, and that some really interesting revelations could have been brought forth earlier in the book to allow them to better influence the story.
Worth listening too, but not as good as it should have been. This is one where the reader desperately needed a windscreen for the recording. It was awful to listen too over headphones.
