    What did you love best about A Taste for Death?

    The personal connection between Commander Dagleish and Sir Paul (victim) adds an interesting psychological layer to this case. Though the two men met on only a few occasions, they had an almost brotherly connection, which causes Dagleish to consider recusing himself from the case. Among their shared interests are poetry, art, and architecture, all of which feature prominently in the book. James' descriptions of the interiors of English houses and cathedrals would make A Taste for Death entertaining reading, even if there were no murders to solve. But there are - and the body count rises as the plot moves forward! Beautifully read by Michael Jayston.
