I have been an Audible listener for several years and have never left a review. I enjoyed Death in Holy Orders and couldn't wait for more. The Murder Room continues in the same fine tradition in telling a classic English detective story. Commander Adam Dalgliesh's personal struggles are revealed, while he remains the consummate profession. If you want to smell the flowers, the dust, and the blood...If you want to feel the anger, fear, and joy of James's characters, I highly recommend this book.
It has been years since my last Turow read. It didn't take long to remember and appreciate the excellence of this writer and this novel. The character development is so tight and detailed, you find yourself inside the head of the characters. That intimate perspective does not give away the non-stop mystery and suspense as the tale unfolds. I found myself frustrated and thrilled that I could not guess the entire plot and ending. Be prepared to change your priorities once you begin this read. You won't want to stop.
