    Adam Dalgliesh, newly promoted to the rank of commander, is facing a crisis in his career. Dissatisfied with his work, restless and vulnerable, he thinks of resigning from the Force. However, an invitation to visit an old family friend in Dorset appeals to Dalgliesh. But when he arrives at Toynton Grange, a private home for the disabled, he discovers that his host has died suddenly.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The sound quality of the narration is very uneven.[ Is it a very old audio book?] There is a variation from chapter to chapter, sometimes quite marked, and there is often soft ambient noise behind the narration. It's never very clear, but sometimes it's worse than others.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Jayston’s performance?

    For me, his pronunciations [eg of 'Michael Baddeley'] were overly pedantic and interfered with my ability to concentrate on the story rather than on the reading.


    Could you see The Black Tower being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, I think it has been done already.


    Any additional comments?

    The least enjoyable of the P D James stories I have listened to because of the poor technical quality [but still worth hearing].
