When Commander Dalgliesh is persuaded by an old friend to visu the Dupayne, a small private museum on the edge of Hampstead Heath, he can have no idea that hc will return to it one week later under vert' different circumstances. One of the family trustees has been horribly murdered and Dalgliesh and his team are called in to investigate a death which from the first is fraught with complications. Even before the murder, the museum was in tumult. A new leasc was due to be signed and two of the trustees were determined to keep the museum open, the third passionately determined on its closure. The museum is dedicated to the years 1919-1939 and one of the galleries, the Murder Room, displays exhibits from the mont notorious cases of those inter-war years. And now a modem killer is at work, the crimes uncannily echoing the cases on display. All the small group of peuple, the trustees, staff and volunteers, who work in the Dupayne, have the means and the opportunity for murder. One of them has the ruthlessness to kill and kill again. The investigation is complicated for Dalgliesh by his love for Emma Lavenham, but their relationship, at a sensitive stage for them both, is continuant frustrated by the demands of his job. As stop by step he moves cloner to the murderer, is the investigation taking him further away from commitment to the woman he loves ? PD James once again demonstrates the truth of Orwell's saying that murder, the unique crime, should arise only from strong emotions. No one handles them with more authority and sensitivity. This new novel has all the qualities which readers of PD James have corne to value : psychological and emotional richness of characterisation, a keen sense of place and a credible and exciting mystery. The Murder Room is a worthy successor to the acclaimed Death in Holy Orders.
