Would that all writers of mystery used words as well as PD James does in The Lighthouse. James is, for one thing, notable for her skill at keeping her characters fresh and her plots stimulating. In this book, a mysterious death occurs on a secluded, isolated island that is used as a getaway by the rich and powerful. James richly describes the island and the people, and with her words is able to show you so much more about her characters and their motivations than she actually tells. Many years ago, James introduced the concept of literature as mystery, and she can still be counted on to deliver a satisfying novel.
