An Unsuitable Job For A Woman by P.D. James
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A young detective on her first solo case--her partner, mentor, and teacher recently deceased by his own hand--proves herself scrappy and savvy enough to discover the truth behind another suicide. The book takes an interesting turn when the truth-hungry detective then hides the truth and covers up a murder. And the reader is rooting for her the whole time. Here is moral relativism at its best, but it's not altogether surprising in a story that features practically every character questioning love but not their bodily "needs" for sex.
