A mighty totara has fallen: PD James passes away

Sad news here in London today, as the marvellous PD James has passed away, aged 94. The creator of the Adam Dalgliesh series of crime novels, MWA Grand Master, CWA Diamond Dagger Award winner. A true legend and icon of crime writing. I had the pleasure of interviewing her for her 90th birthday. Just an amazing, intelligent, kind, and articulate woman. Generous with her time and comments. A very, very sad day.


  1. Kiwicraig,

    She was my No. 1 favorite mystery writer. I have read all of her fiction at least twice, and I think it's time for a third reading. In her novels, the joy is in the reading, not in figuring out whodunnit.
