Once it was introduced, the author hastily created back stories to explain how each of the two characters to be disposed of by the organization had become involved with it in the first place. Neither the back stories nor the existence of the organization were credible. To me, that particular plot twist caused a huge break in the willing suspension of disbelief that one must have in order to enjoy a novel.
I immediately thought to myself, "oh this is just ridiculous. After that, I became too aware of the author, and therefore no longer invested in the characters, in who really was the murderer, or in what happened to everyone after the dust settled. This novel adds nothing to the ongoing story of Adam Dalgliesh, other than that his elderly aunt has passed away. So, if you're reading the books in order, I'd recommend that you skip this one.
April 29, - Published on Amazon. The volatile waves of an oceanside village, a serial killer, and a nuclear power station wash over Adam Dalgleish as he considers his own grief and what to do with the property of his last living relative. It's one of the gifts of reading James that you met dangerous ideas as well as deceptive characters in her novels.

February 19, - Published on Amazon. Although this one starts a little slowly, it's vintage PD James. The characters are complex, the setting is marvelous, and there's plenty of evil to go around.
