    A Taste for Death by P. D. James Book Resume: Two men lie in a welter of blood in the vestry of St Matthew's Church, Paddington, their throats brutally slashed.

    A Taste of Death is equally well written and even more complex and interesting, as it is richer in characters. The book would make a good dramatisation, there is the sense that it is the script of a theatrical play, because many of the characters are stereotypical cliches, the inevitable product of their class and circumstance.
