** The Black Tower by P.D. James

The bodies pile up in The Black Tower, as Adam Dalgliesh struggles to find a motive, or a culprit in a home for the disabled.  The setting is sinister and claustrophobic, and the story is not at all PC towards the patients. The outcome is tangled and too Deus-Ex-Machina for my taste, but if you like a dark, long tale, this is the book for you.
