As the adventure unfolds, travelling from London to Panama before reaching the depths of the Sahara desert, the pair will need all their killing skills to survive.
A Taste for Death is a mystery set in the Finger Lakes Wine region of Upstate New York. The novel has complex characters with troubled lives. Investigator Deville is a recovering alcoholic who suffers from amnesia. While working on the case, he unravels mysteries of his own past, while trying to repair his current life. Wine critic and writer Gerard Bellamont's welcome to the Finger Lakes region was far from friendly. Some would even say his murder was of no surprise. The wine owners did not take the critic's words lightly and his days had been numbered. In addition to writing reviews, there had been more than one lead connecting the victim to the suspects.
The Peverell Press, a two-hundred-year-old publishing firm housed in a dramatic mock-Venetian palace on the Thames, is certainly ripe for change. But the proposals of its ruthlessly ambitious new managing director, Gerard Etienne, have made him dangerous enemies - a discarded mistress, a neglected and humiliated author, and rebellious colleagues and staff. When Gerard's body is discovered bizarrely desecrated, there is no shortage of suspects and Adam Dalgliesh and his team are confronted with a puzzle of extraordinary complexity and a murderer who is prepared to strike again. P.D. James, the bestselling author of Death Comes to Pemberley, Children of Men and Death in Holy Orders, once again explores the mysterious, strong and intense emotions responsible for the unique crime of murder, with authority and sensitivity. Original Sin is set in the literary world of London and possesses all of the qualities which distinguish P.D. James as a novelist. P.D. James has been influential as a crime writer for many years and her writing is often compared to the work of authors such as Val Mcdermid, Ian Rankin and Peter Robinson.
In the following thesis, the characters in P.D. Jamesʼs crime novel A Taste for Death are analysed on the basis of three narratological approaches. Firstly, Greimasʼ actant model is used to explain the roles of the main characters in the narrative, and to shortly reveal the plot. An analysis of each of the main characters that are important for the thesis statement follows, based on the accumulated evidence of the character traits in the novel. Thirdly, the character-trait inventory in the table form is used for further analysis. In the course of my analysis, I have hopefully succeeded in proving three assumptions about the characters in A Taste for Death. To begin with, not all the characters in detective novels are flat with only one main character trait, which I have exemplified on the basis of the analysis of the characters in A Taste for Death. Secondly, the suspects in A Taste for Death are mostly unlikeable characters with negative traits, whereas the characters that are part of the police force have mostly positive, but also some negativetraits. Therefore the detectives have more depth than the suspect characters. Not only the main but also the minor characters play an important part in the course of the novel. Whereas one would expect the minor charactersto be flat, it is obvious that most of them are fully rounded characters. Only the most peripheral characters can be described as flat, and those serve as plot-enabling devices. In conclusion, I hope to have contributed to the notion that some crime novels need not be described as trivial literature, using A Taste for Death as a good example. Its qualities go far beyond the exciting riddle of finding the murderer. The novel merges carefully described settings with richly depicted characters which insightfully portray the mysteries of the human psyche.
