Editorial: P.D. James You Will Be Missed

I was doing minor things on the web last night and was sad to learn of the passing of P.D. James she passed away on Thursday.  While we were celebrating Thanksgiving she was passing on to her next life.  She is a great writer dubbed the Queen of Crime a fitting title.  So sad.  I hope everyone will take the time to check out her books.

Biography of her website:

P. D. James is the author of twenty books, most of which have been filmed and broadcast on television in the United States and other countries. She spent thirty years in various departments of the British Civil Service, including the Police and Criminal Law Department of Great Britain's Home Office. She has served as a magistrate and as a governor of the BBC. In 2000 she celebrated her eightieth birthday and published her autobiography, Time to Be in Earnest. The recipient of many prizes and honors, she was created Baroness James of Holland Park in 1991. She lives in London and Oxford.

It's always sad when learning of writers that have passed on and I think this one is sad as well.  While their books live on we won't experience anymore books by her.  I think that makes it bittersweet.  Have any of you read her books?  If so which would you recommend?  Feel free to join in the discussion in the comments.
