Plot synopsis

Adam Dalgliesh, recovering from a serious illness, is tired of death, and goes to the Toynton Grange care home to see an old friend But his friend has recently died—apparently of natural causes—and there has been another death in the community, an apparent suicide Dalgliesh begins to wonder if everything is really just as it seems, and his detective instincts begin to drive him, almost against his will Two more deaths occur, one a suicide that many people feel is unlikely, the other an unexpected death that requires the coroner to become involved It is only in the final chapters that Adam Dalgleish figures out the dark secret behind the supposedly innocent care home


In a 1975 book review, Newgate Callandar of The New York Times wrote "James is an exceedingly good writer, and her detective, Adam Dalgliesh, is one of the more unusual ones in action today Nevertheless, 'The Black Tower' is so slow-moving that it will try the patience of most readers — and that has to be the besetting sin of a crime novel"
