An Unsuitable Job for a Woman: PD James

Like a reviewer said, this is not just a whodunnit but a whydunnit too. Moreover, the best part comes after the mystery is resolved. The detective is a 22-year-old woman, a rookie private eye. Commander Dalgleish, the protagonist in most PD James mysteries, also pops up from time to time.

PD James is a British crime writer, but her stories are more like novels (according to Wikipedia). I second that: this book has some excellent descriptions of Cambridge and UK in the 70s.
