Cover Her Face (Adam Dalgliesh Series #1) by P. D. James


Headstrong and beautiful, the young housemaid Sally Jupp is put rudely in her place, strangled in her bed behind a bolted door. Coolly brilliant policeman Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard must find her killer among a houseful of suspects, most of whom had very good reason to wish her ill.

The great thing about PD Jame's mysteries is that it is possible for the reader to formulate a conclusion - it isn't some obscure solution that only the detective present could formulate - nor is it served on a silver platter.

The same is true for this elaborate story...

Wonderful detective writing. There is simply no one currently writing who can compare with P. D. James. I encourage anyone who tries even one of her books to read them all...each is as good as the next.

Very gripping story; many interesting characters; good plot. Somewhat predictable but many surprises along the way.
