Cover Her Face: An Adam Dalgliesh Mystery
The first in the series of scintillating mysteries to feature cunning Scotland Yard detective, Adam Dalgliesh from P.D. James, the bestselling author hailed by People magazine as “the greatest living mystery writer.”
Sally Jupp was a sly and sensuous young woman who used her body and her brains to make her way up the social ladder. Now she lies across her bed with dark bruises from a strangler’s fingers forever marring her lily-white throat. Someone has decided that the wages of sin should be death...and it is up to Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh to find who that someone is.
Cover Her Face is P.D. James’ delightful debut novel, an ingeniously plotted mystery that immediately placed her among the masters of suspense.

This is the first of PD James' books. I've never read anything by her, and since she is touted as the greatest living mystery writer, I thought it best to try one! * * * * * Pretty good story, just a wee bit slower paced than I prefer. Good writing, though. Read full review

I liked how this book was different from many older cozy mysteries in which everything is tied up in a neat little, cheesy bow at the end. However, I was a little disappointed that we barely learned anything about Inspector Dalgliesh at all. Read full review
