Opinion

From Library Staff

First in the series featuring Detective Adam Dalgliesh. P.D. James is a wonderfully prolific writer.

First in the series featuring strong, silent -type Detective Adam Dalgliesh, writer of poetry and best detective at Scotland Yard.

When a sly and sensuous young woman who had used her body and her brains to climb the social ladder is murdered by someone who had clearly decided that the wages of sin should be death, it falls to Inspector Adam Dalgliesh to find out who the killer is.

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.
