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.

Cover Her Face is P. D. James’s electric debut novel, an ingeniously plotted mystery that immediately placed her among the masters of suspense.

Listener Opinions

    " It's a wonderful book by master of crime fiction P D James (my favourite mystery writer) so worth a listen at any rate (the book itself gets the two star rating- although if it were just the book I would give it a five out of five). The audiobook made the material boring. All the characters and descriptions are read with the same voice so there is no texture to the read, no acting, and no character (all of which PD James delivers in spades in all her books). The reader's lilting voice can be a bit irritating too. I had wanted to listen to the whole James collection but since they all appear to be from the same reader and production I do not think I will. I'll have to splurge on some BBC/better versions instead. So far not impressed with this site! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy P | 2/28/2011

    " A nice, straightforward murder mystery, a good start in my mission to read all the James novels in order. "

    " Finished last night. I found the writing to be very good. The plot left me questioning until the very end, but wasn't so far off that it didn't make sense. Good all around murder mystery. "

    " Why do I always forget how much I like PD James? I'm adding everything I haven't yet read to my To Read shelf. "

    " I waited 40 years to read PD James. I wont make the same mistake again. "

    " I've read all P D James books. This first Inspector Dalgliesh is still one of my favorites. "

    " Actually, I read the Indonesian translation of this, for language practice. It was quite motivating, because I wanted to find out whodunnit, and I learned a lot of new vocabulary! "
