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.

    " I love PD James books - have read 'em all and loved 'em all. I wanted to listen to all of them but won't after listening to this first one. The reader's lilting, annoying voice and read turn a great mystery into a banal snoozefest. She makes little or no attempt to act, speaks in the same silly tone and accent for all the characters and deminishes the material one hundred percent. Unfortunately she is the reader for all James' books on audio store.com so I will have to look elsewhere for the rest. So disappointing. "

    " I had read this before, but didn't realize till half-way through. It's well-written, a first-rate "locked room" murder myster, but "veddy British." I like her work and will read more of her mysteries. "

    " Somehow, even though this book came out decades ago, I never read it until now. I've read other books by James, and enjoyed them. So when I saw this on the library shelves, I knew I'd better grab it. Here Dagliesh is called in to the murder of a young woman, Sally Jupp. Jupp was working as a maid in the house where she was killed. She had been recommended by the local home for unmarried mothers. She had a small child and was well-educated, but her attitude was now always one of submission. She like to challenge other people's feelings toward her. Her death appears to be by strangulation, but her cocoa had also been tampered with. As Dagliesh digs through all Jupp's personal entanglements, he finds the truth of her situation and how her actions led to her demise. A great read. "

    " Fun to read about Adam Dalgleish in his first appearance, just a few years after the end of WWII. Over the 50 years he's been appearing in these books, he's only aged about 10 years. "
