Cover Her Face

Now she lies across her bed with dark bruises from a stranglers 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 out who that someone is. From the Paperback edition.

#30JuneBooks #J is for my love for P.D.James. I read most of her books after ‘graduating‘ from Agatha Christie a very long time ago. I plan to reread them and so have been slowly collecting her books.

Cathythoughts I‘ve never read PD James. Which one will I start with ? Please & thankyou X 7mo
jenniferw88 @Cathythoughts it depends on which series you want. Adam Galgliesh is the more well-nown and has more books, the first is 7mo

jenniferw88 @Cathythoughts Both Death Comes to Pemberley & Innocent Blood are stand-alones - there may be more but these are the ones I'm aware of as not being part of a series. 7mo
jenniferw88 @Cathythoughts as you may be able to tell, I'm a huge fan. The tagged book got me into her (doesn't help that the cover is gorgeous!) 7mo
erzascarletbookgasm @Cathythoughts I‘m a sucker for reading a series in order, so start with the tagged book for Adam Dalgliesh (Inspector and a poet!) or like @jenniferw88 said, An Unsuitable Job for a Woman for Cordelia Gray series. (edited) 7mo
erzascarletbookgasm @jenniferw88 the other stand alone novel is The Children Of Men 👍 7mo
Cathythoughts Thankyou so much , I have tagged book stacked 👍🏻♥️& Thankyou @jenniferw88 I have loads of info to go on now !! Your 2 star bars 😘😘 7mo

Happy birthday @gradcat ! 🎂🎉📚 and congratulations on your milestone! 👏

1. The tagged book, the first in the series of Detective Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh, set in Essex and London. Love P.D. James!

2. Matcha latte. 1 1/4 tsp matcha powder, 2 tsp maple syrup, 1/4 cup hot water, 1/4 cup skimmed milk. 😋

Thank you! #birthdaygiveaway

gradcat Gosh, you corrected my memory. I love, love, love P. D. James‘ novels, but I was thinking Cover Her Face was Cordelia Gray...thanks for the memory correction! Also, thanks very much for entering! 13mo

1- Definitely. I've been known to seek out particular covers of certains authors. Ellis Peters, Dorothy Sayers to name two.
2- Nope. I have a really nice patio.
3- I prefer to end a chapter but it's not obligatory. I need to read in order. Series, books of my favorite authors. It's like an imperative.
4- Yeah, usually two per print book. One for where I'm at and one for where I want to be at when I stop.
5- Not really.

SilversReviews Now that is a great idea about the two bookmarks....setting a goal with the second one is perfect. Thanks for playing. 2y
CoffeeNBooks I keep several bookmarks in my books, too, for where I'm at and where I want to read to! 2y

The first in the Adam Dagliesh books. Rich family hires an unwed mother who turns the household upside down. Sally announces that the son as asked her to marry him when asked why she is not helping serve dinner. That night she is strangled behind a locked door and her baby in the room with her. No loss of suspects. Dagliesh comes in to investigate. Solid first book in series.

BethFishReads Ooooohhhh I wish I could read these for the first time again. Lucky you. 2y

Just finished my first P.D. James, and I will definitely pick up more. This one was very reminiscent of Agatha Christie: post WWII, manor house, changing society, murder in a seemingly locked room.

#octphotochallenge #sleuth Ahhh..my favourite detective...how can I choose? So many that I love! First one comes to my mind is Sherlock Holmes, which I'm sure will be featured by other Littens. Here are my other favourite sleuths:
Adam Dalgleish,
Perry Mason,
Hercule Poirot,
Armand Gamache,
Endeavour Morse.
💪🏼💙😎

#WCW! P.D. James wrote some of my favorite British crime fiction. Her many accomplishments are a testament to her ability to face and rise above adversity in her personal life. And she did it all as a woman in a man's world. Her personal story is just as impressive as her crime stories!

Thoroughly enjoyed it. I felt while reading it I should be drinking earl grey tea and eating cucumber sandwiches. Some of the characters were so stiff upper lip. It was quite sad how the keeping up of appearances was more important than anything else. Looking forward to reading more P.D James.

Mehso-so

First outing for Adam Dalgleish. Some of the social attitudes are jaw-dropping - hard to believe the extent to which times have changed.
