9780141022574: Innocent House (Pocket Penguins 70's)

Every book tells a story! And the 70 titles in the "Pocket Penguins" series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935, and that continues to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin. "Innocent House" PD James has been writing extremely popular, highly praised crime novels for more than forty years, and Penguin is proud to publish them in paperback. Her most famous and enduring creation is the poet-detective Adam Dalgliesh, and in "Innocent House" - taken from "Original Sin" - he is confronted with a suspicious death and a puzzle at a respected publishing house.

Review:

"Immensely readable, bright...P.D. James is capable of handling her themes with astonishing clarity: not to simplify things for us, but to give us the crisp honesty of her novelistic perceptions."--"The New York Times Book Review ""Subtle, rich, allusive, and positively Shakespearean."--"The New York Times ""A superbly crafted psychological story of a search for identity, revenge and redemption."--"Toronto Star ""As suspenseful and tautly written as any of her detective stories -- the psychological twists and turns will tantalize the reader as cunningly as a well-paced clue."--"The New York Times ""P.D. James steps into territory occupied by Truman Capote, Shelby Foote, Carson McCullers, even Henry James."--"The New Republic ""A superior thriller--tingling with suspense, difficult to put down."--"Newsday ""A transfixing psychological thriller filled with searing suspense, a multi-twist plot and a remorseless eye for our sometimes monstrous needs and drives -- It packs a powerful wallop."--"Mademoiselle"
