About this title


An omnibus volume of P.D.James' work which features "An Unsuitable Job for a Woman", "Death of an Expert Witness" and "Innocent Blood". The author has also written a special preface for this edition in which she reflects upon her work and the significance of the crime genre in which she writes.

From the Back Cover:

Three of the most celebrated Dalgliesh novels, from the queen of crime, P. D. James. 'Outstanding . . . These are books to escape into, delighting in the sense that you are in safe hands, no matter how unsafe the subject.' Observer A Taste for Death Two men lie in a welter of blood in the vestry of St Matthew's Church, Paddington, their throats brutally slashed. One is Sir Paul Berowne, baronet, the other a vagrant. Dalgliesh discovers that the Berowne family's veneer of prosperous gentility conceals ugly and dangerous secrets. 'A cunningly compulsive work . . . Heart-pounding suspense.' Sunday Times Devices and Desires When Dalgliesh visits Larksoken, a remote Norfolk community, to tie up his aunt's estate, he discovers that a serial killer known as the Whistler is terrorising the neighbourhood. But it quickly becomes apparent that there is more than one murderer at work . . . 'Her storytelling is as consummate and fiendish as ever.' Independent on Sunday Original Sin When Gerard Etienne's body is discovered bizarrely desecrated, there is no shortage of suspects. The changes Gerard implemented at Peverell Press have made him dangerous enemies - a discarded mistress, a humiliated author, and rebellious staff. Adam Dalgliesh is confronted with a puzzle of extraordinary complexity and a murderer who is prepared to strike again. 'Classic P. D. James: rich, delicious and satisfying.' Sunday Times
