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' electric debut novel, an ingeniously plotted mystery that immediately placed her among the masters of suspense.More

I *think* I liked this book but can't be sure because the narration was too distracting. Characters were shrill, whiny, almost hysterical in places where they should have been stoic. Dalgleish was performed as if he were there to soothe us to sleep.
I will try other P.D. James books, but not narrated by Penelope Dellaporta. I think I'll stick to old fashioned reading for the next one.
A Bit slow
I understand that this is the debut of Inspector Dalgleish. The plot was a bit slow, and the narrator even more so. I found listening at 1 1/2 speed to be about right. the audio sounded like it had been recorded over a phone, and there was a slight ground loop hum in the background. Overall, I wish I had read this book rather than listened to it. I should have listened more closely to sample. Even so, I plan on reading or listening to more P D James.
I would recommend the book, not the recording.
Katherine Kellgren or Donada Peters
I believe it has several.
