A Classic British Mystery

Any additional comments?

I have read many of James' Adam Dalgliesh mysteries, but this one does not include him and somehow along the line I missed reading it. Full of twists and turns, it kept me guessing until the end. Phillipa Palfrey is an adopted child who is determined to find her roots, but gets more than she bargains for in a myriad of ways. It's a classic.

Not Her Best

Would you try another book from P. D. James and/or Penelope Dellaporta?

I love P.D. James! I would try another book by her. However this book was implausible at times. In the end I really didn't enjoy it that much.

Would you recommend Innocent Blood to your friends? Why or why not?

NO, I would not recommend it to my friends. It was too long and not plausible.

Which scene was your favorite?

The father and daughter interaction when it came time to leave.

Was Innocent Blood worth the listening time?
