The first P. D. James mystery I've read, and I think I'll be reading more. The book was really well written, and the mystery was well-played. An enjoyable book to read over the weekend!

Katharine Holden I think this is the best Adam Dalgliesh mystery. The next also is good. Eventually, the series, like many mystery series, deteriorates. The books get really long and bloated. I remember treating myself to one for Christmas one year, excited to find James had finally written another AD mystery, only to find that characters stood around and talked about AD. But he rarely showed up. It was pretty obvious James had created this multi-layered, unusual character (for the era), and then wrote him into the ground. Still, Cover Her Face is a fantastic read.
