Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

P.D. James is “the greatest living mystery writer.”–People

Adopted as a child into a privileged family, Philippa Palfrey fantasizes that she is the daughter of an aristocrat and a parlor maid. The terrifying truth about her parents and a long-ago murder is only the first in a series of shocking betrayals. Philippa quickly learns that those who delve into the secrets of the past must be on guard when long-buried horrors begin to stir.

    

“As a crime novel,” wrote the London Times, Innocent Blood is “the peak of the art.” “Flawlessly crafted . . . profoundly, masterfully moving,” Cosmopolitan concurred.

From the Compact Disc edition.
