The Skull Beneath the Skin by P. D. James

Wednesday, 4 April 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Fiction: Mystery. Paperback from Warner Books. Published in 1982. 416 pages. From PaperBackSwap.com.

This is one of two P. D. James mysteries featuring Cordelia Gray as the detective, the other being An Unsuitable Job for a Woman. I enjoyed both of the Cordelia Gray books. Since there are only two I’m assuming that P. D. James chose to focus on Commander Adam Dalgliesh instead of Gray. The two Gray mysteries are worth reading though.
Publisher’s summary:
Actress Clarissa Lisle was famous for her ravishing beauty — and her unscrupulous manipulations. Now on the death-shrouded island of Courcy, her schemes win her a starring role in a nightmare in which she can trust no one — not her deceived husband; her dangerously insecure stepson; her ominously genial host; her dependent, desperate cousin; or her cruelly amusing ex-lover.

Soon detective Cordelia Gray will find that nothing is as it seems on Courcy — especially after the curtain goes down. Here she must delve into ancient secrets and guilt-stained pasts — and risk her life to stop a brilliantly cunning murderer who has set the stage for death….
