Fast on the heels of her latest bestseller, a new, fiendishly entertaining gathering of previously uncollected murder mysteries, from the late, great author of Death Comes to Pemberley and The Private Patient.
It's not always a question of whodunit. Sometimes there's more mystery in the why or how. And although we usually know the unhealthy fates of both victim and perpetrator, what of those clever few who plan and carry out the perfect crime? Or the ones who aren't brought down even though they're found out? And what about those who do the finding out who witness a murder or who identify the murderer but keep the information to themselves? These are some of the mysteries that we follow through those six stories as we are drawn into the thinking, the memories, the emotional machinations, the rationalizations, the dreams and desires behind murderous cause and effect. And no one gets inside the head of the murderer-or makes it a more thrilling read-than the incomparable P. D. James.
