Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Sally Jupp was a sly and sensuous young woman who used her body and her brains to make her way up the social ladder. Now she lies across her bed with dark bruises from a strangler's fingers forever marring her lily-white throat.

Someone has decided that the wages of sin should be death...And it is up to Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh to find out who that someone is.

Review Quote*"The finest English crime novelist of her generation." -- The Globe and Mail

"The reigning mistress of murder...Her vivid, compelling whodunits have made James one of the world's leading crime writers and a worthy successor to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie." -- Time
