About the Author:

P.D. James is the author of twenty previous books, most of which have been filmed and broadcast on television in the United States and other countries. She spent thirty years in various departments of the British Civil Service, including the Police and Criminal Law Departments of Great Britain's Home Office. She has served as a magistrate and as a governor of the BBC. In 2000 she celebrated her eightieth birthday and published her autobiography, Time to Be in Earnest. The recipient of many prizes and honors, she was created Baroness James of Holland Park in 1991 and was inducted into the International Crime Writing Hall of Fame in 2008. She lives in London and Oxford.

From AudioFile:

Sally Jupp, unmarried mother and parlor maid, announces that Stephen Maxie, surgeon and heir, has asked her to marry him. That night she is strangled in her bed. When Detective Chief Inspector Adam Dalgleish is called in to investigate, he finds that there is a plethora of motives because Sally had a mischievous ability to annoy and provoke. The play is a mix of narration from Mrs. Maxie, read by Sian Phillips with gentility and grief, and a full-cast drama led by Robin Ellis as Dalgleish. Ellis has one of those superb BBC Radio voices--every word is clear and crisp but with wit and empathy. Members of the large cast play their parts well. They cross class and national boundaries ranging from a working-class lad, a middle-class village merchant, and the upper-class family and friends.
