Original Sin (an Adam Dalgliesh novel)
By PD James
When a bizarre murder is committed at an esteemed publishing house, Commander Adam Dalgliesh must separate the victim’s personal enemies from disgruntled coworkers to catch the killer. “Complex and compelling… James is writing in full mastery of her craft” (The New York Times Book Review).
Original Sin is a 1994 detective novel in the Adam Dalgliesh series by P. D. James. It is set in London, mainly in Wapping in the Borough of Tower Hamlets, and centers on the city’s oldest publishing house, Peverell Press, headquartered in a mock-Venetian palace on the River Thames.
The murder of Peverell Press’s managing director, ambitious Gerard Etienne, seems to be the horrible end of a series of malicious pranks in the company headquarters. When Adam Dalgliesh is called to the scene to solve the murder, he soon finds out that the killer does not intend to stop with Etienne.
