Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First UK edition, first print hardback of DEVICES AND DESIRES by P D James and published by Faber and Faber Ltd, London, in 1989. Signed on the title page by author P. D. James (see picture below).

The book is in very good condition (black boards with white lettering on spine which has slight creasing to the edges) with slight wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (only slight creasing to the edges). There is a previous owner gift inscription it the corner of the front board under the jacket flap. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears. There is some tanning to the pages.

Commander Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard has just published a new book of poems and has taken a brief respite from publicity on remote Larksoken headland on the Norfolk coast, in a converted windmill left him by his aunt. But he cannot so easily escape murder.

A psychopathic strangler of young women is at large in Norfolk, and getting nearer to Larksoken with every killing.

Nor can Dalgliesh isolate himself from the affairs of the other headlanders; Alex Mair, director of the nuclear power station, and his intimidating sister; Neil Pascoe, who campaigns passionately against nuclear energy from his caravan above the beach, and has made a bitter enemy of Hilary Robarts, the station's acting administrative officer; Ryan Blaney, a widower with four young children, who has an even stronger reason to hate her; and Miles Lessingham, operations superintendent at the power station, who blames her for the suicide of his friend. And when murder reaches the headland one moonlit night Dalgliesh finds himself involved in a particularly horrible crime - and in the tangled emotions and motives of the suspects.

Devices and Desires is a detective story which is both an engrossing mystery and a powerful and remarkable work of contemporary fiction.

408 pages.
