Hired to protect a beautiful but neurotic actress, Cordelia Gray soon becomes embroiled in a case as dangerous to her own life as it is mysterious. Clarissa Lisle hopes to make a spectacular come back in a production of The Duchess of Malfi, to be played in Ambrose Gorringe's sinister castle at Courcy Island. Cordelia is there to ensure her safety following the appearance of a number of poison-pen letters. But it soon becomes clear that all are in danger. Trapped within the walls of the Gothic Castle, the treacherous past of the island re-emerges, and everyone seems to have a motive for sending Clarissa 'down, down the hell'. Marking the return of Cordelia Gray, The Skull Beneath the Skin is a complex mystery that more than lives up to its predecessor, An Unsuitable Job for a Woman.

From the Back Cover:

"The reason it takes me so long to write is because it takes a long time for the characters to reveal themselves to me. My ambition as a writer is to make even the minor characters come alive." --P. D. James

"James pulls out all the stops ... an overlay of lust; midnight apparitions; hairbreadth escapes." --New York Magazine

"A masterly version of the clue-and-alibi game ... five star." --The Guardian


 


From the Inside Flap:
Fading star Clarissa Lisle plans a spectacular comeback, to be staged in a gothic castle. But poison-pen letters bearing death threats couched in Shakespearian quotations prompt Clarissa's husband to call in the young private detective Cordelia Gray to investigate.
