We are thrilled to share the news that The Park Time Job by P.D James is our July pick for the HIF Book Of the Month!
Crime fans across the world will be familiar with P.D. James through her novels about Detective Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh or her private detective Cordelia Gray. However, she was also a skilled writer of short stories.
The Part-Time Job is a deliciously dark and exquisitely devious masterpiece from one of the most accomplished authors of crime fiction. An exquisitely composed story of a revenge served very, very cold, The Part-Time Job is classic crime fiction at its most ingenious.
Follow P D James, as she takes us into the mind of a man who has waited decades to enact his patient, ingenious revenge on a school bully: ‘I wasn’t in any particular hurry to kill him. What was important was to make sure that the deed was done without suspicion settling on me…’
A small, dark, treat, ‘The Part-Time Job’ is published in this special edition – for the first time in book form – in celebration of what would have been P.D. James’ 100th birthday.
It’s the perfect book to pick up this month.
