Summary
A holiday gift for all P. D. James fans to stand alongside her bestselling The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories : six previously uncollected stories from the beloved "Queen of Crime"--swift, cunning murder mysteries from throughout her extraordinary career.

Put your feet up and enjoy a good read! Longtime P. D. James fans will devour these short tales of criminality and deception, each one a pleasure, evocative and engrossing. Including several stories originally published in magazines, this enchanting arrangement of memorable whodunits treats the reader to atmospheric storytelling, mysteries to be solved, and enjoyable puzzles that will keep you guessing. With wit and warmth, P. D. James pays tribute to her English crime-writing forebears, delighting in the dark secrets that lurk beneath the surface of quintessentially English settings.

Sleep No More is a beautifully produced, rare gift book, and an exciting addition to the P. D. James library, offering her devoted readers a glimpse of earlier work never before collected between two covers, and--for those who come newly to it--a delightful place to begin.

Booklist Review
Here's a treat for fans of the late P. D. James' crime fiction: a collection of six short stories, polished gems that spotlight her skills at plotting, building realistic characters, and conveying the subtlest hints of subtext through dialogue. Here are stories about a man who remembers becoming complicit in a killing 60 years earlier; another man who plots the murder of his ex-wife's new husband, with shocking consequences; a crime-fiction writer who played a role in the murder of his uncle; a girl who learns the truth about the deaths of her father and grandmother; a man who apparently tried to murder his wife; and a man who confesses, perhaps only in jest, to killing his own brother. Every one of these stories is first-rate, and every one of them is vintage James. A must-read for fans of one of the most influential crime-fiction authors of the twentieth century.--Pitt, David Copyright 2017 Booklist
