Adopted as a child into a privileged family, Philippa Palfrey fantasizes that she is the daughter of an aristocrat and a parlor maid. The terrifying truth about her parents and a long-ago murder is only the first in a series of shocking betrayals. Philippa quickly learns that those who delve into the secrets of the past must be on guard when long-buried horrors begin to stir. "As a crime novel," wrote the London Times, Innocent Blood is "the peak of the art." "Flawlessly crafted...profoundly, masterfully moving," Cosmopolitan concurred.

[These notes were made in 1988:]. There are unknowns which are revealed in this novel, but it's not really a murder mystery. Rather, it's a psychological novel: an examination of the mental makeup of a young woman, through her reaction to a highly unusual set of circumstances. Philippa, who has be...
