Cover Her Face is the debut 1962 crime novel of P. D. James. It details the investigations by her poetry-writing detective Adam Dalgliesh into the death of a young, ambitious maid, surrounded by a family which has reasons to want her gone - or dead.

"Cover Her Face" is a story of mystery and suspense, about a beautiful and assertive housemaid who winds up strangled in her bed behind a locked door. Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard must find her killer among a full household of suspects. There were many who had reason to want her dead.

The title is taken from a passage from John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi:

"Cover her face. Mine eyes dazzle; she died young."

The novel was generally very well received by critics. "Her first detective story, immediately pleasing and impressive. The pace is deliberate, the characterization of the members of an English county family very well done, and the central character of Sally Jupp -- a servant girl with imagination and a love of power -- most unusual but compelling. Inspector Dalgliesh is perhaps too quietly competent in his disclosure of Sally's killer -- and, despite the title, the girl isn't a Duchess of Malfi."
