A Gold Dagger Award-winner offers a shapely and intelligent (Chicago Tribune) new mystery.

A smart, "not too scary," beautiful murder mystery to grow with

Peter Dickinson's Play Dead is a beautiful book. It is not meant to be funny or frightening, but to draw our attention to life: children, music, relationships, love. In her attempts to understand a murder, Poppy Tasker confronts the choices that have led her to become small-of-spirit. As she comes to understand the forces that led to the murder (as well as the unintended consequences of wrong conclusions about them), she learns what is important to her and becomes "She-who-knows-what-she-wants."
