Innocent House is a mock-Venetian palace occupied by Britain's oldest book publisher, Peverell Press. After a spate of malicious pranks, the ruthless managing director, Gerard Etienne, is found dead, the office mascot, a stuffed snake, jammed in his mouth. Who wanted Etienne dead? Just about everyone on staff -- and several authors, too.
Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team are confronted with a puzzle of extraordinary ingenuity as they begin to probe the dark, private tragedies of Etienne's mistress and colleagues. But the mystery at Innocent House may prove too deep, too old, and too evil to stop at just one death.... From the Paperback edition.

One of my favorite Adam Dalgliesh mysteries. Mysteries, with moral dilemmas.

Publishing house Peverall Press is bleeding money and chairman who has just taken over wants to sell family home in which it has offices. There are partners against this and others who hate this chairman, Gerard Etienne, for their own reasons. Also, before his murder, there was a suicide in the office, and a few sabotage incidents. Book 1 gives us background on all characters (suspects) and ends with murder. Book 2 is beginning police procedural.
