Another winner for Inspector Grant

by Helen P on Oct 24, 2013

I love Josephine Tey and wish she had lived longer. This book pleases on many levels but especially in her characterisation. It IS old-fashioned, but none the worse for that. And as an insight into the ways things were done in genteel society in the early-mid twentieth century it fits the bill admirably. Inspector Grant always 'gets his man', but the idiosyncratic way in which he does so is always interesting.

Josephine Tey

I recently reread my collection of Josephine Tey and my copy of A Shilling for Candles fell apart, so I needed to replace it. Her books are classics.
