I read this years ago and didn't much care for it, loaned it out and never got it back. I toyed with getting a replacement copy for years because now it was now the only Josephine Tey that I didn't have. I finally did, and I re-read it, and I now like it very much.
I can very highly recommend any of Josephine Tey's mysteries. They are all very well-written and well-plotted with well-developed characters. I'm glad that I finally replaced it and read it again.

Not my favourite Josephine Tey book, but still I would read it again (and again!). In fact this must be at least the third or fourth time. Inspector Grant is the epitome of intelligent policing, and always beautifully well-mannered. Although the books are firmly fixed in the early to middle twentieth century, the insights into character are as vivid and true today as then. So glad I have my own copy!

Subtle and sophisticated
Ms. Tey had such warmth and style - if only she lived to grow with this gift. There is true plot here, vivid characterization - I feel a closeness with her after each of her novels.
