Publisher's Summary

March 1934. Revered mystery writer Josephine Tey is traveling from Scotland to London for the final week of her play Richard of Bordeaux, the surprise hit of the season, with pacifist themes that resonate in a world still haunted by war. But joy turns to horror when her arrival coincides with the murder of a young woman she had befriended on the train ride - and Tey is plunged into a mystery as puzzling as any in her own works. Detective Inspector Archie Penrose is convinced that the killing is connected to the play, and that Tey herself is in danger of becoming a victim of her own success. In the aftermath of a second murder, the writer and the policeman must join together to stop a ruthless killer who will apparently stop at nothing.

Great-catchy story but a bit too left-leaning

Would you try another book from Nicola Upson and/or Davina Porter?


What could Nicola Upson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The initial plot seemed interesting but I felt like the author was trying too hard to advance a gay agenda...great for some folks, but for the tame at heart, I'd look elsewhere. I did not finish the book.

Did Not Like It.

I love Davina Porter as a narrator but the story did not hold my attention. Did not like the GAY focus. I will stick to Patricia Wentworth who NEVER disappoints!
