Publisher's Summary

Summer, 1936: Josephine Tey joins her friends in the resort village of Portmeirion to celebrate her 40th birthday. Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville, are there to sign a deal to film Josephine's novel, A Shilling for Candles, and Alfred Hitchcock has one or two tricks up his sleeve to keep the holiday party entertained-and expose their deepest fears. But things get out of hand when one of Hollywood's leading actresses is brutally slashed to death in a cemetery near the village. The following day, fear and suspicion take over in a setting where nothing-and no one-is quite what it seems.


What the Critics Say

"Excellent. . . . Upson upsets [listeners'] expectations with a surprise that keeps the suspense high to the satisfying conclusion." (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review)

You'll need a high tolerance for gruesomeness and violence towards women to get through this. Not sure why the narrator gave Indian accents to the Welsh characters.

I enjoyed the first 2 books but this one left an awful lot to be desired. Plot is somewhat of a buffet with OK portions but really did not jell as a whole. I already bought the next 2 books so here's hoping they are better than this one.
