I love Josephine Tey, but I have mixed feelings about this book. There are some excellent moments, especially some that are so funny I actually laughed out loud. But then, Inspector Grant goes too often into an "internal dialogue"; and it gets tiresome after the second page of these kinds of exchanges. I actually skipped one of them altogether. Also, the "detecting" only really start half way through the book. Very well written, but I read other much better books by her, my favorite being The Franchise Affair. Still (and considering modern authors!) a very good read.

Another Josephine Tey mystery that is unusual and completely captivating, she mesmerizes you, as well as being sharply observant about humanity....
