I loved the idea of a murder starring Josephine Tey as a character; so many meta layers, but the book itself was confusing and suffered from a plethora of POVs. Many of the sudden shifts could've been eliminated. The large cast left me struggling to follow what was going on and the motivation behind the deaths seemed implausible. The villain was just too awful to be credible.

I did enjoy the m/m, f/f element which was interesting to see in a book like this and I liked the depiction of London, but the book needed tighter editing, I think.
