Reading Nicola Upson's books which have Josephine Tey as a character made me realise that I had only read The Daughter of Time by her and sent me to the library in search of more.

This book was her first big hit and features her detective, Inspector Alan Grant. He is an interesting character - very much a lone wolf in his personal life but,except for his occasional 'flair', not a maverick policeman.

The mystery is an interesting one with many twists and turns and the characters are well drawn. Readers should be aware though that the book was written in 1929 when describing a possible suspect as a 'dago' because a stilletto has been used passes without comment!
