it was amazing
bookshelves: english, suspense, 2010

I saw the BBC mini-series in 1990 I guess and was enthralled by the story and the characters and just everything.

Now I finally got to read the book (courtesy of a friend) and was as drawn into the story and loved the characters as much as I loved them 20 years ago.

Everything's just perfectly balanced: suspense, humour, characterisation, setting, motivations, character development. The first moment you meet most of the protagonists sitting around the table, having lunch, you feel at home with them, like you've known them for years.

I'll definitely going to read more by Josephine Tey.
