Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mystery writing at its very finest.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Tey builds on character and circumstances to create an enthralling cat-and-mouse hunt.” Daily Mail (London)
“Inspector Alan Grant, my favorite detective of all time, painstakingly, fascinatingly identifies the body then chases suspects up to the Highlands of Scotland and all around the town.” Daily Express (London)
“Tey’s first full-length detective novel, The Man In The Queue, is most impressive, memorably describing the bleakness of an investigation in which the police know almost nothing, not even the identity of the victim.” Crime Reads
“A lighthearted period mystery centered in the London theater district. Thorne’s portrayal of bumbling police officers and theater divas breathes fresh life into this timeless whodunit.” Booklist

Author Bio: Josephine Tey

Author Bio: Josephine Tey

Josephine Tey (1896–1952) was a pseudonym used by Elizabeth Mackintosh, a Scottish author best known for her mystery novels. She began her literary career when she was forced to give up teaching to care for her invalid father. Even after her death, she is still considered one of the greatest mystery writers of all time. She began to write full-time after the successful publication of her first novel, The Man in the Queue, which introduced Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard. In 1937 she returned to crime writing with A Shilling for Candles, but it wasn’t until after the Second World War that the majority of her crime novels were published. When she died in 1952, she left her entire estate to the National Trust.
