A witty and sophisticated mystery featuring bestselling author Josephine Tey's popular Inspector Alan Grant, a beloved character created by a woman considered to be one of the greatest mystery writers of all time. Literary sherry parties were not Alan Grant's cup of tea. But when the Scotland Yard Inspector arrived to pick up actress Marta Hallard for dinner, he was struck by the handsome young American photographer, Leslie Searle. Author Lavinia Fitch was sure her guest "must have been something very wicked in ancient Greece," and the art colony at Salcott St. Mary would have agreed. Yet Grant heard nothing more of Searle until the news of his disappearance. Had Searle drowned by accident or could he have been murdered by one of his young women admirers? Was it a possible case of suicide or had the photographer simply vanished for reasons of his own?

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.
