Another fantastic book by Josephine Tey (Miss Elizabeth Mackintosh's nom de plume). Miss Tey wonderfully crafted story and prose will grip you from the very beginning. Highly recommend.

This police procedurak is a good read frin the first golden age of English mystery writers. The plot moves briskly and shuttles between many points of view as the story moves along. Ms. Tey has a way with words. It was a great read and had me to the end.
