Lately the mystery genre has been over whelmed with themed mysteries. Josephine Tey wrote several mysteries so it makes more sense to me that she would be the main character in this authors themed mysteries. Set in Cornwall in 1935 after The Great War Josephine is visiting friends and hoping to become inspired to write a new novel. A death of a friend has also brought her friend Archie Penrose, Detective Inspector, to Cornwall. It seems that everyone has secrets which the reader has to wait to find the real reason for the death. The one person who knows most of the answers is Loveday the younger sister of the victim.
