This review is from: Angel with Two Faces (Kindle Edition)
The best thing about this book was its Cornish setting and the featuring of the Minack Theatre as a centrepiece for the murder drama. Nicola Upson is ever-inventive as she combs thirties history to support her stories of Josephine Tey. This one focusses on Tey's detective, Penrose (the fiction-on-fiction model for Tey's detective Alan Grant) and the involvement of his family in the murder story.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed, as ever, Upson's intrigues and period details, I prefer her other stories. But I appreciate the variety of settings of Upson's books from London to Cornwall to Portmeirion to Suffolk. There is a lot to recommend in this novel as in the others. I just have a preference for the theatre world featured in the other novels. But for Josephine Tey fans this is another good contribution to the series.
