4.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Mystery, 8 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: To Love And Be Wise (Paperback)
Inspector Alan Grant meets American photographer Leslie Searle at a party his close friend, actress Marta Hallard, has invited him to, to celebrate the launch of her country neighbour's latest bestseller. Searle asks to be introduced to the author, and so it comes about that the good-looking young man is invited down to Salcott St Mary village, where author, actress and other notables live when not in London or other cosmopolitan places. The next time Grant comes across Searle's name is when he is called down to Salcott to investigate his disappearance.
Searle has been causing a few waves amongst the locals during his stay yet there are precious little clues as to his whereabouts, and as yet, no body. The river running through Salcott is notoriously greedy in giving up its victims. But even so, Grant's famous perception is prickling. It's too neat, somehow, this situation, too devoid of any clues or answers.
He will set himself to discover just what happened to Leslie Searle on that fateful night, and why, with his usual flair and quiet intelligence, plus the assistance of Sergeant Williams and the lovely, unassuming Marta at her Mill House.

'To Love And Be Wise' is another great mystery featuring Inspector Grant, with plenty of suspense, character play, very clever hidden clues and a great denouement, all delivered in Josephine Tey's wonderfully readable style. What a shame she didn't write more books before she left us!
