5.0 out of 5 stars Tey at Her Best, 6 Jun 2011
This review is from: To Love And Be Wise (Kindle Edition)
This is Josephine Tey at her best. The action revolves around the disappearance of Leslie Searle a good looking young American photographer. Following a chance meeting at a party Searle is invited to stay in Salcott a village with an artists colony. He and Walter Whitmore a radio commentator set off on a canoe trip on the local river. Halfway through the trip Searle disappears without trace.

Inspector Alan Grant of Sctland Yard arrives to investigate. It is not unfamiliar territory for him as he has already met Searle briefly and Marta Hallard, an actress friend, has a house in the village. The theories surrounding Searle's disappearance are numerous. Did he drown accidentally, had he been murdered or kidnapped, or had he just disappeared of his own free will? Murder suspects are many. Grant eventually solves the case using considerable intuition as well as his detective skills. I enjoyed this book as much for the characters and setting as for the plot though the twist at the end is excellent. As always with Tey there is great elegance in the construction and writing of the novel.
