As most of the reviews here are for other Josephine Tey novels, I've no idea where my remarks on "Miss Pym Disposes" will end up! Because I'd heard that it wasn't really a detective story at all, and that it was more a "novel of character" (as they used to say) set in a physical education college for young ladies, I'd decided to give "Miss Pym Disposes" a miss. But then I read Jennifer Morag Henderson's biography of Tey earlier this year, and decided to give Miss Pym a go - and discovered that while, yes, it's not really a detective story, and there isn't even a hint of a crime until quite near the end, it's a superb, beautifully-written and utterly compelling novel. It's now my favourite Josephine Tey book - and I think she was the greatest British detective story writer of the 20th Century. I absolutely love "The Franchise Affair", "The Daughter of Time" and "The Singing Sands" - but this is greater than any of those. An unexpected delight.

A perfect read. You never know where a Josephine Tey tale will take you
So well written, so enjoyable, so amusing
I always learn something or somethings from her books
Oh if only there were more
Best story writer in this case murder I've ever come across
And I know many earlier and current ( Val McDermid) agree
Approaching end of last one
What a writer the breadth of her knowledge is extradinary
As is her imaginative clever mind and her sense of humour
So good

I found this book started out with a very intriguing couple of chapters then for some reason my enthusiasm waned till the end of the book when it picked up again.
Have read and re-read her books many times and love them but this is not one of my favourites. I have awarded it more stars than I think the book is worth simply because it was written by Josephine Tey.

Josephine Tey's ability to spin a great yarn is vindicated again here in this great story, that is held together by who owns a lost button. I love Inspector Grant mysteries and wish there were more, he is such a great character.

I read all of Josephine Tey's books many years ago , and on an impulse decided to try one again just to see how it stacked up with more modern crime stories. To my pleasure I found it was still a very good read and enjoyed it very much shall certainly be ordering some more in the near future. The purchasing from this site was very satisfactory and will certainly use them again.

Terrific story, of loss, and murder, with Alan Grant trying to sort out the murder. The title is a tease but is explained and so atmospheric. If you not read Tey before this is a good one, unless you want to go in order.......

I read this book many years ago and decided to revisit it. It is the gentle school of crime, no violence but an excellently plotted story with quirky characters and a twist in the tail. It stood up to re reading and I would recommend it as a fascinating read.
