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
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.
