Publisher's Summary

Called to the peaceful churchyard of St-John's-at-Hampstead, Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose faces one of the most audacious murders of his career, leading him to Cambridge, where both Josephine Tey and Archie's previous lover, Bridget, have settled down together.

It is uncovered that there has been a series of vicious attacks against women in town, spreading fear in the community. Archie and Josephine must race to stop another attack in this beautifully written, intricately plotted mystery.

    Story
    "Excellent addition to the series"

    This story takes the stories of MRJames as it’s starting point rather than a real life murder, and it works as well as Upson’s other Tey novels. The continuation of the emotional lives of the characters is believable, though I’m hoping it gets less rather than more complicated. It’s the problem with multiple volume tales, like soap operas they have to have things happen - though things don’t happen in real life. Should art imitate life? Yes - or what else is it for, and anyway it’s been the modus operandi of this series of novels.

    One small point - in real life people don’t nod. They say yes. Enid Blyton’s eponymous character does, but he’s a doll.

    "I loved it"

    I love this series, I have enjoyed all the books and I am looking forward to the next book. This one was sad and I missed some of the usual chemistry between the characters but it was good. I couldn't stop listening and when I reached the end I felt a real sense of loss.
