Publisher's Summary

May 1937, and London prepares to crown a new king. At the height of the Coronation celebrations, Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose is called to the BBC to investigate the murder of a famous broadcaster, a death which Josephine Tey suspects is linked to a decade-old scandal. With Archie's hands tied by politics, it is left to Josephine to get to the truth. Soon she is forced to confront at first-hand the deadly consequences of love, deceit and betrayal.

I bought this book because it was on offer and it looked interesting. What a find! I loved it and I couldn't put it down. It really is historical fiction at its best. There is a strong plot, interesting and well drawn characters and the narration is excellent. I was very disappointed when I got to the end, but I have since found that there are a number of other books in the series. I had started one of the most recent books in the series which just goes to show that it's not necessary to read the whole series because this is a strong book in its own right. I have already bought some of the other books.
