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.

Best story I have read in ages
The characters are so believable and are very likeable too. The story is gripping and the narrator is fantastic you almost believe it is a play as she brings the character to life. A great read can’t wait for the next book.
