When Josephine Tey inherited a remote Suffolk cottage from her godmother, it came full of secrets. There were the infamous Red Barn murders, committed in the grounds a century before, and still casting a shadow over the village. And there was Lucy Kyte, the mysterious beneficiary of her godmother’s will, who no-one in the close-knit village would admit to knowing.
Trapped in this isolated community and surrounded by shadows of obsession, abuse and deceit, can Josephine untangle history from present danger and prevent a deadly cycle beginning once again?

Nicola Upson leads you into the characters so well you start to want to know them more and more. Twists and Turns do not stray deeply away from the plot as some can but provide depth
Lucy Kyte as the narrative builds you begin to see the world as she did
Sandra Duncan is a reliable narrator you always feel you have read the book in your own voice.
Bit of laugh and cry with this one but always left feeling complete. Not cheated at the end of a book as you can be with some other books
Have enjoyed all of Nicola Upsons books a good mystery not all blood and gore solid detective work with Josephine Upson
