Nicola Upson blew me away with 'An Expert In Murder', and now with 'Two For Sorrow' she's done it again. I found the switch between past and present a little confusing at times but that could have been because of the gaps between my listening sessions. As in 'Expert', the protagonist is Josephine Tey, a fascinating character in her own right, and extremely well-drawn and researched by Upson. The mood of both periods - the first few years of the 20th century and the mid-thirties - is beautifully evoked; the atmosphere of the jail is suitably chilling - in both senses of the word. Equally chilling is the murder of one of the characters, terribly cruel and vivid, yet so well written that, squeamish as I am, I found myself pinned to the tableau that Upson has created in this scene by the sheer excellence of the writing and narration. Nicola Upson is now right up there at the top of my list of favourite crime writers.

I couldn't stop listening!

This is a wonderful book! It grabbed my attention from the first chapter and I couldn't stop listening. The narrator is excellent and the plot deals with historical issues while weaving in issues which are still relevant to the present day audience.

The author has created a cast of believable and compelling characters. I am really enjoying this series of books and I'm looking forward to the next book. I will also look out for other books with this narrator, she is excellent and she managed to bring a wide variety of characters to life in this story.
