About the Author

Josephine Tey is one of the best-known and best-loved of all crime writers. She began to write full-time after the successful publication of her first novel, The Man in the Queue (1929), which introduced Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard. In 1937 she returned to crime writing with A Shilling for Candles, but it wasn't until after the Second World War that the majority of her crime novels were published. Josephine Tey died in 1952, leaving her entire estate to the National Trust.

Reviews

Tey, pen name of Scottish author Elizabeth MacKintosh, delivers one of the most highly acclaimed mysteries of all time. Originally released in the early 1950s, the book features inimitable Insp. Alan Grant of the Scotland Yard, who, hospitalized after a nasty fall, passes the time by analyzing a portrait of the infamous Richard III and subsequently investigating his bloody past-Richard III is said to have imprisoned (and later murdered) his nephews in the Tower of London. Seasoned narrator Derek Jacobi offers an astonishing reading steeped in classical tone and delivery. Jacobi is so comfortable in Grant's shoes, or should we say hospital gown, that he literally becomes the protagonist and makes a memorable story an unforgettable listening experience. A Heineman hardcover. (May) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
