The Death of Lucy Kyte by Nicola Upson. 'Who is Lucy Kyte?' Macdonald shrugged. 'Your guess is as good as mine. Lucy Kyte is a mystery.'
Nicola Upson was born in Suffolk and read English at Downing College, Cambridge. She has worked in theatre and as a freelance journalist, and is the author of two non-fiction works and the recipient of an Escalator Award from the Arts Council England. Her debut novel, An Expert in Murder, was the first in a series of crime novels whose main character is Josephine Tey - one of the leading authors of Britain's Golden Age of crime writing. She lives with her partner in Cambridge and spends much of her time in Cornwall.
