This is a beautiful literate book which I was so looking forward to reading so why have I been disappointed Let me say first that I ve never read any books by Nicola Upson maybe that is part of the problem I know she has used the character of Josephine Tey in at least two other books so as a new reader I expected some information about Josephine Tey some idea of her as a person but apart from the fact that she was a real person rather than a fictitious character I was left frustrated that I didn t get to know her or empathise with her in any way Also apart from the occasional mention of the First World War there was nothing to suggest that the story was set in the 30 s I certainly didn t get a feel for the period The mixing of fact and fiction didn t work for me either However the book has whet my appetite for and I will look for some of her other books in the hope that I can get a better feel for the author and her main character Josephine Tey
