A gripping historical mystery
Den har utnämnts som en av världens bästa deckare någonsin, men jag fattar inte riktigt grejen. Kanske bör man ha bättre förståelse för det brittiska kungahusets personer, deras brott och straff för att kunna njuta?

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.
