9780062195432: Fear in the Sunlight

The fourth in Nicola Upson's delightful and atmospheric period crime series featuring Josephine Tey. Summer, 1936. The writer, Josephine Tey, joins her friends in Portmeirion, meeting with Alfred Hitchcock to sign film deal. Hitchcock has a few tricks up his sleeve to keep the holiday party entertained, but things get out of hand when a Hollywood actress is brutally murdered in a cemetery near the village. As fear and suspicion take over, Chief Inspector Archie Penrose becomes increasingly unsatisfied with the way the investigation is resolved. Several years later, another horrific murder, again linked to a Hitchcock movie, drives Penrose back to the scene of the original crime to uncover the shocking truth. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60% of the author's work and as low as 30% with characters and plotlines removed.

Book Description HarperTorch, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 202 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nicola Upson blends biography and fiction, excitement and menace, and a touch of Alfred Hitchcock in Fear in the Sunlight, a mystery starring real-life writer Josephine Tey. Summer, 1936: Josephine Tey joins her friends in the resort village of Portmeirion to celebrate her fortieth birthday. Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville, are there to sign a deal to film Josephine s novel, A Shilling for Candles, and Alfred Hitchcock has one or two tricks up his sleeve to keep the holiday party entertained--and expose their deepest fears. But things get out of hand when one of Hollywood s leading actresses is brutally slashed to death in a cemetery near the village. The following day, fear and suspicion take over in a setting where nothing--and no one--is quite what it seems. Based in part on the life of Josephine Tey--one of the most popular, best-loved crime writers of the Golden Age, Nicola Upson s Fear in the Sunlight features legendary film director Alfred Hitchcock as a prominent character--and features the classic suspense and psychological tension that fans of Hitchcock films love.
