Josephine Tey began writing full-time after the successful publication of her first novel, The Man in the Queue (1929), which introduced Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard. She died in 1952, leaving her entire estate to the National Trust.Review:
San Francisco Chronicle Nobody can beat Miss Tey at characterization or elegance of style; this novel's a beauty.
The Times Literary Supplement (London) Worth reading for its ingenious denouement alone.
