An Expert in Murder

March, 1934. Travelling from Scotland to London to celebrate the triumphant final week of her play, Richard of Bordeaux, celebrated crime writer Josephine Tey befriends a fan on the train. But immediately after disembarking from the train, the young woman is murdered, and Tey finds herself plunged into a mystery as puzzling as any in her works.


Detective Inspector Archie Penrose has a hunch that a ruthless and spiteful murderer is roaming among London’s flamboyant theater set, and that the death is connected to Tey’s play. A second killing confirms Penrose’s suspicions.


Cleverly blending fact and fiction, An Expert in Murder is a tribute to one of the most enduringly popular crime writers and an atmospheric detective novel from a promising new talent.
