Publisher's Summary

When a woman's body washes up on an isolated stretch of beach on the southern coast of England, Scotland Yard's Inspector Alan Grant is on the case. But the inquiry into her death turns into a nightmare of false leads and baffling clues. Was there anyone who didn't want lovely screen actress Christine Clay dead?

Loved it, well thought through and amusing.

Please give us more Josephine Tey. She really is one of the best there is.

Anti Semitic in the extreme

Amazingly dated and racist writer
Who knew?
I loved the Richard the 3rd but the 2 Inspector Grants I read are just crazy racist.
I do not consider myself terribly PC when it comes to literature , but my word....!

Language

It's a good book and well read. My objection is the use of extremely foul and unnecessary words. Story would have been A+ without it and it certainly wasn't necessary for the story.
