Publisher's Summary

May 1937, and London prepares to crown a new king. At the height of the Coronation celebrations, Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose is called to the BBC to investigate the murder of a famous broadcaster, a death which Josephine Tey suspects is linked to a decade-old scandal. With Archie's hands tied by politics, it is left to Josephine to get to the truth. Soon she is forced to confront at first-hand the deadly consequences of love, deceit and betrayal.

Historical snapshot - beautifully read

If you could sum up London Rain in three words, what would they be?

Historic, intriguing, enjoyable

What did you like best about this story?

Familiar characters again bought beautifully to life by Sandra duncan

What does Sandra Duncan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Excellent range of accents and voices bring the characters to life - this is her 3rd book in this series and her enjoyment of the genre is obvious

Any additional comments?

A historic real event captured and surrounded in fiction makes this of particular interest

Wow!

I bought this book because it was on offer and it looked interesting. What a find! I loved it and I couldn't put it down. It really is historical fiction at its best. There is a strong plot, interesting and well drawn characters and the narration is excellent. I was very disappointed when I got to the end, but I have since found that there are a number of other books in the series. I had started one of the most recent books in the series which just goes to show that it's not necessary to read the whole series because this is a strong book in its own right. I have already bought some of the other books.

Great performance

Another great narration of an enthralling Josephine Tey mystery. Can't wait for the next one!
