Publisher's Summary

In this atmospheric, intriguing historical mystery brimming with psychological tension, an unexpected inheritance plunges beloved British mystery author Josephine Tey into a disturbing puzzle of dark secrets eerily connecting the present and the past.

When Josephine Tey unexpectedly inherits Red Barn Cottage from her estranged godmother, the will stipulates that she must personally claim the house in the Suffolk countryside. But Josephine is not the only benefactor; a woman named Lucy Kyte is also in Hester's will. Sorting through the artifacts of her godmother's life, Josephine is intrigued by an infamous death committed on the cottage's grounds a century before. Yet this old crime - dubbed the Red Barn Murder - still seems to haunt the tight-knit village and its remote inhabitants. Is it just superstition, or is there a very real threat that is frightening the locals? Could the truth be related to the mysterious Lucy Kyte, who no one in the village admits to knowing? With a palpable sense of evil thickening around her, Josephine must untangle historic tragedy from present danger and prevent a deadly cycle from beginning once more.

    "More to this book than described."
    If you could sum up The Death of Lucy Kyte in three words, what would they be?

    Lots going on in this story, don't miss a good story.

    "Tedious"

    I bought books 1-4 in the series and have to say the only one I've enjoyed was book 1. This one was the third and I don't think I'll even bother starting with the 4th. I've already returned book 2 and will be returning the last 2 as well. Too much drama- the character Josephine Tey is a jumble of contradiction- one minute resolute and busting with integrity the next playing fast and loose with the truth. Really irritating! Bah! Narrator was great though!

    "Wrong narrator"

    Still don't like this narrator - Davina Porter started the series & she should have finished - her voices are 100% better
