Publisher's Synopsis

Josephine Tey's page-turning classic thriller brims with suspense, mystery and intrigue. Gripping psychological suspense from the Golden Age of crime fiction.

'The most interesting of the great female writers of the Golden Age. This disarmingly low-key tale of a mysterious disappearance is the perfect introduction to her world.' Val McDermid

'The definition of a classic, a real cut above. It hasn't aged a day.' Joseph Knox

'Her wry storytelling and sheer skill of her plotting which will leave you breathless from the big reveal, and desperate to re-read.' Sarah Hilary

'Permanent classics in the detective field…no superlatives are adequate' New York Times

It was rumoured that Hollywood stars would kill for the privilege of being photographed by the good-looking, talented and fashionable portrait photographer Leslie Searle.

But what would bring such a gifted figure to the English village backwater of Salcott St Mary? And why - and how - did he disappear?

If a crime had been committed, was it murder ... fraud ... or simply a macabre practical joke? Inspector Alan Grant determines to uncover the truth.
