9780571287758: London Rain (Josephine Tey)

Intrepid writer and amateur sleuth Josephine Tey returns in this sixth installment of Nicola Upson’s popular series—perfect for fans of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot and Jaqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs—that unfolds in 1930s London as England prepares to crown a new king.

London, 1937. Following the gloomy days of the abdication of King Edward VIII, the entire city is elated to welcome King George. Just one of the many planned festivities for the historic coronation is a BBC radio adaptation of Queen of Scots, and the original playwright, Josephine Tey, has been invited to sit in on rehearsals.

Soon, however, Josephine gets wrapped up in another sort of drama. The lead actress has been sleeping with Britain’s most venerable newsman, Anthony Beresford—and his humiliated wife happens to work in the building. The sordid affair seems to reach its bloody climax when Beresford is shot to death in his broadcasting booth at the deafening height of the coronation ceremony.

Josephine’s friend Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose thinks he has the case wrapped up. But after two more murders, it falls to Josephine to unravel a web of betrayal, jealousy, and long-held secrets, as she herself is caught in a love triangle of her own.

Charming and provocative, thick with the atmosphere of prewar England, London Rain is a captivating portrait of a city on the edge—and an unforgettable woman always one step ahead of her time.

From the Back Cover:

“Upson’s psychologically complex and twisty sixth whodunit...adroitly confounds the reader’s expectations, and her subtle and emotionally intelligent exploration of Josephine’s relationship with her lover, Marta, adds depth.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Following the gloomy days of King Edward VIII’s abdication, London is elated to welcome King George VI. Just one of the many festivities  celebrating the 1937 coronation is a BBC radio adaptation of Queen of Scots, and the original playwright, Josephine Tey, has been invited to sit in on rehearsals.

But Josephine’s play is not the only drama unfolding. Britain’s most venerable newsman, Anthony Beresford, is sleeping with the lead actress—and his humiliated wife works at the BBC. The sordid triangle reaches its climax when Beresford is shot to death in his broadcasting booth at the deafening height of the coronation ceremony.

Josephine’s friend Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose thinks he has the case wrapped up. But after two more murders, it falls to Josephine to unravel a web of betrayal, jealousy, and long-held secrets, as she herself is caught in a love triangle of her own.

Charming and provocative, thick with the atmosphere of prewar England, London Rain is a captivating portrait of a city on the edge—and an unforgettable woman always  one  step  ahead  of  her  time.

“Historical crime f iction at its very best.”—Sunday Times (London)

Descripción FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Main.. Language: English . Brand New Book. May, 1937, and London prepares to crown a new king. Bestselling writer Josephine Tey is in town to oversee a BBC radio production of her play, Queen of Scots - but adultery, treachery and pent-up jealousies stalk the corridors of Broadcasting House. At the height of the Coronation celebrations, Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose is called in to investigate the murder of one of the BBC s best-known broadcasters. A second victim - his mistress, and the play s leading actress - suggests that the motive lies close to home, but Josephine suspects that the killings are linked to a decade-old scandal. With Archie s hands tied by politics, and his attention taken by another, seemingly unrelated death, it is left to Josephine to get to the truth. As her relationship with Marta Fox reaches a turning point, she is forced to confront at first-hand the deadly consequences of love, deceit and betrayal. Rich in the atmosphere of coronation London and the early days of Broadcasting House, the sixth novel in Nicola Upson s Josephine Tey series sets an audacious, deeply personal crime against the backdrop of one of the most momentous days in British history.
