Críticas:

'Nicola Upson's novels featuring the Golden Age crime writer Josephine Tey are always a delight.' (Joan Smith The Sunday Times)

It was a moment of ground-breaking inspiration when Nicola Upson settled on Josephine Tey, one of the finest writers of classic detective fiction, as the heroine of her mystery novels...In giving Tey a role as a mystery-solver as well as a creator, Upson fills out her personality with a gay romance, sensitively portrayed, and a platonic relationship with a rising star of Scotland Yard...London Rain is the sixth novel in a series which still has a long way to run. (Barry Turner Daily Mail)

Upson's London is evocative and there is enough insight into the characters' inner workings to satisfy readers uninterested in superficial crime fiction. ( The Big Issue in the North)

'I am a newcomer to the world of Upson and Tey, but never felt at a disadvantage here. The tale is liberally peppered with back story which will bring you up to speed without hindering the narrative flow and I soon grew to know and like the main protagonists. But it is the historical context which I found most compelling, with a combination of real life and fiction that is subtly mixed and finely judged. I was truly transported back in time and although the sun was shining outside as I read this book, I almost felt like putting up an umbrella, so wet and well defined were the scenes.' ( Crime Fiction Lover)

'Upson has clearly done her research painstakingly and the results are impressive. So -- another winner, which as you can see I enjoyed tremendously. ' - (Harriet Devine Harriet Devine's blog)

Upson supplies lots of fascinating, carefully researched period detail and information, as fact and fiction are seamlessly combined. (Jessica Mann Literary Review)

Reseña del editor:

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.
