The Dead of Winter Nicola Upson

Nicola Upson continues her series featuring Golden Age crime writer Josephine Tey and embraces the tradition of the classic country estate mystery in this thrilling homage to the genre. The Dead of Winter is a festive whodunit set in December 1938, as storm clouds of impending war close over Europe. Tey, her lover Marta and her friend Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose of Scotland Yard gather with other guests, including a world famous film star, for a Christmas house party in the castle on the tidal isle of St Michael’s Mount, and are cut off in a blizzard. They have only been in residence a few hours when one of their number is brutally slain. This is a Christmas treat to bring comfort and joy if you enjoy the thrill of the chase and fancy racing the detective to unmask a killer.
