Description

Teased by some enigmatic lines of verse that the deceased had apparently scrawled on a newspaper, he follows a trail to the remote Outer Hebrides. I was into reading all the Josephine Tey at one point and really enjoying them, but now I can’t quite remember which ones.

This 1949 suspense novel is a gripping story of deception and hidden identity, set in post-WWII England among the upper classes. The Tichborne Case was a notorious legal dispute, which had gripped Victorian England in the 1860s and 1870s. Or to stay in his disguise, to forever move between truth and lie, to divide his true self from his environment? Something in her story doesn't ring true, but it takes solicitor turned amateur detective, Robert Blair, to solve the mystery.The Tichborne Claimant” centred around Roger Tichborne, the heir to the family’s title and fortunes. it is why i always took really extensive notes in lecture classes, and why i forget things people tell me allll the time.

Edinburgh-based Charco Press, founded by Samuel McDowell and Carolina Orloff, aims to change the current literary scene to make room for a kind of literature that has been overlooked’ and ‘expose the UK reader to new and exciting voices. Aunt Bee is typical of a generation of war-time women who had to be strong and unselfish for the sake of others. It’s often considered one of the best mystery books of all time and Tey is also known for Bret Farrar which she had written a couple years before The Daughter of Time and I’d been wanting to read ever since. It was eight years since 13-year-old Patrick Ashby vanished and was thought to have drowned himself. So, for the relief of my connection-obsessed mind, I downloaded Kingsley's piece of historical fiction and took a look at it.Anyway, they’re all pleased to see him and immediately taken in – except for the twin, Simon, who is rather stand-offish and the last to be convinced that Brat is Patrick. As a young teenager, I’d longed to be part of that horsey set, and listening to this gave me that odd nostalgia for something I’d never had (I bet there’s a German expression for that). The Ashbys are wealthy by other means with no money problems and so do not need to raise horses, the impostor who plays Tony is not a long-lost cousin and the character of Uncle Charles does not appear.
