Angel with Two Faces - Nicola Upson


Nicola Upson


Angel with Two Faces by Nicola Upson.

This is the 2nd volume in the Josephine Tey series.
Inspector Archie Penrose has invited Josephine to his home - the Lodge - at Loe Estate in Cornwall for a holiday. Archie's uncle lives on and runs the estate, and  Archie's cousins are there as well. Josephine has planned to write a new crime novel, but a funeral and murder, and numerous of old secrets do not leave much peace for writing. I find so many  secrets and entanglements too much to my taste, but I found it amusing to read the chapters that take place in Minack Theater, and also the descriptions of landscapes in Cornwall. We went to see Minack Theater on a vacation in 2011, so that was nice to revisit.  The references to Josephine Tey's life and books is amusing too,when you have read her novels.
