S2 Ep 3: To Love and Be Wise by Josephine Tey

This fortnight we are talking about Josephine Tey’s To Love and Be Wise, starring the immensely lovable Detective Alan Grant. This is an underappreciated mystery novel by an underappreciated author, in our humble opinions!
Josephine Tey is the dark horse of this season, and the author we have shoehorned into our “Queens of Crime” category (displacing the better-known Agatha Christie). Her works are subtle and layered, and we hope that you will give them a try!

As always, spoiler alert! Read first, listen after.
