HARPERCOLL

“As befits a tribute to the golden age of Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers et. al., there are plot twists, plot turns and red herrings aplenty.”
Time Out London

 

Real-life British mystery writer Josephine Tey returns as a fictional sleuth in Angel with Two Faces—the second atmospheric mystery in Nicola Upson’s wonderfully inventive series. In this riveting sequel to Expert in Murder, Tey, in league with intrepid policeman Detective Inspector Archie Penrose, is called upon to help unravel a dark and perplexing crime at a Cornwall country house and backstage at a local theater. Fans of P.D. James and of British noir in general will adore Angel with Two Faces—a traditional mystery with a twist—and this writer whom Ms. James herself calls, “A new and assured talent.”

While Upson mimics Tey's style well, the plot becomes oppressive as more and more secrets within a very small circle of rural friends and family members are revealed. It's difficult to like anyone, even the characters Upson tells the reader he or she should find sympathetic - too bad she doesn't really show the reader.

Much too long back story before the action gets started, but worth the effort and a change in venue makes this book a little bit of effort that evolves into the expected well constructed story.
