Secrets of Winter : A Josephine Tey Mystery
by Upson, Nicola

Josephine and Archie gather with friends to celebrate the holidays on 1938 Cornwall's stormy coast before the festivities are interrupted by two brutal deaths on St. Michael's Mount and the arrival of a world-famous film star.

Nicola Upson was born in Suffolk and read English at Downing College, Cambridge. She has worked in theatre and as a freelance journalist, and is the author of two non-fiction works and the recipient of an Escalator Award from the Arts Council England. Her debut novel, An Expert in Murder, was the first in a series of crime novels to feature Josephine Tey-one of the leading authors of Britain's age of crime-writing. Her research for the books has included many conversations with people who lived through the period and who knew Josephine Tey well, most notably Sir John Gielgud. The book was dramatised by BBC Scotland for Woman's Hour, and praised by PD James as marking "the arrival of a new and assured talent". Nicola lives with her partner in Cambridge and Cornwall
